Bachelor contestants no one remembers now engaged

The Bachelor has actually formed another relationship, but not one between its star and winner. Instead, it’s between two people voted off the show on the first episodes of their respective seasons. If you recognize them, you should seek help fast.

The Bachelor 9‘s Tara Durr, dumped by Prince Lorenzo Borghese based on first impressions only, and The Bachelorette 5‘s John Presser, who was similarly dumped by Jillian Harris, are now engaged.

People reports that they “announced their engagement this past weekend at the fourth reunion of Bachelor/Bachelorette alumni hosted by Jesse Csincsak in Breckenridge, Colo,” and “first connected through a private Bachelor Facebook page last year when Presser asked Durr to ‘friend’ him in July, and Durr was the first to write.”

Like many Bachelor contestants, they’re annoying and make little sense; John tells the magazine that Tara “saved herself for marriage, and for a girl like her, extremely attractive, to save herself for marriage … I wasn’t sure what I was getting myself into, but it’s impossible to explain. She loves to dance, she loves to have fun, she’s social, we are great friends together, she doesn’t drink alcohol, doesn’t need it to have fun, she’s just this perfect package.”

Review: Married at First Sight

Marriage At First Sight

Beyond the headline-grabbing premise, the series has turned out to be a stripped-down, authentic exploration of something very interesting. Read the full review.
