Natalie first appeared on the "Bachelor" with Jason Mesnick in 2009. She was let go during the third episode. At that time she was a human resources recruiter from Morton, Illinois and she was 28 years old, making her about 31 today.
She next appeared as a contestant on the first "Bachelor Pad." At some point in the game, everyone must "couple up." She and David Good got together and ended up sharing $250,000. There was a trick, share or keep. If they both kept the money, neither one would win. If one kept the money, that person would keep the money. If they shared, they would share. There were some tense moments as each one pretended that perhaps they had kept the money for themselves. But, we had a happy ending.
Natalie and David
David and Natalie remained great friends but there relationship did not turn into a romantic one. Natalie keeps busy with friends and charities. In October of 2011, she was spotted at "Starbucks" in Los Angeles.
Life and Style Magazine ran an article on her and Matt Grant. They both were frequenting that location at Starbucks and Matt finally asked if she would like to have coffee together. They became friends. And, today they are an item. Both of their friends think they are a good match.
And in December 2011, we learned that she has an eye for fashion. She is going to be a guest stylist for ICE, and online jewelry retailer. Sounds like things are really looking up for her!
