They weren’t holding hands. They seemed totally uncomfortable. And then there was Chris Harrison digging them for clues that they were actually on the rocks and just trying to save face.
But now that Viall has traded in his time on The Bachelor for a slot on Dancing with the Stars, it turns out Grimaldi and Viall might actually have feelings for one another. Like, they might be the real deal.
Not only are these two getting chummy in front of the cameras, but their behind-the-scenes relationship seems to be really working.
Viall and Grimaldi are living together while he’s in LA filming DWTS, and though it’s only been a couple of weeks, a source tells E! News that the couple is settling in nicely to life together.
“Vanessa loves living in L.A. She’s getting her life going there. She has a car, and she’s busy getting her foundation up and running. That takes up a lot of her time,” the insider explained, “She already knew a few people in L.A., and Nick’s friends have reached out to her. She’s meeting new people.”
New people including Viall’s DWTS partner Peta Murgatroyd and her fiancé Maksim Chmerkovskiy. The two couples were spotted on a double date, and Viall revealed Murgatroyd and Chmerkovskiy have been really supportive of his new relationship with Grimaldi.
As it stands, just a week after Grimaldi and Viall went public, we may have too quickly judged them as soon-to-be victims of The Bachelor curse.
DWTS might be good for them in more ways than one.
Do you think Viall and Grimaldi have what it takes to make their relationship work?
