For the first time in ten plus years, my Monday nights are not revolving around The Bachelor franchise. This is the first season I remember where I have zero investment. I am still watching the episodes, but sometimes not until a week after it airs. I am not keeping up with Reality Steve, all his spoilers, and the play by play of what is happening off air. Maybe I am finally growing out of it, or maybe I am just bored with Colton...likely a mixture of the two. However, I still enjoy catching up with past contestants and sharing their whereabouts on my blog.

While making an early name for himself on Becca's season of The Bachelorette when he threw Lincoln's wedding picture off the balcony, he seamlessly faded into the background afterwards, flying under the radar with the rest of the season's drama. Connor Obrochta, not only made it halfway through Becca's season with major Clark Kent vibes on your television screens, but he was also a contestant on Bachelor in Paradise this past summer.

Prior to becoming part of Bachelor Nation, Connor was a baseball player in the Braves organization and a personal trainer in St. Petersburg, Florida. He was focused on growing his business, opening a gym, and potentially getting into TV hosting before he ended up on the show.

However, since returning home from Paradise, Connor has jumped right back into his fitness business, adding on charity work to his resume. He has helped Colton Underwood, this season's Bachelor in case you're living under a rock, with the Colton Underwood Legacy Foundation, as the lead instructor for bootcamps. Connor has also been doing hosting and fitness modeling, while using his platform to be a role model to others to have a positive outlook on life.

The show helped Connor learn a lot about himself, grow as an individual, and take on each day with positivity and faith at the forefront. While he loved being on both shows, his favorite experience was Bachelor in Paradise. His only regret with Paradise is not being able the be there long enough, which gives him (and all of us fans at home!) the hope that he will return to our tv screens this summer!
