Okay, so we all watched “Bachelor in Paradise.” We saw Daniel Maguire flexing his muscles, we saw Ashley Iaconetti cry one too many times, but most importantly, we saw Nick Viall try, for a third time, to find love. We all thought he would end up with Amanda Stanton, but Josh Murray certainly was not about to let that happen. Murray, season 10 winner of The Bachelorette, originally stole Andi Dorfman from Viall, and continued to one-up Viall when he stole Stanton away after only the second week in paradise. To our surprise Viall ended up dating Jen Saviano; however, he dumped her by the end of the show. Now, after being the only person in Bachelor history to be a two-time runner-up, Viall finally gets a chance in the spotlight.
Season 21 kicked off with a bang as Viall, America’s newest heartthrob, began his journey to find love on January 2nd. Viall was introduced to thirty women prior to the first cocktail party of the season, and several of them certainly stood out. Among them was Alexis Waters, an “aspiring dolphin trainer” from Secaucus, NJ. Waters greeted Viall in a “dolphin” costume and made quite the splash. Although an endearing joke, it was quickly pointed out to Waters that she was indeed wearing a shark costume.
Blast from the past! Liz Sandoz, Jade Roper’s maid of honour, tried for a second chance at Viall’s heart. Meeting in a hotel lobby at Roper’s wedding, Viall and Sandoz initially had chemistry, but would that same chemistry return? Sadly, no. Viall eliminated Sandoz after just the second group date of the season.
Back at “The Bachelor” mansion, sparks flew between Corinne Olympios and Viall after she took off her top, landing her a “confidence” rose. However, Danielle Maltby was also given a rose after a romantic one-on-one, putting her at the top of the brackets.
Now for the question everyone has been asking, will Viall find love? We have no doubt that Viall will propose at the end of the season. You know what they say, fourth time’s the charm!
