Fans of the Bachelor Spread Rumors of Romance for Academy of Art University Graduate

Posted by TroPe on

The San-Francisco based art school, The Academy of Art University, is believed to be the largest privately-operated university of its kind in the United States. The school has been in operation for over 80 years and counts as its alumni many cinematographers, fashion designers and even actresses Heidi Montag and Raven-Symoné. However, recent attention to the university has not been due to its age or size, but because of a current reality show participant.

Bachelor in Paradise, the latest in the popular Bachelor series, puts Grocery Store Joe back into the spotlight as he tries for love a second time after previously failing in The Bachelorette. His main love interest, Kendall Long, was also a prior love interest on The Bachelor and appears to be the fan favorite for the season.

As a graduate of the Academy of Art University and a former track star for their team the Urban Knights, Kendall has the creativity and persistence to go far in both her career and with this latest bachelor. Many fans think she has already succeeded with the latter. Multiple visits to California by Grocery Store Joe, Kendall’s home state, and several similar social media posts made by the two reality stars have fans sharing the rumor that she was the final choice for this bachelor.

Kendell and her twin sister both graduated from the university in 2014 and Kendell worked as a creative director before her initial appearance on The Bachelor in January of 2018. Her prior career is notable, as the founder of the university also worked as a creative director before establishing the school. Richard S. Stephens left his career at Sunset Magazine to open the Academy of Art University. The school has always sought out creative minds that wanted success and to give them the foundation necessary to have their dream career. Judging by the audience response to Long, she is making the most of her multimedia communications degree.
