It can’t really come as a surprise to anyone that some of the contestants that appear on the Bachelor franchise are just out for their 15 minutes! And…well, for some of them, it works! This list takes a look back at those Bachelor and Bachelorette stars that successfully or unsuccessfully used their time on the show to create a career in show biz!
12. Chris Soules
“Prince Farming” seemed like a dream come true for Whitney Bischoff when she was chosen at the end of The Bachelor season 19 as his fiancé, but it didn’t take long for Mr. Soules of Iowa to quickly board the celebrity-bandwagon and sign up for his next reality show. Chris appeared on Dancing with the Stars with Whitey Carson, and the relationship extinguished the sparks of romance with Bischoff and ignited the fires of jealousy! Soules and Bischoff ended their engagement and Chris began a briefly-lived relationship with Carson. Luckily for Bischoff karma had its way and Carson ended the relationship due to the Bachelor babe’s fame-hungry appetites. Chris has since appeared on various Bachelor episodes to share his wisdom and opinions, and has also been a contestant on Worst Cooks in America. This year, he appeared in the TV Movie The Bachelor at 20: A Celebration of Love. Yep…keep those reality TV parts coming!
