Last night, After Paradise dropped a huge unexpected bombshell on Bachelor Nation when hosts Michelle Collins and Sean Lowe revealed that The Bachelor’s next leading man will be Bachelorette veteran, Nick Viall.
“I’m very excited,” Nick said about his upcoming gig. “I’m more nervous!”
Usually, ABC chooses a runner up from the previous season of The Bachelor/The Bachelorette to star in next one. But for season 21 of The Bachelor (how has there already been 21?!), producers decided to give two-time Bachelorette runner up, and current Bachelor In Paradise contestant Nick Viall his umpteenth shot at love.
Spoiler alert: things probably won’t work out with Nick and Jen Saviano on Bachelor In Paradise next week…
