Bachelor in Paradise returns for a third season next month, and hopefully, the third time is a charm for contestant Nick Viall. He is back to find love on TV after getting dumped by not one, but two Bachelorette stars — Andi Dorfman and Kaitlyn Bristowe.
According to ABC, Nick will appear on the Bachelor in Paradise Season 3 premiere on August 2 alongside 14 former Bachelor and Bachelorette castoffs. Throughout the season, 15 more single guys and girls will show up at the Playa Escondida Resort in Sayulita, Mexico, hoping to find love.
Will Nick Viall finally find love or return home single again? Here’s a look at what’s in store for Nick during his stay in Paradise.
[Warning: Bachelor in Paradise Season 3 spoilers ahead]
Nick will appear in Episode 1 along with the initial cast that includes Amanda Stanton, Sarah Herron, twins Haley and Emily Ferguson, Lace Morris, Jubilee Sharpe, Izzy Goodkind, Carly Waddell, Chad Johnson, Evan Bass, Grant Kemp, Daniel Maguire, Vinny Ventiera, and Jared Haibon.
According to Reality Steve, Nick’s first date will be with Leah Block from Ben Higgins’ season of The Bachelor. This will be his only date with her, mostly because he’s Nick and there’s a buffet of attractive women to date this season.
During the first episode, Nick also has a date with Amanda Stanton, the single mom who was eliminated after hometowns on Ben’s season. Unfortunately for Nick, his relationship with Amanda doesn’t last longer than one episode.
Spoilers point to Nick giving his rose to Amanda at the first rose ceremony, but his relationship with her doesn’t go much further.
According to ET Online, Josh Murray, the guy who beat Nick out for the final rose on Andi Dorfman’s season of The Bachelorette, arrives on the second episode of Bachelor in Paradise.
Spoilers reveal that Josh takes Amanda on a date that eventually leads to an engagement on the season finale.
What will Nick do? Find another girl to date, of course. With new girls throughout the season, Nick has a number of ladies to choose from in Paradise, but Reality Steve states that he focuses his attention on one girl starting with Episode 3.
Jen Saviano, who appeared on Ben’s season of The Bachelor, arrives in Episode 3, and the 25-year-old Florida native quickly captures Nick’s attention.
Nick takes Jen out on a date on Episode 3 and gives her a rose — and that is not the last one he hands out to the brunette beauty.
According to Reality Steve, Nick and Jen exchange roses for the rest of the season and end up as one of the final five couples on the third season of Bachelor in Paradise.
In addition to Nick and Jen, fans will see the following couples make it to the finale, where they must decide to stay together or break up and leave the show — Josh and Amanda, Grant and Lace, Evan and Carly, and Wells and Ashley I.
Although Steve states that Nick and Jen decide to spend the night in the Fantasy Suite on the season finale, they are not one of the three couples who get engaged on Bachelor in Paradise.
Instead, they decide to break up before the end of the show, but Steve indicates that it may have something to do with the fact that Jen lives in Florida and Nick lives in California.
“Their breakup I’m hearing was amicable, and judging by each of their social media accounts, it seems like they’re somewhat still in contact. When the process of this show basically forces a couple to ‘stay together or break up,’ and you have a couple that’s known each other for about 10 days you can see why a decision was made to break up.”
Watch ABC’s Bachelor in Paradise Season 3 premiere at 8 p.m. ET on August 2, one day after Bachelorette star JoJo gives out her final rose.
