Since November 2016, rumors and other online publications reported that Vanessa would be one of the finalists on season 21 of The Bachelor.  On March 13, 2017, on the final episode, it was confirmed that Nick chose Grimaldi and asked for her hand in marriage; she said yes.
Nick Viall's Engagement Ring
Sources confirm that Nick Viall gave Vanessa Grimaldi a 4-carat diamond ring from Neil Lane worth $93,000.  This is $7,000 less than the most expensive ring ever presented on The Bachelor; the record belongs to Ben Higgins, who presented a $100,000 ring to Lauren Bushnell in Season 20. Shawn Booth presented a ring worth $150,000 on Season 11 of The Bachelorette.
Feud with Rachel Lindsay
It has been reported that Vanessa got into a fight with Bachelor contestant Rachel Lindsay during Week 7 of the show. According to reality television commentator Reality Steve, Vanessa approached Rachel in Bimini. She felt that Rachel wasn’t being “real” with her, ostracizing her with the other women by rolling her eyes, and speaking to her in an intimidating tone. Although Vanessa allegedly made Rachel feel uncomfortable, she disagreed with the claim that she was ostracizing her.
Vanessa eventually told Rachel she told Nick about how Rachel felt about her, which escalated their feud.
It was also claimed that Vanessa was insincere and that she would act one way on-camera and a different way off-camera when she was only with the bachelorettes.
Lindsay was eliminated when there were four bachelorettes left in the show.
Vanessa was an actress in the late 2000s. She was the co-host of Gameloft's YouTube video podcast for a few episodes.  She was the co-host of Can your School Rock in 2010 and had a role in the TV show Blue Mountain State.
Vanessa Grimaldi is afraid of sharks, bees, and hurting people's feelings.
She believes her best attributes are her personality, drive to succeed, work ethic, and patience.
