Kristina is a 24-year-old dental hygienist from Lexington, KY. The beautiful 5'2" brunette with a Russian/southern accent is one of six girls remaining and pulled at heartstrings around the world when she shared the story of her difficult past with Nick.

If Kristina wasn't a frontrunner in Nick's mind at that point, she became one, because he was incredibly impressed by her ability to overcome adversity. Nick told the bachelorette that she brings color to his life, and she has the qualities he's looking for in a future wife?

But will Nick select Kristina in the end and propose? Could she be "the one" for him?
