Raven's IG Reveals All About 'The Bachelor' Star

by Alaina Urquhart-White

A lot of people have started to root Raven Gates on Nick Viall's season of The Bachelor. Sure, everyone is still always talking about Corrine and her latest shenanigans but there is something to be said about flying slightly under the radar. Raven has an amazing sense of humor and is a business owner of a fashion boutique in Arkansas. She has a lot to offer, and I think fans are all curious to know more about the raven-haired beauty. Well, luckily her Instagram gives us a lot of insight into the real Raven.

I think we can all agree that a person's Instagram account is one of the best places to look if you want to get to know them better. Sure, a lot of people carefully curate their accounts to portray a certain image of a perfectly photogenic life, but, more often than not, there are always some very real snapshots that sneak in there and reveal everything you need to know about a person. I took the liberty of sleuthing around Raven's Instagram for you and here are the photos that, in my opinion, show us how she is in her real life when the Bachelor cameras aren't rolling.


She Loves Her Nephew

Raven clearly values her family, which is always nice to see. She posted this photo of her nephew because she was missing his ball game.


She Went To Law School Prom

Apparently that is a thing and she attended it. She even got slightly silly in the photo booth. Law school fun!


She Flew A Plane

Raise your hand if you have also flown a plane. (I haven't.)


She Is A Kid At Heart

She see-saws!


She Values Her Ladies

Raven has a group of amazingly tight friends around her. It is refreshing to see someone who values a good sisterhood. I wonder if she will be making some tight connections in the mansion too.


She Is Legitimately Princess Jasmine

Like her ABC profile says, she is meant to be Princess Jasmine. She already has the hair and the outfit. Someone get her a pet tiger.


She Was Prom Queen

Of course she was, right? This is the holy grail of #TBT pics.


Her Faith Is Important To Her

She posted a psalm from a daily-psalm app, so it looks like she takes her faith pretty seriously.


She Is Licensed To Carry

From prom queen to the shooting range. This contestant does it all.


She Has A Sense Of Humor

Raven is a good sport about how silly her current situation happens to be.


She Is Proud

She has a lot to be proud of as a business owner. She seems to have a great support system around her too. Will Raven get to the end with Nick? Even if she doesn't, it seems like she has a lot to go home to.
