‘Bachelor’ Reject Chooses Love Over Learning

LE ROY, N.Y. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – The latest Bachelor reject deserves an “A” for effort.

Sharon Staebell, an 8th and 9th grade teacher from Le Roy, New York, was booted from The Bachelor this past Monday (Jan. 12) after failing to romance single stud Jason Mesnick.

Her “F” in love was a hard pill to swallow, especially because Staebell quit her longtime teaching job to compete on the dating series.

Prior to the show, she was in her 9th year of teaching Spanish at a high school, but chose love over learning.

She says her students were sad to see her resign, but it’s something she “had to do” because she’s ready to find Mr. Right.

Luckily, after finding out Mesnick was Mr. Wrong, Staebell landed another teaching gig in New York and is back in the classroom.

She says her 8th and 9th graders watch The Bachelor and think it’s “pretty cool” that she was on it.

The Bachelor airs Mondays on ABC.
