Meet Denver's Mark Huebner, Bachelorette hopeful

Jillian Harris, a 29-year-old restaurant designer from Vancouver, Canada, was given an especially brutal heave-ho by Jason Mesnick on the last season of The Bachelor -- a move so nasty that Colorado's own Bachelorette prize, Ryan Sutter, felt compelled to weigh in. Fortunately, Harris received a reward for becoming an object of national pity: She's the season five star of The Bachelorette, which launches on Monday, May 18 -- and among her suitors is Mark Huebner, who's described as a "pizza entrepreneur" from Denver.

Hard to tell what that means at this point. Huebner's LinkedIn profile says he's the managing partner of Denver Pizza Company, but there's no website listed for the joint. Instead, there's a link to Motive Branding, located in Cherry Creek South, which describes itself as "an independent marketing agency that offers inventive branding products and services to strengthen the presence of your business among its target audience." But a Google search for "Denver Pizza Company" turns up a small piece of evidence about its possible existence -- namely a Craigslist ad recruiting "Delivery Drivers, Cooks, and Managers at our location in the Golden Triangle located just south of Downtown Denver."

Don't let this one get away, Jillian. Looks like you can get in on the ground floor.
