Jillian Anderson joined The Bachelor cast in 2015 as a contestant on Chris Soules’ season. Anderson, a news producer and former Washington Redskins’ cheerleader, made it to week four of the show.  

In a blog for People after the show aired, Soules wrote that he “just wasn’t feeling it” after their date and sent her home. 

Anderson cemented herself in Bachelor history with several memorable moments during Soules’ season, including an accidental fall during one of the rose ceremonies and the infamous black box that was used to censor her several times when she was in a bikini on the show. 

The news producer earned herself a spot in Bachelor in Paradise for its second season. She was sent home during the first ceremony.

Anderson recently posted a throwback to her time in Paradise after the clip of her tripping on Soules’ season made the rounds on TikTok, garnering millions of views. 

“Apparently I’m famous on Tik Tok (I don’t even have one of those.) And at the same time ABC is re-airing old seasons of The Bachelor,” she wrote on Instagram. “I’m being sent so many cringe worthy (meaty) clips of myself. Here’s one more!”

While The Bachelor franchise didn’t pair Anderson with her perfect match, she got engaged four years after she first appeared on the show. Anderson and her fiance, Mike King, announced their engagement in June 2019. 

“I am so grateful & God is so good to give me you,” she shared on Instagram.

In April 2020, she announced they are postponing their wedding due to Covid-19. 

Anderson can be found in Washington, D.C. working as a media booking manager.
