We all know about the lifelong friendships formed under the strange circumstance that is being cast on a show like The Bachelor, but what about the friendships that came before the show? While some contestants enter their season alongside someone they may already know (ahem Caelynn and Hannah B.), others are familiar with members of Bachelor Nation before they receive their first rose. There's no solid proof that knowing a member of Bachelor Nation gets you a leg up on being cast for the show, but we're pretty sure it doesn't hurt. We've rounded up contestants from The Bachelor who were friends with alumni before they stepped foot in front of the camera.
