It is a small world! When Bachelor Nation’s Renée Oteri and  Desiree Hartsock met up to throw Renée’s hubby a surprise birthday party at a Seattle restaurant, the ladies got a surprise of their own — Sharleen Joynt! The twist? Shar didn’t crash the party on purpose; rather, the New Yorker by coincidence happened to stroll into the restaurant where the b-day was taking place. What are the odds?


The twist of fate gained us a super cute photo op of the three beauties, which Renee posted to her Instagram with the caption “out for my husbands ☆SURPRISE PARTY☆ + we get a little surprise of our own! A last-minute, impromptu trip to Seattle for@sharleenjoynt takes her to the very same restaurant at the very time time. Such a small, small world!”

What’s Shar doing in Renee and Des’s neck of the woods anyway? Judging from her Instagram, she and a couple friends decided to take a spontaneous tour of the west coast. She started in L.A. a week ago, where she visited her sisters and then caught up with Sarah Herron and Bachelor producer Elan Gale. Then she headed to Seattle where she ran into her fellow Bachelor Nationers and posed for one of our favorite Shar photos of all time.

Looks like the ladies had a blast! We wonder if Shar will call ahead next time and let them know she’s coming? Nah — it’s more fun to leave it to fate.

Can you believe the coincidence? Comment away.
