Why most contestants don't make it onto The Bachelor

"As soon as the medical tests came back, you'd see that herpes was the biggest thing", said Ben Hatta, [creator and executive producer] Mike Fleiss's old assistant.

Speaking to Amy Kaufman, whose new book Bachelor Nation: Inside the World of America's Favorite Guilty Pleasure ill take fans behind the scenes of the long-running reality show, Hatta also revealed just how awkward it can be when he had to break the news to the show hopefuls, admitting that they would just tell hopefuls that they needed to call the doctor. More than 1 in 6 Americans ages 14 to 49 have genital herpes, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, making its status as the chief disqualifier on a mainstream reality show rather less surprising. You'd be like, 'Uh, you should call your doctor.' Why?

"Then they'd realize they'd been denied from The Bachelor and now a bunch of people knew they had herpes", he added.

Contestants go through several rounds of intense scrutiny to be on the show, including a 150-question personality test, private interviews, sessions with a therapist, and a panel interview in front of two dozen producers.

Donning an army-green coat, the 46-year-old actor was photographed with a bike and wearing a backpack on his back. While the star opted to skip the red carpet, she made sure to show up in support of longtime buddy Bateman.


It seems a reasonable, if slightly mean-spirited, standard for the series.

But Kaufman reveals other application details that are slightly more damning.

Since any applicant with an STD is sent home, producers see the bulk of potential suitors get sent home after a run-of-the-mill physical.

"There's psychological tests they have to pass, but there's a window of the pass, do you know what I mean?" insinuated Michael Carroll, the producer who got so close to contestants that he even crashed in their rooms occasionally. "Like, she passed, but just barely".

The cocaine was stored beneath the beds of the travellers. "You don't need two chickens to keep warm a golden egg", she said. A suitcase filled with cocaine after it was seized by customs onboard the MS Sea Princess in Sydney , Australia.


Former Bachelor villain Rozlyn Papa says that's what happened to her when she was on the show in 2010 (with Bachelor Jake Pavelka).

"It was nearly like, 'OK, perfect". But if that sounds like a show you one day want to be a part of just make sure you're completely and utterly STD free. "You're going to say some really screwed-up stuff.' Looking at it, I can see why I should not have been a candidate".

Tearful breakdowns undoubtedly make for good TV-but at what cost?
