Greek Bachelors and Greek Bachelorettes

26 Aug
















Sarah, one of the women in my nonfiction writing workshop, got me hooked on The Bachelorette.  ‘Cause you know, those of us in the number-one-ranked nonfiction MFA program in New York like to watch some quality television when we’re not writing our memoirs.  Maybe reality tv is the new biography and vlogging is the new memoir?

Anyway, I just heard that the runner up, Ben Flajnik, who’s been spotted with Jennifer Love Hewitt, will be the next Bachelor.

One of the interesting things I’ve noticed about The Bachelor and The Bachelorette series is that there have been quite a few Greek Americans:::

  • DeAnna Pappas, a real-estate agent from Marietta, Georgia (The Bachelor, season 11; The Bachelorette, season 4)
  • Eric Papachristos, a senior analyst from Greece (The Bachelorette, season 4)
  • Spero Stamboulis, an actor from Ellington, Connecticut (The Bachelorette, season 4)
  • Jessie Sulidis, a cosmetic sales manager from Oakville, Ontario (The Bachelor, season 14)
  • Constantine Tzortzis, a restaurant owner from Atlanta (The Bachelorette, season 7)

Am I missing anyone?

    Spero is no longer a bachelor and it would be greatly appreciated if you remove him from your page. Thanks so much. =) he is a serious actor and producer and this show needs to disappear!

      Thank you for your comment, KT! This post reflects past Greek American participants on The Bachelor and The Bachelorette shows and is not indicative of their current relationship status as some of them are now happily married. I’d love to do a post on Spero’s current acting and producing! If you have any information on this, please do pass it along.

    Mark Philipoussis was a bachelor contestant as well.
