We wish there was a better way to introduce The Bachelor contestant Bibiana Julian beyond her history as a Miami Dolphins cheerleader. After all, she hasn’t done that gig for years! Nobody wants to be known for the same thing forever.
Yet, Bibiana doesn’t have much in the way of active social media — her Twitter profile is empty and her Instagram is set to private. Yet, if you search on Google you get a lot of modeling photos from her as well as the note that she was voted in 2006 as FHM’s “Sexiest Cheerleader.” Out of all of the contestants spotlighted so far for Arie Luyendyk Jr.’s season, Bibiana is clearly the one with the most exposure in terms of media attention.
So where is she now? Bibiana is 30 years old, she works as an executive assistant, she still lives in Miami, and despite her history as a cheerleader she apparently hated being at the football games. She just doesn’t care for the sport! Hopefully she’s a little more into racing since otherwise, being on a season starring a driver is going to be a little bit rough for her. Her ABC bio is mostly generic other than a couple of strange things. For one, she seems to think of popping pimples as some sort of guilty pleasure — she knows it’s gross, so at least she isn’t carrying around with her some sort of false sense of security that doing this sort of thing is actually appealing. Also, she apparently loves art to the point where she wishes she could be art. This makes no sense, but it also doesn’t make sense why ABC keeps asking some of these women in their bio questionnaires if they are lovers of art. Who cares?
Family is important to Bibiana, so if she makes it to hometown dates we imagine that could be super-intense if someone in her family doesn’t care for Arie.
Does she have a chance with Arie? – We could see something here. For one, she’s closer to his age than the majority of the women on this show. Also, she’s been in the public eye before and understands that — but she also has a normal job and has moved on past that phase of her life. Arie, to some degree, has done the same in becoming a real-estate agent. Bibiana seems like she could be a good character if she lasts long enough, and in this case we actually think that she will. She’s someone to watch when the show premieres on January 1.
