‘Bachelor’ Shocker: Ben Higgins Rumored Fave Lauren Bushnell Has a Past

No one is perfect — and that includes Bachelor and Bachelorette contestants.

Just this week, we were telling you about Ben Higgins’s contestant Maegan Miller and her DUI last year. And now we have another Season 20 gal to add to the list but this one’s shocking: Lauren Bushnell!

Right now, you’ve only seen photos and a brief ABC-approved bio of the 25-year-old Cali blonde, but if you’ve been reading up on your spoilers — and we won’t give too much away! — Lauren is one to watch.

However, judging by Riverside County Sheriff's Department police records (via Reality Steve), there’s more to sweet-looking flight attendant than meets the eye.

Lauren was arrested last April for public intoxication, which admittedly is not the most horrifying offense. After all, most 20-somethings in the Los Angeles area are bound to be hitting the town a lot — maybe it went too far one night. No harm, no foul!

The only issue is Ben himself, who is proving to rival Sean Lowe in the wholesome department. As a faith-focused, Midwestern family guy, we’re not sure how our hunky Bachelor will feel when he finds out about Lauren’s partying past — and trust, he probably will. Reality Steve teases it will come up later in the season.

Then again, Ben also seems quite forgiving and understanding. Here’s hoping it’s the non-issue the majority of us find it to be!
