After starting his season with a whopping 30 women, Nick Viall's remaining Bachelor contestants are dwindling down week after week. He axed eight women in the premiere alone, which is the price of starting with more than the usual 25, I suppose. Then, in the second week's episode, Nick sent Liz home during the group date. It's always fairly unusual for a contestant to leave outside of a rose ceremony, but Nick proved right off the bat that he's not afraid to break the "rules" when it comes to getting rid of ladies he's just not that into.
Over the course of about 10 weeks, Nick will whittle his astounding night-one number of 30 contestants down to the final two, from which he will (hopefully) choose one lady to be his bride. And, she will (hopefully) choose to accept that Final Rose, because getting rejected again after his history on the show would really just be the worst.
You can follow along on Nick's ~journey~ to love with Bustle, as we keep this list up-to-date with all of The Bachelor's current competitors and those who have sadly been sent home to shill teeth whiteners on Instagram and await their Bachelor in Paradise casting calls.
