Steve’s Bachelor spoilers indicate that Amanda went to the Paul Mitchell esthetician school, and she now has her own health and wellness site. Interestingly, it would appear that prior during her younger years, Amanda may have had some involvement in the entertainment industry.

There is an IMDb page for an Amanda Stanton that certainly seems to sync up to her age and hometown. Stanton was involved in several projects between 2006 and 2010, including The Cheetah Girls 2 and Merry Christmas, Drake & Josh, along with a couple of Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards specials. It sounds as if Stanton did a bit of stage work and a couple of television commercials when she was younger, as well.

Amanda is not the first parent to pop up on The Bachelor or The Bachelorette, and she surely will not be the last. However, there are some fans who are already buzzing about her decision to leave her daughters at home when they are both so young. Many will be interested to hear her backstory as Season 20 begins, though it is clear that her daughters are surrounded by family while their mom is away filming.
