9. J.P. Rosenbaum

J.P. Rosenbaum competed on Ashley Hebert’s season of The Bachelorette and the two got married and had a family. While they recently separated, they still had many years together warming the hearts of Bachelor Nation everywhere.

Cameron is also good friends with current bachelor Matt James, and he’s even appeared on the show to offer James advice.

7. Peter Kraus

Peter Kraus appeared on Rachel Lindsey’s season and the two became very close. He is charming, handsome, and sweet and Rachel clearly loved him. Peter was Rachel’s first one-on-one date and the two bonded over their tooth-gaps. How cute!

Unfortunately, as the season progressed things did not work out. Peter did not want to propose so his time on the show ended in one of Bachelorette history’s most emotional breakups.

6. Wells Adams

Benn Higgins is one of the most loved Bachelorette contestants of all time. He competed on Kaitlyn Bristowe’s season but did not receive her final rose. Throughout the season, Ben’s sweet nature made him a fan-favorite and so he went on to become The Bachelor!

On his season he broke the unspoken rule of not saying, “I love you” when he told both JoJo and Lauren that he loves them. Ultimately, Ben and Lauren got engaged during the finale but later split.

4. Mike Johnson

Mike Johnson is another fan-favorite from Hannah Brown’s season of The Bachelorette. Mike is handsome, charming, sweet, and funny. He also has one of the best smiles in Bachelor Nation!

Mike is so popular he also returned for a season of Bachelor in Paradise. Fans have also been wanting to see Mike Johnson star as The Bachelor in a future season!

3. Zac Clark

Zac Clark began as a contestant on Clare Crawley’s season of The Bachelorette. When Clare left the show with then fiance Dale Moss, the remaining men chose to either leave or take a chance on love with the incoming bachelorette.

Thankfully, Zac stayed and formed a strong bond with the new bachelorette Tayshia Adams. The two share undeniable chemistry and managed to fall in love and have fun all while filming during a pandemic. Maybe Zac couldn’t really take Tayshia to New York City, but their makeshift New York date was still adorable!

Zac is genuine, loving, and compassionate and this latest season of The Bachelorette made fans believe in love again!

2. Sean Lowe
