What Are They Up To?
Nick and Vanessa were on The Bachelor reality TV show from January 2nd to March 13, 2017. As the love between the duo grew, everything seemed fine both to them and to their fans as a result of which a lot of people were looking up to their engagement.

Vanessa, as reports have it, now has a man in her life who she met 8 months after she broke up with Nick. She lives in Canada now and is also doing well in her teaching career.
Vanessa’s new man is said to be from Montreal, Canada and he works in the military. Further details revealed about him have it that he shares a lot of similarities with his partner.
