What will Nick Viall be doing when Dancing With the Stars ends? Does he have a job? According to Accept This Rose, there is the possibility of him having a reality show with fiancee Vanessa Grimaldi, who told the media “never say never” when it comes to another TV series.
Previously, blogger Reality Steve reported that Nick Viall’s number one goal is to make it in Hollywood, stating that Viall has been “bit by the Hollywood bug.” Reality Steve said that Viall is acting and modeling, even taking classes on both. So, it looks like something along these lines could be in Viall’s future.
As for right now, Viall has a new men’s grooming business called The Polished Gent and he tells Buzzfeed that this business is his top priority. Bustle has compared The Polished Gent to Birchbox for men, with products including grooming products, beard oils, face cream, and shaving lotion. The personal message that Nick Viall has posted on the company’s official website reads:
Since my mid twenties I have put more time than I would like to admit into keeping a youthful appearance. Most of that time was spent just buying random products hoping some of them might actually work! Sadly that method resulted in a huge amount of time and money wasted. A handful of products really stood out over the years and I am excited to share them with you.
In an interview with Glamour, Viall dished on his occupation prior to joining The Bachelorette and The Bachelor, explaining his career evolution. Viall stated:
I had a great career selling software. I was living in Chicago, and after Kaitlyn’s season I was lucky to have the option to go back. They always gave me their blessing to take risks out here. Since then, and recently, a few months before I was asked to be the “Bachelor”, I actually started a small business with a couple partners. It’s online and for men’s grooming products, so I’ve been focusing a lot of time on that. Before The Bachelor, I was out in L.A. kind of dabbling in modeling a little bit. Right now, my focus career-wise is on that [men’s grooming] business. I’m very lucky that being in the Bachelor world gives you a platform. I’ve used my business acumen that I’ve learned in corporate America and the platform that I’ve been fortunate to gain in the “Bachelor” world to kind of see if those two can work together.
The software company that Viall worked for is called Salesforce and it is located in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. As for his modeling gigs, Viall signed with Wilhelmina modeling agency in Miami and modeled for brands including Fidelity Denim and Bluemint, according to Earn the Necklace.
In 2015, Nick Viall was reportedly worth an estimated $150,000, but today, his reported net worth is $250,000. After his Dancing With the Stars gig is over, however, his net worth could greatly increase, as salaries for DWTS contestants can be up to a few hundred thousand dollars.
