40 Behind The Scenes Facts About The Bachelor
A Lot Of Potential Contestants Get Cut Because Of Herpes
In order to be cast on The Bachelor or The Bachelorette, you have to go through an intense screening process that includes medical testing. Mike Fleiss‘s former assistant Ben Hatta told Amy that the biggest reason contestants who made it to the medical test were cut was because they had herpes. According to Ben, the Bachelor production team would sometimes be the first people to reveal to the potential contestant that they had an STD. Not making it onto the show and having herpes is definitely adding insult to injury.
