Long before Donald Trump was elected as President, back when Ivanka Trump as was still VP of his company, she received an offer to join a reality show.


In an interview with People more than a decade ago, Ivanka said they had been offered the opportunity to join "tons of shows, including 'The Bachelorette.'"

She said at the time: "I’m flattered, but that in no way furthers my objective of being a great real estate developer."


If she accepted the offer, she would have had "30 handsome, eligible men vie for her love and her hand in marriage."

The offer came before the then-25-year-old married Jared Kushner, with whom she is now raising a family.


Today, Ivanka is happily married to Kushner with three children. Both herself and Kushner serve as advisors to the President.

Before that, she was a successful businesswoman in her own right and also served as Vice President in her family's real estate business.


She was a successful model and founded her eponymous fashion and lifestyle company. She closed her business down in July 2018. She said in a statement:

“After 17 months in Washington, I do not know when or if I will ever return to the business, but I do know that my focus for the foreseeable future will be the work I am doing here in Washington, so making this decision now is the only fair outcome for my team and partners.”


During her time at the Trump Organization, Ivanka oversaw development and acquisitions. She resigned in 2017 and followed her dad to the White House.

The couple met in 2005 through mutual friends and tied the knot four years later. They briefly broke up in 2008 due to objections from Kushner's parents.


One has to wonder if she regrets not accepting any of the offers. Ivanka could have been a potential TV star, considering her father's success on "The Apprentice."

Ivanka appeared in several episodes of "The Apprentice," as well as "Project Runway All Stars" and one episode of "Gossip Girl."
