Nick Viall: I’m “Very Sorry” For Humiliating Andi Dorfman When I Said We “Made Love”
Nick Viall revealed that he never intended to “humiliate” Andi Dorfman on Monday’s live “The Bachelorette: After the Final Rose” special when he publicly shared how they had “made love”, and is now “very sorry.”
Dorfman, currently engaged to contestant Josh Murray, told Viall right afterwards that his embarrassing comment was “below the belt.”
On Tuesday, Viall said, “I definitely wish I had that opportunity to have that conversation with her in private,” adding, “I did not go into last night expecting to ask her that. I was just so caught off guard by her demeanor.”
He noted, “It wasn’t so much about the sex but the level of intimacy that night and, given the situation at the time, I made it very clear where I was in my feelings for her and what something like that meant to me.”
“I was just so caught off guard that it sort of just came out,” the jilted contestant reiterated, explaining. “If I had any regrets, I didn’t want to humiliate her or make her feel that way. I feel very sorry if she did feel that way.”
Viall said his final confrontation with Dorfman — albeit humiliating (for both) — will help him move on with his life.
“I think last night was a lot of closure for me, just seeing her demeanor with me, I don’t know where it came from,” he noted. “It doesn’t eliminate any heartbreak, but it was good for me.”
Viall added, “I would say I have accepted her decision, and am willing to move forward.”
“She will always have a place in my heart and she is special person and what I had was special to me,” he said. “I’m excited for things to come.”
