The Bachelor Nick Viall claims that when he was asked by ABC to be the Season 21 hunk, he didn't immediately say yes. After being rejected twice by The Bachelorette stars, Andi Dorfman (in 2014) and Kaitlyn Bristowe (in 2015) and Bachelor In Paradise's Amanda Stanton left him for Josh Murray, he wasn't sure he was ready to embrace love again on national television.

"Twice as many women applied to be on the show," an insider revealed to US Weekly.

"Women came out of the woodwork. An ex-wife if Nick's friend even tried out! Obviously, she didn't make the cut."

According to Corinne's friend, she has always been out of control. Apparently, she always had several boyfriends on the side as a teen.

Rachel Lindsay is Nick's obvious favorite. She used her brains to get Nick's attention and it worked. Rachel is a civil- litigation attorney who passed her bar exam on the very first try. Right now, she stands out as Nick's favorite, but that could change in the next few weeks.

According to Life & Style, Season 19's Chris Soules says that Nick seems really happy post filming. The Bachelor viewers speculated that meant that the reality TV star must have found love and things are going well for them.

The Bachelor fans, do you think Nick Viall is finally engaged? Who is your favorite pick for him?
