Nick Viall dumped Danille Maltby and Kristina Schulman last week on The Bachelor. See what he has to say about both these women and the shocking eliminations.
“Danielle and I had a great first date and it gave our relationship such a strong start. So heading into this one-on-one I was hoping that we hadn’t lost that momentum. Danielle is a beautiful, kind-hearted and has so many qualities I’m looking for in a partner. But throughout the day I couldn’t help but feel like we were suddenly missing that spark. Our relationship seemed to lack some of the ease I felt with the other women.
As our date headed into the night, I knew something had to change for me or I might have to make the terribly hard decision to say goodbye. Danielle has already experience tremendous heartbreak. I couldn’t help but feel that, even though I cared so much for this woman, we were not going to get back to the place we were on our first date. As the evening progressed with the thought of maybe meeting Danielle’s family in my mind, I knew something was missing and it was time to say goodbye. I knew I just wasn’t ready for that next step. I wish nothing but wonderful things for Danielle.
With the week coming to a close, I felt overall that every date was filled with some really special moments. The five women remaining were all unbelievable. Saying goodbye to Danielle was difficult and heartbreaking, but knowing I had one more goodbye felt like my heart was breaking into a millions pieces.
The more I thought about it the more I just kept coming back to Kristina. I felt so strongly for Kristina. She melted my heart in so many ways, but I just knew deep down I had stronger connections with the other women.
I couldn’t stand the idea of taking Kristina further only for it not to work out. As hard as it would be to say goodbye to her now, it would have been 100 times harder for both of us if I took a leap and then said goodbye in another week. That goodbye was easily the most difficult moment I had up until that point. It was hard to process how I felt knowing how deeply I cared for her. I just had to trust myself that I was making the right decision.”
