(John Salangsang/Invision/AP) Let’s start at the beginning: De Anna Pappas was a contestant on season 11 of “The Bachelor,” then became the fourth Bachelorette in 2008.
On tonight’s premiere of “The Bachelorette,” we’ll hear about how Jo Jo Fletcher has bounced back from being rejected by Ben Higgins, a finalist from Kaitlyn’s season, in last season’s “Bachelor” finale. But there’s another cast of characters Bachelor Nation draws from: the siblings of former contestants.
It works both ways: Family members get drafted into the franchise, and former contestants make their own sibling introductions.
This season we’ll no doubt hear more tough questions from protective older brother, who might be auditioning for a future season of “The Bachelor” or “Paradise.” In the meantime, here are a few other families that have had more than one sibling look for love — or find it — through Bachelor Nation.
