Could we see the Bachelor franchise return to Louisiana for hometown visits when Arie Luyendyk Jr. looks for love next season?

Hold onto your roses because a new season of The Bachelor premiers on January 1 on ABC at 7 p.m. Arie Luyendyk Jr., who previously competed for love, will be returning to turn the tables and find love among 29 women. Of those women is a beauty from New Roads, Louisiana.

Lauren J is one of many Laurens who will be vying for Arie's roses.

ABC has revealed the list of women on the 22nd edition of The Bachelor. Our home-state favorite, Lauren J, is 33 years old and is a recent Masters Graduate. She's also one of four women named Lauren competing this year, three of which are blonde. To take it a step further, Lauren J isn't the only one from the Ark-La-Tex. Lauren S is from Dallas, Texas and Tia is from Weiner, Arkansas.

Should Lauren J make it to the hometown dates, she will bring Arie back to Louisiana. Not too long ago we saw Shreveport's own Becca Tilley bring then-Bachelor Chris Soules back to our neck of the woods for their hometown visit. Chris eventually chose another contestant, Whitney, to give his final rose to.
