Former ‘Bachelor’ Nick Viall Is Taking Acting Lessons Again — Report
Nick Viall is ready to stop being himself — at least on TV!
The former Bachelor star is ready to make the transition from reality TV to acting on the silver screen, and he’s willing to put in the work.
Following his stints on the The Bachelorette, Bachelor in Paradise, and Dancing With the Stars, the 36-year-old is reportedly taking acting classes again in the same studio he took courses before filming The Bachelor last year.
And though you may be thinking it’s just some casual weekly improv class, sources say the Milwaukee native is taking this very seriously.
Judging by his time on BIP, the Bachelor and DWTS — let’s be honest, he wasn’t funny on The Bachelorette — the comedy route seems to be right up his alley.
The Bachelor Nation alum already had to perform a solo scene in front of his classmates on his first day of class last Friday.
OK, where’s that footage?!
Though most people are unaware of Nick’s acting passion, fellow Bachelor Chris Soules recently revealed the two-time Bachelorette runner-up loves being famous.
"He loves being famous. He loves the spotlight, he really, truly does. If he wouldn't admit that, he's lying," the farmer told ET in March.
"I love the guy to death and there's nothing wrong with that."
In fact, the Iowa native convinced Nick to do DWTS, where he ended up finishing in sixth place.
"I've talked to him [about DWTS]. I think the guy's got it down. He's kind of a reality television pro. He knows what he's getting into, and he's been wanting do this for a long time and good for him.”
However, following the 35-year-old’s comments, Nick defended his reasons for deciding to do the ABC competition show.
"I don't think I've ever said that to him. Chris has a way with words sometimes. He has done a lot of reality TV himself,” the Season 21 leading man clapped back.
“I don't have a reaction to [his comments that I'm seeking fame]. Listen, I'm very grateful Dancing asked me to do it. It should be fun."
He then went on to say he has no desire to become famous at all.
"Actually, no [I don't want to be famous],” he revealed.
“It's funny, because the opportunities I've been given in The Bachelor world, quite honestly, other than Andi's season, those were opportunities that were presented to me, and I certainly was open to them. It was the right decision."
