Aspiring dolphin trainers, whabooms and chicken enthusiasts, oh my!

Whether it's a contestant's preference to keep their professional life separate from reality TV stardom or a producer's decision to up the gimmick factor, The Bachelor and The Bachelorette has seen its fair share of wacky job professions over the years.

While being dubbed a "dog lover" or "free spirit" is a kinder way to conceal possible unemployment, some Bachelor Nation members have literally opted out of telling their potential fiancé they're a real life doctor (!!) in favor of the "tickle monster" title. (Luckily, Jonathan Treece has come clean about his impressive career on this season of Bachelor in Paradise.)

Then there are suitors like Lucas "Whaboom" Yancey, whose fame-seeking shtick during Rachel Lindsay's season earned him the boot early on.

Whaboom went all out in representing his so-called job title, and as host Chris Harrisonexplained, "It's a lifestyle. It's an essence. It's who he is. It's a noun, it's a verb, it's an adverb... like, you can be Whaboom and you can be Whaboomed and you can Whaboom and you can call somebody a Whaboom." 

So in the name of journalism, we rounded up 15 of the most ridiculous Bachelor Nation job titles and tracked down the contestant's actual professions. Check it below!
