Nick Viall Says Virgin 'Bachelor' Colton Underwood "Hasn’t Really Dated"
"He’s had, like, two girlfriends and I think one of them was Becca [Kufrin] and he dated Tia [Booth] for a day," Viall told The Hollywood Reporter at the 2018 Streamy Awards.
Former Bachelor Nick Viall walked the red carpet at the 2018 Streamy Awards and explained to The Hollywood Reporter why he’s “curious” to see new Bachelor Colton Underwood step into the ABC role early next year.
“Honestly, I don’t even know if my advice would do any good for him in the sense that I came into my experience very different from him,” he said. “He hasn’t really dated. You know, he’s had, like, two girlfriends and I think one of them was Becca [Kurfin] and he dated Tia [Booth] for a day. So when it comes to looking for someone to settle down with, I’m really curious as to how those conversations are going to go. I think it could be interesting.”
Underwood became the talk of Kufrin’s season of The Bachelorette earlier this year after admitting on-camera that he was a virgin, which has caused skepticism from some members of Bachelor Nation.
“It’s a weird thing to lie about,” Viall said. “Listen, I think it’s great. I’ve met Colton, he’s a great guy, he’s as genuine as anyone in the franchise that I know and if you’re going to be a virgin, that’s great, but I don’t think he’s gotten any awards for it so it’s a weird thing to lie about. If anything, it’s probably gotten him more criticism for it, so I take him at his word.”
