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

4. Teddi Grew Up In A Religious Household

Teddi’s ABC bio reveals that she grew up in a “strict Christian household.” However, she says that she “lives by her own rules,” despite her upbringing. Teddi often posts photos with her sister, Kayla Jo, and brother on Instagram. Her sister got married in 2019 and her her first child in 2020. She is currently expecting her second child, too, which means Teddi will soon have two nephews! In 2015, Teddi also wrote a special Instagram post for her mom on Mother’s Day, where she wrote, “Happy Mother’s Day to the woman who no one believes I’m biologically related to. Love you mama.”

5. Teddi Is A Virgin

When Teddi got to Bachelor in Paradise, she introduced herself as “Teddi the virgin,” which is something fans knew about her from The Bachelor. On the premiere episode of The Bachelor, Teddi revealed to viewers that she was waiting until marriage to have sex. “I made the decision at a young age,” she explained. “I would say probably too young, looking back. But I’m a lot more open now. I definitely want to wait until I’m in love to have sex because I have waited this long.” She opened up to Clayton about the decision on their one-on-one date, as well.
