Twitter's Response To Bekah's Age
When Bekah was introduced on season 22 of The Bachelor, her age was noticeably missing seeing unlike every other contestant of the reality series. And that little detail definitely got Twitter a little riled up.
even though she used a fake ID to get on the show, Bekah is definitely in my top 5. #thebachelor— Diggy Moreland (@diggymoreland) January 2, 2018
Ok Bekah has no age and apparently she doesn't want to tell Arie her age later in the season so either she's like 18 or 47 #TheBachelor— Bachelor Thoughts (@bchlrthoughts) January 2, 2018
And that's just the tip of the iceberg.
How Old Is Bekah M? An Investigation.
While Bekah's age continued to perplex people on Twitter, later Monday night, social media dug up how old Bekah M really was through some sleuthing on the nanny's Instagram. A photo surfaced from Bekah's Instagram from her 21st birthday, which was posted on February 10, 2016. That means that Bekah would be 22 years old.
To confirm this, we go deeper into Bekah's Insta history. In this Instagram post, Bekah used "#21" to describe her post from February 10, 2016. Bekah also posted an Instagram earlier this year that confirmed that her birthday is on February 10th.
So, it definitely looks like Bekah M is 22 years old. So, why hide it on The Bachelor?
Why Did The Bachelor Hide Bekah M's Age?
At 22, Bekah is one of The Bachelor's youngest contestants. It's possible that ABC thought that viewers thought that Bekah's age difference from Arie was too much for viewers to handle. Arie is currently 36 years old. But, as long as Bekah is over 18 and consenting, there doesn't seem to be an issue. That is, unless ABC has strategically decided to only cast women who are much younger than Arie's age. But, that is another matter entirely.
So, why did The Bachelor decide to hide Bekah's age? Well, we're guessing it has to do with a plotline later in the season. In the trailer for The Bachelor season 22, we hear someone say, "I wonder if her age is going to be a dealbreaker." Yikes.
But, we're going to have to wait and see if Bekah's age is ever revealed in this season of The Bachelor!
UPDATE: In a Bachelor press screener, Bekah stated that she is in fact 22 years old. But, if that's true, then we have a ton of other questions!
How Old Is Bekah M. Now And When She Was On The Bachelor?
So, we know that The Bachelor is filmed before the new episodes air on ABC. So, how old is Bekah right now? And how old was Bekah when she filmed The Bachelor season 22? Well, if she is currently 22 with her birthday in February, then she probably was 22 when the show was being filmed. And seeing as it's still January right now, she's still 22 years old. But, Bekah will turn 23 in February, which is less than a month away!
What Is The Age Difference Between Arie And Bekah On The Bachelor?
Now, we're left wondering what the age difference between Arie and Bekah really is. So, how old is Arie on The Bachelor? He's currently 36 years old. So, what's 36 minus 22? Well, 14. That means that Arie and Bekah are 14 years apart.
Do you think Bekah's age is an issue, Bachelor fans??
