I’m guessing about 99% of you don’t remember Nikki Delventhal from Chris Soules season of the “Bachelor” – and she likes it that way. Hell, she doesn’t even remember exactly what rose ceremony she got eliminated in. We think we figured it out, but we’re not sure. But Nikki Delventhal from the “Bachelor” is the last thing she wants to be known for. When you hear her reason for even doing the show in the first place, well, let me just say I’ve never heard a contestant openly admit that was their reason for doing the show. Yet through all that, doing the show is what led Nikki to where she is in life today. We recorded this on Monday while Nikki was in her car. Not because she was driving to or from work, or squeezed it on a busy day. No, it’s because that’s where Nikki lives. No, not in an Airstream. Or a giant truck. Or an RV. Nikki lives in a 2006 Prius with her dog Camper and has for the last year and a half. It’s a fascinating story that I hope you all take the time to listen to today. So glad Nikki came on to tell her story. I think you will be too after listening.
You can listen to today’s podcast on a number of platforms, but you can also tune in by clicking the player below:
(SPOILERS) I begin by discussing the Bachelor franchise announcing yesterday the start dates for “Bachelorette” and “Bachelor in Paradise” this summer. Then Nikki joins me (8:34) to discuss her journey from her reasoning to going on the “Bachelor” (one I’ve never heard before), to her mindset after she got off the show, where she decided to go with her life afterwards, when and why she decided to start living out of her car, how she found her dog Camper, what made her decide to start a charity in Camper’s name, and much, much more.
