The winner of Colton Underwood’s season caused quite the controversy with her job title after fans learned that she wasn’t actually a speech pathologist, but a speech assistant. After the premiere in January 2019, she took to Instagram to clear up any confusion. “I want to clarify, I am a grad student (graduate 2021) and a current speech ASSISTANT (SLPA). It was encouraged I leave off the word assistant for lack of confusion, but I do realize how much one word can mean.”
Job title: Publicist
The brunette beauty may have been the technical winner of Arie Luyendyk’s season of The Bachelor, but he infamously had a change of heart and ended up chasing after his runner-up, Lauren Burnham. His reputation was so tarnished after his season wrapped, he certainly could’ve used Becca as a publicist!
Job title: Technology salesperson
While we didn’t learn much about Lauren’s job (or really anything about her, for that matter) during her time on Arie Luyendyk’s season, she apparently worked in technology sales.
Job title: Special needs teacher
The winner of Nick Viall’s season shared during her intro package that she was destined to do two things with her life: be a teacher and a mother.
Job title: Flight Attendant
The winner of Ben Higgins’ season paid tribute to her job as a flight attendant when she came out of the limo on the very first night. After giving the lovable lead a pair of wings, she told him that she was excited for their journey to “take off.”
Job title: Fertility nurse
Chris Soules got an up close and personal look at Whitney’s profession as a fertility nurse during her hometown date, where she tricked him into thinking she was going to test his sperm.
Job title: Pediatric nurse
Nikki spoke frequently about her career throughout her time on Juan Pablo Galavis’ season. On the first night, she came out of the limo with a stethoscope and had the soccer player listen to her heart.
Job title: Model
The villain from Ben Flajnik’s season asked one very important before skinny-dipping with the winemaker on national television: “I wonder if he’s ever skinny-dipped with a model before?”
Job title: Graphic designer
While we didn’t hear much about Catherine’s career during her time on Sean Lowe’s season, it clearly didn’t matter. The two have been happily married since 2014 and since welcomed two beautiful children with one on the way.
Job title: Children’s hospital event planner
The Southern belle won over Brad Womack (and America!) during Season 15, but her job title makes us love her even more.
Job title: Marketing representative
During their infamous breakup special in 2010, Vienna called out ex-fiancé Jake Pavelka for trying to become an actor. His rebuttal? “At least I was pursuing a career in something.”
Ahead of each season of The Bachelor, we anxiously await the list of contestants who will be fighting for the lead's affection. Along with the cheesy headshots come the infamous Bachelor bios which typically include a fun fact or two about the woman in question, her age and hometown, and then finally... her job title.
While we've seen quite a few business owners and sales assistants come and go from the mansion, we seem to remember the more ridiculous jobs. For instance, who can forget someone like Heather Martin from Colton Underwood's season, whose job title was literally "Never Been Kissed"? Or Alex Dillon from the same season, who was simply, "Sloth"?
The first preview pokes fun at the pilot's 'Bachelorette' windmill experience..
But here's a pro tip for you: If you're going on The Bachelor with a gimmicky job title, chances are, you're not getting that final rose. Case in point: Over the last 10 seasons of the show, we've seen two winners who are nurses, a flight attendant, and a special needs teacher. Not a sloth in sight. Hopefully Peter Weber kept this in mind when weeding through his options on his journey.
