Bachelor Nation wants former leading man Nick Viall to find love, but it may not come anytime soon.
Fans started freaking out over the weekend when Ashley Iaconetti shared a video on her Instagram story of Nick with former Bachelor contestant Haley Ferguson.
Ashley captioned the video, “I ship it,” which of course sent fans into a tizzy.
But alas, according to Hollywood Life, Nick and Haley are just friends.
“Haley’s a good friend,” Nick explained this week.
“I love her to pieces, [both] her and her [twin] sister Emily. No, we’re not dating!”
Nick is currently single after his breakup from ex-fiancée Vanessa Grimaldi, but he is open to finding love.
“Life’s an adventure. I have yet to meet my person that I know of. Maybe I’ve met her and I just don’t know yet. I’m just actively open to meeting someone,” he shared.
“The advantage of dating and having it not work out is you get to learn about yourself and as you get older you become a little more selective and narrow in on what you’re looking for.”
He continued, “I suppose the hope for me is that, even though I didn’t find it yet, I hope I’m lucky enough to find it and it will be someone who’s a really great match for me. At least that’s the hope!”
Nick first appeared on The Bachelorette during Andi Dorfman’s season and ended up as her runner-up.
He then went on Kaitlyn Bristowe’s season and was her runner-up as well.
He also appeared on a season of Bachelor in Paradise, which led to him landing the leading role as The Bachelor a couple of seasons ago.
We are rooting for you to find love, Nick! It will happen sooner rather than later, we feel it!
