If his application had worked the first time, Greek hottie Constantine Tzortzis would never be a Team Red Dragon twin vying to win the affections of Ben Flajnik Ashley Hebert. He might’ve been one of the guys fighting for Season 4 Bachelorette DeAnna Pappas — a nice Greek girl from Georgia! — back in 2008.

Constantine’s mom, Elleni, told Yahoo’s Associated Content that she had submitted her son's application to the show three years earlier without telling him. No one heard from producers that first time, but later “Dino’s” family and staff at the clan’s restaurant in Cumming, Georgia encouraged him to submit an application himself — and that one worked. When the show called about Season 7, his mom finally told him how she had submitted his name years ago. It’s too bad no one called the first time, since Dino and DeAnna seem to have a lot in common.

Anyway, family members can be sneaky when it comes to applications. Blake Julian’s sister, Bailey, got him cast the show and Michelle Money’s little brother, Doug, secretly submitted her application online. If you don’t want to be on the show, keep an eye on your parents and siblings!
