Raven Gates had her heart broken on The Bachelor by Nick Viall, but she's ready to take another shot at love on the Summer 2017 edition of Bachelor in Paradise.

During The Bachelor: After the Final Rose special on Monday night, Raven, a 25-year-old clothing boutique owner from Hoxie, AR, revealed she's definitely up for an adventure on Season 4 of Bachelor in Paradise.

"What's next for you?" franchise host Chris Harrison asked Raven, who looked stunning in a low-cut black dress.

"Well, I mean, I'm always looking for love," she said.

"You know, I've got something going on this summer in Mexico," Chris noted with a big smile.

"Yeah!" Raven said.

"They call it Paradise," Chris joked.

"I've heard of this place. I didn't know it existed, but, hey. If anything, I know if Nick can go to Paradise and do this experience and find love, that I can too," Raven explained.

Nick appeared on last summer's season of Bachelor in Paradise. He had a fling with Jennifer Saviano but failed to fall in love with her.

"So we'll see you in Paradise?" Chris clarified.

"Yeah!" Raven noted gleefully.

"Alright, we'll see you in Paradise this summer," the longtime host told Raven.

Also during her After the Final Rose appearance, Raven explained that she was very stoic when Nick was dumping her only because she was trying to process his words.

Raven doesn't want anyone to think she said things she didn't mean or that she wasn't totally devastated.

Raven's dreams came crashing down when Nick rejected her at the final Rose Ceremony in Finland because she was more than confident he was going to propose to her.

"I think maybe a lot of people thought that I was naive. But I wasn't. I think Nick and I were on the same page and had conversations about how hard it would be to be in a relationship in general," Raven revealed.

"I just wanted to be so optimistic in what we could have... I definitely thought I was going to get engaged on that day. I think you could see it on my face, how shocked I was... I thought it was so important to be fun loving around him and to reassure him that no matter what we'd go through as a couple, we'd always get through it... but don't think I didn't have struggles because I definitely did."

Raven, however, is "really happy" for Nick and wants "the world" for him. She doesn't wish his relationship with Vanessa any ill will and feels the pair will definitely tie the knot someday.
