Former bachelor Nick Viall is no stranger to rumors. With his multiple appearances and relationships within The Bachelor franchise, fans often wonder who he might be dating. Almost every lady seen with him would be a girlfriend. When his time as the bachelor leader ended and his engagement with Vanessa Grimaldi failed shortly afterwards, fans waited for Nick to find love again.
Nick addresses dating rumors with Demi Burnett
Two ladies in particular seem to have been the subject of Nick’s dating rumors in recent months. Bachelor in Paradise alum Demi Burnett could possibly go out with Viall. This didn’t seem entirely logical because she had a relationship with Kristian Haggerty. Since then, however, Demi and Kristian have separated.
Demi and Nick had fans speculate about their relationship when they were spotted at a Halloween costume party. US Weekly caught up with Nick to ask him about his relationship status with Demi. Nick said he wasn’t dating her.
Hannah Brown also weighed the subject. She also confirms that the rumors about Demi and Nick have no truth. Hannah said, “Oh no. They were just enjoying themselves. They are really good friends. They are like besties. Well, she is my bestie. We are besties first and then Nick is her other best friend.”
Dating rumors with Rachel Bilson were also addressed
More rumors have surfaced in Nick’s love life. Unlike Demi, Rachel Bilson is also the subject of dating rumors. Rachel has appeared on Nick’s podcast, Viall Files. She did the show in July and then Rachel and Nick became very flirty on social media.
The two have denied dating rumors. On a recent request from US Weekly, Nick refers to Rachel as his “friend.” He says he is currently dating but has not given names. Viall hopes that every relationship in which he finds himself will develop naturally. He wants to settle with the right person when the time comes. For now, he says he’s not putting himself under pressure.
Nick’s past relationship with Vanessa
Looking back on Nick and Vanessa’s relationship, it seemed almost doomed from the start. It was recently announced that Vanessa never wanted to be involved in the final. Vanessa went so far as to say that if they were not engaged, they would probably have parted sooner.
Nick feels somewhat the same way and admits that it was a bit strange to present it after a few short weeks. He said: “I think every season is the same, I think the management and the participants always have much hesitation. It’s pretty strange to get engaged after a few weeks. So, Vanessa is no different than anyone who has been in her position who was very reluctant and I was the same in my experience. “
