What might have been! Jade Roper rose to fame after appearing on The Bachelor and Bachelor in Paradise, but she almost had the chance to be on another reality show: The Real Housewives of Orange County.
During an Instagram Q&A session on Thursday, December 2, a fan asked if the Bachelor Nation alum, 34, would ever agree to appear on the Bravo series. The Colorado native and her husband, Tanner Tolbert, moved to Orange County, California, earlier this year.
“Fun fact! I actually had a preliminary interview about a year and a half ago for RHOC!” Roper replied. “Haha. But I didn’t get a second interview.”
The “Mommies Tell All” podcast cohost made her Bachelor Nation debut during season 19 of The Bachelor, which aired in 2015. After Chris Soules eliminated her during week eight of the competition, Roper returned to the franchise for season 2 of Bachelor in Paradise, where she met Tolbert, also 34.
The duo tied the knot in January 2016 in a ceremony that aired during season 20 of The Bachelor. The couple share three children: Emerson, 4, and sons Brooks, 2, and Reed, 12 months.
