Christen Whitney is the 25-year-old self-proclaimed crazy woman on The Bachelor season 21. She revealed that she is a virgin and unintentionally caused Liz Sandoz to be sent home.
The Bachelor always has its fair share of crazy, which is why we watch it. Adding to the craziness this season is Christen Whitney. Considering the first thing she asked Nick Viall was “How crazy do you think I am right now?” we think it’s fair to say. Given her outgoing personality and her stylish entry, we wonder what her family is like. We have gone through Christen Whitney’s social media accounts and found details on her parents and siblings. Here are some must-know facts about The Bachelor contestant, Christen Whitney’s family.
Ever since Christen Whitney admitted that she’s a virgin, that is all people know her by. She quickly became known for something else by episode 2. We all know about “fourth time’s the charm” Bachelor Nick Viall’s past with Elizabeth ‘Liz’ Sandoz. There have been plenty of references to their one-night-stand at Bachelor alums Jade and Tanner Tolbert’s wedding. But since Sandoz’s arrival at The Bachelor mansion, Viall has been noticeably nervous. After all, this isn’t helping his image makeover after his previous Bachelor stints.
While Viall was worried that his history with Sandoz will come between his relationships with the other contestants, Sandoz confided in Chrisetn Whitney about their hookup. As Viall tries to find out if anyone knows about his past with Sandoz, Whitney hints at knowing. This results in Viall sending Sandoz packing. Because of this, Whitney has faced some backlash, and has been defending herself and Liz on Twitter.
