The new season of the US Bachelor starts tonight on 9Life, but the episode is already up online at 9Now
The Bachie for season 21 is Nick Viall, who was twice runner-up on The Bachelorette. So he really, really likes being on TV.
First he was dumped by Andi, and this bit from Vulture.com is interesting: During the finale, at the After the Final Rose live special, when Nick gets a chance to confront Andi for the first time since they broke up, he drops a bomb that would paint him as a villain and instantly catapult him to the next phase in his Journey. In front of a live audience, Nick asks Andi, if she wasn’t in love with him, why she made love with him in the Fantasy Suite, breaking the cardinal Bachelor rule of not talking about what happens in the Fantasy Suite.
And then he hooked up with Bachelorette Kaitlyn for some R-rated fun but was again ditched in favour of another bloke.
Makes the Australian version seem so tame – no fantasy suites for us.
I think I’ll have to watch just to see if the chick in a dolphin costume gets a rose.
