The Office Christmas Party actress, 47, revealed that she was happy with the decision to pick the two-time Bachelorette runner-up, who she called “pretty cute,” as the star of the ABC reality series’ season 21.
“I really like Nick. A lot of people were iffy about Nick at the beginning,” she said. “Let’s make him the Bachelor! He has to leave with someone.”
Kimmel showed the Horrible Bosses actress the 30 women vying for Viall’s heart, and Aniston joked that he got a few extra ladies in the mix because he’s “so awesome.”
Judging by the contestants’ photos, names and job titles, Aniston started making her predictions for the final four. After passing over Whitney, a 25-year-old Pilates instructor who is “probably very bendy,” the Friends alum landed on Corinne, a business owner. “She looks like a business owner. I like that and just based on her beautiful blonde hair,” she joked. Upon seeing her age, though, Aniston said, “She’s 24. She’s too young to get married!”
Her next pick was Elizabeth, a 29-year-old doula. “I like a doula,” Aniston said. “She wears a good wedge.” But she really gushed about Rachel, a 31-year-old attorney. “She’s cute. Look at those arms!” she said. “Ooh, she’s an attorney. She’s smart. He’s going to need an attorney, don’t you think? That’s my third pick.”
While searching for her final pick, she dubbed Hailey, the 23-year-old photographer, as the next Olivia Caridi — the villain from Ben Higgins’ season — because she “doesn’t look happy.” Finally, she chose “cute” neonatal nurse Danielle for the last slot.
When Kimmel asked if she was going to predict who will receive Viall’s final rose, Aniston thought it was better not to choose. “I’m not going to jinx it,” she said.
The Bachelor season 21 premieres on ABC January 2, 2017, at 8 p.m. ET.
