Who Is Bachelor in Paradise Contestant Michelle Kujawa?

There are so many Bachelor in Paradise contestants who are so relevant, they basically just hopped a plane from last season of The Bachelorette and The Bachelor, and headed straight to Mexico. And then there's Michelle Kujawa, who we haven't seen on the small screen in four years. The Season 14 Bachelor and Season 1 Bachelor Pad alum has had a rocky history with the rose-colored show, and she's ready for another shot at finding happiness among its petals. Or, at least, she thought she was...

If you, like us, need a little refresher course on some of the cast, we've got you covered.


Hometown: Anaheim, California

First appeared: Jake Pavelka's Season 14 of The Bachelor

Other appearances: Bachelor Pad Season 1, for like five seconds. She was on the first episode and then she disappeared.

Occupation: Um, sales? Office manager?

Show dating history: (crickets)

Most memorable moment: Either she was really uncomfortable to be on reality TV, or she really hates kissing... or Jake Pavelka. Whatever the reason, Michelle confronted Jake about wanting to leave, begged him to kiss her, had the most awkward kiss ever, and then got sent home a wee bit later. It was... rough.

Likelihood of finding love in Paradise: Look, we don't know how to say this. We don't really think of her. So, we have no idea.

Spoilers: There's just one, but it is soooooooo good.
