Genevieve Parisi was on cloud nine after connecting with Justin Glaze on the first day of filming Bachelor in Paradise. However, previews for the Oct. 3 episode reveal that new arrival, Victoria Fuller, gets a one-on-one date with Justin. The sneak peek footage shows Genevieve in tears while seemingly fighting with Justin about the situation.

Aside from that, Genevieve’s nemesis from The Bachelor is also on the beach. Genevieve and Shanae Ankney made no secret of their past drama when they both arrived on the show. Genevieve made it clear that she was not happy to see Shanae again. Learn more about Genevieve with five facts below:

1. What Happened To Genevieve On ‘The Bachelor’?

Genevieve was a contestant on season 26 of The Bachelor with Clayton Echard. The show aired during the beginning of 2022. Most of Genevieve’s screen time on the show was in relation to her feud with Shanae. Genevieve was one of the women who openly criticized Shanae’s behavior and antics on the show.

It all came to a head during one group date that the ladies were on together. They were split into teams for the date, and Genevieve’s team won, giving them the chance for more time with Clayton at the after-party. Shanae crashed the after-party, went off on Genevieve, and threw the team’s trophy into the pool.

Still, Clayton kept Shanae around and took her and Genevieve on the dreaded two-on-one date. Clayton eliminated Shanae on the date and gave Genevieve the rose. However, the following week (week 7), Genevieve had trouble opening up during a group therapy date, and she decided to leave the show.

2. What Does Genevieve Do?

Before she was a contestant on The Bachelor, Genevieve worked as a bartender in Los Angeles. “Small town girl living in Los Angeles,” her Instagram bio still reads. It’s unclear if she still holds the bartending gig after her time on the show, though. In addition to bartending, she appears to like to spend a lot of time on the beach while living in sunny California.

3. Did Genevieve & Aaron Clancy Hookup?

During the Women Tell All special on season 26 of The Bachelor, Shanae and Genevieve had another confrontation. Shanae accused Genevieve of hooking up with former The Bachelorette contestant, Aaron Clancy, as soon as she ended things with Clayton and got home from filming. Genevieve insisted that she had only met Aaron at a bar and said they never hooked up. Aaron also later denied the claims.

4. Genevieve Loves Fishing

Growing up in a small town, Genevieve picked up fishing as one of her hobbies. She likes to spend time out on the water and has posted photos on Instagram of herself on fishing adventures. As a kid, she also enjoyed “catching frogs and digging up worms,” she revealed.

5. What Nationality Is Genevieve

Genevieve is Italian and said she grew up in a “big, loud, loving Italian family who [she] could not possibly love any more.”
