UVA's basketball arena has a new favorite John Paul Jones

UVA's basketball arena has a new favorite John Paul Jones

If you do not follow the official Twitter account of the John Paul Jones Arena, you are missing out on premium "Bachelor in Paradise" content. 

During the college hoops off-season, UVA's home arena - as SBNation's Streaking The Lawn first pointed out - has become a fan account for the Bachelor contestant of the same name.

The name isn't the only connection: John Paul Jones, the "Bachelor in Paradise" fan favorite is a DMV local, and son of a UVA alumnae. We even saw him at a Nationals game this season.

And so, in lieu of any pressing sports news, the Arena's account is capturing the biggest news in reality TV.

JPJ stole the hearts of ABC's "The Bachelorette" fans on Hannah Brown's season. After a few short weeks, he was sent home, though his time with the franchise did not end there. He is a staple on the networks' spin-off show, "Bachelor in Paradise" which currently airs twice a week.

The Twitter account is all in on this season, live-tweeting the best JPJ content.

JPJ Arena will welcome home national champion Virginia Cavaliers when their season kicks off in November.

The arena hopes to add to the excitement by creating the greatest sports and Bachelorette crossover ever.
