John Anderson, Formerly of Hillsboro and Trevecca, Joins The Bachelorette

John Anderson will likely enjoy more than his allotted 15 minutes of fame as a former baseball player for Trevecca Nazarene University and Hillsboro High School. Anderson, 26, has been picked as a cast member for Season 19 of ABC’s famous show “The Bachelorette.” He is among 32 guys vying for the affections of Rachel Recchia and Gabby Windey – the first time the show has featured two bachelorettes.

Season 26 of “The Bachelor” saw Reechia and Windey make it all the way to the final three before the season ended earlier this year. Anderson just ended off his seven-year college baseball career in 2021. After graduating from Hillsboro in 2014, Anderson’s tortuous route brought him to Georgia Highlands College, where he was cut after a fall practice in 2014, Cleveland State Community College (2016-17), and eventually Trevecca (2018-21). He served four seasons as a reserve outfielder for the Trojans.

His playing career lasted this long because he didn’t play in 2015, received a medical redshirt in 2018 after injuring his leg while fielding a wild pitch during preseason camp at Trevecca, and was allowed an extra year of eligibility due to COVID-19 canceling the season in 2020.

Anderson currently teaches English in the Nashville region, according to his show’s bio. Since cast members are not allowed to speak to the media until after their sections of “The Bachelorette” air, not much is known about Anderson’s experience on the show. At 7 p.m. central time on Monday, July 11th, the first episode of Season 19 will be broadcast. Episodes are available to view the next day via ABC.com and Hulu.
