After many failed attempts, our Bachelor is finally living happily ever after... or is he? Nick and Vanessa were super awkward on After the Final Rose, and we weren't the only ones who noticed. In fact, Bachelor Nation was taken back too.

Although, let's be real, if they did break up, we have a feeling there are plenty of women who wouldn't be too sad about it. You saw those ladies in the audience. They were all hoping he was still single!
