Pappas, of Greek heritage, who is the middle of three children, was born in Marietta, Georgia, and shortly thereafter moved to Kentucky with her mother and siblings. When she was twelve years old, her mother died of cancer and she relocated with her brother, Thomas, and sister, Chrissy, to Newnan, Georgia, to live with her father.

DeAnna Pappas, is a brunette, brown-eyed woman who became an immediate fan favorite and was the final woman remaining on the finale of The Bachelor in November 2007. She found out she was tapped to star as the next "Bachelorette" on an episode of Ellen that aired in January of 2008. DeAnna demonstrated her assertiveness and independent nature during The Bachelor, setting her apart from the other women.

She is an interesting combination of Greek ancestry on her father's side and a mix of many ethnicities including Native American on her mother's. Her mother's ultimately fatal battle with cancer meant that DeAnna was raised primarily by her aunt and grandmother, and when her mother died 'DeAnna was 12' she moved to Georgia to live with her father. DeAnna has done modeling and acting since she was 18 years old. She started off in local runway shows. This launched her into participating in an ad for Atlanta Home Magazine, an article in Jezebel Magazine, a print ad for Kellog's cereal, and a commercial for AT&T.

DeAnna has appeared on such shows as EXTRA, The Ellen Degeneres Show, Jimmy Kimmel, Good Morning America, Hollywood 411, TV Guide Channel, and many more.
