Danielle Maltby seemed committed to Michael, and the former Bachelor star even moved to Ohio to be with him. She got herself a job but their relationship didn’t last.

Many Bachelor in Paradise fans predicted that it wouldn’t take long for Michael’s ex to return to Nashville. However, that didn’t happen and she explained why when she spoke with Cleveland Magazine recently. Well, it seems that her job is still one of the main reasons why she remains there. The outlet reminded readers that she works at “The Skin Center, a medical spa in Shaker Heights.”

Danielle Maltby said:

I work with these incredible women who have brought so much joy to my life. They rallied around me and made lists of all of these things to take me to and to do together, just to keep me busy and show me the city…I’m someone who has always gone where life takes me, and I’m always open to an adventure. My superpower is that I can make a beautiful life wherever I am.

Michael Allio first appeared in Katie Thurston’s The Bachelorette. He knows the pain of loss and to this day, he opens up about it. Clearly, he loved his wife Laura very deeply. You might recall that she passed away from cancer. Sadly, he said in January, “Finding happiness after loss is hard.” So, it seems doubly sad that he and Danielle Maltby didn’t find what they were looking for.
