“The Bachelor” host Chris Harrison warned that Nick Viall could be the first in the show’s history to be left with no one at the end of Monday night’s finale.
“[This] might be the first Bachelor in the history of this entire franchise to be left at the end,” Harrison said in a Monday interview with “Good Morning America.” “And believe me when I tell you, he knows that.”
Viall will present his final rose to either Vanessa Grimaldi and Raven Gates on Monday’s season finale of the ABC dating series, but if Harrison is to be believed, it might go unaccepted.
“I’ve been falling in love with her for a very long time,” Viall says in a preview of the season’s final moments. “I feel like sometimes I’ve been fighting it, and I’m not fighting it any longer.”
“I am going to ask her to marry me, and my only fear now, is what if she says no?” he says. “If I leave here alone, I’ll be devastated, I’ll be heartbroken. It would’ve been a lot for nothing.”
This season marks Viall’s fourth time on the ABC franchise, including two previous attempts at finding love on “The Bachelorette” and one season of “Bachelor in Paradise.” Harrison’s comments are clearly playing to the fact that he’s famously been rejected twice before, making it to the final two in both Kaitlyn Bristowe and Andi Dorfman’s seasons, only to be passed over for someone else.
But no matter Viall’s fate, the “Bachelor” franchise will move on without him. ABC revealed last month that Rachel Lindsay will star as the next “Bachelorette” marking the first time an African-American will star in the leading role in the popular franchise.
