Tonight Bachelor Nation will get to take a trip down memory lane and relive Nick Viall as The Bachelor. Nick became the lead and that was his fourth appearance on the franchise. He did end up engaged instead of leaving with a broken heart. However, his engagement to Vanessa Grimaldi was short lived. So, Nick is still single and looking for the one. But, his season did bring some amazing ladies into Bachelor Nation. So, where are they all now?
The details about Nick’s season
US Weekly shared all about what Nick and the ladies from his season are up to. Fans know Nick ultimately chose Vanessa Grimaldi at the end of his season. He proposed and they got engaged. Raven Gates was his runner-up. And, Raven is still loved among Bachelor fans. She actually connected with Adam Gottschalk on Bachelor in Paradise.
The couple moved to Dallas, got engaged, bought a house and are still waiting to get married. Raven said, “We have options to elope, we have options to get married and cut down our guest list by, like, 150 people. I’m not doing that; I’m not uninviting people.” She continued, “So I told Adam by December of this year, if there is no end in sight, we’re just going to elope and get married by ourselves. In our house. And if there is a light at the end of the tunnel by December, then we’ll schedule this wedding for the fourth time.”
Vanessa and Nick tried to make their relationship work. It didn’t. They broke up and moved on. Vanessa actually met someone and fell in love. In fact, she just recently announced her engagement to the world. So, it looks like the winner and the runner-up have both found their happiness.
