Nick Viall Wishes ‘Bachelorette’ Viewers A Happy July 4th With Another Shirtless Photo

On The Bachelorette, Nick Viall perhaps comes across as an unassuming, geeky sort of guy. He was obviously charming enough to become one of Andi Dorfman’s final two and to throw a wrench into Kaitlyn Bristowe’s season by having unscheduled romantic time. But Nick Viall has never been portrayed by the show as a beefcake.

If his social media feed is any indication, Viall would like that to change. On July 2, he posted a photo of himself drinking a cup of coffee. His caption failed to mention the obvious fact that he was shirtless and showing off an impressive torso. It was enough for Us Weekly to pick up the story, citing Viall’s “Surprisingly Hot Bod.”

But apparently Viall wasn’t satisfied with just one photo. He took to Twitter to wish his followers a happy Independence Day with another artistic pose.

And Nick wasn’t done there. Over on his Instagram account, Viall continued the flag-waving celebration.

He captioned this photo, “Bathing suits, fireworks, boats, bonfires, grilling, and of course patriotic underwear. Happy 4th everyone!!”

Nick Viall, of course, had a bit of help to look so good. His tweets included the Twitter handle of Chicago’s Gloss Photography Studios, whose official website identifies the photographer as Jaci Ruben. The photographer posted a link to an Instagram page that features more beefy shots of Viall, making reference to an immensely popular movie about male strippers.

So, will any of these images help Nick Viall become the next Bachelor? Of course, Viall is still in the running to win the final rose from Kaitlyn Bristowe. But his name has been mentioned as one of the men who might be the next to lead the series.

Bristowe recently said her choice for Bachelor would be another one of her current suitors, Ben Harper.

As for Nick Viall, he told his social media followers that he’ll be tuning into Bachelor in Paradise after reading a tweet from Us Weekly.

The Bachelorette airs Mondays on ABC.
