If you鈥檙e anything like me, you look forward to Monday nights 鈥斅爓ine glass overflowing (wait, what?),聽cheese plate carefully crafted 鈥 it鈥檚 time for The Bachelor.聽Most likely, if you鈥檙e a dedicated fan of聽the聽franchise like I am, you have a few bachelor/ettes that were your fave and least fave to watch. Bachelor contestants聽have their minute in the spotlight and then fade away once the show finishes airing. That said, some go on to have seriously legit careers 鈥 like Ali Fedotowsky!

She doesn鈥檛 know this, but I was actually her personal cheerleader during her time on The Bachelor (JAKE, YOU ARE A FOOL). When she became The Bachelorette the following season, I was thrilled for her, because she was truly a likable person. Imagine how excited I was to find out that Ali is going to co-host Re:Make 2016 (which is *one* week from today!).

4. D-bags Imploding:聽You can count on this show for its fair share of聽total d-bags, like Bachelor in Paradise鈥檚 Chad (did he have any fans?!), to implode and show their true colors. Beware of these, ladies!
