Nick may be going after Kaitlyn from Chris’ season currently on ‘The Bachelorette’ — but it looks like now, he’s after Whitney Bischoff, Chris’ actual ex! The two were spotted together in Chicago getting cozy, and there’s pics to show it. So are they dating?
Chris Soules and Kaitlyn Bristowe, look away! On May 30, Nick Viall and Whitney Bischoff reportedly met up at Fox Bar inside Soho House in Chicago to watch the Blackhawks game. In case you forgot, the news that Whitney and Chris (who met on The Bachelor) had split broke just two days before on the 29th. And as for Nick, we just saw him arrive to The Bachelorette to fight for Kaitlyn on the June 6 episode! What is going on here?!
“Nick and a small group of friends arrived at 7:30 — and then Whitney joined them 15 minutes later,” an eyewitness told Star magazine. “The other friends moved off to let Nick and Whitney have some space together at their table. They were leaning into each other, chatting and laughing — Whitney’s high pitched laugh was hard to miss. She also made a point of lovingly stroking Nick’s knee while they talked.”
“They stayed that way for about two and a half hours before leaving together, with Whitney pulling her red Chicago Blackhawks cap down over her eyes, like she didn’t want to be recognized,” the insider added.”She stroked his knee as they sat close together for more than two house.”
Star also has exclusive photos of the pair together and if you’re not sure it’s Nick, he posted this photo on the same day to his Instagram wearing the exact outfit, at a sports bar for the Blackhawks game. As for Whitney, she posted a photo four days later on Instagram wearing the hat the woman in the pic is wearing. So we’re pretty sure it’s them — and well, they have a little bit in common?
Breaking It All Down
We’re not sure how these two would even meet, but apparently he’s got a thing for anyone who’s on the show. Here’s a little timeline, in case you needed reminding.
-Nick competed with Chris Soules for Andi Dorfman‘s heart on The Bachelorette. He was the runner up.
-Chris became the next Bachelor, where Kaitlyn landed in third place, and Whitney won Chris’ heart.
-Chris and Whitney broke it off on May 29.
-Nick showed up as a surprise on Kaitlyn’s season of The Bachelorette after a series of “explicit” texting that was going on while Chris’ season was on air.
And now this… so, who knows, but we’ll stay along for the ride. Do you think Whitney should date Nick?
