Kristina is a 24-year-old dental hygienist from Lexington, KY, who boasts natural beauty and a unique Russian/southern accent.

The 5'2" bachelorette didn't find love with Nick Viall on The Bachelor's 21st season earlier this year, so she decided to test her luck on Bachelor in Paradise. Kristina hit it off with Dean Unglert in Paradise right away, and they enjoyed a romantic date that made Kristina think they were headed in the right direction.

However, the couple has struggled to communicate, and all hell broke loose when the gorgeous Danielle Lombard arrived at the Mexican resort and asked Dean out on a date, which he was thrilled to accept.

Now Dean must make up his mind and choose between the two women, before one -- or both of them -- chooses to walk away first.

Below is a list of 6 facts Reality TV World has compiled about Kristina Schulman:

- Kristina entered an orphanage in Russia when she was only five-years-old and lived there for almost eight years. She was adopted at age 12.

- The Bachelor in Paradise bachelorette would be the fictional character, Fiona, from Shrek if given the option because she has some serious karate moves and is feisty and darling at the same time.

- Kristina's favorite television show is American Ninja Warrior because she's amazed by what the human body is capable of and it motivates her to work out.
