Thanks to Reality Steve, the proverbial cat is out of the bag as far as The Bachelor Season 14 “On the Wings of Love” is concerned. Not only was the reality show blogger able to uncover the winner, as he did last year, but he also got details about each and every episode as well as all the dirt on the alleged “sex scandal” involving Rozlyn Papa and a producer on the show. (CLICK HERE to read about that and see candid photos of Rozlyn.)
In case you haven’t heard and the title of this post didn’t give it away, 23-year-old Vienna Girardi of Sanford, Florida is the “winner” of Season 14 of The Bachelor. Thanks to the amazing detective work by the folks over at fansofrealitytv.com I’ve been able to piece together some biographical info on the blond hottie:

UPDATE – I finally found out who Vienna was married to for a brief period of time! CLICK HERE to read about that.
UPDATE 2 – Did Vienna have a boyfriend while on the show? CLICK HERE!
UPDATE 3 – This Vienna character sure has an entertaining past! The latest chapter to emerge is her appearance in a topless calendar and a report of more topless photos being shopped around on the internet! CHECK IT OUT!
As far as finding out more about Vienna online, it seems the producers of The Bachelor have done a great jog of scrubbing the internet of her presence! Here is all that is left of her Facebook account – a cached image from a friend’s profile:
Here are some photos of Vienna Girardi from Facebook and Myspace, starting with the VERY rare bikini shot:
What could be better than a bikini shot? High school yearbook shot!

Here’s a curious shot of Vienna that looks to be taken recently. Notice the flowery ring on her left ring finger. Could she be covering up an engagement ring?!?

Here’s the official photo from ABC:
From what I’ve seen and read, it sounds as though Vienna is a kind, intelligent and obviously attractive young woman. She is a rarity on this type of reality show in that her resume does not list “model” and from what I can tell that isn’t something Vienna has pursued. Kudos! I’m like most everybody else in that I think the concept of The Bachelor is a little silly, but I’m not one to stand in anyone’s way of finding love, however they manage it So good luck to you Vienna and to you, too Jake!
Vienna and Vienna broke up just a few months after being engaged, and an explosive fight between the two was televised after The Bachelorette finale in 2010. Later Vienna started dating Kasey Kahl, who was a bachelor on Ali Fedotwosky’s season of The Bachelor, got a tattoo while filming, and was left on a glacier. The couple were cast on The Bachelor Pad in 2011, and their relationship went to a bad place while they tried to win against the other contestants. Months later they split, but appeared together on yet another reality show, VH1′s Couple’s Therapy, where Vienna accused Kasey of drinking too much and physically abusing her one night. Kasey also brought up painful memories of being abused by his mother’s boyfriends when he was a kid. Vienna and Kasey’s friend, fellow reality starlet Erica Rose (who’s dad gave Vienna a nose job) told Rumor Fix that Vienna was the one who was abusive to Kasey, and that VH1 edited their scenes poorly.
