Poor Vanessa Grimaldi!
The brunette beauty broke down in tears during last night's episode of The Bachelor and admitted she was frustrated with the show's process and tired of constantly having to compete for Nick Viall's time.
"How can my relationship get to another level?" she asked the cameras while on a group date with several other contestants. "I'm just fed up with it. I'm fed up with having to compete for time. I'm fed up with having to get his attention."
Now that the episode aired, Vanessa has taken to Instagram to share a behind the scenes photo from the emotional period in her life. In the pic, the 29-year-old is being held by the show's producer, Elan Gale on the beach where the group date took place.
"I get by with a little help from my friends ??❤ #thebachelor #abc #notdrunk #emotionalweek," she captioned the sweet photo.
Nick and Vanessa's relationship hasn't exactly been easy thus far. Earlier in the season, Vanessa questioned if the 36-year-old was interested in finding a wife or just looking for someone to hook up with after he was spotted getting a little too handsy with this season's villain, Corinne Olympios.
The negative backlash Nick has been getting from the girls this season doesn't exactly come as a surprise. According to In Touch, many of the girls felt the former software sales rep came off as "completely arrogant and a total diva."

"He [was] always expressing [to the women] that sex is important to him. It comes off as sleazy!" the source added.
But despite the drama between Vanessa and Nick, fans are still hopeful that the Canadian will go the distance this season. Find out if Vanessa gets Nick's final rose here — and scroll through the gallery to see adorable photos from her Instagram!
