Nick Viall Is the Next Bachelor, and You’ll Love the Reason He Was Chosen
While the Bachelorette’s JoJo Fletcher enjoys the spoils of her engagement — and while we drool over the engagement ring that she DIDN’T get — another familiar face is still looking for love. News is finally out, and Nick Viall will be the next Bachelor. Yep, the man who ended up as runner-up while trying to win both Andi Dorfman and Kaitlyn Bristowe’s hearts in The Bachelorette and then came back for season three of Bachelor in Paradise is now determined to find love once and for all. Though some fans may be scratching their heads over this choice, there’s a very good reason why Nick will be the one handing out the roses this time around.
Plenty of folks were sure that it would either be Luke Pell or Chase McNary in the spotlight (as both were fan faves that couldn’t quite manage to capture JoJo Fletcher’s heart on The Bachelorette), but the show’s bosses decided to go with Nick instead. While some people are unsure about the choice, because he’s had quite a few chances before, other fans are rooting for Nick and are ready to see him get the chance he deserves.
Host Chris Harrison has no doubt that the choice to make 35-year-old Nick the next Bachelor “makes so much sense,” according to People. “He has just become that perennial, second-place guy who wants to find love and is as sincere, if not more sincere, than anybody about finding it. It’s about giving him his chance to find love. Who deserves it more than him?”
Also, he’s hilariously on-point and totally adorable…
Having had his heart broken in front of audiences not once but twice makes Nick an underdog that fans will surely find themselves cheering on. Let’s hope he finally finds love this time around.

Back in January, we introduced you to a feel-good cause to inspire your New Year's resolution: a walking challenge to help raise funds for the amazing cancer fighters at The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. I took part in the challenge with the Brit + Co team and ended up walking 105+ miles in January — it was awesome.
This spring, there's a new challenge on the horizon, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Big Climb. The ask: On May 15, 2021, you can step up to take cancer down by committing to climb 1,311 steps, walking 3.2 miles, or doing 440 chair step-ups at home as part of the Big Climb. If you need some motivation to bring movement back into your daily routine — look no further!
As always, it's free to sign up, but climbers are encouraged to set a fundraising goal to help beat cancer. We'll be organizing another Brit + Co team to step up, and I hope you'll join us too! Keep scrolling for a peek at where I'll be completing the challenge in my Los Angeles neighborhood around the hidden Silver Lake Stairs. Happy climbing!
Never underestimate the power of an accountability buddy! I asked my in-laws, my partner, and a few friends to join me so we can keep each other motivated and accountable in completing the challenge — virtual high-fives all around! Also, my dog Fox is a great climber, too.
An aesthetically pleasing backdrop is a huge motivator for me! I'm fortunate to have all sorts of painted steps around my neighborhood to keep the challenge interesting, but you can also keep cool inside with at-home chair step-ups.
Don't forget to share your progress on social — #BigClimb!
Feel free to break the challenge up if you need to by tackling half the distance in the AM and half at sunset. Here's me 1,311 steps later and ready for a break — but, think I earned this one!
