The Bachelor and Bachelorette Bros: Hot Former Athletes

There are five types of guys that compete on ABC's The Bachelorette: troubled heartthrobs with mysterious pasts and a love for leather, evil villains with secret girlfriends, emotionally devastated single dads, professional models, and –– our personal favorite –– jocks with pulsating pectoral muscles. These dudes love nothing more than musing on their former lives as pro or semi-pro athletes, and usually end up forcing the Bachelorette to partake in something terrifying called "sports."

But the good news is that Bachelor Nation jocks all have one thing in common: they're smokin' hot and spend an obscene amount of time shirtless (looking at you, Sean Lowe). Sound like something you can get on board with? Check out the hottest former athletes residing in Bachelor Nation!
