Raven Gates is one of the front-runners on this season of the Bachelor but she was originally cast to compete for someone else.
As many of us know, Luke Pell was originally supposed to be ‘The Bachelor’ but a last-minute switch resulted in Nick Viall being cast instead. That means that some of the woman competing for Nick’s heart were originally cast for Luke.
Raven was one of those women. She was cast to be Luke’s “southern belle”. The crew allegedly kept her on because they thought she was a “cute girl”.
Raven wasn’t the only woman who was cast to find love with Luke. Word is that Liz Sandoz (Jade’s maid of honor – You know, the woman who had previously slept with Nick) was also looking to find love with Luke.
In an interview with Glamour, Raven explained why she wanted to go on ‘The Bachelor’.
“I was sad and broken-hearted and all alone in my bedroom, and I thought, I’m going to put myself out there. So, I applied. I didn’t know the Bachelor was going to be Nick, but I was excited when I found out it was going to be him. What’s funny is that my best friend is obsessed with him. When I found out it was Nick, I was like, ‘Please don’t tell me anything about him, ’cause I want it to be super organic when I meet him.’ I mean, as organic as it can be!”
Who knows, maybe one day Raven and Luke will meet and fall madly in love. That is if she doesn’t find love with Nick.
