Being the Bachelorette comes with a huge amount of pressure—to be charming, smart and, above all, attractive. Even the natural beauties who are chosen for reality TV’s most ruthless dating show sometimes turn to modern medicine for a little help getting—and staying—gorgeous. “They pick them because they’re beautiful, but everyone gets a little tweak,” says a source on the set. “Twenty-five guys are competing for your love—if you don’t look tip-top, you’ll be ridiculed.”
Season 5 star Jillian Harris has endured that criticism and admits that it drove her to action. “It hurts when somebody makes jabs about your appearance,” says Jillian, who says she felt bullied into getting a nose job after reading harsh comments about her appearance online. “I remember literally sobbing and feeling so awful that somebody would say those things.”
So who’s had work done? Sources spill on the possible conclusions.
Season 10’s Andi was so self-conscious about her nose in high school, she had it fixed—and when she didn’t like the results, she did it again! Another source claims Andi has also had a boob job and Botox injections.
Doc Says: “I think Andi has had a rhinoplasty,” says Miami plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Salzhauer. “The tip and nasal bridge are narrower, but it’s a good result, very natural.”
A season 8 on-set source says Emily’s had so much work, she’s “like a ’57 Chevy that’s been rebuilt from the ground up,” and implies that producers paid for it.
Doc Says: New York cosmetic dermatologist Dr. Kenneth Mark says Emily has used “the Botox brow-lift” and may have had a nose job, while her jaw suggests Ultherapy, a nonsurgical face-lift.
In 2011, reports surfaced suggesting that Season 7 Bachelorette Ashley had a nose job. If so, it worked! She married J.P. Rosenbaum, whom she met on the show, and she’s currently five months pregnant!
Doc Says: Dr. Salzhauer agrees that Ashley’s rhinoplasty is “more than likely” and adds that her super-smooth forehead is “no doubt” the result of Botox.
Jillian says she had her nose done about four years ago and admits that she’s also tried Botox. And she’s not done yet! The Season 5 star says she’ll get a boob job after she has kids. “If you can afford it and it’s your choice, it’s no one else’s business,” Jillian says. “As long as you don’t turn into a complete narcissist, more power to you.”
The first Bachelorette, who’s now on WE tv’s Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars, admits she had a body makeover after her second child in 2009. Trista says she had a breast augmentation to combat the effects of breast-feeding, and while she was at it, she had a procedure to correct a droopy eyelid. Trista says her new breasts are “a little large for me, but my husband, Ryan, is incredibly happy!”
