Nick Viall Next Bachelor? Producers Strongly Considering Bachelorette Runner-Up

If anyone deserves a second shot at love, it's Nick Viall, who recently told Us Weekly he's "still heartbroken" after being dumped by Bachelorette Andi Dorfman in last month's memorable finale. As it happens, the software salesman, 33, may want to pack his manscarves: A source close to the addictive ABC franchise reveals to Us that producers are strongly considering Viall to be the next Bachelor.

"Viewers are interested in what he has to say," says the insider of Viall, who unforgettably announced that he and Dorfman "made love" in the Fantasy Suite. For now, though, he'll have to beat the likes of season eight's Arie Luyendyk Jr. and sexy farmer Chris Soules, both of whom are also being considered.
