Kristina is a 24-year-old dental hygienist from Lexington, KY and beautiful 5'2" brunette with a Russian/southern accent.
Viewers didn't see much of Kristina in the first few episodes, but she received the latest group-date rose in Nick's hometown of Waukesha, WI. She shined doing unpleasant chores on a dairy farm and later expressed to the Bachelor how she wants to open up about her difficult past when they have enough time to chat.
Kristina also butt heads with the season's villain, Corinne Olympios. Kristina confronted the blonde about her inappropriate behavior, including napping through a previous Rose Ceremony. Kristina made it clear that she's ready to get married all the while questioning Corinne's intentions for pursuing Nick so passionately.
