Vanessa Grimaldi's hometown date was rough for Nick Viall because The Bachelor star faced some tough questions about his future.

However, Nick seemed to like Vanessa's family and appreciate how protective they were of her. With the Final 3 Rose Ceremony coming up in the next episode, it will be interesting to see if the 29-year-old special education teacher from Montreal, Quebec, Canada, gets a rose.

The 5'3 1/2" brunette beauty was called "a keeper" by Nick on the night they first met, and their connection has only deepened and intensified since. But Nick knows some difficult conversations are to be had with Vanessa, including whether she'd want him to move to Canada if they got engaged or would be willing to follow him.

Vanessa is definitely Nick's physical type, not to mention she's feisty, full of energy and kind-hearted. Could she be "the one" Nick has been looking for all this time? And if Nick was to propose in the end, would she accept?
