With ABC’s Golden Bachelor underway, fans are dying to know more about the contestants of this reality series, especially since they have very intriguing lives outside of the show. One of these contestants is none other than Joan Vassos, a contestant that you may have seen once or twice in the background and a couple of times front and center.
Upon meeting her, you may have learned that she’s got quite a tight grip. But trust us when we say this isn’t the only thing that may pique your interest about her.
Without further ado, here’s what to know about Joan Vassos!
One thing that we adore most about Joan is that she is a hard worker. According to her biography page, she is most proud of kick-starting a brand new career. What exactly is this career? Read on to find out her current occupation and more!

Another fun fact about Joan is that, like all of us, she is a huge foodie! She loves a good burger as well as a nice, cold glass of wine, but not more than she loves cooking a meal from scratch. Her children have had the fortune of tasting her plates and savoring every bite. We were hoping that Gerry Turner would have the same fortune if he were to choose Joan to be the new love of his life! But we have sad news to share about Joan’s chance of ending up with Gerry…
Joan leaves The Golden Bachelor in Week 3
UPDATE Oct. 12, 2023: The third episode of the season, unfortunately, saw Joan self-eliminating and going home. But don’t worry, she didn’t get into a fight with Gerry or anything like that. It was the opposite situation for her and the show’s lead. The new episode saw Joan winning the group date one-on-one and rose after she told a hilarious poem during the talent show. She and Gerry shared a great night but the morning after, she found out she needed to leave.
After getting a phone call from her daughter, she had to leave the show immediately due to a family emergency. She was very upset to have to leave but told the other contestants and Gerry that she needed to go be a mom.
Joan Vassos was one person we were definitely rooting for, especially since she seems like a bubbly person who has a lot to offer. We’re sending love and well wishes to her and her family in this difficult time.
