DeAnna Marie Stagliano (born DeAnna Marie Pappas) is a TV personality best known for her participation in season 11 of the ABC reality television show The Bachelor, and season 4 of The Bachelorette.

Television career[edit]

In 2007, Pappas decided to audition for The Bachelor, a reality television dating game show on ABC Television. She made it to the final rose ceremony, where bachelor Brad Womack rejected both women.[1] He was chastised by Ellen DeGeneres, who later retracted her statement.[2] ABC Television then tapped Pappas to star in The Bachelorette. The news was broken to her by Ellen DeGeneres[3] while she was a guest on DeGeneres' daytime talk show.

In the 2008 season of The Bachelorette, Pappas eventually rejected single dad Jason Mesnick and accepted the marriage proposal of professional snowboarder Jesse Csincsak. Their relationship lasted a few months before the engagement was called off. Mesnick went on to become The Bachelor in 2009.[4][5]

In October 2008, Pappas won Fox Reality Channel's "Golden Realtini",[6] given to the most memorable reality performer of the year.

During her engagement, in 2009, Pappas became the co-host of Get Married on Lifetime TV,[7] reporting on wedding planning.[8]

In late 2011, DeAnna was on the "Big Fat Greek Bachelorette Party" episode of the Oxygen cable-channel show Bachelorette Party.

Personal life[edit]

In August 2010, Pappas became engaged to Stephen Stagliano,[9] whose brother, Michael Stagliano, was on season five of The Bachelorette.[10] They were married October 22, 2011 in Georgia.[11] Their daughter, Addison Marie, was born February 6, 2014.[12] Their son, Austin Michael, was born March 1, 2016.[13][14]

Humanitarian work[edit]

In January 2009, Pappas visited American troops in Kuwait as part of a USO visit. She was joined by actress Christine Lakin and Miss USA 2009 Rachel Smith.[15]
