But wait — wasn’t she “in love” with Nick Viall, too? Rachel said that she was, but she got over it. As being surrounded by 31 other guys fighting over you on national television will do to a woman. She said, “I’ve moved on since then and time heals all and to be back with family and friends and work, it’s a different situation, but I 100 percent would’ve said yes back then. That was the mind-state that I was in.”
Although there are some very ridiculous guys on the show this season, like a man who says his profession is being a “whaboom,” which he swears is a real lifestyle thing, there are some good catches this season. Even Chris Harrison seemed impressed about the number of grown ass, professional men. He said during the cast reveal, “You have all these Type A personalities, some older guys, more professional, because of who Rachel is. These guys are used to being successful, and good at what they do.”
So it’s a pretty safe bet that the “whaboom” is out.
