Bachelor viewers first met Tia Booth during Season 22. She was a contestant on Arie Luyendyk Jr.’s season. She made it to the final four women before being sent home in a shocking elimination ceremony.
Tia Booth later went to Bachelor In Paradise for Season 5. She had a connection with Colton Underwood but ultimately left the beach single.
Undeterred, she returned to BIP for Season 7. She was once again unlucky in love and left the show single.
