Jacqueline is a 26-year-old research coordinator from West Virginia, who currently resides in New York, NY. Prior to appearing on The Bachelor, she worked as a research coordinator at Mount Sinai.
Jacqueline is one of Arie's seven remaining bachelorettes, and she'll be heading to Tuscany with the group in the next episode.
Arie is smitten with Jacqueline yet a little intimidated by her intellect. Jacqueline flew under the radar for most of the season, but all of a sudden, she emerged in the Paris episode and had a one-on-one date with the The Bachelor star.
Although they get along fabulously and are attracted to each other, Arie fears they are headed in two different directions in life. He wonders if they could really make a relationship work and last in the real world.
