'The Bachelor' star Nick Viall: I may be dumping all 30 of my bachelorettes
By Elizabeth Kwiatkowski, 02/27/2017
The Bachelor star Nick Viall was apparently not sold on any of his bachelorettes going into his round of fantasy suite dates.
In a preview clip released by ABC for The Bachelor's February 27 episode, Nick expresses concern about finding love to his ex Andi Dorfman and suggests he may end up alone after this long dating process on TV.
Last week's The Bachelor broadcast concluded with a cliffhanger in which Andi knocked on Nick's hotel-room door when he was getting ready for the Rose Ceremony in New York that followed the women's hometown dates. When Nick opened the door, he had a completely stunned look on his face.
Andi rejected Nick in the Dominican Republic before the final Rose Ceremony of her season, when she ultimately accepted a marriage proposal from winner Josh Murray. (Andi and Josh split months later in January 2015).
"You dumped me on national television," Nick recalls.
"But now you're dumping 29 girls," Andi notes, justifying how everything comes full circle.
"I don't know. Maybe 30," Nick confesses.
"So you get dumped -- maybe 30?!" Andi exclaims in shock at the end of the clip.
In that moment, Andi seemed to realize Nick was suggesting he may dump all of his bachelorettes on Season 21. Nick started out dating 30 women, and after all this time, he could apparently see himself disconnecting from all of them at the end of this journey.
Since The Bachelor premiered earlier this year, Nick has struggled with trusting his own judgment and being vulnerable. In the back of his mind, Nick is worried history may repeat itself -- meaning a woman might hurt him again or he could end up single due to a lack of feelings on his end.
After getting dumped on Andi's season of The Bachelorette, Nick finished as a runner-up once more on Kaitlyn Bristowe's edition of the show. He then gathered up enough courage to appear on Season 3 of Bachelor in Paradise, when he dated Jennifer Saviano but failed to fall in love with her.
