The newest season of The Bachelor is only a couple of months away and from what we’re hearing, it definitely predicts a very dramatic series. Maybe this really will be “the most dramatic season yet” of The Bachelor. After all, we already knew we were in for some craziness when Nick Viall was announced as the guy who will be handing out the roses.
Chris Harrison, the host of The Bachelor, recently went on ON With Mario Lopez and discussed the upcoming show. Harrison backed up Viall and related that he was doing great as the titular suitor. Harrison said, “I know people were a little reluctant, and they’re giving him a hard time… He’s a good man – he’s a really good guy. And he’s doing a great job.” We have to agree with Harrison here. We might have rooted against Viall during The Bachelorette (both seasons…), but it’s not like he’s truly some kind of villain. Viall may not even have been our first choice but we know that he’ll do a good job. At the very least, he’ll definitely help to make the new season super interesting.
Harrison didn’t stop the revelations there. He let it slip that Viall had a breakdown over something during production of the show, which they are currently still filming. Harrison told Lopez, “If you know what a Mesnick is, I will let you know that he pulled a full Mesnick. There will be man tears on this season for sure.” Harrison is referring to Jason Mesnick, who was the Bachelor in season 13. Mesnick completely broke down after sending contestant Molly Malaney (whom he would later go on to marry) home.
We’re dying to know what could have caused Viall to have this kind of a reaction. Guess we’ll have to contain our excitement until January when The Bachelor premieres.
