‘The Bachelor’ Nick Viall Reportedly Slept With Contestant Before Show

Nick Viall is The Bachelor for 2017, but he’s already living up to his reputation as a guy who wastes no time in taking relationships to the next level, to put it mildly.

According to sources close to the show, Nick actually slept with one of his contestants for this season of The Bachelor — before the show even began filming!

“During the first day of taping, all of the girls came out, and he actually had slept with one of them at a wedding and never called her again,” the insider told Us Weekly.

Apparently, Nick was upset about the woman arriving on the show, since he had intended to meet only new women, telling producers that bringing old flames to compete on the show “was a waste of a person being there”. But it appears producers ambushed him by bringing the woman in.

So yeah, Nick’s season is already off to a pretty wild and awkward start, and that’s without even getting into the Backstreet Boys group date. But the weirder Nick’s season gets, the more potential for drama. And that could mean ratings gold, provided viewers aren’t so turned off on the notion of Nick being The Bachelor that they just boycott the season altogether. In the Bachelor fandom, Nick seems to be a guy fans either love or hate, with very little room for middle ground. It should be interesting to see how this season performs in the ratings, and how Nick handles the pressure of being The Bachelor.

But what do you think of all this? Sound off in the comments!
