Deputy Editor of New York City
Fans of ‘The Bachelor’ can’t get over how much one contestant, Sarah Trott, looks like Alexis Rose from the Emmy-winning show ‘Schitt’s Creek’!
During the Jan. 4 premiere of The Bachelor, social media was filled with comments about how Sarah Trott resembles Annie Murphy, who plays Alexis Rose on Schitt’s Creek. Viewers can expect Sarah to get even more attention during the Jan. 11 episode, as she gets one of the two one-on-one dates in the episode. Sarah will get some quality time with Matt James, but it won’t take long for some drama to kick in.
“Sarah is thrilled to join Matt on a romantic ride aboard a 1930s biplane, but the love-struck bachelorette is having a difficult time seeing him with other ladies,” a press release for the episode says. The release also hints that this will lead to “multiple women spiraling out of control” during episode two. As we wait and see how it all goes down, here’s more to know about Sarah:
