While I was writing my news piece for the day, I chance upon this tweet from People EW Network where they posted a short interview of The Bachelor Season 21 winner Vanessa Grimaldi and Nick Viall.
I was not consistently updated with Nick's season. However, whenever I get the chance, I watch it online or read articles about him and the updates of his season. When the first episode was aired, I tried watching it close to its real-time release. The girls were all hopeful that their first introduction to Nick will make them stay for at least a few episodes.
I tried putting myself in their shoes and I know I can't do it. I don't think I have the energy to compete with 30 girls to get one guy's attention. However, I still watched it because I am intrigued to see how Nick can develop that "special connection" with the girls.
Every week, I read the news on who gets eliminated and based on my recollection (even if it was a few episodes prior to the rose ceremony) I realized that the girls, who went home that night, did not have that connection with Nick.
Finally, after eight weeks, he chooses between Raven Gates and Vanessa Grimaldi. Eventually, Nick chooses Vanessa (I hate it when Reality Steve is always right about The Bachelor - ugh).
In that particular interview, Vanessa admits that it was difficult for her at first to understand the concept of one guy having feelings for a lot of girls, yes girls. The Special Education Teacher said that rather than focus her energy on who Nick was spending time with, she decides to focus on what she feels for him and vice versa.

With that kind of attitude, she was able to concentrate on making sure that he picks her from the rest. To be quite honest, The Bachelor or the upcoming The Bachelorette is a very tricky reality show. As I always say, I am amazed at the ladies and men who join this reality show.
Their ability to accept the competition and be friends with them as well. I will probably have a mind over heart battle all the time! Now that The Bachelor Season 21 ended, I am looking forward to seeing how Rachel Lindsay's (my personal favorite for Nick, if I can choose) season will turn out.
