The Bachelor 2014’s Stand-Out Competitors: Where are they now?



It’s still early days for a “where are they now” piece. But I’ve learned so much by researching these fascinating women. One thing I would like to say is kudos to “The Bachelor” producers for choosing women who were not only beautiful, but who also are intelligent, talented and well spoken.

This blog is to celebrate the stand out women of “The Bachelor 2014”. Because of this and because we already know way more than we want to about the bachelor himself, he will NOT be mentioned here at all.

As I studied these women, I realized that, “wow” these women are all women of substance. It’s such a shame they were contestants on this season of the show. As it was such a train wreck, maybe they will be invited back on another season? Well, one can hope.

These are in no particular order. I did as much research as I could about the following ladies, though, I’m sure we will learn more in the days to come. So what are the “stand out” contestants doing now that the Bachelor has officially wrapped (besides breathing a collective sigh of relief, that is.)

Renee’ Orteri


The biggest news to come out so far is from Renee. She is officially engaged! There are pics online of her husband-to-be but not much is known about this mystery man. In any case, congratulations Renee’!

Clare Crawley:


The runner-up, many people are saying Clare “dodged the bullet”. I absolutely disagree. Unfortunately, the entire country knows she had sex with JP at least once (the ocean) and possibly twice (his hotel suite). That said, “She’s totally over him,” the source close to the 32-year-old Sacramento hairstylist said. “She is done with him and relieved that they are not together.” The moral here ladies, don’t give it away too soon. And then expect respect. It doesn’t work that way.

Kat Hurd


I watched a 30 minute interview with this Arizona beauty. Something “The Bachelor” neglected to show about Kat is that she is very intelligent, thoughtful and is a born leader. She’s currently working with some of the other contestants to organize various fund-raisers. Kat has used this season of “The Bachelor” to raise more than $10,000 for breast cancer and leukemia research. Kat was also President of her sorority during college. That’s a big job. She hopes to continue, with several other contestants, as a philanthropist. Kat says she has dated some, but is still single.

Cassie Ferguson


Cassandra Ferguson The 5’10” 22 year old, former Detroit Pistons dancer has a 2-year-old son. The father of her baby is Rodney Stuckey. Rodney is a basketball player for the Detroit Pistons. Cassandra is an “old soul”. She had to grow up fast to take on her role as a mother. She’s going to be juuust fine.

Sharleen Joynt


Sharleen is not only beautiful, she is intelligent, worldly and is a very talented opera singer. Since her departure from the show, she traveled to Canada to do a fundraiser. In April 2014, Sharleen will be performing with The Metropolitan Opera during several April performances in New York. Get your tickets now!.

Andi Dorfman


Everyone saw this coming and I am so happy you all were correct! Andi has, (at least for now) left her profession to become “The Bachelorette”! If you watched this season of the bachelor, you saw that she would be perfect in this role. She is drop dead gorgeous (no career pun intended), very intelligent and super excited to find love. With the show beginning to air in May, filming will begin almost immediately. Congrats Andi!

Nikki Ferrell


As you all are aware, Nikki is the “winner” of The Bachelor. What she actually won is still unclear, other than a final rose. No ring, no promises, no proclamations of love. Nikki is an intelligent beauty who is still waiting to hear those 3 little words, “I love you”.  I honestly hope she has an ulterior motive. The longer she stays, the more ammo she has for a “Tell All” book? One can hope…for her sake.
