Ashley Iaconetti of ‘The Bachelor’ Dishes on What Dating Is Like Post-Reality TV

She made a name for herself as the “virgin Kardashian” who shed a lot of tears during Chris Soules’ season of The Bachelor, but Ashley I. — as she’s known to fans — has done so much more since first stepping out the limo.

Now with a season of The Bachelor and two seasons of Bachelor in Paradise under her belt, Ashley is moving on from reality television and ready to find a boyfriend without America watching.

But do the guys she goes out with care that she’s a TV celebrity?

“I think for girls, it doesn’t really change that much because single guys don’t watch the show,” she explains on the Candy Dish podcast. “Married guys and guys with girlfriends watch the show, so it doesn’t really affect the girls’ life dating post-show.”

So when it comes to telling guys she was on The Bachelor, she says, “I don’t think they really care.”

Ashley also talks about what life was like on both The Bachelor and Bachelor in Paradise, what she thinks of Nick Viall’s new fiance Vanessa, and about her new podcast, which includes lots of guests from Bachelor Nation.
