Uh-oh! Lauren Himle isn’t interested in seeing her ‘Bachelor In Paradise’ co-star, Nick Viall get a fourth shot at love. After it was announced that Nick would headline ‘The Bachelor Season 21,’ Lauren totally blasted him for the way he treated her friend! See everything she had to say here!
No, Lauren, 25, isn’t bitter about the results of season 3 of Bachelor Paradise. Actually, she’s more upset with the way Nick, 35, treated her friend, Jen Saviano, 26. Lauren joined Detroit’s Ticket radio station to share some final thoughts about Nick.
“I am not a big fan of [Viall],” Himle said of Jen, who she competed with for Ben Higgins‘, 28, affections on season 20 of The Bachelor. “He dated my great friend Jen on Bachelor in Paradise … but it was my understanding that they were still seeing each other after the show completed.” And to Lauren’s knowledge, she believed that Jen and Nick were “still together in a relationship,” leading into the Paradise season 3 finale on ABC this Sept. 2016. In fact, Lauren was even under the impression that their relationship was going perfectly until Nick was re-casted in the match-making competition.
“Jen is one of the smartest people I know, and she picks up on the bulls–t — her and I are both pretty good at picking up on guys’ game,” Lauren said. “She knew that he was kind of manipulating her towards the end. This just happened. They were solid a week ago. … It’s fresh.” And Lauren doesn’t think he will be able to do any better. “I think he is going to have a hard time finding someone better than Jen,” she added.

Despite Lauren’s harsh words, Nick is definitely getting another chance at romance. It was announced on Sept. 2, that he would be headlining the 21st season of The Bachelor. While the news may have been a huge surprise to Bachelor Nation, Nick just says that he feels fortunate to go on this journey for true happiness age.
As for his relationship with Jen, the two-time Bachelorette runner-up has yet to comment on what happened between the two. Jen, on the other hand, was a little more vocal about the unhappy endings. After it was revealed that Nick would be stepping up to lead The Bachelor, Jen took to Twitter to share a gif of Amy Schumer chugging a huge glass of wine. “About that “AfterParadise,” she captioned the gif. Something tells us she isn’t too happy about that one.
So we already know how this love story turned out. But the season 3 finale of Bachelor in Paradise airs on ABC Tuesday, Sept. 6, at 8 p.m. ET. And stay tuned for The Bachelor, which returns to ABC in early 2017.
