Having made it to the finals on “The Bachelorette” twice only to have his proposals turned down, Viall was worried that third time would not be the charm. He brought his family from Wisconsin over to Finland to offer him advice and support as he made his decision as to which of the two women to choose.

His parents Mary and Chris met with each of the women vying for their son’s affections. Mary warmed to Raven, finding her to be “an honest, trustworthy person” while Chris thought she would fit in with the family. After meeting with Vanessa, who voiced her concerns about finding a fellow via a TV show, Chris worried that she would hurt Nick.

Nick then went on a final date with each of them to help him make up his mind.

He and Vanessa went horseback riding in the mountains and ended up at a cabin, where they were welcomed in by Santa Claus. After telling Santa that her one wish was “ending up happy with the person I love,” Vanessa was given a heart-shaped frame with photos of Nick and her. Later on, when curled up by the fire, both admitted their fears of rejection.

Nick and Raven started their date by ice skating on a lake and both recalled the time they had roller-skated back in Wisconsin. They ended the date by having drinks and he again spoke of his concerns while she assured him she would accept if he proposed.

In the end, Nick decided that, while he loved Raven, he was in love with Vanessa. He spoke glowingly of the moment when he had fallen for her and said that his love for her grew stronger as he spent more time with her. He dropped to one knee to propose and she readily accepted.

  1. Vanessa seems bitchy so I’m afraid he’ll live to rue the day, but ultimately his being happy is what matters so I hope I’m wrong and he’s right. We only see what the show lets us see, so I have to think he knows better than we do.

  2. Sorry to tell you that You are very wrong to say that ‘bitchy!’ On the contrary, she is a sweet heart with a great heart. You should see her with her students in Montreal. The only thing is that she is mature and realistic. She told what was the life under filming scenes and the normal life. She couldn’t mention any date of wedding because they don’t barely know each other ( just few months).
