Chris

Season: Becca Kufrin
Notable Moment: Oh boy. He was the contestant to slowly deteriorate throughout the process, alternating between paranoid and cocky on the turn of a dime. He sparred with Lincoln, said Becca owed him "50,000 kisses" after ignoring her at a group date event and then showed up to her hotel room to say he would marry her right now. She then eliminated him. 

Connor

John

Season: Becca Kufrin
Notable Moment: Aside from being one of the founders of Venmo, John proved to be quite the lumberjack. 

Jordan

Season: Becca Kufrin
Notable Moment: A male model known for his professionality, he was also sent home on the two-on-one date...despite rocking the pair of shiny gold underwear Becca gifted him. 

Kendall

Season: Arie Luyendyk Jr.
Notable Moment: Kendall made it to the final three, charming Arie and viewers with her love for taxidermy, playing the ukulele and managing to remain calm, cool and collected on a two-on-one with Krystal. A member of Becca's girl gang. 

Kenny

Season: Rachel Lindsay
Notable Moment: The wrestler caused viewers eyes to rain after he FaceTimed his daughter after choosing to leave the show to be with his daughter when he and Rachel realized their connection just wasn't strong enough. 

Kevin

Notable Moment: The firefighter "won" Winter Games with Ashley Iaconetti, leaving the show as a couple. But they soon split, with Ashley going on to date Jared Haibon, who proposed during filming of season five. Shouldn't be awkward at all!

Krystal
