It looks like Tia Booth is falling hard for Arie Luyendyk Jr. on Season 22 of ABC's The Bachelor! In a sneak peek for Week 5 of the competition, Tia got her first one-on-one date with the former racecar driver, and she may have jumped gun just a tad when she revealed that she's falling in love with Arie.
"Tonight I want to let him know that I'm falling in love and it scares the s--t out of me to even say that to him," she said in her confessional, but she still kept a positive mindset about dropping the "L" word. "If I'm feeling it, it will happen." Watch the full sneak peek below and keep scrolling to learn more about Tia!
She's best friends with former Bachelor star Raven Gates.
It seems like Tia had an unfair advantage because she is close with someone who already went through the application process to compete on the franchise, especially because Raven gave her some well-needed advice before Tia set off on the quest to win Arie's heart.
"Just always remember you're not as bad as what your worst critic says you are and you're not as great as what your biggest fan says you are. Find the balance, enjoy the ride," Raven wrote on Instagram.
She had one of the most memorable limo arrivals of the season.
Tia is the contestant who presented Arie with a small, toy hot dog because she hails from Weiner, AR — but it's what she said to him before entering the mansion that had everyone cringing. "Please tell me you don't already have a little wiener," she told Arie.
She's a dog mom!
Judging from her Instagram feed, the 26-year-old has a pretty bad case of baby fever because her favorite kind of photos to share are ones of her snuggling with babies. But she's channeling all of her maternal instincts into being a dog mom to an adorable pup named Marlo Quinn.
Does Tia make it to Arie's final four?
