Bachelorette Season 8’s Chris Bukowski: Where Is He Now?
Chris Bukowski wormed his way into our Bachelor fan-fiction when he first showed up on Emily Maynard's season of The Bachelorette. Sure, she tossed him aside like an old weave, but then Mr. Bukow-chicka-wow-ski came back for seconds as a frontrunner in Bachelor Pad 3 (RIP, old friend) and slayed us with his sexiness. Basically, Chris was made to be on reality television, but his life post Bachelor fame isn't anything to complain about!
Not only has this Chicago native permanently shacked up in Arlington, Virginia, he's opened his very own sports bar/eatery called The Bracket Room where ladies and gents can unite over their love for football and simultaneously binge-eat something called a "Philly Cheese Steak Egg Roll." So, The Bracket Room is essentially heaven on earth.
Of course, when Chris isn't busy trolling around his restaurant, he can be found trolling around the streets of Arlington with his new gal pal, a fluffy dog named Miley (yes, she was named after America's resident twerking queen, sigh). Miley is the only piece of tail on Chris' leash at the moment (sorry, we had to), but we don't imagine he'll be single for much longer. Have you seen his face? This Polish party-starter is like a walking Greek god.
There's no doubt that 2013 was a great year for Chris, but his world was rocked by the passing of The Bachelor's Gia Allemand, with whom Chris was rather close. Chris chose to honor his friend by hosting a birthday party at The Bracket Room with proceeds going to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. What a guy!
Naturally, The Bracket Room is a major hotspot for all things Bachelor-related, and many alums have shown up to show their support — including Chris' co-star, Tony Pieper! We're thrilled that Chris's life post-Bachelorette is such a success, but we can't really talk about it anymore because we're too busy pondering the mythical creature that is the Philly Cheese Steak Egg Roll.
