It may have been only two years since Nick Viall made his first Bachelorette appearance, but he's easily become a Bachelor nation legend. After making it to the final two in two consecutive seasons and getting rejected in the finale by both Andi Dorfman and Kaitlyn Bristowe, I'm pretty sure no one deserves to find love more than this guy. But even though some people would be disheartened by that experience, it doesn't seem like it's changed his outlook on the world at all. So what has Nick been doing since Kaitlyn's season of The Bachelorette ? He's been a pretty busy dude.
And just in case you were worried he hasn't moved on from his Bachelorette experience, he totally has. He hasn't let those public rejections get him down, so can we get this man an award or his own season of The Bachelor or something?! If you aren't following him on Twitter and Instagram, you need to be... and not just because of the modeling pics he shares. It seems like his life is really awesome these days, and it's fun to follow along with his adventures on social media.
Here's what Nick's been up to over the past year. Not gonna lie — I'm pretty jealous.
He's On Bachelor In Paradise
And if we're being honest, it's the number one reason I'm excited to watch this season. Even though Nick he's made two stabs at The Bachelorette, I had a feeling he couldn't stay away, and I'm so glad he was right. I can't wait to see him in action in paradise!
He Still Hangs Out With His Bachelor Nation Pals
Like, all the time. If you follow him on Instagram, you already know he's also frequently with Chris Soules and Ben Higgins, which is a group I definitely want to join.
And Cute Kids
Can we talk about how adorable this is, though? If you're going to be patriotic, this is the way to do it.
He's Kept His Sense Of Humor About Everything
Actually, his Twitter is almost always funny. Follow him. I mean it.
And He's Been Watching The Bachelorette
But aren't we all? It's really interesting to read his opinions about this season, though, since he's experienced the whole thing firsthand. And yes, in case you were wondering, he was a total fan of Chad.
He Even Mended Fences With Shawn Booth
No word on whether or not they're legit besties, but this photo is enough for me.
If you need me, I'll be counting down the days 'til Bachelor in Paradise premieres next month. I can't wait to see Nick and Chris Harrison back in action again, roses and all.
