Is Viall turning out to be the worse Bachelor star ever?
“They find him to be completely arrogant and a total diva,” one insider told the outlet, explaining how a few contestants have even asked to leave the competition early.
In addition to being arrogant, some of the ladies don’t think Viall is on the show to find true love.
“A lot of the girls think Nick isn’t taking the process seriously, that he only became The Bachelor to hook up with multiple women.”
Things got so bad between Viall and the contestants that the majority of the finalists thought about leaving before the rose ceremony. The backlash also made Vial overly emotional and contributed to his breakdowns this season.
“Three out of the final four girls have been thinking about quitting the show since the beginning,” the source added. “Nick sheds many tears this season and it’s due to the fact that they girls pretty much turn on him. There will be explosive fights – and Nick will once again look like a fool.”
According to Celeb Dirty Laundry, fans have long speculated that Viall cares more about gaining personal fame than finding a worthwhile relationship. Indeed, Viall was cast as the villain during his stints on The Bachelorette and only recently turned things around when he appeared on Bachelor in Paradise.
If Viall is only on the show to sleep with women, then it won’t be long before the truth comes out. Furthermore, there’s little chance that Viall hands out his final rose to anyone who wants to start a real relationship. Whatever the truth, it’s clear that Viall is struggling to adjust.
Production for The Bachelor has entered the final stages. The International Business Times is reporting that the hometown dates just wrapped, which means Viall is down to his final four suitors.
The identity of the finalists is still unknown, although there’s a good chance that Rachel Lindsay, the winner of Viall’s first impression rose, made it to the final four. Raven Gates is another rumored finalist, but nothing is for certain at this point.
As fans will recall, Viall made his first appearance on national TV competing for Andi Dorfman’s heart on The Bachelorette. After coming in second, Viall returned the following season and found himself as the runner-up to Kaitlyn Bristowe’s final rose.
Reality TV World reports that Viall made a third appearance in ABC’s dating franchise during Season 3 of Bachelor in Paradise. Things were looking up for Viall when he hit it off with Jen Saviano. However, the two decided to part ways on the season finale just prior to Viall landing the lead role on The Bachelor.
Nick Viall later admitted that things fell apart with Saviano because he was afraid of getting hurt in front of the cameras once more. Even still, some fans speculated that he dumped Saviano in order to star on The Bachelor and have his pick at a wider pool of women.
Despite the negative rumors about Viall, host Chris Harrison recently shared a few photos of Viall on social media. He even called the Bachelor star “a really good guy” and praised him for doing “a good job.”
Will Viall find love this time around, or is he doomed to fall short yet again?
During an interview with People, Viall couldn’t have been more optimistic at his chances of finding love. He may have failed three times in the past, but Viall went into this season confident that he’d find a mate.
“I’m hopeful I’ll find someone to spend the rest of my life with,” Viall told the outlet. “I couldn’t be more excited to find that amazing connection.”
“I don’t want to pick someone because they’re the last woman standing. My biggest fear isn’t necessarily getting my heart broken. It’s not finding the right one.”
Viall has a lot of experience going on dates but admitted that fantasy dates are not a top priority this season. Instead, Viall is looking to engage his suitors in more intimate settings.
“It’s fun to be on an adventure date, but sometimes there is less communication and to me that’s the biggest focus,” Viall admitted. “I’m sure the dates will be a lot of fun. But I didn’t want to be the Bachelor so I could go bungee jumping!”
Whatever happens between Viall and his suitors, he isn’t regretful for anything that’s happened on the show in the past. Indeed, Viall admitted that he’s “actually really happy with the way things played out.”
Hopefully, he’ll be able to say the same thing after The Bachelor.
Fans can watch Nick Viall in action when Season 20 of The Bachelor premieres on ABC in January.
