9 ‘Bachelor’ Stars From Other Countries — How Do They Stack Up? (PHOTOS)
As handsome as our bevy of Bachelor stars have been over the past 20 seasons, many of the guys fell into a specific physical category: the All-American, fair-featured hunk.
Sure, there have been moments where the producers have strayed from the muscle-y, Ken Doll types — thank you, Ben Higgins and Jason Mesnick — but aside from a failed Venezuelan lead (cough, Juan Pablo), there hasn’t been much diversity.
Luckily, that’s where the men of the international versions of The Bachelor come in. The U.S.’s version might be the best-known, but the franchise has made its way to countries like Israel, Australia, and everywhere in between.
