Danielle is a 31-year-old neonatal nurse from Nashville, TN. She was one of 30 bachelorettes to meet Nick on Night 1 and ended up being one of 22 women to receive a rose by the end of the first Rose Ceremony.
Nick bonded with Danielle over their shared Wisconsin roots, and he also seemed to appreciate her kind and sweet personality, which he believed is representative of the character a neonatal nurse must have. Danielle also appears to be an aspiring model.
It's clear Nick felt a connection with Danielle right off the bat, but does she have what it takes to win the Bachelor's heart and ultimately be "the one?"
