Fans of The Bachelor, The Bachelorette and Bachelor Pad were closely watching social media sites Sunday as their favorites met up in NYC for a big charity event. Ashley and JP were there, as were many other franchise fan favorites to support Graham Bunn's 46NYC in their third annual Alex's Lemonade Stand event. Who else made an appearance?
Sunday's event was jam-packed with stars from The Bachelor franchise. Ashley Hebert and JP Rosenbaum attended last year to the delight of fans, and they were back for this year's event as well. Social media updates and pictures indicated that other "Bachelor Nation" attendees including Ashley Spivey, Rachel Truehart, Chris Bukowski, Ames Brown, Michelle Money and tons more.
The big event brought together both new and old faces from the franchise from Bob Guiney to newbies such as Dave Mallet. The list is too long to run through, as many would be left out, but it looks like it was a wildly successful event and everybody had a great time. There were a few faces that had been anticipated yet didn't show, including Ed Swiderski. Ashley Spivey tweeted that she was disappointed with that one, as he was expected to be on a 7 a.m. flight and instead tweeted about being at a pub elsewhere Sunday afternoon.
While there were some letdowns, it seems that fans had an amazing time meeting all of their favorites. Ashley and JP were clearly crowd favorites, but there were plenty of photos shared on Twitter with tons of "Bachelor Nation" smiling faces. The event went well last year, but seemed to be huge in comparison this year. Fans will have to stay tuned for updates on how much money was raised to help battle childhood cancers, as donations can still be made online.
