Former Bachelor Nick Viall is no stranger to rumors. With his multiple appearances and relationships within The Bachelor franchise, fans wonder quite often who he could be dating. Pretty much every lady seen with him is rumored to be a girlfriend. When his time as the Bachelor lead ended and his engagement to Vanessa Grimaldi failed shortly after, fans have been waiting for Nick to find love again.

Nick addresses dating rumors with Demi Burnett

Two ladies in particular seem to be the subject of Nick’s dating rumors the past few months. Bachelor in Paradise alum Demi Burnett was said to possibly be dating Viall. This didn’t quite seem logical since she was in a relationship with Kristian Haggerty. However, Demi and Kristian have since broke up.

Demi and Nick got fans speculating about their relationship when they were spotted at a Halloween costume party holding hands. US Weekly caught up with Nick to ask him about his relationship status with Demi. Nick said he is not dating her.

Hannah Brown also weighed in on the subject. She also confirms that there is no truth to the Demi and Nick dating rumors. Hannah said, “Oh, no. They were just having a good time. They’re really good friends. They’re like besties. Well, she’s my bestie. We’re besties first and then Nick is her other best friend.”

Dating rumors with Rachel Bilson were also addressed

More rumors have been surfacing around Nick’s love life. Other than Demi, Rachel Bilson is also the subject of dating rumors. Rachel has appeared on Nick’s podcast, Viall Files. She did the show in July and then Rachel and Nick got very flirty on social media.

The two have denied dating rumors. When asked recently by US Weekly, Nick refers to Rachel as his “friend.” He says he is currently dating, but has given no names. Viall hopes any relationship he is in will develop naturally. He wants to settle down with the right person when the time comes. As for now, he says he is not putting any pressure on himself.

Nick’s past relationship with Vanessa

Looking back on Nick and Vanessa’s relationship it almost seemed doomed from the beginning. It has been recently disclosed that Vanessa never wanted to get engaged on the finale. Vanessa went so far as to say if they were not engaged they would have probably broken up sooner.

Nick somewhat feels the same way and admits that it was a little weird proposing after just a few short weeks. He said, “I think every season is the same, where I think the lead and the contestants always have a lot of hesitation. It’s pretty crazy to get engaged after a few weeks. So, Vanessa is no different than everyone who’s been in her position who’s had a lot of reluctance on that and I was the same on my experience.”
