All of our favorites from past Bachelor and Bachelorette seasons return to paradise with the second season of Bachelor in Paradise. And, what type of fan-favorite show would it be without the always entertaining — and often crying — Ashley I. from Chris Soules' season of The Bachelor . Ashley I. (or as I preferred to call her, Lashley, because have you seen those amaze lashes?) was a fan-favorite on The Bachelor mostly because she survived the wrath of Kelsey in the Badlands on the dreaded two-on-one date. And, now that she's back in our lives, its time we finally state the obvious... new Bachelor in Paradise contestant Ashley I. and Kim Kardashian are twins. It's out there, I said it, we can finally move on with our lives. Or, we could compare all of the #twinning qualities these two beauties have... which sounds like a lot more fun.
Ashley I. definitely knows that she and Kim K. have some similarities, after all, the girl has a beauty, fashion, and lifestyle blog called Duchess Kimberly. From the lashes to the contouring to the long dark hair that will give anyone hair envy, these two might not be long lost twins like Ryan Gosling and Shawn B. (the winner of The Bachelorette and Kaitlyn's heart), but they're pretty darn close.
Welcoming Ashley I. back into our lives calls for a close investigation of just how similar she and Kim Kardashian are.
Here is Ashley I., who we've all grown to love. Check out that caption, even she knows she's got the "Kardash" look.
And, in case you live under a rock and don't know what Kim Kardashian looks like (or her face isn't permanently burned into your brain like it is mine), here is the Queen of the World*, Kim Kardashian.
I mean, you guys... They're twins! The faces, while not identical, give off the same ~aura~ and they've got those amazing cheekbones.
Lashley's lashes are perfect and never fell off or looked bad when she would cry during Chris' season.
Kim's lashes are, dare I say, on fleek.
Ashley I.'s lashes are seriously as long as my normal hair. She told Jimmy Kimmel that they were extensions, which is how they survived the Badlands. Kim's eyelashes are obviously perfect, because when you are Kim Kardashian and have a makeup artist helping you with your look, you're eyelashes can't be lame.
Here is a photo of Ashley I.'s hair...
The two women both have long, beautiful black hair that is definitely a huge part of their identity.
Ashley I.'s pucker game is almost as strong as Kim's.
Then again, you can't fully appreciate a pucker unless you're hanging in a photo booth with Kanye, right?
And, I'll Just Leave This Here...
*Not the actual Queen of the World, but I wouldn't be surprised if Kanye got her that title for her birthday or something.
