Not only did Lauren Burnham follow her fiancé Arie Luyendyk Jr. across the country to Arizona — it now looks like the blonde beauty is also following in his real estate footsteps. Just one month after getting engaged live on The Bachelor: After the Final Rose special, Lauren shared the exciting job update on Instagram.
“Showing houses and taking names,” she captioned the selfie, hinting that she was working an open house. And while she was all smiles in the photo, Bachelor Nation is a little concerned Lauren is slowing morphing into a female Arie. “She’s literally tying every part of herself to Arie, which is SO dangerous. I honestly worry about her. I know a lot of people here don’t like her but I don’t think she’s a terrible person, I just think she’s made some terrible choices as of late,” one user commented on reddit.
Another agreed, adding, “Real estate has been her plan since they got back together. She quit her job and moved in with her parents after the show. I feel for her a little bit. She seems lost.”
Fans of the reality dating competition will remember how Arie blindsided Becca Kufrin (and viewers) when he decided to call off his engagement and reconnect with Lauren — whose personality and communication skills were compared to vanilla ice cream. At the time of filming, Lauren was described as a “tech salesperson” in her cast bio. How quickly things change…
However, despite the haters, the couple seems happier than ever and are busy planning their upcoming summer wedding. “They’d love to get married on TV because it would be a continuation of their love story,” an insider told Life & Style exclusively. “They want viewers to be able to see the next chapter of their journey.” Lauren’s mom Pamela is also excited about the nuptials and ABC potentially picking up the tab. “That would be wonderful!” she said. “My husband’s probably going to jump up and down at that thought!”
