If you're the type of casual Bachelor fan who never bothers to learn the contestants' last names, you're probably saving yourself from a few headaches. But this also keeps you from deep-diving into the contestants' pasts and discovering all their dirty laundry, which is honestly one of the best parts of each season.
Known to you as merely Vanessa, this season's Vanessa Grimaldi seems to be winning Nick over week after week, and her zero-gravity, puke-filled one-on-one made us fall in love with her. But Vanessa has been keeping a secret and it's pretty much unforgivable. She's…an…actress.
This weekend an unsuspecting fan spotted Vanessa while watching Blue Mountain State.

Which led others to find her IMDb page. This says it all, folks. Not only did Vanessa play "Girl" in Blue Mountain State, but she had two other roles in Being Human and Ascension.
Now, Vanessa hasn't had an IMDb-worthy acting role since 2014 and her career on the show is listed as special education teacher, so it's still possible she really did come on The Bachelor to find love. But who am I kidding? This information is permanently etched in my brain, where it will corrode my perceptions for the remainder of the season.
