The Bachelor 2017: How Long Will Nick and Vanessa Last?

He's got a shot mostly just because he's relatively recent, and he may be memorable to some semi-casual fans of the franchise. Every bride wants her ring to be unique (a big reason many even get them custom-made), yet, in most cases, she's usually not the one picking it out, being forced to trust that her partner knows her well enough to know her personal tastes and style.

"There's no reason to speed up the process", said Grimaldi.

Every season, it's the same: During the season finale of The Bachelor or The Bachelorette, Neil Lane arrives with a tray of dazzling diamond engagement rings for the suitor (or suitors, depending on the season) to select and, ultimately, propose with. It would seem that the ring Nick gave Vanessa is the same one Robby Hayes chose for JoJo Fletcher on The Bachelorette. "I just closed my eyes and envisioned her lovely face", he told People of his pick. What would be more ridiculous is if Nick saw the ring, thought it would be ideal for her, but didn't choose it because it was the same one Robby chose.

Popular blogger Claudia Oshry from Girl With No Job was the first to point out the coincidence when she posted a side by side image of both rings on Twitter.

"I bring six rings, and over the years, over the nine years, some are the same, some have changed settings or are redesigned, and some are totally new", Neil Lane said to People. How long do you think Nick and Vanessa will last? If Nick saw that ring and immediately thought "Vanessa", then that's all that matters - and honestly, she seems to really love it.

Well that's awkward. Nick Viall absolutely loved the 3.75 carat ring he picked out for Vanessa Grimaldi, but he wasn't the first to choose it. Robby Hayes, the runner up from JoJo Fletcher's season of 'The Bachelorette, ' actually chose the exact same one!
