Are you watching the current season of The Bachelor? It sounds like Missoulians have someone to root for as one of the 2022 contestants is a graduate of the University of Montana.

Elizabeth Corrigan is one of 30 bachelorettes competing for the attention of bachelor Clayton Echard in season 26, which debuted on January 3rd. According to her Linkedin, Elizabeth graduated from the U of M in 2013 with degrees in psychology and French. For her The Bachelor Biography, she is listed as a Real Estate Advisor and has worked in banking and real estate in Denver since leaving Missoula.

Based on her Instagram posts, Elizabeth is an advocate for mental illness awareness and is currently using her platform to raise 10K to the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI.) On Elizabeth's official page for ABC her "Fun Facts" are listed as:

Fun Facts:
• Elizabeth speaks a dozen languages.
• Elizabeth says petting cute dogs makes her happy.
• Tattoos are not Elizabeth's thing.

A DOZEN languages? That's impressive on its own! No spoilers here but a friend of a friend of a friend says that if you're a fan of Elizabeth you won't want to miss episode 3, which airs on Monday, January 24th.

I don't watch but judging by fan comments on social media, apparently Elizabeth got into a fight with "season bully" Shanae and fans are concerned at how Bachelor Clayton will respond to the way she handled it. Now I'm going to have to tune in to find out and catch episode 3 for sure, how about you?
