Lauren Bushnell’s Past Revealed: Not The Girl Next Door She Appears

Lauren Bushnell of The Bachelor 2016 seems like a really sweet girl and a girl next door. Now, an insider is sharing some about Lauren and reveals that she might not be exactly what she seems like on the show. In Touch Weekly shared that a source is now speaking out about Lauren Bushnell, and says she isn’t totally innocent. Lauren has a bit of a past that she hasn’t talked about yet on the show. The thing is it only has to do with enjoying drinking and partying. Girls on the show in the past have hidden a lot bigger secrets, like the fact that Jade Roper had posed for Playboy in her past.

Here is what the source had to say about Lauren Bushnell, who seems to be a sweet innocent flight attendant.

“Lauren isn’t the girl Ben thinks she is. She’s really been playing up the wholesome girl-next-door thing on the show, but Lauren has things in her past that she’s not proud of, and she’s keeping it from Ben.”

This isn’t the only insider speaking out about Lauren Bushnell. Someone that is close to her ex-boyfriend, Sean Evans, had a bit to share about her, as well. This source said that Lauren loves to drink, and has done some hard partying in her past. On the show, Lauren Bushnell does drink and has never tried to act like this is something she doesn’t enjoy. Drinking is a very big part of this reality show. Lauren doesn’t shy away from it.

Bushnell has even been arrested before, which she has not mentioned on the show. She was picked up for public intoxication at the Stagecoach Country Music Festival in Indio, California, about a year ago, in April of 2015. This seems to be the only arrest on her record. No word on exactly what Lauren was doing when she got picked up.

Lauren Bushnell actually split with her ex-boyfriend, Sean, just five months before she joined the show. The source shared that they would drink a lot.

“When Lauren was with Sean, she would lay by the pool every day taking shots and downing mixed drinks. Then she’d continue to drink all night. It was embarrassing to be around her when she was drunk because she’d turn into a mess. She’d have these drunken crying fits in public places — she’s way too emotional.”

Us Magazine shared that Lauren Bushnell has been having a good time since the show is done filming. Lauren was recently spotted in Hawaii and rocking a bikini. Lauren was seen out on a paddle board having a good time in the water. She was wearing a tiny floral bikini and a hat. Of course, if Lauren wins the show, she can’t be seen with Ben just yet, so she didn’t have a man by her side at all. Lauren seemed to just be having a fun and relaxing trip before the world finds out if she wins or not.

Right now, Lauren Bushnell is in the final two, along with JoJo Fletcher. There are only two weeks of new episodes left, and then Ben will be deciding if Lauren is the one that he wants to propose to in the end. So far, it is obvious that these two have great chemistry and she could be the winner.
