Carly Waddell is a contestant on the 2015 season of The Bachelor and we’ve got the info on her as well as some big spoilers, so if you don’t want to read any spoilers, turn back now. Okay, let’s just come out and say it … Waddell does not win the heart of Bachelor star Chris Soules. She does, however, say one of the funniest lines in Bachelor history about “virgin” contestant Ashley Iaconetti, by saying, “Her mouth is not a virgin.” Read on for more facts about Waddell and her time on the show.
1. Her Solo Date With Chris Is Very Erotic
For Carly’s one-on-one date with Chris Soules, they meet up with a “love doctor” who takes them through very erotic exercises that become awkward. The previews make you think that Chris and Carly are getting their freak on. It’s sort of true, but they aren’t having sex. The awkward exercises that the love guru has them do actually brings them unexpectedly closer because they both feel equally uncomfortable.
Carly gets a rose from Chris that night. On episode 7 is when she reportedly gets sent home.
2. Bachelorette Contestant Zak Waddell Is Her Brother
You may remember Zak Waddell from Desiree Hartsock’s season of The Bachelorette. Not only is he a member of the Bachelor franchise, he’s also Carly’s brother. Zak liked to take his shirt off and was very nice to look at. He was a drilling engineer and consultant for AIP Inc. who stayed on the show long enough for us to worship him, but didn’t win over Desiree Hartsock.

5. She’s A Very Romantic Girl
