Have you ever wondered what has come about of the 13 Bachelors who have graced our TV screens? Where are they now and what have they been up too? It is safe to say that one thing most of them have not been doing is staying with the ladies they chose. The fourth season introduced us to Bob Guiney. My personal favorite Bachelor up to date. Bob married Rebecca Budig who plays Greenlee on All My Children. They wed in 2004.
The Bachelor first aired in March of 2002. Yep, it has been around that long. You may remember the very first bachelor, Alex Michel from Virginia. He was a Harvard graduate. After The Bachelor Alex did a variety of things. One of those being the spokesperson for the Match.com website. I wonder how that is working out for him? Has he found his match?
The second season of The Bachelor introduced us to Aaron Buerge from Butler, Missouri. Some interesting facts about Aaron is that he the oldest of three boys. He also has his pilots license and he can play the piano. Aaron is currently the Senior Vice President of his family’s bank.
Andrew Firestone filled The Bachelor spot in it’s third season. Andrew is the great grandson of the Firestone tire guru. The Firestones are no longer involved in the tire business. In July of 2008 Andrew married Ivana Bozilovic. They are expecting their first child in April 2009.
The fifth season of The Bachelor introduced us to Jesse James Palmer from Canada. Jesse James was a back up quarterback for the New York Giants. He also played for the San Francisco 49ers.
Byron Paul Velvick was the sixth season Bachelor. Byron was from Downey, California. An interesting fact about Byron is that he was a professional bass fisherman for 13 years. It is interesting to know that Byron and Mary Delgado (who he proposed to on The Bachelor) are still together, although the pair are not married.
Season 7 was Charlie O’Connell from New York. He is the brother of TV actor Jerry O’Connell. It seems things are looking up for some of the Bachelors. Charlie O’Connell proposed to Sarah Brice on his season of The Bachelor. Although they broke up in 2007 they got back together in late 2008 and are now planning to wed.
Travis Stork graced our screens in the eight season of The Bachelor. Travis is from Colorado. On the season finale of The Bachelor Travis chose Sarah Stone, who just so happened to live a few blocks away from his residence. This oversight caused the relationship to end due to a contractual agreement to stay away from each other until the final episode. Travis was asked to host the new CBS show “The Doctors.” A show that answers health questions. You can catch it on your local CBS station.
The lucky man to receive the honor of being the ninth Bachelor in season 9 was Prince Lorenzo Borghese. Prince Lorenzo currently resides in New York City and is the founder of the Royal Treatment Italian Pet Spa.
Season 10 Bachelor was Andy Baldwin. He is a United States Naval Officer. Andy is currently in Washington D.C. where he is a Navy medicine advocate. He is also single.
The eleventh season of the Bachelor brought us Brad Womack from Austin, Texas. He ultimately made Bachelor history when he rejected all of the Bachelorettes.
Season twelve introduced us to Matt Grant from London. Matt is currently with Sarah Robarts.
Don’t think I need to elaborate on season 13. I think we all know what Jason Mesnick is up to these days.
