Nick Viall Hooking Up With Pal Ben Higgins’s ‘Bachelor’ 2016 Runner-Up — Report


Andi Dorfman said it best at Jade Roper and Tanner Tolbert’s wedding: Bachelor Nation is “an incestual web of exes."

Now Andi’s ex and two-time Bachelorette runner-up Nick Viall is proving that point, if a new report is to be believed.

Nick has been dating pal Ben Higgins’s Bachelor 2016 runner-up on the down-low, according to In Touch. Out of respect for the spoiler-averse, we’re not going to list that gal here, though you can find out who — and the winner — over here!

What viewers do know is it has to be one of his remaining final four: Lauren Bushnell, Caila Quinn, JoJo Fletcher, or Amanda Stanton.

“They started seeing each other a couple weeks ago,” an insider reveals, adding the 35-year-old male model began “hitting up the runner-up” after watching her on the show.

The source also shares, because they live in different states (which isn’t a spoiler, as none of the remaining gals are from Nick’s hometown of Chicago), they’ve been meeting up in L.A.

Though Ben may not know already, the mag says he won’t be shocked when he does, calling it “typical Nick behavior.” Then again, the current Season 20 star may already be in the loop, considering he and Nick just hung out at the Janner wedding a few weeks back.

In fact, it looks like their friendship is doing just fine, as Kaitlyn Bristowe’s exes just posted their adorable Backstreet Boys singalong from the aforementioned nuptials:

Finally, it could all be rumors — they’ve plagued Nick before! — and he did just tell Us Weekly this week he hasn’t dipped into the Bachelor Nation dating pool.

But knowing who the runner-up is, there’s no denying she and Mr. Viall would make an attractive pair — though there’s definitely an age difference, seeing as all of the finalists are all either 24 or 25.

Either way, we’ll be keeping a watchful eye on their social media activity over the coming weeks!
