Nick Viall Slept With One of His ‘Bachelor’ Contestants Before the Show Started

This season’s Bachelor, Nick Viall, 36, did things a little out of order.

According to an Us Weekly report, Viall slept with one of the contestants on the show long before they started taping for the upcoming season. An unnamed “inside source” told the magazine, “During the first day of taping, all of the girls came out, and he actually had slept with one of them at a wedding and never called her again.”

Aaaaawwwkward. While we’re sure this’ll make good drama for television (it’s almost as if Bachelor producers did this on purpose?!?!?!), we’re hoping karma comes back to bite Viall in the ass. Not saying we don’t want him to find love or anything…

While Viall, a former Bachelorette villain, *sort of* managed to redeem himself on this summer’s season of Bachelor In Paradise, it turns out he’s no less slimy than he was before. Apparently, he’d told producers he didn’t want anybody on the show whom he’d dated, hooked up with or known prior as he felt it would be “a waste of a person being there.” Ironic, seeing as he wormed his way onto Kaitlyn Bristowe’s season as an aquaintance.
