You might not remember her from the premiere of The Bachelor , but that's not because Lauren "LB" Barr wasn't memorable — it's just because there are 500 Laurens this season. LB is a fashion buyer from Oklahoma and has a relatively optimistic outlook on marriage. On her ABC bio, the 23-year-old said that marriage means, "They are your best friend and you always put them before yourself." As a reminder, Ben thinks marriage "is a total sacrifice. Marriage is about a commitment to another person and total sacrifice to fulfill that commitment." So, it sounds like these two are on the same page, which is promising. We'll have to wait to see where Ben's relationship with LB goes, but until then you might be wondering what LB was up to before The Bachelor .
At a quick glance, LB seems like many 23-year-olds. Her social media shows her as a fun, social, and family-oriented girl. She's nailed the not-so-candid smiling photo that we all strive to figure out. She's also been photographed with a professional golfer as recently as November, so who knows that that means in the realm of how long she'll last.
Here's what you need to know about LB's life before The Bachelor.
She's Hanging With Another Contestant
At first glance, this looks like a squad goals photo, but if you look closely, Lauren H. is featured on the far left. Either these two knew each other before or they became great friends on the show. I guess we'll find out.
She's Teasing Another Contestant
Guess who. Around the premiere of The Bachelor, LB teased someone in this pixilated photo. If you go to her Instagram, you'll see that Jef Holm (yes, that Jef Holm) commented on the photo asking if it was him blurred out. While my money is on Becca, his comment leads me to ask: how does LB know Jef Holm?
She's Been Getting Her Ears
Outside of teasing Bachelor contestants, LB has been earning her first pair of ears at Disney!
She Also Got Her Wings
I can't even blame her for taking a photo with this awesome street art mural.
She's Prepping For A Group Date
I think we can all agree that a boxing group date is bound to happen this season.
She's Been Photographed With Rickie Fowler
Plot twist! LB posted two photos with professional golfer Rickie Fowler on Instagram in November (and one in September). Total Sorority Move says that Fowler and his ex-girlfriend recently split, but there's no information on if these two are dating.
While the photos with Fowler are a bit confusing, we'll have to watch her journey of love with Ben to see what really happens!
