Jubilee Sharpe is one of the bachelorettes looking for love with Ben Higgins on ABC’s The Bachelor 2016 season this winter. She has already made quite the impression in the first couple of episodes, and teasers indicate that she will be getting some quality time with Ben in the episodes ahead. Just what do viewers need to know about this Season 20 contender?
This Fort Lauderdale, Florida resident is 24-years-old and she has a military past. In addition, Jubilee Sharpe has done a bit of modeling. Her ABC profile indicates that she likes both country and R&B music and she loves movies like Newsies, The Notebook and Lord of the Rings.
Sharpe says that she considers her greatest achievement to be her military service, as she joined at the age of 18 and served full-time for more than four years. Bachelor viewers have seen that she is definitely a strong personality in the house with the other bachelorettes, but she considers herself to be funny, easygoing, adaptable, intellectual and typically reserved.
Jubilee may live in Florida now, but she spent five years living in Montana. She seemingly feels comfortable in both the country and the city. According to this Bachelor contestant’s Twitter profile, she is close with her family and she has at least eight tattoos.
While Sharpe is proud of her military service, she served in Afghanistan and her old tweets make it clear that she was extremely anxious to return home. While she has said that she considers herself to be a tomboy, and she is still involved in the Army, Jubilee loves to glam it up a bit, as well.
Sharpe is currently studying to be a cardiac sonography technologist. It looks like despite the break for filming The Bachelor this past fall, Jubilee should be wrapping up her studies this spring. Show host Chris Harrison shared via Yahoo! TV that Jubilee is bold, loyal and strong, but she is also sweet and down-to-earth. He lists her as one of the bachelorettes that fans should definitely keep an eye on this winter. This Bachelor contestant was born in Haiti, and she was adopted as a young child and brought to the United States.
Sharpe also admits that dating in her regular life in Fort Lauderdale has been a challenge, as she notes that oftentimes men have preconceived notions about women who have served in the military. Jubilee says she knows who she is and she definitely seems to know what she is looking for in a man. Sharpe explains that after watching Ben on Kaitlyn Bristowe’s season of The Bachelorette, she liked what she saw and she thinks that she and Ben could definitely have a future together.
This is one Bachelor contestant who definitely makes a strong impression, and many fans can see why Ben Higgins would be interested in keeping her around for a while. Could she be the one to snag his final rose, though? Reality Steve‘s spoilers confirm that she will be around for a bit, and some think she is a contestant who could definitely make an impact on the franchise in other ways, as well. If Jubilee does not earn Ben’s final rose, could she take a spin on Season 3 of Bachelor in Paradise or be a contender for the spring Bachelorette season?
Tune in to ABC’s The Bachelor 2016 season airing on Monday nights to see just how things progress for Jubilee Sharpe. Will Ben Higgins become smitten with her, or will her journey to find love be cut short of earning that final rose?
