'The Bachelor' 2023: Where is Madison Johnson now? Marketing consultant onto 'next adventure' after exit
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: Thirty women began Zach Shallcross' 'Bachelor' season, but after the first rose ceremony, the field of eligible suitors is already starting to dwindle. Of course, the season's first departure occurred prior to that. Madison Johnson departed Night 1 early after repeated efforts to spend time with Zach after the Bachelor informed her he didn't sense a connection. Madison's whereabouts have piqued the interest of fans, and we now have an update.
On Night 1 of 'The Bachelor' 2023, one contestant did not attend the rose ceremony. Madison desperately wanted to kiss Zach, and in her attempts, she distracted him from many other conversations, annoying her fellow cast mates. When the kiss occurred, it was not a nice experience for either side, and she looked to spend most of the night sobbing over it. Madison interrupted the Bachelor one final time as he was getting ready for the rose ceremony with Jesse Palmer, and Zach decided to send her home right then and there.
Where is Madison Johnson now?
In a November Instagram post, the Fargo-based company owner said she's looking for her "next adventure," implying that she's been away from 'The Bachelor' for some time. That next adventure might involve expanding her firm, MJM Consulting, which provides marketing services to medical aesthetic customers — Madison describes herself as a "Botox loving, laser treatment fan-girl" in her professional description.
Madison's two sisters will undoubtedly join her in any plans she chooses for the future. Madison labels herself as a "sister-mom" in her social profiles, a moniker she elaborated on in a 2020 TikTok. "Our parents both fell victim to substance abuse," Madison explained, adding that as a result, she sought custody of her younger sister. "I felt that I was finally at a place where I could emotionally and financially support her, the way that she needed."

Madison stated in a more recent TikTok that her sister was on her way to college, implying that it was the proper time for Madison to attempt something new, such as seeking love on national television. "Madison has worked extremely hard to get to such a great place in life and says she is more than ready to find someone to share it with," according to her Bachelor bio.
That person isn't Zach, it appears, but this may not be the last time Madison appears on TV - at least, not if she gets her adolescent dream job. Madison expressed her desire to host her own talk show after being voted Miss Teen North Dakota International in 2014. "[Her] ultimate goal is being the next Oprah," she says.
