“Poor Matt got catfished hard.”

Let’s be honest, we all have a bunch of awkward photos taken in our teens, but we didn’t really expect the Bachelor’s Laura Byrne to be anything other than glamorous as a teenager.

The former reality star proved us wrong, sharing an awkward photo of herself at 14-years-old, but thankfully she’s able to laugh at herself.

The 31-year-old wrote:

“They say that ‘history repeats itself’. Dear God I hope not.”

Tara Pavlovic added:

“@florencealexandras I’m going to get a double frame and put this one next to the baby photo from the T Shirts.”

Laura joked:

“Poor Matt got catfished hard.”
