Also participating in that season are, Alexis Waters, Corinne Olympios, Danielle Maltby, Jasmine Goode, Kristina Schulman, Lacey Mark, and Taylor Nolan.
While Kaitlyn and Shawn called it quits in November 2018, Nick went on to appear on Bachelor in Paradise season 3. After forming a connection with Jen Saviano, Nick opted to leave the beach solo and fans were shocked when ABC named him the season 21 Bachelor. And while he found love with Vanessa Grimaldi, they called off their engagement several months after the 2017 finale.
The Arkansas native met and fell in love with Adam Gottschalk during season 4 of Bachelor in Paradise. After the twosome moved to Dallas together, he popped the question in June 2019. Raven confirmed to Us in August 2020 that the pair were forced to replan their nuptials several times amid the coronavirus pandemic.
Rachel made history as the first Black Bachelorette in 2017. During season 13 of the spinoff, she met and got engaged to Bryan Abasolo, a Miami-based chiropractor. Two years later, the couple exchanged vows in Mexico in August 2019.
Kristina made waves on seasons 4 and 6 of Bachelor in Paradise. During her first stint in Mexico, she was in a love triangle with Dean Unglert and Danielle Lombard.While she and Dean gave their relationship a shot outside of Paradise, they were both single when they returned for season 6 of the show. This time around, however, Kristina was involved in drama with Blake Horstmann, whom she hooked up with at Stagecoach before the season started. The problem was Caelynn Miller-Keyes also spent time with Blake at the music festival. In a shocking turn of events, Caelynn ended up with Dean and Kristina left Mexico solo.
Whitney returned for season 6 of BiP after meeting Connor Saeli at Krystal Nielson and Chris Randone's wedding, which was filmed for the show. While they dated briefly after the show wrapped, Connor confirmed their split in September 2019.
Astrid met Kevin Wendt during season 5 of Bachelor in Paradise. While their relationship on the beach was rocky, they reconnected post-show and he proposed in August 2019. The couple, who live in Canada, confirmed in July 2020 that they were forced to postpone their wedding amid the coronavirus pandemic.
Nick and Danielle also go to a Chris Lane concert. Talk about a downgrade from the Backstreet Boys... no offense to him, but why does this show try to make random country singers a thing every season
Rachel opens up to Nick about her fear of rejection, which we all know Nick can relate to (see Bachelorette seasons 10 and 11). It is also going to make it that much more awkward to watch him (inevitably) dump her.
At the end of the night, the date card goes to Raven, thereby ensuring her the first hometown of the season. So while Kristina and Corinne head back to the hotel, Nick takes Raven to an oceanside concert, where they decide to dance not on the dance floor, but about 20 feet to the right of it Do they not actually have tickets to this concert
During her time vying for Nick Viall's heart in the 2017 season, Corinne sparked Napgate (when she slept during a rose ceremony and justified her actions by saying that Abraham Lincoln and Michael Jordan took naps), and her comments about cheese pasta and her nanny, Raquel, rubbed some of her co-stars the wrong way.
Five years after her season of The Bachelor aired, Corinne has moved on to other ventures. The podcast host and jewelry designer spoke exclusively with Distractify about her iconic reality TV run and what she's up to now.
While there's always someone who ruffles feathers with the other contestants on any given season of The Bachelor or The Bachelorette, few have been able to provide the comedic relief that Corinne did during her time on Season 21.
Some viewers have been comparing Corinne to Shanae Ankney, who is competing for Clayton Echard's heart in Season 26. Though Corinne was viewed as the villain on her season, she points out that she was merely \"funny,\" and not malicious.
\"Honestly, I don't really watch the show,\" Corinne said. \"No one has really caught my attention to want to watch it. In my opinion, for a while, they were picking super weird bachelors and bachelorettes.\"
All of us dealing with the problems that come with the winter season can forget such issues now that another season of ABC's The Bachelor is here for us to live vicariously through. (For the sunshine, at least, if not the densely existential conversations.) This year, franchise familiar Nick Viall is the guy with the big collection of roses to dispense, and viewers are guaranteed to see him finally end up with a mate at the end of a season, as he'd previously come out as a runner-up in both The Bachelorette's Season 10 (Andi Dorfman) and Season 11 (Kaitlyn Bristowe), as well as netting 7th/8th place in Bachelor in Paradise's third season. 59ce067264
