In Season 25 of ‘The Bachelor’, women from various backgrounds are vying for Matt James’ heart. A diverse cast of suitresses is eager to make the bachelor their future husband and the 27-year-old attorney from Virginia, Kristin Hopkins is one of them. While you may know her as the ever-charismatic suitress on James' show, Hopkins had gained recognition much before the premiere for helping a girl escape a creepy stalker in the subway. 

On January 3, a Twitter user posted a thread of tweets sharing a rather scary incident she was subjected to once. She wrote her tweet, “A girl i knew in college is gonna be on the bachelor and one time after an alumni event she took a subway w/ me & a man all the way in the wrong direction bc he was trying to cheat on his wife w/ me and i was too dull to notice. so anyways i think she should win.” She revealed in the tweet that it was Hopkins and wrote, "and honestly the power of her charisma has always terrified me!!"

According to Hopkins' bio on ABC, she is a "very smart and successful attorney who says that while she dreams of finding her perfect match, her busy career and professional ambitions haven't left her with too much spare time to date." It also describes her as "truly wifey material" who is fiercely loyal and intelligent". Apparently, she believes she gets the party started and is looking for a man who "isn't afraid of being openly affectionate" as personal space goes out of the window for her. Will James be her cheerleader for a lifetime? Well, only time could give us that answer. 



 

 

However, it seems like Hopkins enjoys life nonetheless. She is "always up for karaoke and loves to belt out a classic Disney song" and the oral hygiene freak carries an electric toothbrush with her while traveling and even "extra batteries just in case." Although she loves to be the life of any party, she simply doesn't share her food with anyone "unless both parties have previously agreed upon it". She has over 7,000 followers on Instagram. 

'The Bachelor' Season 25 premieres on Mondays at 8 pm ET on ABC.
