Joan Vassos is not ready to do anything for love. In her first interview since then announced as the very first leading role of The Golden BacheloretteThe 61-year-old headteacher revealed what she would never do for a man.

“I think you almost have to lead a double life. I will never leave my family. They are of course the most important people in the world to me, and I would expect that to be the case for the person I am too, because family is so important to me that it is a central part of their personality should be,” said Joan CNN. “You have to be willing… to travel and be with that person and maybe spend a few months or a few weeks at a time… and then maybe at some point find a destination that is or is suitable for you and your families.” another house where everyone comes together.

“I didn’t want to spend my life alone, so I knew I had to do something, but my heart wasn’t there at all. I said to my friend, ‘How on earth are you dating now? Look around.’ “Everyone here is a couple. All my friends are married,” she recalled, before saying, “The universe is talking to me.”

She eventually landed a role on the series and vied for it Gerry Turner‘s heart.

“I learned so much from him about opening your heart and being vulnerable,” Joan said of Gerry, whom she decided to go amid health concerns for her daughter.

We don’t have sticks. Some people on the show had hearing aids, but no one could see that they had them. Growing old now is completely different. We were all very fit, played sports, told great stories about raising our children and learned so much from each other.”

“We have a lot of knowledge within us because we have lived life,” Joan added. “In our culture, I feel like getting older is not a dignified thing. You should just fade into the background and take a back seat to the next generation. I hope we change that a little. “We’re still fun and energetic and we know how to use our phones.”

“If an engagement happens, I’m open to it. I believe this process works. I’ve seen it work for so many couples.” The bachelorThat’s why I believe in the process,” she said. “If we end up getting engaged, that’s great. If we end up getting to know each other better in the outside world, that’s perfect too.”

In the real world, you have to spend some time there.”
