Yuki Kimura hails from Atsugi, Kanagawa and she was previously a contestant on The Bachelor Japan season 1. Now, she is a contestant on The Bachelor Winter Games and she may not find love, but she’s sure to bring a smile to the faces of fans across the nation. Bachelor expert Reality Steve recently stated that, “The international contestant who steals the show and will probably be everyone’s favorite is Yuki from Japan. Why? Because she knows about 5 words of English, yet is ridiculously happy to be here, and all they do all episode (and all season) is play up the fact she doesn’t speak English. It’s actually pretty funny. No translator, she sits in on all the conversations even though she has no idea what anyone is saying. Even does a few ITM’s and basically just says the only English words she knows.”
Show host Chris Harrison had similar things to say about Kimura, telling People that she is “the one to watch”. Harrison insisted that, “This girl who knows – I would say the over/under is 15 to 20 words in English — will absolutely captivate everybody. The reason I know this is because when we sit in the control room with people that have been doing this for decades like I have, and they’re – we are speechless and we cannot take our eyes off this girl. She’s just so compelling, she’s so sweet [and] so funny.” Get to know more about Kimura in the below introduction video.
