A former contestant on “The Bachelorette” knows firsthand the pain of not getting a rose, but he’s now helping others heal in Glendale.

Robert Graham was vying for Desiree’s heart on Season 9 of the hit show and later made waves on “Bachelor in Paradise.”

Nowadays you can find Graham at Revive Wellness Center in Glendale, about four miles from where he grew up.

“Arizona will always be my home,” he said. “I always want to be able to help people here and tell as many people as I can about what we’re doing here.”

Graham and his father, Dr. Robert Graham, just integrated one of their chiropractic clinics into a medical facility.  It offers a host of services and pain relief treatments designed to help patients avoid surgery, from massage therapy and chiropractic care, to innovative stem cell therapy.

“Someone says maybe you need a knee replacement or so forth,” said Dr. Graham.“The stem cells will adhere to the cartilage and just start making new cartilage.”

Still, the “Bachelorette” ties run deep. As a longtime friend of current Bachelorette JoJo Fletcher, well before her days on “The Bachelor,” Graham has this advice for those pining for her heart.

“She tells it how it is and she can see through the fakeness so I’d say be yourself, be real, and if she vibes with you, she vibes with you,” Graham said. “If not, that’s it, that’s the point of the show.”
