I Need To Discuss These Bizarre Bachelor Nation Couples That Aren’t Even Technically Bachelor Nation Couples

We all know how incestuous the dating pool is in Bachelor Nation — after all, Bachelor in Paradise is a whole show dedicated to people dating their friends’ exes. But there are two couples with ties to the show that take the weirdness to the next level, and the really strange part is that, of the four people I’m talking about, not a single one of them was actually cast by ABC producers. And so I ask you, friends, did you know about Hannah Brown's brother and Jed Wyatt's sister? What about Amanda Stanton's ex and Josh Murray's ex?

Meet the Players

If you’re wondering which four people I’m talking about, I’m referring to Patrick Brown, Haley Stevens, Bobby Jacobs, and Anna Von Staehle. If you just watch the show and don’t follow any of the reality stars online, you might not recognize a single one of those names, and that’s because only Patrick has ever even been on the Bachelor franchise. As Hannah Brown’s baby brother, he made an appearance during her season of the show when he met her final two men, Jed Wyatt and Tyler Cameron, as they were introduced to her family. But if you were super invested in that season of the show, then Haley Stevens’ name might sound familiar, too.

Need a quick refresher? Haley was Jed’s ex — you know, the one he left behind to wait for him as he went to kickstart his music career on the dating show. He allegedly told her he would call her when the competition ended and that their relationship would be “stronger on the other side because of it,” but when he finished the show engaged, he ghosted her. That led to her sharing her story with outlets like People, and the drama grew to the point that Hannah and Jed ended up talking it out on camera (and later breaking up) during a segment aired on After the Final Rose.
