Insiders: Chantal O'Brien Gained 15 Pounds While On 'The Bachelor!' Exclusive!

Ali Fedowtowsky wasn’t the only one to pack on the pounds while she was on ABC’s hit reality show…sources tell us Chantal gained weight too!

Since the Sports Illustrated bikini shoot on last season’s The Bachelor, readers have been speculating about Chantal O’Brien‘s weight. The 28-year-old Seattle native was fit and trim when she first arrived at the Bachelor house, but by the final few rose ceremonies she was filling out her dresses more than before. Sources tell our eyes weren’t deceiving us — Chantal fell victim to the unhealthy lifestyle at the Bachelor house!

“Chantal gained about 15 pounds when she was on the show,” insiders tell us. “They feed them tons of food and alcohol and it’s hard to stay healthy.”

Bachelorette Ali Fedotowsky went through the same thing during her stint at on the show last year.

“I didn’t think much of it, but everyone noticed,” Ali said about her 10 pound weight gain to OK! magazine last summer. “I just wanted to eat more [while I was on the show]. I also wasn’t as active as I usually am at home.”

Luckily, Ali was able to shed the weight pretty quickly by following some key guidelines that she explained here.

Since finishing the show, Chantal found new love and we’re sure she’s getting back to her healthy regiment. Can you imagine living in The Bachelor house with unlimited gourmet foods and drinks? We’d gain weight too!
