Television show appearances

The Bachelorette

In the final dates, he confessed his love for Andi as one of the final two bachelors, but left heartbroken when Andi chose Josh Murray to receive the final rose.

In 2015, Viall returned for a second chance in the following season of The Bachelorette, when he was a guest in the fourth week at the New York City date with Bachelorette Kaitlyn Bristowe.

Bachelor in Paradise
