Oh, Nick Viall. How could we forgot you? You were the bad boy runner-up from Andi Dorfman’s season of The Bachelorette, but you really made your impression on fans when you dropped a bomb during the “After the Final Rose Special.” Nick let all of America know that he and Andi had sex on their fantasy suite date, much to the shock of everyone. Looks like Nick had some more tricks up his sleeve because now he’s the newest contestant on Kaitlyn Bristowe’s season of The Bachelorette…and we have the scoop on what he brings to this already crazy season.
1. Kaitlyn and Nick have been talking for a while.
According to Reality Steve, the authority on all things Bachelor and Bachelorette related, Kaitlyn and Nick had a flirtatious relationship before Nick joined The Bachelorette 2015. While Kaitlyn admits to the guys that she had contact with Nick before the show, Reality Steve insists that there’s a lot more that “a little contact”, explaining, “Kaitlyn and Nick talked ALL THE TIME while Chris’ season was airing. He made it known he was into her, and she was well aware he was into her. Their relationship was much more than a few texts and emails. These two were Facetiming a lot in the weeks leading up to her leaving for The Bachelorette.” They even met in person, according to the Inquistr, which claimed that Nick traveled to L.A. early this year when Kaitlyn was preparing to film The Bachelorette, and there is speculation that he convinced the show’s producers to let him spend time alone with Kaitlyn before filming got underway. He also dropped this little hint of his affection on Instagram.
2. His appearance on the show shocked no one (except the other contestants).
We totally believe Reality Steve when he says Nick’s being on the show was completely planned. He says, “Nick had already told work before Kaitlyn’s season started filming he was going to be gone, he was just waiting for the call from producers on when he was gonna show up. So I’m sure this episode will make it seem like, on a whim, Nick just decided to fly NY (wait, how would he know where they were?) and ask to be on the show. All bullshit. This was planned in advance by producers and Nick that he was going to be on the season, it was just a matter of when he was going to appear. Kaitlyn couldn’t possibly have been that surprised when she saw him in NY.” Kaitlyn was well aware that Nick would be showing up.
3. Nick is the one that Kaitlyn has sex with on the show.
Yup, Nick and Kaitlyn have sex. On the promo of the 2015 season, we see Kaitlyn admitting to the contestants that she had sex with one of the guys. We also see one of the guys with his face blurred running across the lawn naked after what seems to be a romp in the sack with Kaitlyn. According to Reality Steve, Nick Viall is that contestant.
4. He makes it to the final two.
According to Reality Steve, Nick Viall and Shawn Booth are Kaitlyn’s final two suitors. We don’t want to spoil absolutely everything, so we won’t tell you who the winner is. You’ll just have to wait and see.
