Virginia-based high school teacher Ashley Elmore was booted from The Bachelor this past Monday (Jan. 11), but gained instant popularity among students in the process.
Elmore says her whole school has been buzzing about her appearance on TV, with kids constantly running into her classroom to sneak a peek at her.
One group of freshmen bombarded her for pictures and autographs while a student shed never met before baked her a cake with gummy worms on top.
Elmore is flattered by the praise but finds it pretty hilarious that shes the talk of the school.
Teens are always gossiping about The Bachelor in the hallways and trying to get her to reveal secrets about the show.
However, shes become a pro at deflecting their questions and keeping their focus on learning.
The Bachelor airs Mondays on ABC.
