Amanda Arntson is no stranger to being in the spotlight, and she’s about to be thrust back into it on Juan Pablo Galavis’ Season 18 of The Bachelor.  

The Los Angeles resident is in her mid-20s (maybe 25? Sure, that sounds right), as she graduated from the University of Arizona with a Bachelors of Science in Journalism. Since then, she’s been living in Los Angeles and working some pretty high profile places. Why the thing about the spotlight? Oh, just because she tends to date guys we’ve heard of.

According to Reality Steve and TheDirty.com, Amanda has some fairly high-profile exes. Among them, Ryan Cabrera and music producer Fernando Garibay. Yep, she and Ashlee Simpson dated the same guy, so there are some pieces of her that give us a lot to think about.

As for who Fernando is, well he produced a few little folks you may have heard of — Including Ellie Goulding (“Lights”), Lady Gaga (“Edge of Glory,” “Marry the Night,” “Born This Way,” “Paparazzi,” “Dance in the Dark”), and Britney Spears (“Amnesia,” “Quicksand”). Oh, and Paris Hilton too. According to TheDirty, Fernando cheated on Amanda throughout the years they were together. Let’s hope she’s gotten over that by now, since there’s no room for baggage on the JPG train.

As far as how she met these big music players? Well, that’s probably through her work, since Amanda is Executive Assistant to the CEO at XIX Entertainment, and worked previously at Interscope Records. On her LinkedIn profile, she describes herself as discrete, organized, and efficient. Let’s hope her non-professional view of herself is a little crazier.

If the blonde contestant is as fun as she is gorgeous, we have no doubt she’ll be able to stick around for long enough for JPG — and us — to get to know her.
