Nick Viall's comments about the new Bachelor will earn fans respect
Earlier this month, there were rumors that Nick Viall might become the next Bachelor, and while that didn't happen, he does have a lot to say about the recent announcement.
Ben Higgins is the new star of The Bachelor — in case you didn't already know — but Viall couldn't be happier for him. During an interview with Us Weekly, Viall said, "I think ABC made a great choice. I think he's one of the few people that actually lives up to the hype. He's a very sweet guy and now that he's the leading guy I hope we get to see the other great sides of Ben. Ben has an edge and I hope that he shows it!"
Viall was one of the most controversial contestants on The Bachelorette during Kaitlyn Bristowe's season, and he was also the runner-up on Andi Dorfman's show, so, unsurprisingly, he had very few fans to start off with. That has since changed, though, because fans have seen a new side to him — and so have we.
We're pleased to see that Viall is not a sore loser as he took to Twitter to thank all those who have shown him their unwavering support during the past few months.
He also shared a message of support for Ben via Instagram.
For his part, Higgins is really excited, and he took to Twitter to share his thoughts with fans.
