You don’t need The Bachelor or The Bachelorette spoilers to tell you that these relationships rarely work out after the show. To wit …
The inevitable breakup of The Bachelor’s Nick Viall and Vanessa Grimaldi may have already taken place, according to reports.
Not that this would be surprising, if proven to be true … but should we stick a fork in the couple’s romance yet, though, or no?
Recent reports of trouble in paradise come from celebrity gossip magazine In Touch, which offers up the following dispatch:
The couple recently attended a friend’s wedding in Mexico and a witness noticed they “looked miserable” on the flight home.
Maybe air travel just sucks and that’s all there is to it?
Nick, 36, and Vanessa, 29, who announced their engagement back in March after The Bachelor finale, looked miserable after that too.
Since then, they’ve revealed that they are in no rush to get married – a theme he’s repeated in multiple interviews throughout the spring.
“Like Vanessa and I said, it’s too early for us right now,” the perennial reality star said. “We’re still just doing a lot of new things together.”
Before the finale, insiders say Vanessa was having some serious regrets, especially after seeing his behavior on the hit ABC show.
“Not only was she hurt by what she [saw play out on television], but she was so embarrassed by his behavior,” the insider said.
“Nick is already very sweet and loving toward her in private, but [she saw] how much of a playboy he is, thanks to the show.”
The couple moved to L.A., far from her native Canada, for Nick’s newfound acting and modeling (and Dancing with the Stars) career.
Is she jealous of her future husband’s fame?
Vanessa, a special ed teacher who’s now trying to get acting work, “absolutely hates that Nick [gets] more attention than her,” a source said.
“She has a manager and an agent,” the insider says of Grimaldi, but unlike fiance Nick, “her career hasn’t gotten off the ground.”
Before being cast on The Bachelor, Vanessa was an aspiring actress, making her acting debut on an episode of Blue Mountain State.
The beautiful brunette was also on Being Human and Ascension before getting into teaching, a job highlighted as she courted Nick.
As for Viall, he’s made it very clear that his days of being an account executive for Salesforce are now in the rear view mirror.
“Well, I’ve been able to do some other stuff as a result of being on [TV] so many times,” he said. “I don’t do the software thing anymore.”
“I’m lucky enough to have my own thing.”
How long will he have a fiancee, though?
It’s not looking good for Nick and Vanessa’s engagement, that’s for sure, and she’s reportedly given him a (hilarious) ultimatum.
“Vanessa has told Nick,” the source said, “that if he doesn’t help her get more deals, she’ll tell the public their relationship is fake.”
We give it 3-4 more months tops.
