Former Bachelor and Bachelorette contestants aren’t necessarily the best dancers on Dancing With the Stars, but they are extremely entertaining and make the show fun to watch. Not to mention, they always have a strong fanbase thanks to Bachelor Nation.
Here are the top five contestants from The Bachelor who ever competed on DWTS. While they may not have had the best scores, these five showed a lot of improvement and growth during their time on the show.
Rycroft, who was on Jason Mesnick’s season of The Bachelor, appeared on Dancing With the Stars two different times! She first competed during Season 8 with partner Tony Dovolani and finished in third, but she returned for the All-Star Season with Dovolani and got first place. There’s no doubt she’s the best Bachelor contestant!
Viall wasn’t exactly the best dancer when he competed on Season 24 with partner Peta Murgatroyd, but he did show a lot of growth. In fact, he was probably one of the most improved dancers from the beginning to when he eventually got eliminated.
Despite Lowe’s lack of natural dancing ability, he does get an A for effort. He, of course, has an award-winning personality which really shined through during his dances. Though he didn’t end up winning (he finished in sixth place), we loved watching him.
Sutter shockingly got eliminated in the second week of competition when she appeared on DWTS way back in Season 1. Though she was eliminated very early in the competition, we think she would’ve actually done a good job had she gotten a chance to practice a few more weeks.
Soules, who was partnered with Witney Carson for Season 19, wasn’t the best dancer either, but he did make it far in the competition! In fact, he finished in fifth place, which was really good considering his season had a lot of talented contestants.
