I am surprised how quickly some of you forget how Clare was vilified for the Juan Pablo’s incident, that you are now glorifying Nick for his. I am not a part of the bachelor/bachelorette franchise nor do I know anyone who had particpated in the show. While I do not believe in this norm of modernists culture or behavior related to co-habitation and SEX, I am a realist and know’s that as adults we are all responsible for our own moral conduct, and are answerable for our individual behavior. Nick cannot be vindicated, he is just as responsible for his weakness of the flesh. Fornication is fornication irrespective of the participants, and if you step out after marriage, it is infidelity or adultery. There is no exclusion for fiance or someone you think you are going to be engaged to in the bible or in any religious book to my knowledge.
Recently retired from a managerial position, there are seminars managers and executives must attend including “Behavioral Management” and there is no room for a slip of the tongue in the board room. Nick is not an incompetent nincompoop, but an intelligent calculating well read executive whose intention to win cloud his judgement. He had a stratigic plan which back fired on him. He was the one sneaking out to snitch on his fellow competitors to Andi so much so that the men called him a snake, and he proved to be just that. He already had one broken engagement and he was determined to win. What did he mean when he stated to another competitor that “ENOUGH IS ENOUGH WITH THIS GOOD GUY ROUTINE? it was evident then, that he was up to something and was in no way being honest.
According to Emily and Ali on E! News, Nick asked to speak with Andi, and wanted it on camera to which she declined. What happened to respect for self and others? What happened to moral concience? A gentleman would never have been so spiteful. I am not impressed by his calculating solemn demeanor at the finale. When a man or woman say to the other, “I am sorry but this is not going to work” before a solid relationship develops, that should be enough. What is there to close? especially if the other party already made a choice to move on. With the support of family and friends, we move on, mend our broken heart and look to the future. Decency prevents us from going on the attack. What ever Nick had for Andi was not genuine. Using the world as his stage to humiliate, stir up controversy and public opinion makes him a cad. This show goes beyond America. I wonder what the girl whose heart he broke is saying now. God help the next woman to cross his path.

Well. If the roles where reversed. I’m sure people would be all over the guy for leading the girl on. Now it is the other way around and people are blaming the guy? Really

I’m tired of hearing him being labelled as a stalker, and reading “get over it.” The difference between relationships off camera and bachelorette/bachelor relationships is that typically there’s some indication that the relationship is failing- fighting, coolness, maybe the two have talked about it or whatever. In this situation, how can you fault him for wanting answers and seeking closure when, from his perspective, the relationship is wonderful and headed towards a potential engagement all the way up until she says, “Nope, adios.” And now that we’re aware, her adios came 24 hours after sleeping with him. I’m not a prude, and no, I don’t think she should be “slut shamed”- she can have sex with a million partners for all anyone cares. I don’t think having sex is the problem- I think the deception and pretense with which she did it is the issue. If your partner is going to be a one-night stand, a casual affair, fine- tell them and give them to option to choose if that’s something they want and are emotionally capable of. But don’t imply and drop hints that you’re thinking long term and that you have strong feelings for them. Did she really need to get laid so bad that she had to lie to him to get it? I think her cold, defensive demeanor was more a symptom of her own guilty feelings than anything to do with Nick.
And Josh- wow, yeah, it really does surprise me that he’d just go with the flow and be so nonchalant about this if it’s not just a free ticket to fame. He’s an attractive guy, seems nice enough- I’m pretty sure he could find a woman who had all of the qualities he’s looking for and who wouldn’t sleep with one guy all the while mentally picking out her wedding dress with another. Really, she’s not all that- she looks like she has a perpetual scowl and from what I’ve seen on tv, which granted, isn’t a complete portrayal, she seems pretty petty and fake.

Nick Viall nice person -slip of the tongue about their exchange. Perhaps Andi should’ve spoken to him prior as he had requested, perhaps at least on the phone. Perhaps then the outcome would be different for her and him. Nick seems to be smart.

Nick Viall the good guy deserved respectful treatment from the Bachelorette. I would like to see him as the Bachelor at one point. I think he is intelligent and kind. Perhaps PDD-NOS?

The only places that call out Nick as a villain are likely those backed by the Bachelorette franchise / ABC, because they’re trying to save Andi’s reputation. This isn’t about the fact that she had sex or about slut-shaming….this is about how she totally used someone with complete disregard for that person’s feelings. She is the real villain in all this.

I totally agree! I feel like this season actually became about Nick in the end. “Will he get his heart broken? Is he really playing games or are the guys just jealous?” Nothing that Nick did was wrong. He had an open heart and Andi sorely wounded it. Why was she so cold to him? She acted the entire time like he was going to be the one in the end, and then suddenly she shuts the door and cuts off all ties. What kind of heartless person does that? I know this is slightly inappropriate to bring up, but remember when Eric said that he felt like she was “acting”, well maybe he was right. She blatantly lied to Nick the entire time, not with her words, but with her actions. In the end, she chooses the once pro-baseball player who has a soon-to-be superstar brother… Now it seems clear where her head and heart weren’t lining up.

Why is everyone getting so worked up about Nick’s revelation?! Come on – let’s get real! All of America knows what goes on in the Fantasy Suite – let’s not pretend to be so innocent and naive!! Andi treated Nick despicably! She knew how much NIck loved her, but that she was intending to pick Josh. Still on their final date, she told Nick, “Don’t worry, everything will work out!” If that isn’t a hint that she plans to pick him, then nothing is!! And when Nick gave her the necklace with sand from the beach where he first told her he loved her, why did she put it on?! Another indication that she was returning his feelings. I totally lost all respect for her that night!!!!

What is up with Josh to be OK with this behavior from the woman that professes that she loved him from the day she laid eyes on him. What guy can live with a girl knowing your competition got your girl first the night before you did? Does he need his 15 minutes so bad, since he really didn’t find it as a pro baseball player, who by the way was only a minor league player never good enough to play a single game in the major leagues? His batting average of .175 is amazing he was even a minor league player.

I’m sorry but I don’t think Nick did anything wrong. Andi is a cold-hearted woman whose morals are questionable. She thought it was a low-blow because she knows that sleeping with two guys (but telling all of us that it’s always been josh and she never loved Nick) is the actions of a loose woman. That wasn’t a low-blow, it was truth. Moreover, her reaction to Nick was despicable. She was acting like he’s done something wrong and he didn’t. He is man who was badly hurt by her and she refused to speak to him? Badly done, Andi…badly done. He deserved better than that. Especially since he was the sincere one. I don’t buy the stuff Josh said. He’s extraordinarily good looking and charming so I could see the draw to him but I wouldn’t categorize him as sincere. All of Andi’s actions will come back and bite her. You can’t treat people the way she treated Nick and not have karma come back.

Didn’t like Nick from the get go…. Why would he still want to be with someone who didn’t want to continue the relationship and told him so face to face. Needs to get over himself!!! Andi being the way she was towards him was the only way he was going to get the message….he asked for it and he got it.

I also think it’s unfair that Nick makes one slip, and he’s treated like a monster. And somehow that one not-so-great moment is supposed to overshadow the way she treated him, the curt way she dumped him, the ugly behavior of refusing to speak to him to provide him closure, that horrible bored, cool demeanor she had towards him at the “After the fina rose…”, and the awful way she spoke to him. Sheesh. If that had been a guy that did all those things Andi did, all these samepeople would stand up and cheer if a girl had “exposed” something that could be uflattering. And he didn’t look at all like he was being vindictive, or trying to make her look bad. He 100% looked like a poor, confused, heartbroken dude that’s been going over the situation and just wanted some answers so he could properly deal. Another courtesy that would be granted to a girl in his position. yet he’s the jerk. poor guy

I don’t know how everyone keep playing Nick as the bad guy-what reality are all these people living in. In the real world what man like Josh would ever in a million years want to marry a woman who had sex with a man in a fantasy suite on a tv reality show the day before she slept with Josh in another fantasy suite and then a week later get engaged! Come on people no self respecting woman or man would put up with this and what a lousy way to start an engagement. The only kind of guy or girl who would think this is okay is one who is so sleazy themselves they think nothing of this as they would do the same thing and sex isn’t all that meaningful. maybe to nick he doesn’t sleep around all the time and in his mind a woman going on a tv reality show wouldn’t sleep with him unless she really loved him and wanted him–my goodness who wants their parents and family knowing they had sex in fantasy suites on a tv show! Come on!

Poor Nick is all I say or poor any man or woman who has sex in fantasy suites while the bachelor/bachelorette has sex three nights in row with diff contestants and then breaks up right after.

Then again if someone is stupid enough to go on the show and have sex on a tv show then maybe that’s what happens when you do that and you knew the risk when you went on the show!

Nick IS a bad guy. That’s why he keeps getting dumped. It was not necessary to tell what he and Andu did in private. He just wanted ore air time. He has shown over and over that he is a pouty kid that brags to the other guys . He didn’t tell that to get back at Andu, he was throwing it in the other guys face! He has a mean spirit and really wanted to see Andi to offend her! Any girl that wants him is in real trouble! He’s mean spirited

He tried to meet with her twice in private. It was HER choice to make their only meeting public. He had questions, she knew it…she should have at least taken a phone call…the whole mess could have been avoided.

She gave him an explanation face to face when she let him go…he knew the situation they were in and should have been man enough to accept it and not be such a cry baby asking her take him back.

Guess what, Nick. I think that the fact Andi is being called a slut on national TV is not fair. But there is no taking it back now. Sometimes we hurt people around us even though we have the best intentions.
I’m pretty sure the producers wanted their conversation on camera, it’s a reality TV gold, obviously. Also totally understand that Andi didn’t want to meet Nick before the ATFR. His letter made it pretty clear that he didn’t just want to talk to her because of closure, but to get her back.

Opinions, everyone has one. Here’s mine. Andi told Nick he wasn’t the one because he over analysed everything. She didn’t want to spend her life like that. Here he is trying to analyze why he wasn’t chosen. Andi has a profession where she has to analyze every piece of evidence. Who in their right mind would want to carry that over to their personal life? That doesn’t mean Nick is a bad guy. It just means he wasn’t right for Andi. He should not have brought up the fact they slept together. That is not what a gentleman does. Since he did, maybe she didn’t chose him because he wasn’t that good in bed. If that was the case, she didn’t throw him under the bus. Some things should remain private even when your feelings are hurt.

Lets say the tides were turned and Nick had slept with Andi and then left her the next day? Would Nick still be the bad guy? Absolutely! I honestly don’t believe he should be labeled as the villain. Andy should not have to slept with him, she obviously knew she was going to pick Josh plain and simple.

I totally agree. It is a double standard, because everyone would feel bad for a woman if she was on national television looking like Nick was. He just wanted answers for closure. The man tried to talk to her twice with no success. The finale was his only chance to get answers. She was so nonchalant about how he was feeling. She thought enough of Chris not to subject him to all that unnecessary hurt.

I would not say he is a bad guy.But it was wrong of him to bring it up after she chosed the other guy.It looked like he was getting back at her for not choosing him.

From what i can see there are few people who do blame Nick for saying what he did. I don’t know where people get their information from, but most sites are on Nicks side. He did nothing wrong and deserves every bit of happiness. Although Nick does not like people speaking bad of Andi, the truth is she is not a nice person. She was exactly what Eric (RIP) had said she was. I don’t have any respect for her and if you look on Andi’s instagram you will see that she sent a message to Josh’s brother back in 2013 about how he friended her father and made his decade. He is a huge fan of the football team that Josh’s brother played for in College. It all seems a little strange to me. I don’t think she picked Josh for love either. I know she said she didn’t pick Nick because he over- thought everything, but Josh was like talking to a 16 year old boy. I would think she would want more depth than that. Andi wanted fame as much as Josh did. She quit her job right after the show ended so she could work in the entertainment business.
