At least two of Bachelorette Kaitlyn Bristowe’s 25 guys may not be on the show for the right reasons. Both Chris Strandburg and Josh Seiter have appeared on reality shows before — something that may make fans wonder if they are in search of love, or on a quest to become serial reality TV stars.
Once you learn more about both contestants, it will become obvious that one guy appears to be in it for the fame, and the other might be ready to settle down. Of course, you won’t find out for sure until the upcoming season of the Bachelorette gets underway in May, but speculating about their intentions will give you something to do while you wait.
Eight years ago, Chris Strandburg was a contestant on Season 2 of Janice Dickinson Modeling Agency on the Oxygen Network. The series followed the drama surrounding supermodel Janice Dickinson and her modeling agency. Chris was 20-years-old when he was cast to become one of Dickinson’s models on the show.
Strandburg made something of himself after his time on Dickinson’s show. In fact, he’s seems to have a good head on those broad shoulders. According to WetPaint, Chris earned a degree in Biology at UC San Diego and UCLA, and got his doctorate from the UCLA School of Dentistry. The reality show model transformed himself into a successful dentist, and currently practices in Clarksville, Tennessee.
Now 28, Strandburg will make a notable entrance on the season premiere of the Bachelorette, riding up to the mansion in a cupcake car. Is there anything better than a hot dentist to remind you to floss if you have a sweet tooth? Perhaps he is there for the right reasons after all.

While it’s possible that Chris came on the Bachelorette to find a wife, one of his cast mates, Josh Seiter, appears to be using his time on the show to boost his fifteen minutes of fame.
Seiter appeared on the E! reality show Escape Club in 2014, getting booted off after three episodes. If you’ve never heard of the show, you’re not alone. But chances are, you will be seeing a lot of Josh — or at least a lot of his tattooed body — on the Bachelorette.
According to a previous report from the Inquisitr, Josh is a male stripper who has also worked as a high-paid escort. As a side note, Seiter also attended law school, but perhaps stripping brings in more cash — and a lot less paperwork.

It’s likely that he didn’t make it very far on the show because he started promoting his strip club act on Twitter before the cast and crew were said to be filming Episode 5. However, it appears that he is trying to capitalize on his reality show stardom by tagging just about every post on social media with #TheBachelorette hashtag.
There for the right reasons? Probably not. Perhaps he’s better suited to join the Bachelor in Paradise this summer.
