New Bachelor Nick Viall Ditched Girlfriend Jen Saviano To Be On Show, Lauren Himle Dishes

By: Evan Jankens

Michigan native Lauren Himle from "The Bachelor" dropped into 97.1 The Ticket on a promotional tour Wednesday -- but little did I know that she was bringing a whole heap of drama with her.

Himle is good friends with another "Bachelor" contestant, Jen Saviano. Stay with us, here: Saviano was dating Nick Viall, who was just named the new "Bachelor." Now this is where things get really interesting. Lauren isn't a big fan of Nick -- at all -- since she says he dumped Jen to become the new "Bachelor."

"I am not a big fan of him, he dated my great friend Jen on "Bachelor in Paradise" and they did break up on the show, but it was my understanding that they were still seeing each other after the show completed." She went on to say they were "still together in a relationship."

"So Jen is one of the smartest people I know, she picks up on the bull ----. Her and I are both pretty good at picking up on guy's game (s)," Lauren said. "She knew that he was kind of manipulating her towards the end, this just happened, they were solid a week ago. It's fresh."

He was spotted at one point looking for an engagement ring.

"I think he is going to have a hard time finding someone better than Jen," Lauren said.

Who knew that these people from the show actually continued to date once the show ended?

Lauren also talked about her time on the show and what made her cry.

Here, she fires off a series of quick answers to questions about some of her favorite things -- and what she is afraid of.

Since "The Bachelor" always has these dudes who look like models, I developed a great idea for a new show that has a regular, everyday guy as the catch. Sounds like a great idea, doesn't it?
