Tuesday night's finale of Bachelor in Paradise featured Viall breaking Saviano's heart in a tear-filled final Rose Ceremony. Viall never fell in love with the brunette beauty, and although he tried to force it, his heart was closed off -- maybe not just to her, but rather to women in general.
"It's not easy saying goodbye to someone as incredible as @jensav11," Viall captioned an Instagram photo of the pair last night.
Viall worried about making a mistake in letting Saviano go since they both knew he had walls up throughout his journey in Paradise.
After all, Viall had his heart broken on back-to-back seasons of The Bachelorette before deciding to appear on Season 3 of Bachelor in Paradise this summer.
"[Jen is] one of the most beautiful, graceful, and intelligent women I've ever met," Viall continued in his heartfelt post. "So lucky to have had her in my life. She deserves the world. #bachelorinparadise."
It's probably safe to say Viall is happy about leaving Mexico a single man since ABC recently decided to name him the nextThe Bachelor star.
However, according to Saviano's good friend Lauren Himle, Viall actually reunited with Saviano after Paradise wrapped filming in June and they dated again. The couple allegedly split for good once Viall was offered the Bachelor position.
"I am not a big fan of him... [Jen and Nick] did break up on the show," Himle told Detroit's 97.1 The Ticket radio station on September 1, "but it was my understanding that they were still seeing each other after the show completed... [The second breakup] just happened, they were solid a week ago. It's fresh."
Himle said Saviano knew Viall was "manipulating" her towards the end of their post-show romance.
If that's the case, Saviano has maintained her sense of humor. After Paradise's finale aired last night, the Florida entrepreneur posted a throwback photo on Instagram of herself in a hotel room eating pizza.
"When you get dumped... Here's what you do: you order an XL pizza, bottle of wine & watch How To Lose a Guy in Ten Days... because you know, I'm good at that // #bachelorinparadise #goodtimes #singleAF," Saviano wrote. About The Author:Elizabeth Kwiatkowski
