Annaliese Puccini Interview
Interviewer: When it comes to love, what are you looking for in a relationship with Arie?
Annaliese Puccini: I like somebody that has a creative flair and is appreciative of my creative self. Someone who is not rolling his eyes when I’m making a mask to go with my dress. I definitely want somebody who appreciates it, but balances me out.
Interviewer: You clearly knew Arie is known as the kissing bandit. Had you watched him on Emily’s season?
Annaliese Puccini: I watched parts of his season. My mom and my grandma are big fans of the show. I do remember liking him and thinking he’s cute and having positive vibes towards him. I didn’t know a lot about him, but I did some research. I was shocked when he was announced as the Bachelor, which I’m sure most people were, but then I was pleasantly surprised. I thought, you know, he is husband material. I am a think-into-the-future kind of person, so I like to see how my life might play out with different people.
Interviewer: Since your mom and your grandma watch the show, did they give you any advice going into this?
Annaliese Puccini: My grandma doesn’t know! She’ll be shocked when she sees me. She’ll be so excited!
Interviewer: Wow. So how are you going to explain not being in contact with her for a bit?
Annaliese Puccini: Well, I made a little care package for her. There’s a woman at a farmer’s market near me that sells these forever roses. They are real roses that are fresh and you can touch them, but they somehow are freeze-dried, so they stay forever looking like fresh roses. I got her a little pot of that, and I wrote her a letter that says I’m off on an adventure to find love. I said to my mom, “As soon as questions start to arise…send her the care package.” So it’s going to be a shock. She’ll be totally surprised.
Interviewer: Given that your grandma doesn’t know, what did your mom tell you before you went on the show?
Annaliese Puccini: She was just like, “You deserve this, and you’re ready. I’m so proud that you’re taking this step to find love.” I think she was just happy for me.
Interviewer: What are your non-negotiables in your next relationship, ideally with Arie?
Annaliese Puccini: That is not a question I have thought about! [Laughs] But as I get older, there are certain things that I can compromise on. I definitely want kids, so if somebody didn’t want kids, I think that would be a hard thing for me to stay in a relationship. And my last serious relationship was lacking the physical connection, so I feel like that is really important.
Interviewer: You painted a picture to give to Arie. [Ed note: You can see it in the video below.] Why?
Annaliese Puccini: I just wanted it to be something that he could always remember this journey. This is just something special that he can keep forever.
Interviewer: And aside from finding love, what are you looking forward to as part of your journey on the show?
Annaliese Puccini: I’m really excited to make friends, which I realize is probably not what the other girls might say. I just feel like it’s so hard to make friends as you get older. I’ve seen some of the friendships that have formed from past seasons, so I just am excited to meet the girls. I feel like they are probably amazing. Obviously there’s going to be competition, but I’m going to make some new friends too, which is awesome.
