Who is Kat Hurd from The Bachelor 2014?

There’s one name on everyone’s mind after The Bachelor this week: Kat Hurd. She’s 29, attended the University of Iowa and graduated with dual degrees in Athletic Training and Dance. Most recently, she became a Phoenix Suns dance team member, and went straight to being a Bachelor contestant from there.

On the show she made a splash with a red dress and plea for Salsa lessons. Bachelor Juan Pablo loves to dance, and it’s clear from the start that Kat Hurd made quite an impression on him.

But he wasn’t the only one.

Jimmy Fallon used Kat as a subject for some recent monologue material, as her name sounds suspiciously like something a cat leaves in a litterbox, when you stop and think about it for more than a few seconds. He rattled off a bunch of jokes at her expense during his monologue (seen below), but Kat responded on Twitter goodnaturedly:

“Does this mean I get a litter box in my dressing room when I come on the show?! I prefer the clumping kind… Easier to scoop.”

An NBA dancer AND funny? Juan Pablo should have his mind made up already.
