When celebrities come into Bustle HQ in New York, whether it's for a photoshoot, videoshoot, or a Facebook Live, we want to give them the chance to leave their mark. Literally. So we hand them a pen, a piece of paper, a few questions, and ask them to get creative. The rest is up to them. This time, Bachelorette and Bachelor in Paradise star Jared Haibon is leaving his mark in the Bustle Booth.
It's not always easy to pinpoint when a reality star becomes a fan-favorite, but Haibon was an exception during his time on Kaitlyn Bristowe's season of The Bachelorette. He was always the nice guy who also had a great sense of humor, but America didn't specifically fall in love with him until he suffered a concussion during a group date and persevered to see Kaitlyn later that night anyway. He was there to find love and not even a head injury was going to stop him from getting to know his potential future wife.
Things ultimately didn't work out for him on that show — nor did he find a lifelong partner after competing on two seasons of Bachelor in Paradise — but he never got down about the show's process, and he still watches the Bachelor franchises today. Currently, he's supporting his friend, fellow Bachelorette and Bachelor in Paradise veteran Nick Viall, as he seeks his own happily ever after. As for his post-show life, Jared seems content to hang with his Bachelor pals (he and Ashley I. are still thick as thieves); play with his dog, Clark; and just enjoy life. He's also still down to show off his sense of humor, like he did in a Facebook Live video, and get a little vulnerable, like he did in the Bustle Booth, where he revealed his biggest fear, how he wants to be remembered, and more.
