The Bachelor star Nick Viall didn’t win the Dancing with the Stars Mirrorball trophy, but he’s not dancing just yet.

Nick Viall will appear on the Dancing with the Stars season finale this week, one night after his ex TV girlfriend, Rachel Lindsay’s season of The Bachelorette premieres on ABC.

Nick and his dance partner, Peta Murgatroyd, were eliminated on Week 7 after hovering around the bottom of the leaderboard all season. Now that Nick is no longer under pressure to compete for the Mirrorball trophy, there’s no doubt he’ll be a lot more relaxed on the dance floor.

Nick will be in good company

According to ABC, the two-night season finale will feature the final performances by the three finalists – Rashad Jennings, Normani Kordei, and David Ross. But their dances aren’t the only routines fans will see.

Nick and the other eliminated contestants will be back for a group dance during Tuesday night’s finale. It’s not clear if he will also appear on the first part of the finale on Monday night, so tune in just in case. (And because DWTS is so fun to watch!)

What’s next for Nick?

Since his elimination on Week 7, Nick has been promoting his new company, The Polish Gent. But that’s not all.

Nick has been shopping for a new home with his fiancee, Vanessa Grimaldi. Now don’t get all excited — the  couple made it clear that they aren’t ready to set a wedding date yet. However, the fact that they are house shopping together shows that they are making a big step in their relationship.

Now that Nick is almost done with his four stop reality TV tour (The Bachelorette x2, Bachelor in Paradise, The Bachelor, and Dancing with Stars), are his TV days over?

Maybe not.

During a post-Bachelor finale press event, the couple was asked if they would consider going on another reality show. Nick didn’t have a chance to speak up. Instead, Vanessa jumped right in and said, “never say never.”

Hmmm… Will we see the couple doling out relationship advice on Bachelor in Paradise this summer?

Or perhaps Nick and Vanessa will appear on an upcoming season of Freeform’s Happily Ever After. But that may be the worst idea yet considering Ben and Lauren’s relationship took a nose-dive while they were taping the show. And then they split.

Watch the two-night Dancing with the Stars season finale starting at 8 p.m. ET on Monday and 9 p.m. ET pm
