The Bachelor: Whatever Happened To Amanda Stanton?

Another day, another addition to Bachelor Nation drama! From Clare Crawley and Dale Moss making history on The Bachelorette to Tayshia Adams leading an unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic mid-season switch-up, 2020 has been an interesting year for the hit ABC franchise. With the first Black Bachelor season underway, why not look back at what some of our favorite Bachelor Nation alums are up to now? 

Arguably the most beloved Bachelor in franchise history, Ben Higgins, had a slew of eligible women vying for his heart during Season 20. Not only did fans fall in love with Ben, but they also approved of his cast. So it was arguably no surprise when viewers happily welcomed back his former dates for more drama on both The Bachelorette and Bachelor in Paradise. Among the most recognizable alums? Clothing designer and single mother Amanda Stanton, who found love multiple times in Bachelor Nation. 

Keep on scrolling to find out what Amanda is up to now and whether she still stays in touch with Ben! 

Amanda Stanton has a new man in her life

Amanda Stanton has had her share of reality dating show drama. So let's recap: California-based Amanda went on The Bachelor as a single mother to her daughters, Kinsley and Charlie. After she didn't find love with Ben Higgins, Amanda appeared on Season 3 of Bachelor in Paradise, where she fell for Bachelorette Season 10 runner-up Josh Murray. Their brief engagement ended in 2016, and Amanda returned for Season 4 of Paradise. She hit it off with Robby Hayes before quitting the show in the fourth week. 

Amanda opened up about her many life experiences in her 2019 memoir, Now Accepting Roses. Between detailing her ex-husband's alleged alcoholism to her "instant" friendship with former co-star, Lauren Bushnell, Amanda did not hold back in her written revelations, per Us Weekly. Amanda even acknowledged her broken engagement to Josh, which she claimed was partly due to his controlling nature. The allegation is something Josh's ex and former Bachelorette Andi Dorfman also opened up about in her book, It's Not Ok. 

These days, Amanda is focused on her clothing line, Lani the Label, while raising her two girls. She still stays in touch with Ben, and she went Instagram official with her new beau attorney, Oren Agman, in August 2020. It's unclear whether the two are still dating as of this writing, but given Amanda's complicated relationship history, we hope she has found The One.
