What Is Lacey Doing Now? The 'Bachelor In Paradise' Contestant Exited The Show Early

When it comes to Bachelor and Bachelorette contestants, some last longer on the shows than others. Lacey was eliminated during week two of Nick Viall's season of The Bachelor, and had a lot to say to Nick during the show's Women Tell All special that aired back in March. Then, on Monday night's premiere of Bachelor in Paradise, Lacey exited the show after hearing that her grandfather had died. So what's Lacey doing now?

Once the Bachelor in Paradise premiere aired, Lacey shared a photo of herself and her late grandfather on Instagram. She wrote in the caption:

A hard moment to rewatch...everyone who's close to me knows how much my family and I adored my grandfather. He was literally the most interesting man in the world. I'm lucky to have the best friends and family in the world. RIP Captain Bernard P. Mark

It's sad news for Lacey and her family and her tribute clearly shows how much he meant to her.

Other than spending time on the current season of Bachelor in Paradise, the 25-year-old digital marketing manager is also still living in the Big Apple, according to her Instagram bio. She has posted many photos of herself hanging out with friends and family.

Back in June, Lacey took to Instagram to share a photo of herself in a swimsuit with a caption in which she expressed excitement that she was headed to Mexico to film with the rest of the BiP cast. And just under a week ago, she shared another photo of herself standing opposite Chris Harrison in a still that appears to have been taken from her time on the show.

Of course, her appearance on the show shouldn't really come as much of a surprise. The cast of the upcoming season was announced earlier this summer. Still, BiP is all about former contestants finding love despite not receiving the final rose during their respective seasons, and not only did Lacey not even make it halfway through her season, but she also unfortunately only got to go on one group date with Nick during her time on the show. Unfortunately, her short stint on BiP also wasn't enough time to allow her to find the love this time around.

Even though Lacey exited Bachelor in Paradise early, there's always a chance she could return — either later in the season or next season.
