The Bachelorette's Nick Viall is unfortunately always the runner-up (for both Andi Dorfman and Kaitlyn Bristowe), but it looks as though he may have found love with another runner-up — and she was a favorite on Ben Higgins' season.

We don't know who takes home the final rose on The Bachelor Season 20, but apparently, the lady who came off second-best has found a happy ending with Viall — and she has to be either Lauren Bushnell, Amanda Stanton, JoJo Fletcher or Caila Quinn, as these are the women who have made it to the final four.

"They started seeing each other a couple weeks ago," a source revealed to InTouch magazine.

And perhaps if things go well between Viall and the mystery lady, one of them may decide to relocate, because they are reportedly doing long-distance dating at the moment.

"They live in different states, so they've been meeting up in LA," the source told the publication, adding that Viall was the one who initiated conversation and began "hitting up the runner-up" after watching her on the show.

"Ben probably won't be surprised when he finds out," adds the source. "It's typical Nick behavior."

We did a little Instagram stalking research of Viall, but he is not giving away any hints as to who the new woman in his life could be. So, if the rumors are true, guess we will have to wait for Higgins' season to wrap up before we finally find out who she is.
