Everything to Know About Bachelor Front Runner (and Beauty Queen) Mari Pepin
As one of the contestants on the 25th season of The Bachelor, Mari Pepin is sure to bring a big dose of personality and charm to score Matt James's heart. A beauty queen who won the title of Miss Maryland USA in 2019, Pepin hails from Puerto Rico and is "living the American dream." We still can't get over Pepin's run-in with Katie and that very awkward shoulder tap, but keeping it classy seems to be the name of the game for the 24-year-old. Speaking about her Puerto Rican roots on her very first encounter with James, we can already see Pepin is all about authenticity.
