Nick Vial is the new bachelor, while it may come as a shock to most of us there are some of America that wants him as the bachelor. While I admit I was against him to start as I wanted Luke to be the one. After watching the premiere I am softening my view toward him. hopefully this will be the season he finds love. This season he got 30 women to choose from guess they thought he needed more options.
Nick has been on the bachelor series 3 times: Andi’s Season, Kaitlyn’s Season and on the third season of Bachelor in Paradise. He lives in Chicago and has a big family with ten siblings. He got good luck wishes from many of his BIP castmates : Sarah, Vinny, Jared, Josh, Ashley I and the twins.
I was a bit disappointed with the ex bachelors coming on to give him advice, I feel like they could have each given him some words of wisdom. Instead we only got advice from Ben. The show did not use their bachelors to their full advantage. They did a great job giving updates on the past bachelor couples who have seen success on the show: Trista & Ryan have been together happily married 13 years, Molly & Jason and JP & Ashley each have two kids. Shawn & Kaitlyn and JoJo & Jordan are both living together. Sean & Catherine and Desiree & Chris both have babies. Jade & Tanner have been married a year.
Now that the intro is out of the way lets get to the first night of Nick’s journey to love. This year I rounded out my picks with 12 girls and included a variety of women.
My Picks: Danielle M, Vanessa, Raven, Rachel, Elizabeth, Sarah, Olivia, Lacey, Kristina, Hailey, Liz, and Whitney.
There were several openers by the woman some were wonderful while others bombed. The best openers were Lacey who got off on a camel ( yes it was a bit corny but it was orginal). Olivia with her eskimo kiss, Corinne who gave him a bag of tokens, and Raven who got him to do a cheer.
Half the women wore red dresses which seemed to be the popular color of the night and one poor woman showed up in dolphin suit, Nick wouldn’t let her out of it all night. I think he thought of it as cute yet funny.The best dressed of the girls were : Elizabeth, Lauren, Morgan, Liz, Olivia and Raven.
Corrine turned out to be more aggressive version of Lacy from the previous season, stealing a kiss and demanding more time with the bachelor and from the previews she might have gone to far by sneaking in his room late at night and ignoring his protests. Does this sound familiar. didn’t Nick himself pull this stunt with Kaitlyn?
I was surprised by the girl who got the first impression rose Rachel the attorney from the south, but in a way she was the one he connected to most in conversation both have big families. He got my respect when he didn’t let one Jasmine G pull him away from a conversation although she then procceded to throw a hissy fit to the other women.
They really didn’t show to many of the connections he made but those that they did only a few stood out to me, I’m hoping this season doesn’t just focus on the drama but on the romance too.
Rose Ceremony: ( 11 of 22) Rachel, Vanessa, Danielle L, Liz, Hailey, Whitney, Dominqiue, Jami, Brittany, Astrid, Christen, Corrine, Elizabeth, Jasmine G, Raven, Kristina, Danielle M, Sarah, Josephine, Lacey, Taylor and Alexis.
