There’s only been one episode of The Bachelor so far, and already the show is beginning to get dramatic! With competition, jealousy, desperation, and desire floating in the atmosphere, fans are curious to learn more about each of the contestants. While each girl is doing her best to impress Nick Viall, fans of the show are seeing through their television appearances and want to know what they’re really like outside of the show.

Thanks to social media, you can easily keep up to date with the contestants who regularly post on their profiles! You can find out which contestants are really family oriented, which ones like to party, and which ones are undeniable wifey-material. Raven on The Bachelor’ Instagram pics tell a lot about the young contestant. We’ve got some fun photos to share from Raven from The Bachelor’s Instagram, plus some fun facts!

First Impressions are Key!

One adorable contestant who made a funny first impression with Nick is 25-year-old, Raven Gates. She’s more than a decade younger than Nick (36) yet he believed she was worth passing the first rose ceremony. Reality Steve reported that the couple enjoyed a fun family hangout last October, and they seemed to have a great time. Oh, and he loves her sweet southern accent, of course!


She has Strong Family Relationships

Like Nick, the fashion boutique owner is also close with her family. Raven’s father is a huge inspiration to her and on one Father’s Day, she posted on Instagram, “My dad and I share the same intellect, personality, and humor. & I’m proud of that! He’s been a dad to many of my friends & a great role model of Christ. I love my dad!” During her interview for the show, she said she spends most of her time running her business and hanging out with her family, but she’s lonely and ready to find love.
