During this week's episode of The Bachelor, fans were laser-focused on one and only one contestant--Miss Daisy Kent. It was clear from the minute Joey laid eyes on her that there was something special about her, and as a viewer, we knew it too.
During this season's second episode, Joey decided to ask Daisy out for a one-on-one date--and boy, was it magical. Everything about that date from start to finish had us "awwing" and swooning over the chemistry between these two.
I don't know about any of you but I think it seems like these two are endgame!
One of the things that had Daisy feeling a bit nervous was telling Joey about her cochlear implant. She was worried about how he might react and what that might do to his feelings about her. But as expected, the big reveal only won Joey over and the love in his eyes seemed to grow even more. I know it is too early to say love, but these two are definitely those "love at first sight" folks.
Daisy opened during their one-on-one date and explained to Joey how she ended up with the cochlear implant, and what journey was like. The build-up was nerve-wracking, but in the end, Joey completely understood and commended Daisy for her bravery. I love to see it!
Some of you may be curious as to what the condition is that caused Daisy to lose her hearing, and so we've got all the details for you below!
Daisy Kent has Ménière's Disease
What exactly is this condition? US Today explains.
According to the news outlet, Kent was diagnosed with Ménière's Disease when she was 17 years old and contracted Lyme Disease at the age of 21. The former is an inner ear disorder that usually impacts one ear. It causes tinnitus (the ringing that randomly happens in our ears), dizziness, and sometimes feel like your ear is congested.
Mayo Clinic lists symptoms of Ménière's Disease as stated above including experiencing vertigo.
So, that explains the condition Daisy has been dealing with for quite some time, but luckily the cochlear implant has been really helpful. It allowed her to go on a date with Joey, even though sounds were often drowned out by the loud noises (helicopter and a music festival). She was a trooper, and I think it is safe to say Bachelor Nation is absolutely in love with Daisy...as is Joey.
Tune in to The Bachelor on Monday nights to see how Joey and Daisy's love journey continues on ABC at 8 PM EST!
