We didn’t get to see a lot of Kylie Lewis on The Bachelor 2014, even though her turn on the show will last in our minds for quite some time. But it seems that the Rockford, Illinois gal has been attached to the show by the thorns for longer than we could have imagined!

On January 16 — 10 days after getting cut by Juan Pablo Galavis — Kylie posted a throwback picture of herself looking way different than the orange-haired, spangly pink dress-clad gal we met on the Season 18 premiere. One of the biggest differences to her appearance? The accessories she’s sporting: Season 8 Bachelorette hotties Jef Holm and Arie Luyendyk, Jr.!

Kylie posted the adorable double shot of herself with the winner and his runner-up BFF near what looks like the Cloud Gate, Chicago’s famous mirrored bean in Millenium Park. “#tbt to hanging out with these gentleman last year :) @jefholm @ariejr,” she captioned the shot.

We can’t help but notice she looks more into the Jef side of the shot, but we’d be pretty stoked to stand near either of Emily Maynard’s exes. How did Kylie end up hanging with these two gentlemen, and then end up on the show a year later? We’re currently hatching a theory that anyone touched by a Bachelor Nation fella automatically makes it to the top of the casting charts. With that in mind, we’ve got some stalking to do. See ya!
