Susan Noles is well aware she resembles a certain famed reality star — and she's totally game to meet her someday!

After Golden Bachelor lead Gerry Turner sent Susan home during last Thursday's episode, the former reality show contestant opened up about the comparisons she would get to Kris Jenner weekly.

"I've been getting that most of my life. I mean, forever," Susan tells PEOPLE. "It happened in Italy, it's happened in The Bahamas, in Atlantic City, just anywhere. The gas station, you know who [you] remind me of? Perfect strangers."

Addressing the pair's similarities, Susan notes how they "both have short, dark hair." She also expressed her love and admiration for The Kardashians star.

"I've loved Kris and admired her forever," she says. "I think she's a very smart woman. Yeah, I would love to have a sit down with her."

And while Susan says she's "not yet" heard from Kris, she adds: "I hope to."

Gerry, funnily enough, shared a photo of himself posing alongside Kris, 67, on Instagram last week after their first meeting. At the time, the photo sparked reactions from fans who jokingly noted that the mother of six was actually Susan.

"Um Gerry, that's Susan from your season," one fan wrote as another commented, "Love this pic of you and Susan."

"We need a pic of Kris, Susan, and you in the middle," one user suggested. "That would be epic!!!"

Susan eventually caught wind of Gerry's post, and replied, "Omg ❤️."

Despite having to say goodbye to Gerry, Susan wasn't entirely surprised by his decision. "I knew we were really good friends and in the friend zone," she admits, noting she was "prepared" for the inevitable to occur.

"I went in with the hopes of falling in love. That's my main purpose. That's why I went," she tells PEOPLE. "I didn't realize how many friends I would make and the bonding that I did with people and the support that we all gave each other."

In the end, Susan has taken away an important lesson from her time on the show: "I've learned that I am not a woman that needs a man. I'm a woman that a man needs."

"I have a big heart. I love to love, and I was on the dating sites and did all that, and it's crazy out there. It's a different world and that you don't meet people organically, unfortunately, anymore," she adds. "Not that this TV show is organic, but you know what I'm saying. I learned something about myself that I don't need anything. I am good, so I'm the prize."
