I never thought I would find myself siding with Bachelor Nick Viall on any relationship issue, but in regards to to Liz Sandoz bizarre breakup with Nick last Monday I have to jump into Nick’s corner. That girl is CRA CRA!!!
Liz confronts Nick and divulges the dirty details of their time at Jade and Tanner’s wedding. In case you had not heard…they had sex.
She then accuses Nick of “not fighting for her”!! And then breaks up with him in what is supposed to be a friendly role playing activity.
Ok, so here’s the situation…Nick slept with Liz at Jade and Tanner’s wedding. Nick really liked Liz and tried to get her to give him her phone number. She refused to give him her digits and the two went their separate ways. Cut to several months later Liz emerges from the limo to pursue a romantic relationship with Nick.
Nick is excited because as I said, he really liked Liz. But he is also understandably weary since all Liz had to do was give him her phone number and if after the wedding night Liz had a change of heart she could have gotten Nick’s phone number from Jade and Tanner given that Jade is her best friend. Liz did none of the above.
Instead she went to producers. She took the 1000 question questionnaire and all of the blood and urine tests to appear on the show and tells Nick she just never got around to calling him. Then accuses Nick of “not fighting for her” and admonishes him in front of a slew of amazing ladies he is pursuing.
Needless-to-say something is not adding up here.
I was super curious to hear Nick’s reaction. So here it is in his People blog,
“Okay, so now we need to talk about Liz. Going into the last date of the week I was nervous. Very nervous.
I hadn’t talked with Liz since that first night when she surprised me by getting out of the limo. We left our conversation open, but I had so many questions left. Liz didn’t give me a solid answer on why she was here. While I was eager to continue our conversation, it was an even bigger priority for me to make sure I gave the other five women as much attention.
The concept of The Museum of Broken Relationships is a little crazy, but I think everyone — including myself — found it interesting. I thought, if these girls have a dating history half as crazy as mine, they get it.
I wasn’t too nervous when preparing to hit the stage for the breakup performances. But once the other couples started to break up before us, I couldn’t stop thinking about Liz. All the other women had a good time with this (it was light, it was fun) — even Josephine’s slap didn’t sting as hard as Liz getting on that stage.
I couldn’t believe Liz used our history as the material for the breakup in front of everyone. I was confused by her intentions and disappointed. I couldn’t imagine she thought that was the best approach to communicating. I wondered then, Did she tell any of the women already? Was she deliberately just trying to insight drama with me? I didn’t feel like her performance was beneficial to start up the private conversation we needed to finish, and so I went into the after party with even more questions.”
I suspect Liz never had any intentions to date Nick and always planned on using their indiscretion as a way to shame Nick publicly. But the problem is Liz is the one who did not “fight” for their relationship! So her efforts fall flat and only serve to draw scrutiny to her intentions, not his.
