Spoilers ahead! The Bachelor star Nick Viall dumped one contestant mid-date on Monday night’s episode, and her sister is telling her side of the story!
Rather than wait until the rose ceremony, Nick dumped Liz Sandoz as soon as he decided she wasn’t the one for him. “The whole thing is unfortunate,” Liz’s sister Koryn Rigotti told RadarOnline.com exclusively. “He didn’t handle it gracefully. He could’ve handled it with more kindness.”
Liz and Nick had met prior to the show at mutual friends Jade Roper and Tanner Tolbert’s wedding. The two shared a fun night together, but when Nick asked for Liz’s number at the time, she said no!
“I think about the night that we had and how much fun we had. To me, I had a great time. When you made the decision [not to give me your number] I said goodbye,” Nick told the doula during some alone time on their group date. Soon after, he kicked her to the curb.
But Liz’s sister claimed she only said no because she “was not at the right time in her life to commit to a relationship.” Still, Nick couldn’t get past Liz giving him the silent treatment in the eight months that had passed since their last meeting, and he didn’t trust Liz’s intentions. He even wondered if she was only “using [our] past to be on TV.”
“That’s definitely not true,” Koryn said. “We talked through that when she found out he was The Bachelor. She was truly interested in seeing if she should give him a chance.”
But it doesn’t look like Nick wanted to give Liz that same chance! Do you think Liz really joined the show for the right reasons? Let us know in the comments!
