Following the season premiere of The Bachelor on Jan. 1, a few girls hogged the spotlight (and Arie's attention), but one lady — who ended up not getting a lot of air time — caught our eye the second she stepped out of the limo. Lauren Burnham sparkled her way into our hearts with a sequin-covered silver dress — and we have a feeling she's going to make it far (we also have spoilers on who Arie picks in the end, if you just can't wait until the finale!)
So, what do we know about the blonde beauty, other than she's 25 years old? We stalked her social media to get the scoop since ABC only showed about two seconds of her limo entrance!
Lauren has at least one sibling — a little brother named Luke!
As evidenced by her Instagram, Lauren is very close to her family — particularly her brother Luke, who's in third grade. She's constantly posting photos with the elementary-schooler, and wrote next to one shot, "Monkey-ing around with my favourite [sic] little dude." Lauren also appears to have a sister named Heather.
Her job is currently listed as a tech salesperson (so, she's like legit employed).
According to LinkedIn, the Virginia Beach native has worked at phone service company Vontage as a business solutions sales executive since February 2017. She graduated from Old Dominion University in 2015 with a Bachelor of Science in Psychology, though she spent one year studying pre-medicine at Central Washington University.
She has a second degree black belt in Tae Kwon Do.
Lauren referred to it as her highest athletic achievement in her Bachelor bio. She also revealed that if she could be any fictional character, she'd be Elsa from Frozen "because I've always wanted to be a Disney princess." Who hasn't?! As for her biggest date night pet peeve, Lauren said she hates it when a guy "texts at dinner."
She's obsessed with her dog — who's insanely adorable!
The 5'5" stunner's Instagram is riddled with pics of her pooch, whom she lovingly refers to as "Lil D." Next to one particularly sweet photo, Lauren wrote, "There's nothing better than a doodle hug." Who needs Arie when you have true love like that?!
