There's a long history of people in the Bachelor franchise having eye-catching careers. Over the years, Bachelor Nation has seen everything from a "sorority recruiter" to a "chicken enthusiast." This season of The Bachelorette has a few quirky job titles, including "boy band manager." But there's another guy with an interesting job who is getting a lot of attention this season. For any fans still wondering what Noah Erb's real job is, the Bachelorette contestant posts a lot about his career on social media.
Noah Erb is a 25-year-old travel nurse from Tulsa, Oklahoma. His job title isn't one that people see very often, so it's sparked some questions about what exactly it entails. According to TravelNursing.org, "travel nurses fill gaps in staffing needs for hospitals and facilities across the country for specific periods of time." The site goes on to explain that travel nurses will work in one place for a contracted period of time, usually somewhere between two and seven months. Since Noah travels to different locations for work every few months, his Instagram is filled with enviable pics from around the world, including the Philippines, Hawaii, and the slopes of Canada.
However, even Noah's patients apparently still have questions about what exactly he does. "Every one of my patients or my patients' families, thinks I'm a porn star," Noah joked in a TikTok from February. It's safe to say that probably doesn't actually fall under Noah's job responsibilities as a travel nurse, but hey, if the mustache fits...
Noah posts a ton of TikToks during his breaks from saving lives. In one, he calls himself "the undisputed nap spot finder of the hospital," and another has him showing off his dance moves in a hospital bathroom. But Noah also takes his job seriously. On Halloween, he posted an Instagram selfie of himself in scrubs and said, "this is no costume," so it's clear he wears his scrubs with pride for his work.
Since this season of The Bachelorette filmed in the middle of the coronavirus pandemic, Noah presumably had to take a break from his job during an important time to be a nurse. However, judging by his recent social media activity, he appears to be back in action.
Season 16 of The Bachelorette continues on Tuesday, Nov. 17, at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
