This KPMG Senior Associate Will Try Wooing the Next Bachelorette

As perhaps some of you have heard me mention, I don't watch much TV. And I definitely don't watch reality TV, but Adrienne does keep up with the Kardashians and various other idiots who take residence inside the box, so I'm vaguely aware (but not really) of what goes on. However, when a Big 4 employee has a shot at stardom outside of their chosen profession that does pique my interest (but not enough to actually get cable). We had Steve Beguhn from PwC on American Idol. We also had Ernst & Young's Nick DeSanto trying out for Glee (isn't this scripted Idol?). And now we have Tony DeSarro, a KPMG senior associate, going on the next season of the Bachelorette that stars Emily…right, who cares?  

Anyway, Tony works as a Senior Associate with the firm's Forensic Technology Services group in Atlanta and has been there for over five years, according to his LinkedIn profile. He went to school at Utica College of Syracuse University where he got a BS in criminal justice and an MS in cybersecurity (Sam Antar is not impressed). He was involved in various activities including soccer and the ACFE student chapter, and served as the President of the Economic Crime Investigation Student Association (yes, it's real). 

But is all that enough to be a reality TV stud that will sweep a young lady hand-picked by TV executives for her all-American appeal off her feet? Of course not! Tony's reality-star superpower is music. His website DeSarro Music doesn't seem to be current, but there's very little time for the studio when you're locked inside the House of Klynveld. But luckily, he has a few videos up on YouTube and because you're dying to know, here's a little taste of Tony on the piano: 

Is he up to Beguhn or DeSanto standards? I'm not one to criticize such things, but – YOU! – you people are the ultimate judge and jury around here, so share your thoughts below. Good luck, Tony.
