Meet Lauren Himle, ‘Bachelor’ 2016 Contestant (PHOTOS)
We all thought Chris Soules was going to be the most wholesome Bachelor in franchise history — he was Prince Farming after all! — but with all the kissing and a broken engagement, it didn’t turn out that way.
Bachelor Nation, meet Lauren Himle, a 25-year-old Michigan native who might be as sweet as her blonde, girl-next-door appearance purports her to be.
Lauren H. (one of three on this season) graduated from Grand Valley State University in 2012, and now works as a teacher at Novi Woods Elementary School! How adorable is that?
Being a 20-something who joined the Bachelor franchise, she does have a side gig, of course. Lauren sells jewelry for online retailer Keep Collective, so expect to see her well-accessorized on this Season 20.
Oh, and her fashion interests will even extend onto the show, it seems. Thanks to some social media posting, we know Lauren and Ben — SPOILER ALERT! — will have a date in Mexico City that involves them walking in a Mercedes Benz Mexico Fashion Week show for designer Pineda Covalin!
They both look like pros! Seriously, with Ben’s model figure (he’s 6’4’’ after all) and Lauren’s clear comfort in high fashion, they make a great pair. Time will tell if their personalities match!
The Bachelor Season 20 premieres Monday, January 4 on ABC.
