Meet Lauren Bushnell, ‘Bachelor’ 2016 Contestant (PHOTOS)


Sometimes it feels a little bit like the Bachelor contestant careers are something off a Barbie box, from dog lover to free spirit to news reporter (we even have one for Season 20!). So why wouldn’t Ben Higgins also have a flight attendant on his Bachelor 2016?

That’s where one of the three Laurens of this coming season, Lauren Bushnell, brings to the table as an attendant for Alaska Airlines. But there’s more to this blondie than meets the eye. For example, she might currently live in L.A. like many a Bachelor Nation-er, but she actually hails from Portland, Oregon!


Not only that, but Lauren B. has her business degree from Whitworth University. Oh, and did we mention the 25-year-old is good friends with fellow Oregon native Anna Von Staehle? She’s the model Josh Murray dated for a little bit recently, only to break up a couple months later.

We’re reserving our judgment on Lauren’s qualifications for our boy Ben until the show comes back early next year, but safe to say it’s a little worrisome that her career is so transient. Then again, the Bachelor has made it clear he’s not tied down to any specific place, so maybe they could travel the world together? They’re still young!

For now, keep your eye on Lauren’s (currently deactivated) Instagram for when it will likely go back live closer to the January premiere.


The Bachelor Season 20 premieres Monday, January 4 on ABC.
