Danielle Maltby Opens Up About the Shared Experience of Loss with Michael Allio
Bachelor Nation fans first met Danielle Maltby on Season 21 of “The Bachelor,” and now she’s back on our screens for Season 8 of “Bachelor in Paradise.”
Danielle just stopped by the “Talking It Out with Bachelor Nation” podcast, where she discussed her connection with Michael Allio and their special bond.
Co-hosts Mike Johnson and Bryan Abasolo asked Danielle about her relationship with Michael and their shared experience of loss.
Danielle said that she immediately didn’t feel any shame around Michael and knew that they understood each other.
She said, “You can’t get it if you haven’t been in a situation like this. It’s a weird balance to feel so much nuance and layers to the grieving process and it’s different with every relationship. We just can’t judge people, especially those in these kinds of situations.”

Mike brought up the special lyric from Grace Potter’s song “Stars” that Danielle shared with Michael on “Paradise.”
The lyric is “I lit a fire with the love you left behind,” and Danielle shared what it means to her.
She said, “Music is so powerful and can really put you in a mood. When I was driving, I heard that song for the first time and I really felt the song everywhere in my body. That line specifically had me hooked immediately. It just felt like it truly honored everything that I felt in that moment of where I was and how far I’ve come and everything I still wanted to do with my life.”
Danielle said the lyric became a mantra for her when she fell into a deep depression after losing her fiancé.
So she decided to share it with Michael because she knew it would resonate with him too.
Danielle said, “It just really helped honor where I was and everything else that I still wanted to do.”
