The Bachelor 2017 doesn't premiere until January, but we're learning more about the prospective women competing for the affections of Nick Viall this season.
The Bachelor spoiler guru Reality Steve has revealed two more names for Nick's season, which has only just started filming. The first of the ladies has an interesting fact in common with Nick.Source: YouTube
First is 25-year-old Whitney Fransway, a model living in Los Angeles, CA, who happens to work for the same agency Nick once did. Whitney, who is originally from Minnesota, worked as a Wilhelmina model just like Nick. Needless to say, she's a stunner, although I wonder if she was cast out of a vague resemblance to Jen Saviano, Nick's girlfriend on Bachelor In Paradise. Granted, they don't appear to have much in common beyond being two gorgeous brunettes, but I'd have to think the casting agents are looking to bring Nick's past back to bear on him in some fashion this season.
The other new addition leaked from the cast is 30-year-old Lauren Hussey, an on-site advocate at a women's shelter in Naples, Florida. According to her LinkedIn profile, prior to working at The Shelter for Abused Women & Children, she worked at a series of law offices, not unlike Nick's former Bachelorette flame, Andi Dorfman. While not a full-on lawyer like Andi, Lauren has been a legal extern, a legal intern, and a legal assistant over the course of the past decade. So, in addition to being a bit closer to Nick's age than the other girls we've met so far (Nick is 35, by the way), she also seems to be a woman of substance, dedicating her career to helping women and children, as evidenced by her current profession, and her cases she's worked on centered on crimes against children.
Last, but not least, are the four women previously leaked, twentysomethings Lacey Mark, Leila Pari, Kristina Schulman, and Elizabeth Whitelaw. For more details, you can check out my post here.
