It’s happily ever after for Nick Viall and Vanessa Grimaldi! Multiple body language experts have confirmed to HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY that the newly-engaged ‘Bachelor’ couple are the real deal; this isn’t for the cameras! We have the details here!
When anyone falls in love on TV, there’s skepticism surrounding their relationship. Do they really have feelings for each other? That’s goes doubly for The Bachelor, where most engagements end up in ruins instead of happy marriages. But it’s not always the case; there are plenty of couples who have gone the distance!
Nick Viall and Vanessa Grimaldi appear to be the latest Bachelor couple to make it, two noted body language experts told us. You can see it all in how they acted during Nick’s beautiful proposal!
Body Language and Influence Speaker Kevin Hogan told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY that things seemed awkward between Nick and Vanessa during the proposal, but that’s normal; Nick’s asking her to marry him, and they’re both nervous!
“[Nick’s] pre-‘will you marry me’ was a bit awkward; [they’re] holding hands for an extended period of time in front of each other,” Kevin said. “It was almost a little barrier, as if something was between them. Could be nothing. Could simply be his personality and comfort zone. He had a hard time touching her, showing emotion the way I would have expected. Of course, there are cameras in front of their faces reminding them every second they are not in an intimate setting,”
But don’t get it wrong; they’re totally in love! It’s plain as day, according to Kevin: “They respect and like each other very much. There is a definite connection that is strong. The actual request for marriage was very nice. Real tears. Real emotion. Real heart. These two people are getting married and like each other.”
David B. Givens, Ph.D., the director of the Center for Nonverbal Studies, agreed with Kevin; Nick and Vanessa are the real deal! He reviewed our gallery of photos taken from The Bachelor finale, and concluded from the couple’s body language that they’re absolutely in love. The three photos he discusses are composited above:
“[They have] very strong and emotional eye contact (in the top photo). This is really hard to fake. They truly like, and love, one another,” he told us EXCLUSIVELY. “Note how the exquisitely sensitive tactile pads of her fingers caress the back of his neck (in the middle photo). She adores him, and fingertip signs don’t lie. She is not holding her emotions back, but gives them fully and unreservedly to Nick.
“A most energetic kiss (in the bottom photo). Note how Vanessa’s thumb and forefingers tactile pads caress the softness of Nick’s cheek and neck. A sure sign that love bonds are forming.” Amazing!
