It’s hard to pinpoint the exact season when Bachelor and Bachelorette contestants shifted away from mostly lawyers, sales reps, and otherwise conventional careers in favor of embracing a medley of weird jobs. It’s been a trend since day one, and it was further amplified with the debut of the newest Bachelorette season, where our leading lady, Becca Kufrin, got seduced by suitors with esteemed titles such as “social media participant” and “colognoisseur.” What exactly do these entail? Please, guess away! (One of them involves cologne the fragrance, not Cologne the populous German city.) In honor of this duo officially joining the Ridiculous Bachelor Job Titles club, Vulture went back to the franchise’s 2002 debut and highlighted all of the weirdest jobs that have cropped up since, complete with photo evidence. It’s a fun stroll down memory lane, that’s for sure.

By that logic, I also consider myself to be a Pettyapreneur.

We haven’t a clue what this one means.
Any takers, ladies?
The Overzealous Fanboy
Last, and certainly least.
