Liz & Nick just doesn't have the same ring to it…
While 30 women began their journeys for love on The Bachelor Monday night, only 22 survived to see Week Two with Nick Viall.
Unfortunately for him, that 22nd woman — 29-year-old doula Elizabeth "Liz" Sandoz — just so happens to have strong Bachelor Nation bonds already… and her famous friends are NOT happy with Nick right now!

During the ABC premiere, it was revealed the 36-year-old software salesman infamously slept with Liz way back in January 2016 at Jade Roper and Tanner Toblert's wedding — where the current contestant was the Bachelor in Paradise bride's Maid of Honor!
Well, as it turns out, the Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars alum didn't love how Nick treated her BFF during the episode… even if Liz was technically the one who refused to give him her number nearly a year ago.
In fact, Jade spoke with Entertainment Tonight at the Bachelor charity party Monday night, expressing her disappointment in Nick, saying:
"She had talked to me about it before she went on, and I kind of tried to prep her for it and I'm proud of her for doing it. I feel like it's really brave. She really did have an interest in Nick and she went there to see if there was anything and I totally support her."
So far so good…
"I've heard a little bit and I know the whole situation is awkward, but I'll say I'm a little disappointed. He could've gotten her number, too… She didn't really think about him till a couple months later, she tried to invite him to charity events, but he rejected her."
There it is.
While we appreciate Jade standing up for her bestie, we'll have to catch a few more episodes before we decide whose side we're on.

Although, we're definitely leaning towards Nick being free of fault in this one — he tried, at least!
Do U think Liz still has a chance of winning The Bachelor??
