The Bachelor’s Mari Pepin age, Instagram, job: Everything to know about the season 25 contestant

MARI, MATT JAMES (ABC/Craig Sjodin) /

Matt James kicks off his journey to find love as The Bachelor on January 4, 2021, on ABC. Will he find love with contestant Mari Pepin?

If you don’t know him, Matt James has risen to fame over the past year thanks in part to his friendship with Tyler Cameron, who was famously the runner up on Hannah Brown’s season of The Bachelorette.

As Tyler C. skyrocketed to fame, his buddy Matt came along for the ride. They live together in New York City and were a part of the Quarantine Crew on TikTok during the beginning of the pandemic. Originally cast as a suitor for Clare Crawley, ABC skipped a step and crowned Matt as the Bachelor without a minute of air time on ABC. Now let’s get to know some of his suitors.

Mari Pepin Age

Mari is a 24-year-old from Odenton, Maryland

Mari Pepin job

According to her bio on ABC, Mari is a marketing manager. Per her LinkedIn profile, she has been the marketing director for Maryland Plastic Surgery & PURE MedSpa for the past two years. She is a graduate of Townson University with a Bachelor’s degree in Communications Studies.

Importantly, Mari is also a pageant queen. She was crowned Miss Maryland USA 2019 after a several year-long pageant career. She finished in the top-10 of Miss USA 2019. Very exciting stuff!

Mari Pepin Instagram

Mari has just over 12,000 followers as of the time of this writing. She appears to be very into the color orange. Check out her Instagram (and perhaps give her a follow) by clicking here.

Mari Pepin Twitter

Mari created her Twitter account back in 2009, but only has seventeen tweets. I sneakily think she’s going to be the best live tweeter of the season. It is also important to note that she is a big fan of IKEA meatballs:
