How Nick Viall Gained My Support (After Being His Biggest Critic)

ABC's newest leading man is controversial to say the least

How Nick Viall Gained My Support (After Being His Biggest Critic)
InTouch Weekly

When Nick Viall first graced our television screens in 2014, and I was easily his biggest hater; when Andi gave him the first impression rose I nearly threw a bottle wine at the television. Over the course of the season, I nicknamed him Creepy Nick which stuck throughout his stint on Kaitlyn's season. While I always found Nick to be irritating with a collection of oddly skinny scarfs, my true hatred of him never formed until his infamous appearance on "After the Final Rose". In short, Nick asked Andi why she slept with him, if she wasn't going to pick him in the end. This is a very reasonable question and would have been completely fine, if he didn't confront her on live television.

Slut shaming is not something that goes over well, especially with females, which is the majority of Bachelor Nation. Nick quickly became public enemy number one, and I honestly thought after two rejected proposals, he would give up. When it was announced that he would be on "Bachelor in Paradise" I think we all did a giant eye roll. After the premiere episode, my opinion on him started to change. Not only did he seem significantly less annoying than I remember, but I was actually starting to like him.

After Josh pulled a "Mr. Steal Your Girl" with Amanda, I felt horrible. Seeing somebody be painfully rejected three times, can even turn the darkest heart red. One of my favorite Nick moments this entire season, was when he flat out told Ashely I. that Jared will never be in love with her. It was painfully honest, but something she needed to hear for her own sanity. I slowly, but surely, became a huge Nick fan.

When it was announced that he was the next Bachelor I was in complete, and utter shock. After the initial revelation (what about Luke??!!) I actually was pretty impressed. Nick went from being one of the most hated contestants in the entire franchise, to scoring the leading role. I couldn't be more excited to see if he (finally) finds love!

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.

Fibonacci Sequence Examples: 7 Beautiful Instances In Nature

Nature is beautiful (and so is math). The last one will blow your mind.

Yes, the math major is doing a math-related post. What are the odds? I'll have to calculate it later. Many people have probably learned about the Fibonacci sequence in their high school math classes. However, I thought I would just refresh everyone's memories and show how math can be beautiful and apply to physical things everywhere around us with stunning examples.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.
