We all have seen the reality shows on TV, and have most likely imagined what it would be like to be on the show. Lauren Himle doesn’t have to imagine any longer.
Himle, a 2008 graduate of Dexter High School, was nominated by her friends, family, and coworkers to go on The Bachelor. Himle went through a long audition process where she traveled to Los Angeles for a casting weekend, and a two-week long wait to get the call that she was on the show.
It was going to be an experience like no other. Before Himle left her parents told her “to just be [herself] and to have fun with it. It would be a great adventure if nothing else.” That wasn’t all they shared either. When it came to tips on how to act on the show they said, “be nice to the other girls [and don’t do anything that would cause for a black box over any part of your body.” Eager to meet Ben Higgins and possibly fall in love Himle went and was filmed on the show.
