Even though Ben Higgins' season may have just begun, it's already obvious that Bachelor contestant Jubilee Sharpe is forging a special connection with our leading man, and I love her already. From the moment she appeared on the scene, talking about her experiences in the military, it was clear that not only is she beautiful, but she also has one of the strongest personalities on the show this year. Something else I noticed about her: She has a lot of tattoos. You can see some of her ink on the show, but it's hard to make out exactly what the pictures and words are just from what we see on The Bachelor. So what are Jubilee's tattoos?
Unfortunately, there isn't a list of all of them out there, but it does seem like there are a lot. In her Twitter bio from 2011, Jubilee says she has eight tattoos, but it does sound like the number has grown since then because OK! Here Is The Situation says she has 13, but the site doesn't mention its source for the info. So it's safe to say that she's got plenty, and hopefully, she'll show them off at some point this season. Until then, a little social media investigating will have to do!
One of Jubilee's most prominent tattoos is the text on her collarbone, and fortunately, she's already explained that one. According to what the 24-year-old told a fan on Twitter, it says, "the past is practice," and in another tweet, she hinted that the importance of that sentence to her will come into play on The Bachelor in the weeks to come. Now I'm dying to know what she means by that!
Her Instagram also reveals a few more of her tattoos. In these photos, it looks like she's got one on her wrist, thigh, and stomach, even though it's unclear what they are:
As someone who's deathly afraid of needles but wants a tattoo desperately, I admire people who are brave enough to get one, let alone eight or more! As if her military background wasn't enough, this just proves that Jubilee is a strong woman, and I hope we get to find out more about her ink as the season progresses, because I am fascinated. Maybe she can convince nice guy Ben to get a rose tattooed on his butt cheek or something? Now there is a one-on-one date that the world needs to see. Chris Harrison, get on it!
