Normally we wouldn’t remember a contestant who got eliminated during the premiere episode of The Bachelor, but Juan Pablo Galavis’s contestant Lauren Higginson is the exception to that rule. The brunette from Oklahoma City put her mark on the night by wasting no time tearing up. And then tearing up again. And then again. Ay yi yi. Too bad there’s not a First Impression Rose for most awkward encounter.


Not surprisingly, Lauren didn’t get a flower that first night and she slipped quietly out of our lives. Until now. The Okie got a new do — going from brunette to blonde — and got herself back on our radar. She posted a photo of her transformation on Instagram with the caption, “While I worked from home yesterday, Kels turned me into a blondie. It’s all about efficiency in my world! #NewHair”

Given how much he seemed to like blondes, we wonder if Juan Pabs would have given her another shot if she’d had this hair during the premiere?

We loved you as a brunette, Lauren, but totally love the new do too. Hopefully your lighter locks will stick around a bit longer than you stuck around our television screens on Monday nights!
