Golden girl. A one-time College Park resident and 1985 graduate of the University of Maryland will be ABC’s first Golden Bachelorette when the series debuts this fall.

Rockville resident Joan Vassos, 61, was a contestant on the premiere season of The Golden Bachelor, which featured a 72-year-old bachelor, who dated 20 women in their 60s and 70s last fall before proposing to, quickly marrying, and then filing for divorce from the winning contestant.

Vassos, a widow with four adult children and two grandchildren, left the show in Week 3, saying she had to return home to tend to family medical emergency.

ABC declined to make Vassos available for an interview with College Park Here & Now.

Vassos, who works as an administrator at Landon School in Bethesda, told CNN she would not move away from Maryland—at least full-time—if she were to meet her second husband on the show.
