The Bachelor star Nick Viall has opened up about his next venture, and it has nothing to do with Season 24 of Dancing with the Stars.
At Season 21's The Bachelor: The Women Tell All taping, the 36-year-old former software salesman talked to Entertainment Tonight about his new business, which he briefly mentioned -- without any elaboration -- in past interviews.
"While the season's been airing, I've been launching a business with me and two other business partners," Nick said.
"I'm very excited about that. So hopefully you'll be seeing more of that in the very near future. So [I'm] focusing a lot of my attention on that. It's a men's grooming line called 'The Polished Gent.'"
Nick, who has sported a handsome beard for over one year now, explained that "The Polished Gent" line will include hair and facial products.
The Bachelor star joked he looks so young for his age because he's been "using my own stuff."
Nick told ET that he's "very thankful" for the journey to find love, but he's "also thankful that it's over."
When reflecting back on his experience as a whole, Nick said, "I don't think it was different than I thought it would be."
He continued, "[Chris Soules] and [Ben Higgins] and some other people who had been leads who I talked to in the past certainly prepared me. But I don't think anyone can fully appreciate the challenges that come with it until they're a part of it, until you live it and until you experience it and until you feel it, it's something quite different."
The next The Bachelor episode airs Monday, March 6 at 8PM ET/PT and will feature Nick's fantasy suite dates with Rachel and Vanessa. The two-hour The Women Tell All special then follows at 9PM ET/PT on ABC.
The show's finale is set to air March 13 on ABC and expected to end with a marriage proposal.
