Top 20 Attractive Contestants Of "The Bachelor"
Finding love in the modern world can be challenging, making shows like The Bachelor incredibly appealing. The reality TV show features an eligible bachelor paired with a group of women who hope to win his heart. Each week, a woman is eliminated, until the only the bachelor’s future wife remains. Here are the 20 most attractive ladies to have participated.
20. RAVEN GATES – THE DARK-HAIRED BEAUTY WHO FOUGHT FOR NICK VIALL’S HEART
Raven came close to a happy ending as the runner-up of season 21, but actually found true love when she returned for the 4th season of Bachelor in Paradise, which she won. Raven met her fiancé, Adam Gottschalk, on the show (although the engagement happened later, in May 2019). Sadly, Raven has confirmed that the wedding won’t be televised.
19. TIA BOOTH – UNLUCKY IN LOVE
Tia Booth participated in season 22 of The Bachelor in 2018, but was eliminated in the eighth week of the series. She returned again for the fifth season of Bachelor in Paradise, only to be eliminated again in the fourth week! While she was unlucky on the show, Tia went later dated Cory Cooper, but the two have since split.
18. KAITLYN BRISTOWE – IN A SPIN FOR LOVE
Former spinning instructor Kaitlyn was initially a participant in the 19th season of the show, before returning as the star of season 11 of The Bachelorette – how the tables turned! Since participating in the show, Kaitlyn created her own range of hair scrunchies, and she is currently dating a banker (and neither of her onscreen love interests).
17. CLARE CRAWLEY – THE FIFTH TIME IS THE CHARM?
Clare is basically The Bachelor royalty, having participated in the show three times. Clare was the runner-up of the show in season 18 and returned for the first season of Bachelor in Paradise, which she quit. In the second season of Bachelor in Paradise, our girl returned, only to be eliminated in the third week.
But wait, there’s more! Clare was back for yet another reappearance in The Bachelor Winter Games, which she also quit. With a long track record of misses, we can only hope that she’ll have better luck as the Bachelorette. We’ll have to wait and see how season 16 plays out, but hopefully, Clare finds the One. Holding thumbs!
16. TAYLOR NOLAN – SMART IS SEXY
Taylor is more than just a pretty face – a contestant in the 21st season of the show, she also holds a Master of Science degree! While this didn’t stop her from being eliminated in the fifth week, fans welcomed her back for season 4 of Bachelor in Paradise, which she won! Sadly, she and bachelor Derek Peth have since split.
15. VANESSA GRIMALDI – THE ONE WHO WON VIALL’S HEART
Vanessa beat Raven for the winning place in season 21 of The Bachelor, complete with Nick Viall’s proposal. Unusually, Vanessa didn’t want to get engaged on the show, preferring to spend time getting to know Nick offscreen; unsurprisingly, the engagement was called off in 2017. Thankfully, Vanessa is now happily dating someone, and wedding bells may be on the horizon.
14. ASHLEY SALTER – LUCKY IN LOVE
Ashley Salter took part in season 19 of the show, but was eliminated in the fourth week. Determined, she returned to the show in the second season of Bachelor in Paradise, only to be eliminated in the fifth week. Despite this, Ashley found true love in the form of her college sweetheart.
After the wedding in 2016, Ashley became Mrs. Brannen, and the couple has been happy together since. The couple welcomed a son the same year, followed by their second child in 2019, and their newest family member, a daughter, was born earlier this year. That’s a happy ending if I ever saw one!
13. ANDI DORFMAN – LEGALLY LEGENDARY
Attorney Andi Dorfman was a contestant on the 18th season of The Bachelor until she quit the show in the ninth week. Despite this, she was chosen as The Bachelorette for that show’s tenth season, where she became engaged to the winner, Josh Murray. Alas, this relationship did not work out, and the couple called it quits a year later.
Andi has decided to work on self-love since the show and is an athlete and fitness freak when she’s not working in the District Attorney’s office. In addition, she’s written a book about her experiences on the show, followed by a follow-up autobiography. Obviously, Andi is a very talented woman!
12. WHITNEY FRANSWAY – WHERE THERE'S A WILL THERE'S A WAY
Whitney Fransway was one of the hopeful women in the 21st season of The Bachelor. Unfortunately, she was eliminated in the sixth week. However, like many of the other ladies on this list, she made her return to the show in the sixth season of Bachelor in Paradise, only to leave!
When Whitney first appeared on the show, she was a Pilates instructor, and since leaving, she has not only found love (about which she’s pretty tight-lipped) but has also gone on to build her own brand and focus on her website.
11. LAUREN BURNHAM - RUNNER UP BUT FIRST CHOICE
Lauren Burnham was a season 22 contestant, who made it to the runner-up of the show. However, in an unexpected and adorable twist, that season’s Bachelor, Arie Luyendyk, Jr., ditched the winning lady to start dating Lauren. In May 2019, the happy couple welcomed their first daughter to the world.
10. SIENNE FLEMING - TOO BUSY FOR LOVE
Sienne was part of Lauren’s group in the show’s 22nd season, so we already know that she didn’t meet Mr. Right on the show (she was eliminated in the seventh week). Before appearing on the show, Sienne earned a degree in economics from Yale, and since leaving the show, works as a successful realtor.
9. EMILY MAYNARD – A BACHELORETTE NO LONGER
Emily Maynard first appeared as a contestant on the 15th season of The Bachelor, which she won, along with a ring from Brad Womack. However, this relationship didn’t last and Emily returned as season 12’s Bachelorette. Despite not finding her future husband on the show, Emily eventually married a man from North Carolina, and the couple has four beautiful children.
8. COURTNEY ROBERTSON – HAVE YOUR CAKE AND EAT IT
Courtney participated in and won season 16 of The Bachelor, which ended with Ben Flajnik proposing. Despite accepting, the couple later split, and Courtney has since moved on to greater things. After a sting hosting a reality show and writing a book, Courtney met and married the man who is now the father of her first child.
7. KRISTINA SCHULMAN - TO BE CONTINUED
Kristina Schulman featured in season 21 for seven weeks. She returned for the fourth and sixth season of Bachelor in Paradise, but quit both. Despite this, fans took to social media to demand that she be considered as the next Bachelorette, but that’s not something she wants. Hopefully, she finds her niche soon.
6. SELMA ALAMERI – NO LOVE LOST
Selma was a lucky hopeful in season 17 of the show but sadly didn’t make it past week six. Despite this, she found and married the man of her dreams in 2016, and the couple welcomed their first child, a beautiful baby girl, to the world in 2020.
5. CORINNE OLYMPIOS – THE BLONDE BOMBSHELL
Corinne participated in the show in its 21st season, and returned for the 4th season of Bachelor in paradise, but left after only a week. Since the show, Corinne has focused on her career, becoming a model, and started to work in the music industry. She is also in a happy relationship with a realtor.
4. JEN SAVIANO – A BOSS BABE
Jen first made her appearance in season 20 of The Bachelor and returned for Bachelor in Paradise’s third and sixth seasons. Unlucky with love in all three seasons, she decided to focus on herself and her career. In fact, Jen is the co-owner of a successful travel blog. Slay, queen!
3. DANIELLE LOMBARD – SELF LOVE IS THE BEST LOVE
Season 21 of The Bachelor certainly seems to have been the best-looking, as Danielle was also a participant of the season, but was eliminated in week six. After a revival in Bachelor in Paradise, she quit in week 4, ending her time with The Bachelor. Since then, she’s been killing it in the business world, building her own successful brand.
2. ASHLEE FRAZIER – LADY LOVE OFFSCREEN
AshLee Frazier was part of the 17th season of The Bachelor and the first season of Bachelor in Paradise but won neither. Since leaving the show, she has gotten married and is focusing on her family. In 2020, she announced that she and her husband were expecting their second child. Happy endings are the best!
1. SAMANTHA STEFFEN - A STAR IS BORN
The number one spot on our list is reserved for Samantha, from the 19th season of The Bachelor. While unsuccessful in the show, she returned for and won the second season of Bachelor in Paradise, with Nick Peterson. However, the couple did not get as far as the alter, and Samantha has since started hosting reality TV shows.
WHO’S THE NEXT BEAUTY TO WATCH OUT FOR?
With seemingly endless variations of the highly successful Bachelor franchise, there’s bound to be a whole lot more beautiful ladies who catch the eye. Do you think these ladies should make another appearance, or is it time for some new faces?
