So a few days ago, I had this crazy idea… This crazy idea turned into one of the most fun weekends EVER. Welcome to the Dani Austin version of The Bachelor 😍 My brother Landon was gonna be in town, and I just thought – why not play matchmaker?! 😏 After all, I have the coolest girls on the internet in my corner! Landon’s 32, single, loves spending time with family and friends, and has a pretty freakin cute dog. Oh, and he’s a professional musician and entrepreneur! I asked him if he’d be down for a few blind dates, and the journey to find love began ❤️
First Up: Application Time!
I had y’all send in application videos Bachelor/Bachelorette style. We got HUNDREDS of submissions within a day! 🤯 It was seriously so ridiculously hard to narrow it down. We only had time for three dates, but I might be reaching out to a few of y’all to see if you just wanna be friends LOL! Seriously, I applaud every single one of you who reached out and made yourself vulnerable. We picked three finalists, reached out, and confirmed them.
Secondly: Game Plan.
We’re talking white boards. We’re talking date cards. We’re talking the whole shebang. I planned three dates – morning, afternoon, and evening. We also had to help Landon out with what to wear! We got him professionally styled and ready to shoot his shot with these lovely ladies! Last but not least, none other than Tayshia, Hannah G, Connor S. and Chris Harrison HIMSELF sent Landon messages of support to cheer him on! All of #bachelornation got in on this y’all 😘
For date number one, Landon and Regina met at a park, drank mimosas, and wrote a song together! At the end, they had to perform it for us 😂 For date number two, Landon and Mary went ice skating together and had some time to just talk! And for date number three, Landon and Peyton got a nice dinner together and some quality time. Honestly, I can write about it here but if you haven’t watched, you HAVE to. It’s so much better to see it all go down yourself! So before I tell you what happened, here’s your chance to stop scrolling and go see for yourself (there are two Bachelor highlights and a couple of videos)!
Landon had to pick ONE girl to bring home to meet mama (and the rest of the Austins 😏). He was legitimately stressing so hardcore over this! All of the dates went super well and each girl is so so special, but in the end, Landon had to follow his heart, and it led him to…
Peyton came over and met the fam! We all got to know each other a little better and it was so crazy fun. I am a HUGE Peyton fan – like I really am lol. I might ask her to hang out since she’s here in Dallas…but in the meantime.
THEY’RE IN NASHVILLE!!!
Peyton flew back to Nashville with Landon for a day or so! 😱 Can you believe?!? I’m good y’all. I’m GOOD. Peyton’s staying at a hotel tonight and tomorrow Landon’s gonna show her around town. I’m dying for updates so hopefully I’ll get some to share with y’all soon.
Who knew that Landon might really find love this weekend?! If you’ve been following along I hope you’ve had fun and this has encouraged you to get out of your comfort zone a little! Here’s Landon’s Spotify profile if you want to check out his music!
XOXO Dani aka MATCHMAKER
