When Whitney Bischoff (Chris Soules’ ex) and Nick Viall (Andi Dorfman’s ex, now Kaitlyn Bristowe’s suitor) were spotted getting cozy together at a bar, rumors started swirling that they were totally into each other — but we have the whole story.
Nick Viall is currently causing drama on The Bachelorette, where he returned to try and win over Kaitlyn Bristowe. After competing on Andi Dorfman‘s season, how did he meet Kaitlyn? And what about Whitney Bischoff? The two were spotted together just two days after she announced her split from Chris Soules, and the reports claimed that the two were totally feeling eachother. So was she using him as a rebound? HollywoodLife.com has the scoop.
“Whitney and Nick met through the show and are friends, but that’s it,” an insider close to the pair told HollywoodLife.com exclusively. “Whitney knows better than to jump into a rebound relationship. Plus, it’s not like that between her and Nick.”
To refresh your memory, the two were spotted watching the Blackhawks game together on May 30 in Chicago, and Star got the photos top prove it. However, we’ve now discovered that Nick actually “reached out to her when he found out that she and Chris called off their engagement,” our source added. They also pointed out that while he has been “a good friend” to Whitney, there aren’t any benefits tacked onto that.
Of course we’re a little relieved to hear that, since that would be the third woman he had gone after from the show. On the June 15 episode, he finally moves in with the majority of the guys and joins the game — and let’s just say, it’s not really going to go too well for the other guys. The chemistry between Nick and Kaitlyn is undeniable, but is it fair? Let us know your thoughts!
