Nick Viall was the runner-up for the Andi Dorman season, and now he’s heading onto the 2015 season of The Bachelorette with Kaitlyn Bristowe. Some may find it a little bit strange that he’s being brought onto the show, but Kaitlyn believes she made the right decision and completely defends Nick coming into this season.
Please let it be known that there are possible spoilers ahead for the current season of The Bachelorette. If you don’t want to know them, stop reading now.
Per Classicalite, Kaitlyn says that she and Nick actually had a relationship (friendship) that never once seemed romantic. She says that they were just friends, and it wasn’t until she was chosen to be the lead on The Bachelorette that Nick thought about it and wanted to date her.
“We had a friendship before I came on and had that chance of being theBachelorette, and we had talked a lot and had this connection that we both only understood as a friendship.
“After I was gone, I guess he was missing that friendship and thinking maybe it was more than just a friendship connection.”
Kaitlyn did say that many of the contestants on The Bachelorette were “confused, shocked, some were really supportive.” That was just a few of them though, and the majority of the other guys on the show “were not impressed.”
E! Online says that a source of theirs had a specific reason why Nick Viall ended up coming back to the show and to Kaitlyn.
“He decided he wanted to do the show and pursue her. His attitude was, you only have one life. But he weighed the decision seriously. There was a lot of deliberating. If she had started to develop feelings for someone else, he didn’t want to ruin it for her. He genuinely cares for her and wants her to be happy.”
Now, the real question is, how much of an impact is Nick Viall going to make on the 2015 season of The Bachelorette? If you’re really curious, you can check out the full spoilers for all the Rose Ceremony eliminations this season.
It’s going to be interesting this for the week four episode (number five overall) of The Bachelorette as the guys battle it out in a rap-off, and they get some extra competition in Nick Viall. Kaitlyn Bristowe isn’t ashamed of him being on the show and says that her reasons are legit, but that doesn’t mean the guys have to like them.
