The Bachelor 15 contestant Jackie Gordon is a 27-year-old artist originally from Warwick, Rhode Island but currently living in New York City. Jackie spends most of her time working with special needs kids from the Upper West Side.
Here’s a brief but fun Q&A with Jackie Gordon from ABC:
If you were stranded on a desert island what 3 things would you bring and why?
A pet companion so I’d have happy company!
Fireworks so I could have some hope of getting saved (or a cell phone)!
A gun to kill predators and hunt to survive! haha
What is your greatest achievement to date?
Moving to New York with nothing, no job, a total city virgin, and finding my way — it proved to me I can do anything and am confident & independent.
What is your favorite holiday and why?
The 4th of July! The weather is nice+hot, there are great parades and American patriotic pride! And fireworks, barbeques…people are happy.
Who is your favorite author?
Jodi Picoult…such an array of interesting storylines – total page turners with twists at the end.
Describe your idea of the ultimate date?
Chivalry! A man to pick me up at home, nice dinner and genuine, interesting intellectual conversation, followed by a Broadway show, art opening, a cultural activity to enjoy and be able to discuss together.
What’s your biggest date fear?
Rejection. That I’d go out on a limb to make myself vulnerable to be open to get hurt. It’s so painful and hard to get over, without feeling like there’s something wrong with you.
