9 'Bachelor' Alums Who Became Even More Famous After the Show (PHOTOS)

Let's face it -- even though everyone says they're going on The Bachelor or The Bachelorette for love, they don't always mean it. The truth of the matter is that going on a reality show like this one has a way of being a great jumping-off point for a career in entertainment. And even though some of these contestants did go on the show "for the right reasons," they still managed to leave with a career.


It's easy to understand how it happens. We -- the fans, of course -- watch the show, and then we want to see more of certain contestants who really pop. That turns into those contestants being in high demand, and boom. They're all over our TVs again! 

So who's done the best job of claiming fame post-Bachelor? These nine stars know a thing or two about making the spotlight last.
