Today is Lindzi Cox’s birthday! We thought about sending her a cake, but instead we thought it’d be even better to tell her why we think she’s awesome. (Plus, unlike cake, compliments have zero calories!)

1. We love Lindzi because she’s fearless.

Girl made her Bachelor debut by riding in on a horse - definitely one of the more memorable entrances in the show’s history.

2. We love how chill she is.

It may not always make for the most exciting television, but we admire Lindzi for being above the drama.

3. We love her ability to see the good in everyone.

In Ben’s season of The Bachelor, Lindzi was one of the few girls who didn’t have a hate-on for Courtney Robertson. Later, on Bachelor Pad, Lindzi saw the good in Kalon McMahon despite his bad boy rep, and the two of them ended up becoming one of the cutest Bachelor Nation couples ever! Perhaps the reason Lindzi is above the drama is her ability to find the good in people.
