Back in 2016, before Hannah Brown, Peter Weber, or Colton Underwood were even considering reality TV careers, 26 men competed to fall in love with JoJo Fletcher on Season 12 of The Bachelorette.
JoJo was selected as the lead after getting jilted by Ben Higgins (who had previously told her that he loved her) in the finale of his season.
The suitors vying for the fan-favorite’s hand in marriage included iconic Bachelor Nation alums Chad Johnson, Wells Adams, Derek Peth, Robby Hayes, and Evan Bass.
JoJo ultimately picked Jordan Rodgers over Robby Hayes, and the two are still engaged today.
Where is Robby Hayes from ‘The Bachelorette’ now?
Since getting rejected by JoJo in the Season 12 finale, the former pool salesman has been a staple on reality TV. He appeared on Season 4 of Bachelor in Paradise in 2017, where he romanced Amanda Stanton. Amanda had gotten engaged to Josh Murray on the previous season of the show, so it was no surprise that she wasn’t ready to get too serious with Robby. The pair decided to break up before the finale.
Robby next appeared on three episodes of Single & Thorny alongside several fellow Bachelor/Bachelorette alums, including Iggy Rodriguez, Grant Kemp, Brady Ervin, and Jasmine Goode.
In a move few saw coming, Robby had a brief spot on Season 7 of Vanderpump Rules. He teased having a fling with Scheana Marie, but their relationship ultimately did not take off, and he never appeared on the Bravo series again.
After making his relationship with Juliette Porter official in May of 2019, Robby began starring on Season 3 of Siesta Key on MTV.
But, their romance was truly a summer fling, as it was later reported that they had split up in July of 2019. It’s unclear if Robby will be participating in a fourth season of the show.
In 2019, Robby was implicated in a bit of a scandal when Chrisley Knows Best patriarch Todd Chrisley accused Robby of having an affair with his daughter Lindsie Chrisley on tape.
Interestingly, Todd also claimed that Lindise had done the same thing with another Bachelorette alum, Josh Murray (the two had feuded in the past after they both dated Amanda Stanton).
Robby later confirmed that he did have a relationship with Lindsie, but that it was not just an affair. He claimed that he had a relationship with Todd’s estranged daughter, and that it ended in 2016.
Outside of his career on the small screen, Robby works as a model and he’s also the founder of the brand marketing agency Rebella. The brand has worked on campaigns for Avril Lavigne, Rebook, and Vineyard Vines.
The former finalist also promotes products on his social media accounts, and he’s currently based in Venice Beach, Cali.
