Bachelor 2014: Who Is Eliminated Contestant Chantel Forrest?

Will Juan Pablo Galavis ever find his wife? We’re not so sure, since he keeps sending home ladies who may have been completely perfect for him. Case and point: Chantel Forrest, who seems the most into him of any of the girls we’ve seen. So who is the one that got away from Juan (along with fellow contestants Amy Long and Victoria Lima)?

Well, with her Twitter and Instagram pages both set to private, almost zero info about the gorgeous gal is hanging around the ‘net. These days, she makes her home in San Diego, California, working as an account manager for Otis Elevator Company. The tall drink of water is 5’10” and has a rocking bod — likely thanks to her history of running super fast, starting at Florida Christian School, where she competed in the 100- and 200-meter dashes.

Though she’s making her home on the best coast these days, she does love Juan Pablo’s hometown, Miami, calling it the “most romantic” city in the United States. “I was born and raised [there] and family that is closest to me lives there,” she explains. We don’t know whether that’s romantic per se, but it is nice that she still feels a connection to her roots.

She loves cooking, Home Alone 2, and orchids, and probably cries while watching other favorite movie The Notebook — Bachelor contestants, they’re just like us! And unlike the other gals with their hat in this ring-seeking show, Chantel has her eye on the prize. When asked what she hopes to get out of this, she straight up says, “A relationship with Juan Pablo.” Because, duh.

Beyond that, she’s looking forward to the “once in a lifetime experience” (unless you’re Kacie B or Shawntel Newton, both of whom came back to other seasons), and unlike many girls, she is there to make friends. Sounds like quite the catch! Too bad Juan Pablo missed the boat on that one.
