Have you been a Bachelor and Bachelorette fan since the beginning? If so, you might remember me, Jen Schefft, one of the show’s original stars. I “won” the proposal from The Bachelor Andrew Firestone on season 3 of the infamous ABC television series, that relationship ultimately ended, but I was given another chance at finding love as The Bachelorette - and I was the first Bachelor or Bachelorette star in the show’s history not to make a match! The backlash I experienced led to me writing a book, Better Single Than Sorry: A No-Regrets Guide to Loving Yourself and Never Settling.

After leaving the limelight, I DID find love, and married Joe Waterman, who I met on a blind date. We left Chicago after close to 20 years, and settled into an adorable little Ohio suburb outside of Cleveland with our two daughters, Mae and Charlotte.

From The Bachelor To The Burbs chronicles my life as it is now - a relatable 44-year-old suburban wife and mother of 2, dealing with all the joys and struggles that come life’s way. From chatting about the Bachelor and my incredible experiences on the show to commiserating about the highs and lows that come with marriage, parenting, working, health, beauty and aging - you won’t want to miss it!

Will you accept this rose, and join me on this journey?

Cancel Culture

Thanks for having the guts to say your opinion of the cancel culture. I agree 💯. It needs to stop. If you don’t side with the masses on social media…canceled. I miss the days we can have different opinions and live in peace. What it does is make people not be honest, fall into peer pressure and still have their true feelings deep inside. It’s ridiculous.

Wanted to like it

After listening to several episodes, I can’t continue. Jen interrupts so much. It’s uncomfortable and rude in my opinion. The point of having a guest is to let them talk. Just a little constructive criticism. 😬

Jen is the BEST!

I love listening to this show every week! I LOVE that she incorporates The Bachelor into suburban life and everything we want to learn about and everyone we want to hear from when it comes to health, parenting, skincare and literally everything I love. Can’t wait to hear more!
