The Bachelor's Genevieve Parisi Shares Swimsuit Photo as "The Happiest Ever"
Genevieve Parisi first made waves last year, when she appeared as a contestant on The Bachelor. She then appeared on last year's Bachelor In Paradise. Ever since then, her social media following has grown. Parisi just shared a new set of photos from Lido Key on Instagram this week. In them, she posed by the water in a blue swimsuit. She captioned the post, "Give me a clear ocean and a pair of goggles (not pictured) and I'm the happiest ever 🏊🏼♀️" How does she stay so fit? Read on to see 5 ways Genevieve Parisi stays in shape and the photos that prove they work.
She Took Time For Herself
In an interview with BachelorNation.com, Parisi talked about her experience on The Bachelor. She says that she had to take some time with her loved ones to recover. "It was honestly hard coming back from filming, especially for a few weeks. But seeing my family, being with my friends, and getting rest were the best things I could've done. I took time for myself and that's how I got back into everything."
Parisi says that being on The Bachelor has helped her grow as a person. She tells BachelorNation.com that being on the show has helped with her mental health and wellbeing. "The biggest thing I learned about myself from the experience is that I'm very emotionally strong. I've struggled with anxiety and being on the show tested my patience and my anxiety. But seeing how I got through it made me really proud of myself."
She Wants To Inspire Others
Parisi wanted to use her time on The Bachelor to inspire others. She says that she wanted to encourage others to stand up for themselves as she did. "I just hope that I gave people some confidence to stick up for themselves. I did my best to do that the entire time on the show. I was myself and stood up for myself and my friends when I felt like it was the right thing to do."
She's More Vulnerable
Parisi tells BachelorNation.com that she knows what she wants in a relationship, and knows what she has to do to get it. "On the show, I realized that I need to be better about opening up, being vulnerable, and letting my walls down. So since getting back from 'The Bachelor,' I haven't done much dating since I've been back but I have been more open. That's really what I learned from the experience is that I need to be more open or I'm not going to get anywhere when it comes to a relationship."
Parisi spends a lot of time outside. One thing she likes to do is go swimming. She and her fellow Bachelor contestant Rachel Recchia shared this Instagram collaboration of the two of them in a pool. Parisi captioned the post, "Actual Paradise." She also shared these pool photos, captioning them, "Pool or hot tub?"
