You might recognize Athena from the Warner Bros show "The Bachelor," where she emerged as the winner in 2021. Sadly, the relationship didn't last long. Despite not finding her true love on the show, she managed to capture the hearts of her fans. Athena, with her Greek heritage and upbringing in Queens, New York, was  nicknamed "ATHENA NEW YORK" during the international version of the show filmed in Greece. Surprisingly, people from all over the world tuned in to watch the show, some even going the extra mile to purchase the Alpha TV channel just to catch Athena's episodes in the USA. Interesting fact: Studies showed that only 2% of the global audience watched the American Bachelor, while a substantial 20% followed the Greek Bachelor—largely because of Athena and her humor, often compared to Lucille Ball. Fans showered her with heartfelt messages, and below you'll find a selection of these touching notes.
