Contestant Jubilee Sharpe made a huge impact on Ben Higgins’ season of The Bachelor. While watching the Greatest Seasons Ever series, fans are wondering where she is now. The Army veteran currently resides in her hometown of Fort Lauderdale, Florida — and she’s still a fan of the franchise.
The Bachelor Nation babe made it to week 5 on the Indiana native’s season, and she won fans over quickly. While she started off warning others they “don’t want to mess with her,” she later revealed a softer side to herself, including being adopted after losing her whole family in Haiti.
“My three brothers and my parents died, but I don’t know the details,” she recounted to People in 2016. “I was 6, but I don’t remember my parents. My 4-year-old little sister and I went to live with my grandmother, but she had leprosy and was dying and too sick to take care of us.”
Needless to say, viewers were just as smitten with Jubilee during the throwback reair on June 22, and many wished she would have been brought back for an interview with Chris Harrison during the episode.
“Jubilee was one of the most interesting people with one of the most heart-wrenching backgrounds,” someone gushed on Twitter. “When you watch her, you have to watch her through the lens of empathy and feel for her. The problem is it’s clear that the show just wasn’t for her.” Someone else added, “I forgot how much I loved Jubilee! A queen!” Another tweet read, “Jubilee’s story will forever make my heart hurt so bad. SHE DESERVES ALL THE LOVE. Such a strong woman.”
After season 20, Jubilee went on to appear on seasons 3 and 5 of Bachelor in Paradise. Her first stint in Mexico was brief, as she was eliminated during the first rose ceremony. However, she did strike up a cute romance with John Graham (a.k.a. Venmo John) two seasons later, but they fizzled out after a few weeks.
Jubilee ran into a bit of trouble in February when she was arrested for a DUI in West Palm Beach, Life & Style confirmed at the time. She was released under her own recognizance. The reality star’s case is still open and she’s due in court on July 6.
The self-proclaimed “tomboy in heels” has since set her Instagram private, but her Twitter account reveals she’s still a fan of the reality franchise. She previously gushed over contestants like Hannah Ann Sluss, Tayshia Adams and Tyler Cameron. The reality starlet revealed she was single in November 2019, but considering what a catch she is, we have a feeling she won’t be looking for long.
