Meet the Contestant Nick Viall Slept With Before ‘Bachelor’ 2017 (PHOTOS)


At last, we now know which lady from Nick Viall’s past is joining as a contestant on his Bachelor 2017, and it’s… not at all who we thought it would be.

Reality Steve wasn’t lying when he said the gal in question had a connection to Bachelor Nation, but it’s not a former contestant from Bachelor or Bachelor in Paradise. Bare with us, though, as it’s still a juicy one.

Apparently during the Season 21 premiere, one of the arriving women is someone Nick had slept with at a wedding and “never called again,” Us Weekly reports.

But it wasn’t just any wedding — it was Jade Roper and Tanner Tolbert’s on-screen wedding from last year’s Bachelor at 20 special!

There’s still more: This girl just so happens to have been the maid of honor!

Meet Elizabeth Sandoz, a 29-year-old Vegas-based beauty who knows Jade from their childhood growing up in Nebraska. 

Though the Us source says the Bachelor had asked producers not to cast anyone he’d previously dated as he felt it was “a waste of a person being there," they just couldn’t help themselves.

As Reality Steve explains, the two don’t acknowledge their history upon their first interaction at Bachelor Mansion. However, she does later bring up that she’d “met” the 36-year-old before the show to another contestant.

That other girl then tells Nick, and well, we’ll have to see what goes on from there come January.
