No bitterness between exes here. Nick Viall may have a good amount of TV exes, but his second is wishing him the best. Kaitlyn Bristowe fell for Nick during her season but didn’t choose him in the end. So, how does she feel about him becoming the next bachelor?
“I’m happy for him!” Kaitlyn Bristowe, 31, told Us Weekly. “Everyone deserves to find someone. I hope it works out.” Of course, Kaitlyn is Nick Viall‘s second ex from The Bachelorette, and they had quite the chemistry when he starred on her season. He came in midway through the season to fight for Kaitlyn during season 11, but he ended up losing to Shawn Booth, and Nick was completely torn.
This was the second second-place for Nick, who originally appeared on Andi Dorfman‘s season where he also made it to the final rose, but lost to his nemesis, Josh Murray. Nick and Josh came face to face again on Bachelor in Paradise but while Josh found love with Amanda (after she hooked up with Nick, mind you), Nick’s fling with Jen apparently doesn’t work out.
“I’ve made my mistakes. I’ve had an interesting process through this journey, and it hasn’t worked so far,” Nick said on After Paradise after the big announcement on Aug. 30. “Hopefully, things will end up on a more positive note. I’m definitely ready for it — I’m really excited. I couldn’t be more excited about the possibility of it working out.”
He also revealed he’s looking for “someone who is confident and knows their own self-worth… and somebody who makes me a better person and challenges me and isn’t afraid to give as much as I like to.” Well, that won’t be too difficult, right?
HollywoodLifers, are you happy that Nick’s the bachelor?
