These days, Dr. Travis Stork is best known as the host of The Doctors, the daytime talk show that features Stork and other medical professionals giving expert advice and answering audience questions. However, 10 years ago, Stork was looking for love in the City of Light as the star of The Bachelor: Paris.

Stork opens up about the reality dating show for the first time on Thursday's episode of The Doctors, revealing how he got cast on the popular ABC program.

“I went to dinner with my ER colleagues and a person came up to me from The Bachelor and hung out with our group of ER friends and was buying beverages,” the 43-year-old emergency physician recalls. “The next thing you know, I’m literally in Paris as The Bachelor.”


Stork gave schoolteacher Sarah Stone the final rose during his Bachelor season, though he did not propose and the couple announced their relationship was over shortly after the finale aired. In June 2012, he married pediatrician Charlotte Brown, the two later divorced in the spring of 2015

However, Stork’s time on The Bachelor came with unforeseen recognition when he returned to work stateside.

“What I didn’t expect was coming back and then feeling like I had to justify all the hard work I had put in,” he says. “I worked really hard in med school and residency. My record speaks for itself.”
