Nick Viall Shares Thoughts On Daughter Becoming Reality TV Star Someday

It is incredibly common these days for the offspring of reality stars to become reality stars themselves. In fact, Bravo has a new show coming out that follows a handful of sons and daughters of reality stars as they try to make a name for themselves.

But if Nick Viall has anything to say about it, River Rose will not pursue a career in reality TV when she’s old enough. He recently appeared on SiriusXM Hits 1 LA With Tony Fly and Symon. He shared his thoughts on the possibility of his daughter one day joining The Bachelor or another reality show.

“I hope I do a good enough job parenting that her options supersede reality TV. I hope that she thinks it’s beneath her.”

He added that his job as a father is “done” when River Rose turns 18 but he and Natalie will continue to support her choices.
