Before 'The Bachelor,' Liz & Nick Had A Relationship, Putting Her A Step Ahead Of The Competition

When you're a contestant on The Bachelor, it's absolutely essential to get in every possible minute with the leading man if you want falling in love (and that gorgeous Neil Lane ring) to be a possibility for either of you, but what if the clock started running before filming even began? That's exactly what Liz, one of Nick Viall's contestants is dealing with right now, and it's too soon to tell whether or not it'll work in her favor. On Monday, his season premiere aired, and after the limo arrivals pointed out his history with a certain woman, you're probably wondering if Nick and Liz had sex before The Bachelor. The answer? Even though it's none of our business, they were pretty blunt about what happened.

Before Liz even stepped out of that limo, she was forthcoming about how she knows Nick. According to the 29-year-old Vegas native, she met Nick for the first time when she was Jade Roper's maid of honor at her wedding to Tanner Tolbert earlier this year. Later that wedding night, she met Nick and she claims that the two spent the night together. Then, when Nick asked for her number, Liz shot him down until apparently re-thinking things when he became the Bachelor.

She introduced herself out of the limo, but declined to say how she knew him — and Nick didn't bring it up either. In Liz's own words, she said, "I'm kind of glad that he didn't remember we had sex. I like the mystery of it. We'll see." She was wrong about him not remembering, but she definitely opened up about what happened between them — at least her side of the story.

What's not obvious is whether or not Nick's history with Liz will help her or hurt her in the competition, especially since it seems like a pretty awkward situation altogether. Guess we'll have to wait and see what happens as the season progresses. It's definitely going to be interesting.
