Bachelor Nation Agrees on One Thing: Nick and Vanessa Were Totally Awkward Last Night
Bachelor Nation, much like our nation, is divided. The outcome of the recent season that ended in Nick Viall getting down on one knee and proposing to Vanessa Grimaldi was disappointing to lots of people who had fallen in love with Raven Gates and wanted to see her get the final rose.
On last night’s After the Final Rose special, Nick and Vanessa were…awkward together. They spent a lot of time talking about how hard things have been after the show and seemed to be uncomfortable around each other, which is probably to be expected when two people who have known each other for only a few months get engaged on a TV show.
Former contestants had a lot to say:

Of course, everything is heightened and awkward in a TV setting, which pretty much every couple to come out of The Bachelor franchise seems to admit, including Nick and Vanessa last night. Now, their relationship actually starts.
