Vanessa is a 29-year-old special education teacher from Montreal, Quebec, Canada. The brunette beauty impressed Nick on Night 1 by speaking French right out of the limo, and when she left him to enter the Los Angeles mansion, he called her "a keeper."
Vanessa seems sweet but feisty and fun. She was a good sport on the season's first group date by dressing up as an 80s bride and posing with Nick in a crazy wedding-themed photo shoot. The bachelorette has yet to embark on a one-on-one date with the Bachelor.
