Zach Shallcross’ season of The Bachelor has finally arrived and we’re now onto the second episode! Last week, we got to meet the 30 ladies competing for a shot at love, and a whopping 10 were sent home in the first-ever rose ceremony of the exciting season. Now, tonight, we’ll get group dates and the very coveted first one-on-one date, which will be no doubt very entertaining to watch. Will Zach fall for the first woman he takes out, or will there be no sparks flying? We’ll find out soon enough!
Another big part of tonight’s episode of The Bachelor season 27 is the special appearances! Of course, if you’re a fan of this franchise you’ll know that the ABC dating show frequently brings back past contestants to make fun cameos. Most of the time, they’re there to present competitions for dates or announce something special. And that’s not an exception with tonight’s episode, which will see the return of three former Bachelor stars!
On top of rapper Latto, who appears tonight during one of the group dates, the three ladies we’ve seen on the ABC franchise before are Tahzjuan Hawkins, Victoria Fuller, and Courtney Robertson. If you’ve seen their faces but can’t quite remember what seasons they were on or just have never heard of them before, here’s everything to know about them!
What season of The Bachelor was Tahzjuan Hawkins on?
30-year-old Tahzjuan originally came onto The Bachelor scene on Colton Underwood’s season (season 23). Though she was eliminated in week 1, she returned to the franchise in Bachelor in Paradise season 6, and then again the next time around in Bachelor in Paradise season 7. Though Tahzjuan didn’t find love on reality TV, she’s always a fun part of the show.
What season of The Bachelor was Victoria Fuller on?
Those who keep up with Bachelor Nation gossip might know Victoria Fuller, 29, who competed on Peter Weber’s season of The Bachelor (season 24). Though she made it pretty far in the season, she was ultimately eliminated by week 9. After that, Victoria appeared on Bachelor in Paradise season 8 and got engaged at the end to Johnny DePhillipo. However, their relationship has since ended and Victoria is now dating former Bachelorette contestant Greg Grippo.
What season of The Bachelor was Courtney Robertson on?
Courtney Robertson made her Bachelor debut on Ben Flajnik’s season (season 16). The 39-year-old actually won the season and ended up getting engaged to Ben. However, the pair called off their engagement before taking the next big step and weren’t on good terms for a little while. Courtney released a tell-all book called I Didn’t Come Here to Make Friends: Confessions of a Reality Show Villain in 2014, which really ruffled some feathers.
In a 2021 interview, though, Ben revealed he and Courtney have since made amends.
The Bachelor season 27 premieres new episodes every Monday night on ABC.
