The reality star is an artist too
Justin’s Instagram is a work of art, literally! Not only is he famous for his vivid expressions, but Justin also possesses incredible artistic skills. His Instagram bio also consists of an emoji of a palette, showing his love for painting.
He has shared pictures of several of his paintings, including sketches of his own family, most notably his grandparents.
In 2014, he shared their portrait and wrote in the caption: “Portrait I drew of my amazing grandparents for a surprise gift to them. Easily my favorite work of art that I’ve done. Words can’t describe how much these two mean to me. Can’t wait to give it to them!”
Justin is reportedly an Economics major and has a minor’s degree in Visual Arts. He earned his Bachelor’s degree in Business Technology Administration in 2016.
Fans react to Justin’s elimination
Several fans feel Justin’s elimination was unfair. Even though Katie made it clear that her feelings for Blake were stronger, viewers believe Justin deserved a chance. Therefore, his fans are rallying to see him in the upcoming season of The Bachelor.
One wrote: “I am kind of sad that Justin didn’t start getting a great edit until the end because now he’s not going to have a chance to be the Bachelor. And I feel like he’d be a really good one.”
Another added, “I’m mad that the #bachelorette producers didn’t show Katie’s and Justin’s love story, didn’t set him up to be the Bachelor or anything on the show or AFTR. Like??? Poor Justin fr.”
