Nick Viall has clearly gotten around after appearing on not one but two seasons of The Bachelorette and becoming The Bachelor himself.
Rumors have attached the reality t.v. star to numerous women in Hollywood, including Rachel Bilson, who appeared on his podcast The Viall Files.
Now, it appears Nick may be dating January Jones, and while this seems like the kind of gossip that is just too crazy to be true, the actress has recently confirmed the rumors herself with a pretty wild story.
Nick Slid Into Her DMs
The actress, who currently appears on the Netflix drama Spinning Out sat down with Dax Shepard recently, to speak on his podcast Armchair Expert.
She revealed a pretty crazy story about her and Nick, which seemed to confirm rumors that the two are dating.
She confessed that Nick had DM'ed her after she criticized him while talking about The Bachelor in various interviews.
Apparently, Nick felt there was some damage control to be done, and went about trying to defend himself.
The Pair Went Out For Coffee
The former Mad Men actress explained, “Then Nick slid into my DMs, and he’s like, ‘I’m so sorry that your perception of me is so negative. I’d love to take you out to coffee and see if I can change your mind.’ And I squealed! I was like, ‘Oh, my God.’ … I was like, ‘I hate that guy!’”
Hmmm, taking a gorgeous, and very famous actress out for coffee with the innocent claim that he simply wanted to change her perception of him? Clearly, Nick was looking to become more than just good pals.
January Clearly Had Fun On The Date
She continued, “My sister’s like, ‘If you don’t go, you will forever regret it.’ So I agreed to go on a date with him — or to drinks or whatever — and as I met him, I was rounding the corner, and I saw him, and he has this very distinct walk, and I had this instinct to run up to him and wrap my legs around his waist — you know, like they do? I stopped myself.”
Who hasn't dreamed of running up to one of The Bachelor leads or a date on top of a mountain after being dropped off by helicopter? What other reason is there to watch the show besides pure fantasy?
Things Fizzled Out Pretty Quickly
Apparently, things fizzled out between the two, with the actress seemingly more curious about the show than Viall himself, though she claims he spilled some behind the scenes details.
She said, “But I got a lot of juicy insights. When (contestants) come out of the limo and they all have these little schticks or whatever, producers are handing them to them. And then I just felt bad for the people who get, like, the dolphin costume."
Though I must ask, what's wrong with the dolphin? At least it's a good way to get noticed! Though, a sparkly dress would probably have worked out just fine too.
So, though they don't seem to be going on anymore dates in the future, at least January can now say she dated one of the bachelors!
