Bachelor Biography

Amy Anzel is a founding member of Bachelor Nation as she competed on the first ever season of the franchise. Anzel was one of 25 women chosen to date the first ever The Bachelor lead, Alex Michel, when the show premiered in 2002.

Anzel, an actress and a production coordinator from New York City, was sent home in the second week of the show. 

While the show was airing, Anzel did an interview with Newsweek where she described what the casting process was like for the first ever season of the franchise.

“I saw an ad in ‘Us Weekly’ magazine saying, ‘Do you want to meet the most desirable bachelor in America?,’” she explained. “I downloaded the application and faxed it in and the next day they called and asked me to send in a videotape. Then they flew me back and forth from New York to Los Angeles for interviews and blood testing, urine testing and psychiatric testing.”

Despite the show being a new concept at the time, Anzel said it wasn’t weird to compete with other women for Michel. 

“I felt like this was a microcosm of the real world,” she said. “Usually, you know the guy is dating other women but you just don’t see what they look like.”

Where is she now?
