Third Time’s a Charm! Nick Viall Joins ‘Bachelor in Paradise’ 3 Cast — Report


Nick Viall seems to be eating his words!

NEWS: Sneak Peek at the Bachelor in Paradise 3 Cast!

The two-time Bachelorette runner-up — Andi Dorfman and Kaitlyn Bristowe, as if you forgot — told Wetpaint definitively last September his time with the Bachelor franchise was “probably past,” including the ABC summer spin-off.

“I don’t see myself doing Bachelor in Paradise,” the 35-year-old said at the time. “I love it too much as a fan to ever be on it.”

Well, that seems to have since changed as, according to a new report, Nick has signed on to the Season 3 cast!

“Batten down the hatches, he's going to infiltrate your TV once again,” Reality Steve tweeted Monday night. “Nick Viall is on BIP.  God help us.”

Though the news hasn’t been confirmed by ABC, the show does begin filming this week, so there’s a good chance this is happening. And can we say, we don’t hate it. Who doesn’t want to see this every Monday night, come August:

Welcome back, sir. We can’t wait to see what happens next.

Bachelor in Paradise premieres Tuesday, August 2 at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
