‘Bachelor’ 2016 Fave Lauren Bushnell Snapped With Ring on THAT Finger! (PHOTO)
Before you get on us, don’t worry — that headline was NOT a spoiler. Just hear us out…
Particularly vigilant Bachelor Nation-ers were buzzing this week when a photo surfaced on social media, appearing to show Bachelor 2016 fan (and Ben Higgins) favorite Lauren Bushnell with an engagement ring.
Well, it wasn’t clear it was an engagement ring — or even a diamond! — per say, but definitely a suspicious-looking ring on that finger, nonetheless.
The photo in question was posted by a friend, and it had many wondering if the flight attendant might have been Ben’s final pick and now-fiancé and she messed up by keeping the ring on in public.
However, though this photo was shared a few times in the last couple of months as #TBTs, the original was actually taken in early September — before filming on Season 20 even began!
So to recap, the Indiana hunk didn’t follow in the footsteps of his predecessor, Kaitlyn Bristowe, and accidentally spoil his season via social media. That’s not to say Lauren didn’t get Ben’s final rose and a whopping Neil Lane sparkler — we’ll just have to wait and see.
Or, if you’re not spoiler-averse, head on over here to find out who the 26-year-old did choose, as well as if they’re still together!
The Bachelor airs Monday nights at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
