The Hottest Women in Bachelor History: Who's #1?

by at .  Updated at .

It may not have the best track record when it comes to lasting love, but The Bachelor franchise does not lack for eye candy.

Let's face it, members of Bachelor Nation have seen some truly gorgeous human beings over a decade and a half on ABC.

This is true on both sides of the gender coin.

No wonder Pilot Pete can't seem to make up his mind this season. (See The Bachelor spoilers for the final word on that.)

In any case, let's get down to business:

Here are the hottest women of The Bachelor - some of whom became The Bachelorette, and some of whom still might.

For good reason. Obviously, this is subjective, but that's why it's fun. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, or something.

And just so we're clear on this, we've also ranked the hottest bachelors, so we are 100% equal opportunity objectifiers.

See if you agree or if you think we're crazy ...

42. Kaitlyn Bristowe

Kaitlyn Bristowe
Kaitlyn Bristowe, the 2015 Bachelorette, is a bona fide cutie. And was never afraid to say and do what she thinks, upping the wild card hotness factor.

41. Raven Gates

Raven Gates
The pride of Hoxie, Arkansas, Raven Gates, Nick Viall's runner-up in 2017, is as cute as they come ... making it all the more surprising that she has never come. (Sorry.)

40. Tenley Molzahn

Tenley Molzahn
A controversial pick, perhaps, but we always had a soft spot for chipmunk-voiced, bubbly Tenley Molzahn.

39. Tayshia Adams

Tayshia Adams
Tayshia Adams would be an amazing Bachelorette - she's rumored to be in consideration for the role in 2020. We can just forget about the whole John Paul Jones thing.

38. Caelynn Miller-Keyes

Caelynn Miller-Keyes
Caelynn Miller-Keyes had a great run on The Bachelor Season 23, but ultimately, Colton determined she wasn't worthy of his final rose or first roll in the hay.

37. Courtney Robertson

Courtney Robertson
Courtney Robertson reminded us often that she did modeling. Then wrote a book about reverse cowgirling Ben Flajnik in the Fantasy Suite. That is all.

36. Victoria Fuller

Victoria Fuller
Not unlike Courtney R., the sultry Victoria Fuller is was one of the most detested contestants in franchise history. Unlike Courtney, she won't go on to win the final rose. Thank goodness.

35. Corinne Olympios

Corinne Olympios
Corinne Olympios overdid it with her sexual antics and forced theatrics at times during Nick Viall's season, but she is most definitely an attractive female.

34. Danielle Maltby

Danielle Maltby
Danielle Maltby was one of the more striking women to compete for Nick Viall's heart. Amazingly, she didn't even make the hometown dates.

33. Kelsey Weier

Kelsey Weier
Iowa native and Bachelorette contender Kelsey Weier finished fourth on Peter Weber's season of The Bachelor. One can kinda see why he had a hard time making up his mind at certain points.

32. Britt Nilsson

Britt Nilsson
Britt Nilsson may have lost out to Kaitlyn Bristowe as The Bachelorette in 2015, but she remains one of the cuter contestants in recent memory.

31. Tia Booth

Tia Booth
Often confused with Raven Gates, Tia Booth is actually Raven Gates' friend from Arkansas. Like Raven, she made a strong impression on The Bachelor. Unlike Raven, she's being considered as a potential star of The Bachelorette in 2020. Unexpected, but ... not hard to see why.

30. Desiree Hartsock

Desiree Hartsock
The Bachelorette star Desiree Hartsock had a girl next door appeal and a cheesy authenticity that made her look amazing in anything or nothing.

29. Jen Schefft

Jen Schefft
Jen Schefft had one of the poorest track records of any Bachelor(ette) star, but looks were never the issue.

28. Jillian Harris

Jillian Harris
Like a fine wine, Jillian Harris gets better with age: She's arguably more attractive as a designer on HGTV's Love it or List it Too than she ever was on The Bachelorette!

27. Emily Maynard

Emily Maynard
Emily Maynard stunned as The Bachelorette and before that, as The Bachelor winner. Both engagements she was a part of fell apart in like 10 minutes, but she went on to find love outside of TV with Tyler Johnson. Makes you wonder.

26. Nikki Ferrell

Nikki Ferrell
Nikki Ferrell and Juan Pablo Galavis were doomed from the start ... but hey, she got to be on TV and will never have a problem generating interest on dating apps with look like this.

25. Clare Crawley

Clare Crawley
Clare Crawley has been under the radar since finishing second to Nikki on Juan Pablo Galavis' season (though she did have a brief stint in Paradise). Now 38, she's rumored to be in the running to be The Bachelorette in 2020. That would make for a different season for sure - and a good one.

24. Lauren Bushnell

Lauren Bushnell
Lauren Bushnell, Ben Higgins' fiancee and frontrunner from the start on The Bachelor Season 20, has a winning personality and is easy on the eyes. Typically a combination that guys like.

23. Catherine Giudici

Catherine Giudici
Catherine Giudici (now Catherine Lowe) captured Sean's eye from the start. Her personality is amazing ... but we're just saying. This doesn't hurt.

22. Deanna Pappas

Deanna Pappas
Deanna Pappas, in many ways, deserves credit for all of this. It was her shocking dismissal by Brad Womack - and subsequent turning away of Jason Mesnick - that gave the show a huge popularity boost just as social media and the Internet were becoming ubiquitously linked to The Bachelor in 2008.

21. AshLee Frazier

AshLee Frazier
AshLee Frazier came across as a bit desperate, catty and clingy sometimes ... the kind of insecurity that is kind of stunning considering how pretty she is.

20. Gia Allemand

Gia Allemand
Gia Allemand, may she rest in peace, was as pretty as she was charming during her stints on the franchise. We will always miss her.

19. Rozlyn Papa

Rozlyn Papa
Rozlyn Papa was famously kicked off the show for having an inappropriate relationship with a Bachelor staff member. That is one lucky staff member.

18. Kristina Schulman

Kristina Schulman
Kristina Schulman didn't last that long on Nick's season, but became a standout on the ensuing season of Bachelor in Paradise ... for obvious reasons.

17. Rachel Lindsay

Rachel Lindsay
Rachel Lindsay, the first African-American Bachelorette and third-place finisher on The Bachelor, got to this point for so many reasons, but the fact that she is a bona fide cutie certainly didn't hurt.

16. Jade Roper

Jade Roper
Nebraska girl next door Jade Roper was an actual Playboy model, which sums it up really. (This is one of the few photos of her we can actually show you.)

15. Vanessa Grimaldi

Vanessa Grimaldi
Vanessa Grimaldi won The Bachelor Season 21 because Nick Viall thought she had the whole package, but purely on superficial grounds, the Italian-Canadian is beyond gorgeous.

14. Ali Fedotowsky

Ali Fedotowsky
Ali Fedotowsky was as cute as they come, and somehow didn't make it work on either show. It makes you wonder what kind of guys get cast on these things.

13. Trista Rehn Sutter

Trista Rehn Sutter
Trista Rehn earns a few bonus points for actually marrying her final rose recipient and having two kids with him ... but would have ranked plenty high even without that.

12. Amanda Stanton

Amanda Stanton
Single mom Amanda Stanton made the final four of Ben Higgins' season, then became a Bachelor in Paradise standout the following two seasons, including but not limited to a serious relationship with Josh Murray. She's stunning.

11. Hannah Brown

Hannah Brown
Hannah Brown, a.k.a. Beast Mode, was one of the more ... quirky contestants in recent memory. No wonder ABC went with her as the next Bachelorette even though Colton Underwood eliminated her before a host of other generics.

10. Danielle Lombard

Danielle Lombard
Danielle Lombard was one of the more striking women to compete for Nick Viall's heart on Season 21. She didn't get a hometown date, but we don't think she'll be lacking for interest now.

9. Cassie Randolph

Cassie Randolph
Cassie Randolph caught Colton's eye on the 2019 season of the Bachelorette, and it's not hard to see why. She's not unattractive by any means. The whole season played out somewhat amazingly, with Cassie having serious doubts about Colton but Underwood determined to make her the final pick. It's unclear if they have ... consummated the relationship but one has to imagine they have. Will they make it to the altar?

8. JoJo Fletcher

JoJo Fletcher
JoJo Fletcher, the runner-up on Ben Higgins' season of The Bachelor in 2016, is the first second-place finisher to get The Bachelorette job in many years. It's no surprise that the producers broke from recent tradition in giving her the nod ... just look at this photo and the way she handled getting her heart broken with such class on The Bachelor finale. And look at this photo again because wow.

7. Lauren Burnham

Lauren Burnham
Lauren Burnham, Arie Luyendyk Jr.'s fiancee (for the moment), might take awhile to open up emotionally, and took some heat from Bachelor Nation for how little she spoke at times, but she really does seem like a sweet person - and it takes about one millisecond to notice how drop dead gorgeous she is. Goodness.
