For many fans of The Bachelorette, it seemed that DeAnna Pappas would bring Jeremy Anderson all the way to the end last season. The two formed an immediate bond, each having experience losing a parent. They felt comfortable together and she often showed him more attention than the other men on the show, which ended up alienating him from the rest of the group. DeAnna brought Jeremy all the way to the overnight dates but ended up eliminating him in an emotional rose ceremony. He even went back for her to try one last time on the season finale, but she ended up accepting Jesse Csincsak’s proposal. Today, Jeremy has moved on, gone back to work, and gotten on with his life.
Jeremy Anderson headed back to work just one month ago, taking a little time for himself after appearing on The Bachelorette. Once a real estate lawyer, he changed fields and now works in litigation, though it wasn’t his choice. “I didn’t make the switch — that was the only spot open when they rehired me,” he said in an interview this week. Anderson spent much of the last few months traveling and doing press for The Bachelorette but says he has no desire to enter the world of show business. “I worked too hard to be a lawyer. I wasn’t going to give it up. I like what I am doing. I liked what I was doing before the show,” he said. “I am a fresh attorney, so anything that I start with, I am going to hit the ground running.”
Just last week, Anderson headed to New York City to support fellow Bachelorette cast member, Graham Bunn, who launched his own clothing line, 46 NYC. When asked who turned out for the event, he responded: “Graham’s girlfriend, Crishell Stause. who plays Amanda Dillon on All My Children, a couple buddies who were on the show, and Jason Williams, who was on the Duke national championship team. It was awesome. It was a good crowd.”
For those Jeremy fans hoping to see the Texas lawyer get back on television, they’ll about to be sorely disappointed. “I can honestly say The Bachelorette was a one-time thing. I wanted to have fun with it and throw caution to the wind,” he said. “I can see why other people are attracted to it. It looks fun, but being on the other side of the fence for a very limited time, it’s not something I’d want to build a life around. It doesn’t suit me.”
