9 Popular Bachelorette Leads: Where Are They Now?
We get so suckered in by our beloved show The Bachelorette and we try not to shed too many tears when the seasons come to an end. However, we can’t help but wonder about our favorite Bachelorette leads and what happens to them when the fame fades away and the cameras stop rolling. This list takes a look at some of the most popular contestants and just what they’ve been up to since their time on the series!
9. Trista Rehn
Trista Rehn got her start as a Miami Heat cheerleader and served as one of the most beloved bachelorettes of all time after being rejected by Alex Michel on season 1 of The Bachelor! We were thrilled when she found her prince charming in suitor Ryan Sutter, and even more stoked when the happy couple included us in their nuptials on the three-part special Trista and Ryan’s Wedding. The newly wed continued her path down reality television lane and competed on Dancing with the Stars and Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars. She’s also become the proud momma of 2 children, Maxwell and Blakesley, and even published a book titled Happily Ever After: The Life-changing Power of a Grateful Heart. Not only do we continue to adore, she’s also raked in some of the highest earnings of any Bachelor franchise contestant!
8. Meredith Phillips
Meredith Phillips was our bachelorette on season 2 of the series after being the runner up on Bob Guiney’s season of The Bachelor. America fell for her down to earth nature and enjoyed watching her fall for prince charming, but she seemingly broke Ian McGee. The couple broke up a year after the show’s premiere, but that didn’t stop Meredith from finding happiness. After coming forward with her battle with alcoholism, this leading lady concurred all including the culinary world when she made her passion a career and became a professional chef! Meredith has published an endearingly titled cookbook, The Date Night Cookbook. She’s also co-president of ProChef, Inc.
