According to Brittany’s Bachelor profile, the 23-year-old is a model from Chicago, Illinois. But, Brittany hopes to move to New York City and travel the world. That said, one glance at Brittany’s Instagram feed will give any Bachelor Nation viewer wanderlust. 

The Bachelor fandom can find Brittany’s Instagram under the handle @lilgalvin. The new contestant has already garnered quite the following. But, it’s not hard to see why. She frequently posts stunning photos of her adventures, from Cape Town to Dubai

Now, will Brittany’s adventures include James after The Bachelor finale? Bachelor Nation will just have to wait and see what happens. But, according to her bio on ABC, Brittany is looking for a man who is “fun, mature, and trusting.”

“She can’t be with a man who won’t let her live her life, and says she has no time for unnecessary drama,” Brittany’s profile reads. “Even though she’s only 23, if the right guy comes along, she says she is ready to get engaged.”

Brittany will be one of five new women to join the cast in The Bachelor Season 25 Episode 4. The contestant will be accompanied by Michelle Young, Catalina Morales, Kim Li, and Ryan Claytor. Now, it appears Brittany will make an impression on her first night at the Nemacolin Resort.

In the promo trailer for The Bachelor episode on Jan. 25, Brittany kisses James after stepping out of the limo, noting that she wanted to make up for lost time. It was also clear the other women were not pleased by the new additions. Nevertheless, it seems Brittany will stand her ground.

“They just wanted to save the best for last,” Brittany said and shrugged her shoulders.

The Bachelor promos also revealed one of the new contestants will be accused of being an escort. “She’s entertaining men for money,” Anna Redman said in the preview. 

According to Bachelor Nation spoiler blogger Reality Steve (Steve Carbone), Brittany will be the target of the accusations. He also reported that Anna and Kaili Anderson are the ones who bring up the rumor. 

Then in the Jan. 25 episode, Anna brought up the rumors in front of the entire cast. Brittany denied the allegations.

“I’m not an escort,” Brittany said. “It’s just so ridiculous to even say that, to have that come out of my mouth. I’ve had a boyfriend my entire… since I was 16. Making a conclusion about me before you even get to know me, that’s sh*tty.”

Meanwhile, many Bachelor Nation fans have called out The Bachelor franchise for using this as a storyline, particularly because the show and accusers appeared to be stigmatizing sex work and slut-shaming women. But, however the franchise tells the story, it seems James took the accusations seriously.

“Those are serious accusations to bring up against somebody,” James told Extra in January 2021. “I don’t have a sister, I don’t have a daughter. But, if my sister or my daughter was being accused of something like that, I would take that seriously. And that’s what we did. I took that super serious, and we got to the bottom of it.”

The Bachelor Season 25 airs Monday nights on ABC.
