Bachelor Biography

Joshua Albers joined Bachelor Nation in 2015 on Kaitlyn Bristowe’s season of The Bachelorette. Albers, an industrial welder from California, was sent home in week five of filming, but made a memorable impression on Bachelor Nation with several iconic moments–like when he let Bristowe give him a terrible haircut while attempting to give him a mohawk. 

When franchise star Nick Viall entered the show in the fourth week after talking to Bristowe before filming, it was Albers who confronted him and voiced his concerns on behalf of the men. He was later called out on The Men Tell All for not allowing Bristowe to make her own decisions when it came to her relationships on the show. 

Albers got a second chance at love on Bachelor in Paradise, but he ultimately left alone. 

Where is he now?

After his stint on reality TV, Albers found his true love story on Instagram in 2017, as his wife Allison Paganetti recalled in their wedding story

“After Joshua saw my photos on the internet he decided to stalk me on Instagram,” she said. “After receiving alerts for an obsessive amount of (likes) on my photos, I decided to address his picture approvals via direct messenger.” 

Paganetti, an actress/producer and former Miss Rhode Island, hopped on a flight just a few days later to be his plus one at a friend’s wedding.

“Our first physical encounter was an awkward side hug and the presentation of a white rose at the Boise Airport,” she said.

Albers’ Insta-stalking paid off as the couple got married in October 2018, with fellow Bachelor alum Shawn Booth in attendance. 

They announced in August 2019 that they were expecting their first child. The couple welcomed their son, Alden Joshua, on Jan. 25, 2020.

Albers is still friends with plenty of Bachelor Nation cast members. He took part in Ashely Iaconetti’s “Biggest Group Date Ever” in 2016, a viewing party and charity event where former male suitors were auctioned off to raise money for The Pennsylvania State Dance MaraTHON and the fight against pediatric cancer. A date with Albers was auctioned off for $700. 

Albers most recent TV appearance was when ABC re-aired Bristowe’s season on The Bachelor: The Greatest Seasons – Ever!, giving fans another look into Albers’ time on the show. 

Today, you can find Albers on Instagram sharing adorable photos of his newborn son and behind-the-scenes photos from Bachelor Nation.
