Don't get mad if you see your ex on TV, San Antonio ladies.

Alamo City native Gabe Baker is set to be a contestant on a new The Bachelor spinoff titled The Bachelor: Listen to Your Heart. The name isn't an ode to the 1988 Roxette hit — at least, we don't think so. Instead, the show is all about musicians finding love.

Here's what you should know about Baker, who's since left San Antonio for Houston. The 28-year-old graduated from MacArthur High School and later Rice University, where he played football. He's active in his church ministry and plays the cello, though his main act is a mix of soul and funk.

How did y'all let him get away?

Baker's faith seems likely to come into play during his stint on the reality show. According to his bio on the website, Baker is looking for his "Proverbs: 31 woman, someone he can honor and trust with his heart."

Que cute.

Baker won't be the only Texan on the show. He'll be joined by 23-year-old Mariana and 38-year-old Jack, both from Dallas, as well as 25-year-old Ruby and 27-year-old Sheridan, both from Austin.

Viewers will be able to watch Baker and company when the show premieres Monday, April 13 on ABC.
