While pasta is cooking, preheat a charcoal or gas grill on medium-high heat. Brush corn with olive oil and grill for 5 to 8 minutes, turning occasionally until charred. Remove from heat. When cool enough to handle, cut kernels off the cob.
Toss pasta with charred corn, broccoli, shredded carrot, shredded Cheddar cheese, celery, green onions, and ranch dressing until well combined. Refrigerate for 2 hours or overnight.
Just before serving, stir in crisp-cooked bacon. Serve immediately.
