Lauren is a 25-year-old technology salesperson from Dallas, TX. Her family, however, lives in Virginia Beach, VA.
Lauren and Arie got off to a slow start on The Bachelor, but back to back one-on-one dates in Paris, France and then Tuscany, Italy really accelerated their relationship.
Arie is, without a doubt, invested in Lauren, and he's incredibly interested in her and attracted to her. But Lauren has been hesitant to open up and be vulnerable, which makes it difficult for the pair to develop a deep emotional and mental connection.

Until viewers find out what happens next between Lauren and the man she loves, let's learn more about this blonde beauty.
