Joan Vassos worked in the film industry prior to her appearance on The Golden Bachelor. She moved from behind the scenes to the spotlight, highlighting her experiences on the show. As the new season began, the first Golden Bachelorette spoke with Entertainment Tonight about her celebrity crushes.

She highlighted the good qualities of actor Rob Lowe, whom she met on one of his movie sets in her youth. Fans who may have had memorable experiences or celebrity crushes will find her more relatable as a result of this revelation, which humanizes her story. 


Joan shares some personal experiences

Joan told him about her in-person encounter with him and her role as an extra in one of his films. She claimed to have loved him since she was 21 and recalled being in St. Elmo's Fire.

She claimed he could recognize her as an extra in an instant. Vassos was seen quickly riding her bicycle past a fraternity house while Lowe's character Billy Hicks stood outside. The moment occurred around 52 minutes into the beloved film.

She also expressed her admiration for Kevin Costner, stating that she had thought of him as the rugged, sexy guy since Yellowstone, as opposed to Rob Lowe, who was more polished. She remarked that Costner was extremely handsome.

Vassos shared with ET what she's seeking in her future husband when it comes to her real-life crushes. After departing the Golden Bachelor early to support her daughter, who had just welcomed a baby, Vassos will be undergoing the full process for the first time.

Planning for future
