It's 2017 and, at last, Nick Viall's season of The Bachelor premieres on Monday night. Many women will vie for roses — and his heart — but only one will emerge as engaged at the end of the season. At this point, the lucky woman could be anyone, including Danielle M. from The Bachelor. According to her official bio, Danielle Maltby is a neonatal nurse from Nashville, Tennessee, who is looking for a new beginning. Throughout her bio, you'll notice she makes several references to starting anew: The 31-year-old is getting tattoos on her ribs and lower back removed, she mentions that she moved to Nashville to "put myself back together," and that she "lost my fiancé and I needed to start fresh somewhere."
Her former fiance passed away, as stated in her Bachelor bio. According to Wet Paint, Danielle M.'s fiance was Nick Haag, a musician who died at age 29 in 2011 of an alleged drug overdose. Nearly six years later, she has been working as a nurse, has done some modeling with Amax Models, and is now looking for love with another Nick — this time on The Bachelor. According to Wet Paint, Danielle M. is from Wisconsin, just like Nick Viall, so they may have a lot to talk about. But will it lead to an engagement? That remains to be seen.
Here's what else you need to know about Danielle M. on The Bachelor.
