Remember Him? Kuna Man Appears on The Bachelor: The Greatest Seasons – Ever
When ABC announced their 10-week limited series The Bachelor: The Greatest Seasons - Ever!, I was thrilled.
Due to COVID-19 delaying the production of Clare Crawley's season of The Bachelorette, ABC opted to fill the gaping whole in their schedule by airing a look back at some of the most memorable seasons in the franchise's history. Each episode condenses a full season of The Bachelor or The Bachelorette down to three hours and includes exclusive new "where are they now" interviews with the major players from the season.
Last night, they recapped Kaitlyn Bristowe's season of The Bachelorette. It's the season where producers forced two women to compete for the lead role on night one, gifted us future Bachelor, Ben Higgins...and happened to include a guy from Kuna!
As much as I LOVE the franchise, I'll be honest. I didn't start watching until Ben Higgins's season which aired after Kaitlyn's season so I totally forgot her season was the one that Joshua Albers from Kuna was part of!
The recap episode featured the Kuna native several times, like when Kaitlyn destroyed his hair while trying to give him a mohawk and his ultimate undoing, speaking up about how upset the men were that Nick Viall had joined the cast in week four. He confronted Nick, we pulled Kaitlyn aside to tell her none of the men wanted Nick there and then looked like a liar when she called out the men for being dishonest with her about their feelings. When no one spoke up, she sent Joshua packing that week. The guys called him out for his behavior during The Men Tell All.
He went on to appear on Bachelor in Paradise but ultimately left alone. Luckily, since then he's found his happy ending! After seeing photos of actress/producer/Miss Rhode Island 2005, Allison Paganetti online he sort of Instagram stalked her, leaving behind a TON of likes on her photos. She eventually reached out to him via DM in 2017. Just a few days later, she jumped on a flight to Boise to be his plus one at a friend's wedding.
The couple married in 2018 and welcomed their first child, a son, in January of this year. Shawn Booth, the eventual winner of Kaitlyn's season, attended the wedding. Joshua still operates Albers Custom Welding servicing Boise, Eagle, Meridian, Kuna, Nampa and Caldwell.
