‘The Bachelor’ 2017 Contestants: Meet Nick Viall’s Girls

'The Bachelor' 2017 Contestants

While many Bachelorette fans thought Luke Pell or Chase McNary might wind up to be the next star of The Bachelor, longtime fans and Bachelor In Paradise viewers were shocked and excited to see that veteran cast member Nick Viall was chosen. E! News reported that Luke Pell was actually the front-runner for the gig, but production changed gears when Viall was getting a lot of attention on BIP2. A similar situation happened with Caila Quinn from Ben Higgins' season of The Bachelor. She was spotted filming and was reported to be the next Bachelorette star. But, last minute, the plug was pulled on Quinn and JoJo Fletcher was given the opportunity. When it comes to Nick Viall, many viewers who have hated him in the past, have changed their minds, while others stand firm in their distaste for him. Bachelor guru Reality Steve has stated that Viall may be great for entertainment, but that he's been trying to get this gig for years. Reality Steve explained: He’s got a very healthy ego that’s increased ten fold since he began in this franchise. He’s even admitted it in past interviews that he knows he can be an a**hole at times. He’s relishing being the “Bachelor.” He’s wanted this role for three years now. So the “awww shucks” attitude is an act. The guy moved to LA and has been taking acting classes. He’s lied in numerous interviews about things, so much so that I’ve lost count. He’s just become verrrrry media savvy. Lets not mistake what we’re seeing here. He’s no spring chicken when it comes to this franchise. Whatever the case, Nick Viall is the new Bachelor and we've got all the details on the women who are vying for his attention on season 21. Get the spoilers on the girls announced so far, Nick Viall and more in our contestants gallery. (Instagram/NickViall)




I will be watching regardless they always need a chance to find love no matter what we all do deserve someone in life so I think and I hope and pray that he does find someone


Yes, I hope and pray Nick will find someone also, so I can think to myself “IT’S ABOUT TIME”!!! And so he can stop appearing on the Bachelorette and Bachelor in Paradise. There’s a reason he got majorly dumped so many times, don’t ya’ think?? He’s so into himself and for no good reason. He’s really not that hot at all. What’s the fuss about? And, if enough people (hundreds or thousands) don’t watch, YES, Danna, the ratings WILL GO DOWN and maybe ABC will think twice about their choices.


“there’s a reason he got dumped so many times”. Omg lol. I’m indifferent about him for the most part but that’s among the most ridiculous arguments to put forward. First off, 2 times isn’t “so many times”. Second, even if you consider 2 to be “so many” tell that statement to the millions and millions of people who’ve had x number of exes/ gfs/ bfs relationships before finding their true partner: sometimes they dump the person other times they’re the one who get dumped. Third, I only wish this much hate was generated towards Womack who couldn’t find a partner after courting 55 women. That’s true embarrassment. People said they wouldn’t watch his second season but they still did and the ratings were decent. As they will probably be for this season.
Also, like it or not, he is physically attractive/ his looks do attract a large audience. Or else he wouldn’t have found even moderate success in the modelling industry nor would he be cast in the bachelorette to begin with IE: ever seen any unattractive people on the bachelor/ bachelorette?


As much as I love the Bachelor/Bachelorette I will not be watching this season what was done to Luck was just unfair and I won’t support that.


Who is Luck? (do you mean Luke?)
But I do agree with you as I won’t be watching. Luke or ANYONE else would be a better choice than Nick. I really dislike him. I cannot believe that ABC chose HIM !! EWWW.
