As Nick has said, oh, about 30 times in the course of his season of The Bachelor, he’s had his heart broken before. Now that his parents are meeting Vanessa and Raven, they certainly have some questions for these two women. First up? Raven, our bubbly business owner from Hoxie, Arkansas, who had the pleasure of meeting Nick’s parents first. Needless to say, his parent are weary of this journey that their son has been on and Nick’s parents grilled Raven about her relationship on The Bachelor.
It needs to be said — I love Nick and Raven together. These two go together like peanut butter and jelly. They have chemistry, they have long talks, they seem to like each other’s families — I don’t know where it could go wrong, if Nick could stop crying for 30 seconds. Nick’s father asked Raven if she and Nick had exchanged those three little words, and Raven had lamented that she had said she loved him and Nick hadn’t said it back (which is par for the course for this show. I don’t know how many times I have to tell you guys this). Nick’s mom listened patiently when Raven talked about how much she liked Nick, and Bella, Nick’s little sister and the star of the entire Bachelor franchise, also chatted separately with Raven. These two are best friends, and Raven even said that Bella would like Raven better than Vanessa. When this girl is right, she’s right.
So who wins? I couldn’t guess. Raven and Nick have a great connection, and it seemed like his parents could see that. But stranger things have happened. We’ll just have to stay tuned to see whom Nick picks.
