It’s looking good for West Linn’s Lauren Bushnell on “The Bachelor.”

The woman known as Lauren B on the ABC dating competition show had a date with bachelor Ben Higgins in Monday’s third episode, and it appeared to go quite well.

The two went for a ride in a vintage car, and then for a biplane ride — including over “The Bachelor” mansion where the other 16 contestants looked up in the sky at them.

They landed in a valley, where there happened to be a hot tub set up for them. Romance happened. They also went to a Lucy Angel concert in a barn.

So, Lauren B’s standing looks solid moving forward.
