Earlier this year, it was reported that January Jones and Bachelor season 21 star Nick Viall had quietly become an item. While neither commented on the reports at the time, Jones is now attempting to clear the air.

鈥淗e鈥檚 a friend of mine. He鈥檚 super sweet,鈥 Jones told ET when asked about the rumors, before confirming that she鈥檚 not attached to anyone at the moment. 鈥淣o, I鈥檓 single. But he鈥檚 a friend of mine and tells me lots of inside scoops.鈥

The Last Man on Earth star has been vocal about her Bachelor obsession, and even revealed on a Late Late Show聽appearance last year that she thought Viall was 鈥減retty cute.鈥 Appearing on the talk show again in November 2017, Jones shared that the reality star had since reached out to her with an unusual invitation 鈥 to join him on an episode of Lip Sync Battle. While she declined, she did admit to her complicated feelings about Viall.

鈥淵ou don鈥檛 know if you like him or if he鈥檚 a scumbag, and I think that鈥檚 why I鈥檓 attracted to him, maybe?鈥 she said. 鈥淗e鈥檚 cute 鈥 normal. I鈥檓 so mixed.鈥

In January, when rumors of a romance started buzzing, it was reported that they鈥檇 been dating for about two months. Viall, who split from fianc茅e Vanessa Grimaldi in August after getting engaged on the Bachelor finale six months prior, hasn鈥檛 weighed in on the speculation.
