Meet Vanessa Grimaldi, ‘Bachelor’ 2017 Contestant (PHOTOS)


At this point, our dream pick for Nick Viall’s future wife is really anyone who will return his feelings.

After all, we can’t stand to watch the two-time Bachelorette runner-up get dumped on national television for a third time!

We’re hopeful that won’t happen, and one of the reasons is contestant Vanessa Grimaldi.

Going strictly off her bio and what we’ve heard about her from Reality Steve, the 29-year-old gal has all the qualities fans (and Nick’s own mother) would want for him.

First off, she’s a bit more age appropriate for the 36-year-old hunk than some of the 24-year-olds in the Season 21 cast.

Getting past that basic trait, it’s also clear the beautiful brunette is our Bachelor’s type, when you consider his past interests of Andi Dorfman, Kaitlyn Bristowe, and Jen Saviano.

Speaking of Kaitlyn, Vanessa is also Canadian (from Quebec) and the Wisconsin hunk has been known to gush about those from north of the border.

But it’s her job that really gets us.

As a special education teacher, she’s truly doing the lord’s work and has some brains to back up her looks.

She’s also trilingual (English, French, and Italian) and super family-oriented, according to her ABC bio.

Bear in mind, Nick has a whopping 10 siblings, so this will come in handy!

We see good things ahead for this one!

My life in a picture.

The Bachelor Season 21 premieres Monday, January 2 at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
