8. Nick Viall: Season 21

Nick Viall is a Bachelor Nation alum that has quite literally made the rounds of the shows this franchise has to offer. He first started off as a contestant on seasons 10 and 11 of The Bachelorette, and then went to Bachelor in Paradise, and finally wrapped a pretty little bow on his entire journey by becoming the Bachelor of season 21.

By the time he became the lead, he was essentially a veteran of the franchise and well-equipped to handle whatever drama was thrown his way. After all, when you’ve been rejected by two Bachelorettes, you tend to have a tough exterior when it comes to the journey of love.

Nick’s season was rather interesting for many reasons, including meeting Rachel Lindsay who went on to make history as the first Black Bachelorette. However, many memorable moments included contestant Corrine Olympios’ ridiculous shenanigans. Whether she was napping, butting heads with the other women, or just taking the whole situation for granted, Corrine was relentless in her pursuit to woo Nick. We won’t soon forget the cringe-worthy wedding photoshoot date, will we?

Nick ended his season with what Bachelor Nation had hoped would be the beginning of the rest of his life, as he proposed to winner Vanessa Grimaldi. Unfortunately, within a year, they called off their engagement.

In the days since being the Bachelor, Viall has dated on and off but hasn’t found “the one” just yet. Instead, he’s busy with his podcast, “The Viall Files“, interviewing fellow Bachelor Nation alums including his exes (who he gets along with swimmingly!).

And yes ladies, he is still single.
