January 12, 2015 Updated: July 18, 2015

Britt Nilsson is one of the contestants on The Bachelor season 19, an early frontrunner after sharing passionate kisses with Chris Soules in the premiere.

While Britt is pegged by some as the next Bachelorette, many believe she has a solid shot at winning Chris’s heart due to their fast connection.

Nilsson, 27, currently works in Hollywood, California as a waitress after growing up in Michigan. She has gotten a few modeling gigs, and also starred in a short film that was later published online titled “Innocent Attraction.”

In her profile, the 5’5″ woman said she can’t live without her Bible, journal, makeup, snacks, and cell phone. She also said she doesn’t like worrying but likes to step outside her comfort zone.



Britt said that if she won the lottery, she would pay off her college loans, buy her parents whatever they need plus a vacation, save half of the rest and give the other half to charity.

She also expressed admiration for authors David Foster Wallace and Dave Eggers. “David Foster Wallace or Dave Eggers. Both men have (or had) such a grasp of the human experience and the English language. Great wordsmiths, highly eccentric,” she said.

She said she admire people in the world who face danger to promote or defend the things they believe in, and also briefly discussed what she sees as her greatest achievement to date. 

“The children I sponsor are my most proud achievement. I am happy to put my money toward giving them a better life,” she said.
