The premiere of The Bachelor is only one week away, but Nick Viall is already opening up about what to expect this season. While he claimed that the fantasy suites were guaranteed to see some action, he also said that he wasn’t convinced he was going to find love on the show. But in his latest interview with People magazine, Viall dropped a bombshell: he wound up falling in love with multiple women.
“As the Bachelor, all eyes are on you,” he confessed to People. “It’s certainly nerve-racking. The process was as hard as I thought it would be — a lot of highs and lows.”
“There are things I like to keep personal but at the same time, I think one [that] you’ll see throughout is that I wanted all the women to feel incredibly comfortable and empowered to ask me whatever they wanted to ask me and know that I would give them an honest answer and that it would be a two-way street,” he continued. “I wanted to encourage that the entire season.”
He also said that he wanted every relationship to “feel mutual.”
“I wanted us to be on the same playing field and both be just as empowered as the other person,” he explained. “I wanted to have an authentic relationship and that was something that was very important to me.”
Clearly things got deep, which in turn led to Viall admitting that he developed “strong feelings for multiple women.”
“It’s truly amazing,” he said. “I felt a lot of different feelings.”
He continued, “Early on with so many women, you obviously don’t know a lot of things about them but talking to all of them and wanting to make it meaningful to all of them is very physically taxing. And then as time goes on, it becomes more emotionally taxing and less physically taxing. And you get to know these women, there’s a level of respect. You’re asking them to do things they’ve never been able to do and to face stressful situations and their fears.”
