Bachelor Nick Spoilers

(EXCLUSIVE): More Nick Contestants, & Who Got the First Impression Rose?

There are a lot of people with an opinion about Nick as the next “Bachelor,” – some good, some bad. That’s expected. Would’ve been that way whoever they chose. I don’t have a problem with Nick as the “Bachelor” at all. It’s a job to me. Who they choose is the least of my concerns. The fact that Nick has been around the franchise 3 times previous, it’s safe to say I’ve established some very good sources when it comes to him. Lets make one thing perfectly clear: Nick is all about Nick. Always has been. He’s got a very healthy ego that’s increased ten fold since he began in this franchise. He’s even admitted it in past interviews that he knows he can be an a**hole at times. He’s relishing being the “Bachelor.” He’s wanted this role for three years now. So the “awww shucks” attitude is an act. The guy moved to LA and has been taking acting classes. He’s lied in numerous interviews about things, so much so that I’ve lost count. He’s just become verrrrry media savvy. Lets not mistake what we’re seeing here. He’s no spring chicken when it comes to this franchise. He’s unlike any lead they’ve ever cast before, because he’s been on THREE shows before this. No other lead had been on more than one. So Nick knows what he’s getting into, he knows what he needs to do, and he knows what he needs to say. Nick is very much aware what he wants/needs to do this season.

I’ve heard it from numerous people how aware Nick is on how he’s viewed by the public. He LOVED the narrative that changed on him during “Bachelor in Paradise.” From being the villain on Andi’s season, to suddenly people liking his openness and candor, he fed off of it. Unfortunately, Nick is still like a lot of them, in that what random strangers on the internet say and think of him means a whole hell of a lot. Like, it bothers him when something negative is said about him more than it should. I can’t give up sources on this, but the stories I’ve heard are mind blowing. At least to me. I just can’t believe how much he cares what random twitter and social media trolls think. But he does. A LOT. So coming off “Bachelor in Paradise” with a narrative that seemed to turn in his favor, Nick is riding on Cloud 9 heading into “Bachelor” filming and, as he should, wants to keep that going. Nick loves the fact he’s the “Bachelor,” but Nick also has done this for three seasons now to also know that he just doesn’t want to be a good “Bachelor,” he wants to make good TV. He wants people to like him and his season more than any other “Bachelor” I can remember in recent seasons.

It’s kind of a ridiculous thing to hope for since that no matter what Nick does, who Nick dates, who Nick chooses, or what women are on his season, there are still going to be people that won’t like him or the show. That’s just a fact. I’m not breaking any news there. But Nick is most certainly out for a lot of people’s acceptance doing this show. He’ll get it from some, but I don’t think it’ll really be much different than any other season to be honest. Three weeks ago I told you in a in a column on Sept. 28th that we had a first in “Bachelor” history. Unless I’m completely forgetting and drawing a blank, I’m pretty sure it’s a first. Well, I can tell you now what it is. On night one, Nick gave the first impression rose to a black girl. Who was that girl? Rachel Lindsay, who had yesterday’s 1-on-1 in New Orleans.

15. Rachel Lindsay: 31, Dallas, TX. Graduated with a B.S. in Kinesiology and Sports Management from UT Austin in 2007. Got her law degree from Marquette University Law School in 2011 and is currently a lawyer at Cooper and Scully in Dallas, TX.

I’m not saying Nick gave Rachel the first impression because she’s black at all. I’m just saying I think it played a role based on everything I heard coming into this season. This has nothing to do with Rachel. Very attractive woman. All she did was agree to come on the show. I’m sure Nick is into Rachel. Without a doubt. I’m also sure that Nick is very interested in “producing” good TV this season as well. Remember, Nick is about Nick. Will be interesting to see how far Rachel gets.

Two more girls to give to you today. All 3 girls have been added to the Nick’s Girls. Up to 17 now, and I still have 6 that I haven’t given you yet. I’d be pretty shocked if I don’t have the whole cast spoiled by November. Yesterday I also tweeted out that there’s a girl this season with kind of a big name in the franchise. Does the name Brittany Farrar ring a bell to you? It should. She was Jordan Rodgers’ ex who went scorched earth on him last season for his lying about their relationship. Well, Brittany Farrar is on this season – just not THAT Brittany Farrar. But damn that would’ve been funny. Here’s the Brittany Farrar on this season, spelled the exact same way. Talk about a coincidence:

Brittany Farrar: 27, originally from St. Louis, MO but I believe is currently living in LA. Graduated from the University of Missouri – St. Louis. She’s a traveling registered nurse.

    All of these people have ulterior motives for joining the show, why are Nick’s any worse? And you tell me Ben wasnt prodded to give Jubilee a date card or rope Caila to top three to secure her (potential) Bachelorette role? There seems to be a lot more ethnic girls on this season. Considering Nick clearly likes brunettes, its no wonder he would happily assist the show in taking a non white girl to the final 3 or 4. I honestly dont think this would’ve worked with someone like Chase, whose idea of an ideal girl is a blonde Fox conservative. I have a feeling, this might have also played in a decision of why they choose nick over luke and chase.

    I do find this insinuation to be extremely offending and absolutely baseless. The last person to object against women of color is Nick. He has always been extremely open-minded when it comes to women of different backgrounds, with several of his ex-girlfriends being WOC. (Even his former fianceé.)
    Rachel seems to be a beautiful, intelligent, bubbly women. There is no reason to assume that the she only got a first impression rose because of her ethnicity. This is entirely suggestive, based solely on your extremely skewed opinion of Nick. At leas have the decency to disclose it as such(as an opinion) and not try to portray it as a fact.
    There has been several instance where your writing has been clearly defamatory, but this is an extremely hurtful instance, one that you should rethink after a lengthy chat with your lawyer. Nick has always been a good sport when in comes to rumors and criticism, but I can assure you, this is one insinuation he absolutely WON’T play along with.

    I actually agree with you on Nick I have no doubt he seems like the guy who cares waaay to much about his Instagram followers to be the most popular so pathetic

    Rachel got her law degree 15 years ago at age 16? Lol.

    PS Lauren8, they ALL do. Ben, Shawn, Lauren, JoJo, Andi. etc. They all care way to much than they should. But then again, I think on some scale, a lot of us care too much about how the world sees us on social media.

    Yeah, I agree with Chloe. I think it’s a bit harsh to say he gave the rose to her because she’s black and he wanted to be strategic vs just really liking this girl and how she presented herself on night one. Being social media savvy and caring what people think don’t exactly point to him being some horrible person either. He loves when people love him and throw him accolades? Of course he does. Don’t we all? And of course he’s always wanted to be The Bachelor. Every single person who has ever gone on this show is hoping for either fame and/or love. It doesn’t make them a bad person. Why else would they do it? They’re not going to find some blushing “who, me?” innocent and altruistic lead who crawled out from under a rock and barely uses social media.
