Bachelor Biography

Katrina Badowski joined Bachelor Nation in 2020 as a contestant on Peter Weber’s season of The Bachelor. Badowski, a former pro NFL and NBA dancer from Chicago, was sent home the first week of the show.

Despite only making it through one night on Weber’s season, Badowski formed strong relationships with other members of Bachelor Nation.

“Sitting court side with my All Star,” she captioned a pic with fellow castmate Kelley Flanagan.

Badowski also had a brief relationship with Bachelor franchise star Chris Bukowski. They were spotted out together on Valentine’s Day and attended fellow Bachelor alum JJ Lane’s wedding the following month.

“The Owskis ✨,” she captioned their first Instagram-official pic, referencing their similar last names. “Congrats @kayhughes9 and @jjhlaneon your beautiful new life together!”

Where is she now?

Badowski found love outside of Bachelor Nation, recently breaking the news about her new boyfriend Robert Freeman, a mortgage banker from Florida.

“I found love on a beach this summer, but not in Paradise,” she told Us Weekly. “Robert and I first met two years ago when we were in the same bridal party at a wedding. We crossed paths again in Florida this summer through mutual friends and have been going out ever since.”

Though the couple lives in separate cities, they’ve found time in quarantine to visit each other.

“We have been visiting each other a lot and also have trips planned to meet in other cities for some getaway weekends,” Badowski said. “During quarantine, we have been able to spend two to three weekends a month together by flying to each other.”

Badowski is currently competing in the Sports Illustrated Swim Search 2021. You can find her sharing fitness inspiration and pics of her travels from Illinois to Florida and more on her Instagram.
