Nick Viall made his reality TV debut in 2014, becoming the runner-up on season 9 of The Bachelorette featuring Andi Dorfman.
The former software salesman then appeared on Kaitlyn Bristowe’s season of the reality dating series the following year, joining the competition late and putting a twist in the show. However, the final rose ceremony of season 10 ended with him coming in second once again.
Viall continued his Bachelor Nation legacy when he appeared on Bachelor in Paradise season 3 in 2016.
The following year, he was cast as the lead of The Bachelor season 21. He got engaged to Vanessa Grimaldi in the 2017 finale — but the pair called it quits that August.
Following his stint as the Bachelor, he competed on Dancing With the Stars season 24 with pro partner Peta Murgatroyd and came in 6th place. He made his acting debut in the 2017 holiday TV movie A Christmas Cruise before securing guest appearances on the ABC sitcom Speechless, TV Land’s Teachers and General Hospital.
He’s the host of the “Viall Files” podcast, which launched in 2019.
Viall was briefly linked to Mad Men actress January Jones in 2018 before finding love with girlfriend Natalie Joy two years later. The couple made their relationship Instagram official in January 2021.
