‘The Bachelor’ is Really Good at Breaking People Up

In heartbreaking news, Nick Viall and Vanessa Grimaldi split.

Oh, you don’t know who those people are? They got engaged on season 21 of The Bachelor, a show that still exists even though only two couples in 21 seasons are still together.

The divorce rate in America is 50 percent. The divorce rate on The Bachelor is over 90 percent. Please tell me why these people go on this show to find love when statistics say that they’re 40 percent more likely to end up divorced or broken up once the show is over. I’ll wait.

Anyway, these two released a joint statement that you can read if you care.

“It’s with a great amount of heartbreak for the both us as we have decided to end our engagement…We gave this relationship our all and we are saddened that we did not get the fairy-tale ending we hoped for. We will continue to be there for each other no matter what. This hasn’t been an easy decision, however, as we part ways, we do so with lots of love and admiration for each other.”

If you want a fairy-tale ending, don’t go on a reality show to find love. It’s a pretty simple concept.

This relationship was doomed from the start because Grimaldi quit her job as a special education teacher in Montreal to move to California to be with Viall who…was competing on Dancing With the Stars. Don’t leave your normal life in Canada, a much better place than America right now, to be with a guy who has been on five, yes five, reality shows. Kids who need to be adopted in Ethiopia are less starved than this guy.

Tune into season 22 of The Bachelor when two more people swear they are in love after a month where the guy dates 20 other women only to find out that, “nah,” when the cameras are turned off
