As for those rumors the budding Wilhelmina model might join another reality series like Dancing With the Stars in the future, Nick can’t really say, though he does admit “it would be a lot of fun.”


“Whatever situations come my way, I like to look at what those options are and take it each individually,” he explains. “Is it worth the risk? What’s the commitment? Things like that. I’m very open, I’m just smart about it.”
