Before becoming the Bachelorette, she was a contestant on season nineteen of The Bachelor.
One of the contestants on her season of The Bachelorette, Ryan McDill, once dated former The Bachelor champion Nikki Ferrell.
Born in Leduc, Canada, to Leslie Hipkin and Mike Bristowe, she has a sister named Haley. She got engaged to Shawn Booth when she selected him as the winner of her season of The Bachelorette, but the two separated before marrying.
The first time she sought love on reality television, she was rejected by Bachelor star Chris Soules.
