It spanned for 25 seasons and recently concluded its 25th season on March 2021. It gained much popularity as a reality show and hence had many spinoffs. The spinoffs included The Bachelorette, Bachelor In Paradise, and Bachelor Pad.
They collectively came to be known as The Bachelor Franchise. The Bachelor’s first season featured Alex Michael. It has been hosted by Chris Harrison since the first season. Nick appeared twice in The Bachelorette, in the 10th and 11th seasons. He also reappeared in the 3rd season of Bachelor In Paradise. Finally, he became The Bachelor in the 21st season. Nick Viall revealed 30 women contesting in that season; 5 more than the usual.
Nick Viall was born on September 29, 1980 in Wisconsin, USA. His parents are Mary and Christopher Viall. Nick was an excellent athlete. During his high school years, he won the 800-meter run at WIAA State Track & Field Championships in 1999. Even though he doesn’t talk much about it, Nick has a legitimate job with an executive post. He works as an Account Executive in Salesforce. Salesforce is a cloud-based software company. Nick’s post is related to customers relation management and helps with the growth of the business. So he is one of the few constants in the BachelorNation with a stable and professional job. He most likely avoids bringing up on the shows because a software nerd doesn’t sound too appealing.
