PHILADELPHIA (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – The latest Bachelorette reject didn’t find love, but he found his new life’s calling as a Turkish olive oil wrestler.

Philadelphia lawyer Craig Robinson was booted from the dating show this past Monday (Jun. 28) despite his impressive fighting skills.

While visiting Istanbul, Turkey, bachelorette Ali Fedotowsky made Robinson fight a bunch of greased up, half- naked, professional olive oil wrestlers for her affections, a weird task that he crushed.

The lawyer beat out all other contestants for a date with Fedotowsky, and now he’s taking the oil wrestling world by storm.

Robinson jokes that he’s “dominating the circuit” and can be found daily on the front page of the Turkish sports section in newspapers.

He adds, “I don’t even practice law anymore. Just olive oil wrestling.”

Robinson admits the strange sport is tough, though, and he was “really sore” the day after the greasy TV showdown.

The Bachelorette airs Mondays on ABC.
