NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — Move over, Chris Harrison. Nashville's got a even cuter version of "The Bachelor" heading to town.

The Nashville Zoo at Grassmere said in an Instagram post that Rooben the Kangaroo is coming to Music City to find love.

"Rooben... is stopping in Nashville on a hunt for for love," the post said. "Although he'll be behind the scenes spending time with some special ladies, you can follow his journey on Nashville's season of The Bacheloroo."

Rooben is a red kangaroo from the Potter Park Zoo in Michigan. According to the Potter Park Zoo's website, the kangaroos there enjoy ‘boxing’ in the yard, sunbathing, and rolling in dirt.

Only time will tell whether Rooben will find his perfect marsupial match in Music City, meeting the perfect female to make joeys with.
