Ariel Frenkel Parents: Feliks And Marina Frenkel! Age, Job

You might have heard a few The Bachelor contestants talking about their parents’ disapproval of the show, but have you ever heard a contestant’s parents asking their daughter not to participate in the show because of “orgies” in it? Yes! Ariel Frenkel’s dad believed that “they’ll force you [contestants] to get naked” to partake in sexual group activities.

So, who are Ariel Frenkel’s parents? Keep reading to find out.

Who Are Bachelor’s Ariel Frenkel Parents?

Ariel Frenkel was born to her parents, Feliks and Marina Frenkel. They are kind, innocent, and the “window into [her] life.” Infact, thanks to Feliks’ innocence, he thought that The Bachelor was a show where people had “orgies.”

“My dad is like, ‘Ariel, you can’t do the show. I know what they do there. He’s like, ‘orgies,’” the star explained. “And I was like, ‘I don’t think you’ve been watching The Bachelor. I think that’s like Game of Thrones.” But her dad insisted that it was The Bachelor where “you’ll walk into a room and they’ll force you to get naked.”

Unfortunately for him, there was indeed a scene when Zach and Ariel have a spa date in Estonia, and they stumble upon two completely naked strangers in the sauna. “Oh, my God. I can’t wait for my parents to see this! Yay,” Ariel added.

Overall, Ariel shared that she comes from a community that is “so loving, so fun, so funny.” And it’s not just her parents, brother, and his wife. “It’s the entire Ukrainian Jewish immigration in New York. So I have so much love in my life from my family, my friends, things like that but I miss having a love outside of that,” she explained.

Meet Feliks Frenkel, Ariel Frenkel Father

Feliks Frenkel is Ariel Frenkel’s father who spoke of “orgy” in The Bachelor series. He grew up in Kyiv, Ukraine, and immigrated to the US when he was an adult.

His parents first came to America in 1972 for about 3 ½ months “to pick up the inheritance of the lost Russian cousin.” Then, his father realized that Feliks could have a better career as a civil engineer in America and immigrated to the country within a few years.

As per Feliks, his parents married in 1946 when his father was in the army (abused by high-ranking officers). Later, his dad went on to work for a cab company.

  • What Is Feliks Frenkel Ethnicity?

  • Feliks Frenkel Job

Feliks Frenkel is a Private Investor, Community Leader, and Philanthropist. He was the chairperson of the board of COJECO, a member of UJA-Federation’s Board of Directors, and an Executive Committee Member.

Celebrated for his philanthropy, Feliks was even honored in 2014 by the UJA Federation for his community leadership.

But this isn’t the life Feliks dreamed of. Initially, he wanted to become a zoologist. He had even planned to travel to the White Sea to study Walrus. But his mother said, “No Jewish child will do something like that.” Instead, his parents forced him to become a civil engineer.

Now, that he recalls, his career in Russia would have been better because just at the age of 18 he was making two salaries. One, as a commodities trader, and two, creating models out of Plexiglas.

So, after he immigrated to America, Feliks was offered to become an Assistant Baker in Philadelphia. Obviously, he rejected it. Rather, he went on to earn $2 a week moving garbage cans and cleaning, whilst looking for a college. Finally, he went to join the Wharton School Of Business and joined the trading stock business.

Now, Feliks’s a generous millionaire. Back in March 2015, he even donated a stunning $100,000 donation to the National Yiddish Theatre Folksbiene, a New York cultural group that presents plays, concerts, and other events.
