Between bouts of pageant girl drama and misconceptions about who said what, this season of The Bachelor hasn't been the best for getting to know contestants like they're our neighbors in a college dorm. While the show has focused heavily on a handful of the same women, there are still a few floaters Bachelor Nation might as well call strangers. We don't know yet if she's definitely headed to the group's next foreign location, but who is Sydney on The Bachelor? The former NBA dancer has a couple of qualities that could have been interesting storylines had Miss USA scandals and misheard rumors not gotten in the way.
Initially introduced as one of Colton Underwood's first contestants during an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, 27-year-old Sydney finished second in the host's "Know or Go" game. Seeing as winner Annie was cut during Week 2 of The Bachelor, the game wasn't very telling about valid connections with Colton. We're still waiting on Sydney to prove that she has chemistry with the former NFL player, but the New York resident has definitely made the most of her screen time so far. In case she proves to be a sleeper hit later this season, we have the basics about Sydney below.
