Nick Viall and contestant Danielle Lombard appeared to have quite a connection during their 1 on 1 time together on The Bachelor, but shockingly on Monday Nick decided to send Danielle home after she told him she “loved” him.
Danielle is gorgeous and sweet and definitely charming, but in the end Nick felt something was missing it the 27-year-old Los Angeles aesthetician. In his People blog he explained why he decided to eliminate Danielle Lo.
“Sitting with Danielle that evening, I can’t really put my finger on what felt off, but I just didn’t feel the same confidence as I did in Wisconsin. I had seen myself going to Danielle’s hometown, and maybe even further, but over the weeks that followed Wisconsin that started to slip away. I saw this evening as an opportunity to get back on track. It wasn’t until Danielle told me she loved me that I knew I couldn’t say the words back. I felt instantly heartbroken. Heartbroken over hurting this woman who allowed herself to be vulnerable … heartbroken because I had felt so confident a week prior.”
Take heart Bachelor Nation, I don’t think we’ve seen the last of Danielle. I have a strong feeling she we will be heading to Paradise this summer to join the cast of Bachelor in Paradise.
