The Bachelor: Nick Viall and Kelley Flanagan–new couple alert?

Bachelor Nation, do we have a new couple alert we need to send out regarding Nick Viall and Kelley Flanagan?

The Bachelor didn’t end in love for contestant Kelley Flanagan, despite her connection with Peter Weber before the season actually started filming. Unfortunately, her exit was edited to make her seem like a horrendous villain, even though she didn’t act remotely like that all season.

In any case, while The Bachelor days are behind her, she may not be done with Bachelor Nation completely. What does that mean exactly? Recently, host Chris Harrison was spilling all the proverbial tea while doing an Instagram live video, and it involved Kelley getting “cozy” with a Bachelor Nation alum.

Who, oh, who was Harrison talking about? NICK VIALL!

Yes, ladies and gentlemen, Viall and Flanagan were all kinds of cozy at the party. And of course, his IG post has kept the rumor mills churning. “She’s not with Peter”, he so bluntly captions in his picture with Kelley. Marking your territory, Viall? Announcing to the world that you’ve claimed the prize gave up?

She’s not with Peter

A post shared by Nick Viall (@nickviall) on

To be honest, I’m sort of here for this potential relationship. They actually look pretty adorable together and just might work. In fact, their fellow alums left all sorts of encouraging comments about the two being together. Everyone is totally stanning them, and it makes me wonder if we won’t be seeing a post soon with an official announcement.

I know a lot of people are still hung up on the theory that Kelley is actually dating Peter now and so on so forth, but Kelley has debunked those rumors time and time again. And I think it’s time to leave Pilot Pete in the rearview mirror–we’ve had enough of his shenanigans to last us a lifetime and I’m ready to move on.

Whether or not Flanagan and Viall are actually dating or even thinking about is unclear, but I know I am so okay with it. Just saying, they look incredibly adorable together.
