16. Patty, 70
Hometown: Durham, North Carolina
Occupation: Retired real estate saleswoman
Patty should be pretty recognizable to all of us fans of Bachelor Nation–she is Matt James’ (Season 25 Bachelor) mother, and she is ready to find love and make a name for herself! After she saw how this could work for her son, she thought, why not try it out for herself? Much like Jess Girod from Zach’s season, she loves body glitter and expressing herself through her fashion!
17. Peggy, 69
Hometown: East Haven, Connecticut
Occupation: Dental hygienist
Peggy has always lived her life putting others’ needs way before her own. She’s even volunteered to serve and teach developing nations worldwide about the importance of dental health. She loves spending time with her super cute Bichon Frise named Libby and hopes to return home with Gerry (and Libby, too) right by her side!
18. Renee, 67
Hometown: Chicago, Illinois
Occupation: Former Chicago Honey Bear
Renee is way more than just a former NFL cheerleader! She’s also written two books and has even co-written another book! She loves planting flowers and spending time with her children and grandchildren. She also really wants to meet Harry Styles. Because of that, she’s officially my favorite franchise contestant ever…same, girl…same!
