Lace was initially a contestant on season 20 of The Bachelor, which aired at the beginning of 2016. She went on the show in hopes of falling in love with season 20’s Bachelor, Ben Higgins. Lace quickly emerged as the “villain” of season 20 during the first two weeks of filming. However, she decided to quit the show on her own accord during week three, telling Ben that she wanted to work on herself before pursuing a relationship with someone else.
