Tonight, after an excruciating two-week hiatus, Bachelor Nation returns. Back to its normal Monday night schedule, "The Bachelor" will introduce Matt James and his 32 lady friends as they look for love at the Nemacolin Woodlands Resort in Pennsylvania (Bachelor Mansion is still out of commission, folks).
James’ would-be lovers were revealed last month, and some already caught our eye for their, shall we say, interesting professions. Victoria says she’s a Queen as her literal occupation; Alicia is a professional ballerina, which will never not sound fake; and Kit is a "socialite"...K. Yes, yes, we’re trying not to judge based on a one-paragraph blurb, but we’re also going to fully enjoy comedian Jared Freid’s commentary.
But even so, these aren’t the women we’re interested in -- I, for one, will be paying attention to Kristin Hopkins, a 27-year-old attorney from Virginia Beach whose bio says is “truly wifey material.” Case in point? This tweet, which went viral over the weekend for describing an event involving Hopkins from years before.
Sydney Battle, a NYC/LA-based writer and performer, describes how, years ago, a girl from her college sorority -- a quick peek at her website reveals she went to College of William & Mary in Williamsburg, Va., which checks out given Hopkins' bio -- who she knows is an upcoming "Bachelor" contestant accompanied her and a potential fling (on his part, at least) on the subway "all the way in the wrong direction" to avoid Battle unknowingly getting into a potentially harmful situation.
Hopkins ID’d herself, anyway, but Battle revealed her identity in a few follow-up tweets and added some more detail of the event:
It looks as if Hopkins has no time for adulterers and all the time for supporting her fellow women, and paired with her described "fiercely loyal, intelligent...and party-starter" personality, she should make for a spitfire of a woman looking for love.
Consider Kristin Hopkins at the top of our "Bachelor" brackets.
