Natasha Parker was recently announced as one of the contestants on Bachelor in Paradise season 7. Viewers were first introduced to Natasha when she vied for Peter Weber’s heart on his season of The Bachelor. She made it to week six before Peter realized that the pair didn’t have a strong enough connection or their relationship to move forward. Even though Natasha left heartbroken, she made several friends in Bachelor Nation along the way.
Before Natasha became a part of Bachelor Nation, she had already worked in the entertainment industry. In the past, she’s worked as a production manager for HBO, and most recently, as a brand marketing director for a hospitality company based in New York City. Natasha also freelanced as a producer while living in NYC, specializing in long-form branded content. Since then, Natasha has kept her TV roots but has also taken on a new career role.
Since getting sent home by Peter, who was dating Kelley Flanagan, Natasha has been thriving within Bachelor Nation. The 33-year-old is still based in New York City, however, she no longer works in TV production. According to her Instagram bio, Natasha is a certified meditation teacher and currently co-hosts the podcast Click Bait with Bachelor Nation. Natasha joined the Click Bait team just five months after the podcast made its debut. She now co-hosts the show alongside Joe Amabile and former The Bachelorette lead Tayshia Adams. The podcast originally had Hannah Ann Sluss – who was the winner of Peter’s season – as the third co-host, but she quickly left the show for unknown reasons. With this new job, Natasha has interviewed a plethora of different celebrities. Some of her guests include recent Bachelorette winner Blake Moynes, Summer House star Lindsay Hubbard, and more.
Aside from her bustling career as a podcaster, Natasha is back to being a reality star. She will appear on Bachelor In Paradise season 7 alongside her Click Bait co-host Joe Amabile. During a recent podcast episode, the two revealed they had been away from the podcast as they were filming the new season. Moreover, Natasha explained how she leaned on Joe throughout the entire process. “We can’t break everything down, but I will say that multiple times I went over to Joe,” she explained on the July 8 episode of Click Bait. “Joe was like our ‘Paradise’ guru because he had been there before. So, I’m like, ‘Joe, is this what happens?’ He goes, ‘It wasn’t like this my season.’ (…) I was like, ‘Really?’ Because we just didn’t know.” While it is unclear if Natasha met her match on BIP, she may have left Mexico without her dream man according to certain spoilers.
The new season of BIP starts tonight, and fans cannot wait to see how Natasha’s story will unfold. Will Natasha meet her match, or will she go home without an engagement ring? Viewers will have to watch and find out if Natasha ends up with her fairytale ending.
Bachelor in Paradise airs Mondays at 8 pm EST on ABC.
