Lauren Marchetti is a Cranston native, graduate of Cranston High School West and a former Patriots cheerleader.
More recently, she was a host for GoLocalProv's GoLocalTV broadcast in 2011 and 2012.
Monday, she appeared on ABC's reality television series "The Bachelor" as one of 30 women hoping to lure the affections of Sean Lowe.
According to her bio on The Bachelor Web site, Marchetti admires her parents because they taught her "strong values and prepared me for every type of situation I may face."
Her all time favorite book is "The Best Advice I ever got" compiled by Katie Couric.
She hates it where her date "doesn't offer to pick me up from my house, texts me and doesn't come to the door to let me know he's there."
