“The Bachelorette” 2013 contestants have already been chosen and will probably begin filming with Desiree Hartsock this coming weekend. Reality Steve wrote in his blog that the show was to begin taping March 17, but since the whole cast is already in L.A., there’s no reason for ABC to sit around and wait.
Who will be part of the new cast? Steve shares that he’s still working on gathering information on the rumored contestants he was told about, however, he did release the names of 6 contestants that are thought to be either alternates or part of the televised cast. Steve said the producers often have more than 25 “Bachelor” or “Bachelorette” contestants in case someone gets cold feet or an emergency comes up.
With all that said, fans want to at least know who’s on tap for being on “The Bachelorette” 2013. Steve added that as of now, the men listed here still have their Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn accounts active, with the exception of Zak Waddell and Dr. Larry Burchett.
Brooks Forester is 28 or 29 who is from Boise, ID, but lives in Salt Lake City, Utah. He’s from a large family — 1 of 10 children. Brooks works as a Sales rep at Fit Marketing. His B.A. is from the University of Utah.
David Insogna is a 30-year-old from Philadelphia, Penn. and graduated Temple University. He’s currently in medical sales.
Ben Scott is 28 from Dallas, Texas. He graduated Lubbock High School in 2003 and Texas Tech University in 2007. He works at The Trophy Room in Uptown and has a 4-year-old son named Brody. Reality Steve thought “The Bachelorette” contestant was married to his son’s mother, but he wasn’t. He actually went as “The Bachelor” to a Halloween party last year. Crazy.
Chris Siegfried is 27 and from Seattle, Washington. He works for HomeStreet Bank Mortgage Lending and is a part-time model. He was a minor league pitcher in the Chicago Cubs organization from 2007-2011.
Zak Waddell is 31 or 32 and from San Antonio, Texas. He’s a drilling engineer for AIP Inc.. His B.A. is from Texas A&M and his Masters is from the University of Dallas.
Dr. Larry Burchett is a 34-year-old from Berkeley, Calif. and graduated from the University of Notre Dame in 2001 — and medical school at the University of Kansas in 2006. He works at Emergency Physician at Sonoma Valley Hospital.
All-in-all it looks like a nice handful of contestants for “The Bachelorette” 2013 so far.
Watching Desiree Hartsock find love this season will be a joy for fans. She has a lot of qualities viewers really want in a lead for the show — smart, funny, relatable, and beautiful. She’s well-rounded in a lot of respects that will only enhance her chances at finding love this coming season!
