"Windy City LIVE" celebrates Valentine's Day with seven former contestants from ABC's hit show, "The Bachelor" and "The Bachelorette."
All seven former contestants are Midwesterners, five who call Chicago their home.
We chat with Amber James, the Chicago bartender who tried her luck at love, not once, but twice, on "The Bachelor." She also appeared on Season 2 of "Bachelor in Paradise." Most recently, she was eliminated from this season of "The Bachelor," while vying for the love of Indiana native, Ben Higgins. James is still looking for love in Chicago.
Chicago fertility nurse and winner of "The Bachelor" Season 19, Whitney Bischoff, chats about her new found love in the city. Nashville native, Carly Waddell, who famously sang for bachelor Chris Soules, has become close friends with Whitney Bischoff. With Whitney's help, Carly is going to go through the egg freezing process, hoping to have children some day in the future.
Bischoff tells us about OVA: Egg Freezing Specialty Center that will be opening this summer downtown. It was first announced in front of millions of viewers during "The Bachelor" Premiere Live After-Show in January. Ova is a true game changer in the world of fertility. This revolutionizing, first-of-its-kind program will officially launch this summer and make egg freezing more accessible and affordable to women of all ages. Ova's brand new, state-of-the-art downtown Chicago center will offer truly customized care, catering to women of every background and their various reasons for wanting to preserve their fertility. The groundbreaking program is the brainchild of aParent IVF in Highland Park; with its world-renowned, industry-leading team, aParent IVF has already helped thousands of patients become parents.
