Nick Viall Dumped Kaitlyn Bristowe Bachelorette


Nick Viall sounds like he’s still a hopeless romantic after getting dumped on “The Bachelorette” for the second time.

As Gossip Cop reported, Viall was rejected mid-proposal by Kaitlyn Bristowe on “The Bachelorette” season finale, one year after Andi Dorfman broke his heart. Viall now has the dishonor of being the only two-time runner-up in franchise history. And yet, he still has a positive outlook.

Minutes before the “Bachelorette” ended Monday, but after the scene of Bristowe turning him down aired, Viall tweeted, “U have to love. U have to feel. It’s the reason we are here on earth. We are here to risk our hearts #thebachelorette.” He also shared the photo above.

Specifically asked if he was “ok” following the tense “After The Final Rose” special, Viall replied, “I’m living,” and included a thumbs up emoji. As Gossip Cop reported, the live after-show featured Viall and Shawn Booth addressing their feud, and Viall confronting Bristowe about saying she loved him, only to choose his rival in the end.

Of course, that all paled in comparison to last year, when Viall infamously called Dorfman out for sleeping with him in the Fantasy Suite and then going on to break up with him. Surprisingly, the former Bachelorette showed her ex some support as she live-tweeted this year’s finale. “As much as I don’t care for Nick, I don’t wish a broken heart on anyone,” wrote Dorfman.

She went on to amusingly add, “If I were Nick I would have swallowed that 80k ring and said oops I lost it.” It’s worth noting, of course, that Dorfman is no longer with Josh Murray, the contestant she chose over Viall.
