Alayah Benavidez Is In San Antonio Practicing Social Distancing By Ordering In

This week has felt different than any other for many reasons, one of which being that an episode of The Bachelor wasn't aired this Monday. The 24th season ended last week and since then all eyes have been on the contestants from this past season, not only to see what they're saying about Peter (yikes) but also to see how they're handling this pandemic. San Antonio native Bachelor contestant Alayah Benavidez, the former reality icon known to stir up some drama, has decided to practice social distancing in her home city.

Benavidez had some pretty interesting storylines during her time on The Bachelor. From being told she wasn't "there for the right reasons" by every other girl, to being brought back in by Peter after being eliminated by Peter.

It was pure chaos if you ask us, and thankfully, she's taking this time to stay in and practice safe and healthy habits.

With a show as popular as The Bachelor, fans tend to look to former contestants, especially from the most recent seasons, to see what it is they're doing and possibly follow their lead.

According to her IG story, Benavidez is ordering heart-shaped pizza, sipping on a glass of wine, and staying in at her San Antonio home!

The former Miss Texas USA has always shown pride in her home city, and we can't blame her!

After her trip to Arizona, pictured above, Benavidez captioned her photo with "Back home, canceled all of my upcoming travel plans and on lockdown with a few bottles of 🍷" and we love her for it.

She also warned her fans by saying "Remember guys - be safe, stay home."

Benavidez wasn't the only contestant from this past season from Texas, there were quite a few from the North Texas area as well. Deandra Kanu, we're looking at you girl!

While production for the upcoming season of The Bachelorette has been put on hold due to the outbreak, we're looking forward to when they pick it back up and we can start counting down the days until the men are in the hot seat!
