Bachelor’s pick leaves audience baffled



Natalie Zgurich, Staff Writer

The third time was definitely the charm for bachelor Nick Viall, who finally found true love — for now — on the season finale of The Bachelor Monday night.

Viall proposed to Vanessa Grimaldi after being rejected two times previously on The Bachelorette.

He made it to the final two contestants on both Andi Dorfman’s and Kaitlyn Bristowe’s seasons of The Bachelorette, only to get sent home both times. Monday night, he sent Raven Gates home without knowing Grimaldi’s answer, an unusual strategy that no doubt left viewers wondering if he was going to be rejected a fourth time..

There is still a lot of skepticism about the relationship because the couple could not figure out where they wanted to live — Canada or the United States.

“Bachelor nation” is optimistic about this couple even though they know most of these couples do not last too long when they have to do normal people things — like go grocery shopping rather than go on luxurious vacations to places like St. Thomas and Finland.
