Bachelor Nation was introduced to the 32 women vying for the heart of Matt James on Monday night's premiere of The Bachelor, but one contestant has been going viral on Twitter.

Kristin Hopkins, a 27-year-old attorney from Virginia Beach, Virginia who practices law in New York City, went viral over the weekend thanks to an amazing story from a college friend, writer-comedian Sydney Battle.

Battle took to Twitter on Saturday to share her story, just before the Season 25 premiere of The Bachelor on Monday, which seemingly landed her many new fans.

'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,' Battle began.

The original tweet got over 8K retweets and over 233K likes over just the first two days. 

Battle then shared the publicity photo of Hopkins for this season, which also revealed her age and hometown, adding, 'Leggo.'

She then added another tweet, tagging her friend, 'it’s @kristinbhopkins and honestly the power of her charisma has always terrified me!!' 

She then re-enacted part of their conversation from the subway that night, stating, 'girl, this man is creepy. He's hitting on you.' 'how could he possibly be hitting on me?? he told me maybe i could babysit for his daughter. LOL.'

Battle concluded her thread with a final tweet, adding, 'run-on sentences are very funny to me, punctuation is a prison — i didn’t know the man was hitting on me, he was a rando we met at the event, she stayed with me so he’d leave me alone and that’s all folks yay another run-on.'

Hopkins would ultimately retweet the first tweet in Battle's thread, with the hashtag #TheBachelor.

It seems this gained her a substantial amount of new followers, which Hopkins addressed in another tweet.

'So many new friends here thanks to the wonderful @SydneyBattle. Happy Sunday to you all! This is a fun and positive space, sprinkled with some petty here and there. Let's get it,' Hopkins said.

Hopkins' bio on The Bachelor website describes her as, 'fiercely loyal, intelligent and credits her unmatched work ethic to her incredible mother who raised her.'

She is looking for someone who isn't afraid to be 'openly affectionate,' since being with her means, 'personal space goes out the window.' 

The lawyer is ultimately looking for someone, 'who will let her be their biggest cheerleader and who will in turn be the same for her.'

20 must-read health books
The Health section of your local bookstore or online book retailer looks different than it did a couple of decades ago, when titles like Food-Free at Last: How I Learned to Eat Air or The South Beach Diet Supercharged were popular picks. Still today, authors—including would-be physicians, B-list celebs and underqualified fitness experts—dole out “health advice,” trying to convince readers that running themselves ragged with dieting and strenuous exercise will make them thinner, prettier, and happier. In fact, it has had an adverse effect, especially on women. The cruel dieting culture, incessant calorie counting, and little to no representation of health experts from diverse communities, along with the unrealistic standards set by the beauty and fashion industries, have led to eating disorders and severe mental health issues. Today, coupled with wellness, the topics covered in health and well-being books focus more on making healthy choices daily, keeping active, practising self-care, and being mindful of our mental health. Thanks to the body positivity movement, and some notable influencers in this space, we know that healthy bodies come in all shapes and sizes. This is also a time when we are hearing from more underrepresented voices in this space, making health advice and wellness tips more inclusive and relevant for all. Start the new year off with motivation, stories, and advice on how to live a healthier, happier life that works for you. Get moving by adding these 20 must-read health books to your cart.
