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?

    Sorry, not buying Nick and Jen were a couple. Maybe in HER mind. I follow both of them on social media, when did they ever get together after taping the show?? Seems like he was on the west coast and she was on the east coast. I can understand her wanting more, but IMO, that never happened.

    I wonder how many times they actually dated after the show? Watching the show, I couldn’t see any real connection between them. I’m sure they liked each other; they both seem like great people. But I didn’t see much more.

    What an airhead! She said BIP was shot in Sausalito, which is in CA. The show was shot in Sayulita, Riviera Nayarit, Mexico. Huge difference.

    I agree they weren’t a serious couple. And the producers knowing that chose him to be the next bachelor. I think a lot of these stories are started by those who are unhappy he was selected. I find him smart and entertaining. I think these shows need more humor and I just know Nick will deliver! Hoping all of you on the fence will reconsider and give Nick a chance to find love.
