Alright, Bachelor fans. I know that a lot of you were cheering for Raven to be paired up with Nick, but that’s not the way things went this time around. Nick Viall proposed to Vanessa Grimaldi on The Bachelor, and these two are happy together. Nick and Vanessa are still together after The Bachelor, and Bachelor fans better get on board or be left behind.
I think one of the reasons that I couldn’t get on board with Nick and Vanessa during the season was because so much of their relationship happened behind the scenes. It seemed on the outside that these two were just bickering and having deep conversations about the future while Nick had actual, you know, fun with the other women on The Bachelor. But we were all wrong, I suppose, because Vanessa and Nick were really laying their foundations there. On Jimmy Kimmel Live, Vanessa and Nick talked about how they’re taking things one day at a time in order to have the best relationship they can have, and I can’t fault them for that. I guess the rumors are true — Nick and Vanessa really love each other, and even the haters can’t stop them now.
That being said, as a hater (not sorry), I’m a little worried for Nick and Vanessa’s Hollywood future. Nick is in Los Angeles, about to start Dancing With The Stars, and that kind of schedule won’t be easy for a new couple. I mean, long rehearsal days and more (solo) time in the spotlight? It’s a hard transition to be a newly engaged couple, and it’s hard to adjust to a schedule like the one on Dancing With The Stars. Nick and Vanessa may be together for the long haul, but they have a way to go to get down the actual aisle. For now, though, they're proving the haters wrong and sticking it out.
