Bachelor 2014 Spoilers: This Contestant Was Engaged — VERY Recently!
By now, 17 seasons of The Bachelor under our belts, we all know the point of the show: To get engaged. Right? Though jokes may be made about the viability of relationships formed on the show, it seems like a pretty clear contest to grab the guy, rep the ring, and live happily ever after.
A big challenge to getting there? Showing that you’re there for the “right reasons” and that you’re ready for marriage. One contestant on Juan Pablo Galavis’s Season 18might have a little trouble doing one of those.
Lauren met fiancé Blake DuPlant while the pair was appearing on Minute to Win It, and they hit it off. Later, they both appeared on The Price is Right and Let’s Make a Deal. While Blake did super well on the shows, the only thing Lauren won was him. On February 7, 2012, Blake proposed to Lauren at Runyon Canyon in L.A. Naturally, the camera-ready couple got engaged in front of a live audience — their friends.
But while we’re not sure what happened in the interim, the pair was set to be married on July 9, 2013. Obviously, something came up and single Austin, Texas resident Lauren is set to compete on The Bachelor for the arc which just began filming last week.
Think Lauren will win on her fourth “game” show, and end up walking down the aisle for real this time? Is she here for the “right reasons”? Sound off in the comments.
