Nick Viall Accused of Dumping His Girlfriend So He Could Be 'The Bachelor'

Ever since we found out Nick Viall is the next Bachelor, we've been so excited to finally see him get his happily ever after. But did he leave a working relationship in order to seize this opportunity?! Apparently Nick dumped Jen in order to be on The Bachelor. We can't believe it! 


While talking to a radio station last week, Lauren Himle totally sold Nick down the river. According to Us Weekly, Lauren told the station that she's not such a big fan of Nick's after the way he treated Jen. Apparently they were still together after BIP ... until a better offer came along.

Lauren said: 

So Jen is one of the smartest people I know, and she picks up on the bullsh*t -- her and I are both pretty good at picking up on guys' game. She knew that he was kind of manipulating her towards the end. This just happened. They were solid a week ago. ... It's fresh.

If they were solid a week ago, and Nick was announced as the Bachelor a week ago ... Yeah, that isn't sounding good.

"I think he is going to have a hard time finding someone better than Jen," Lauren added. 

Yikes! This has the potential for mega drama. If this is true, we wonder if Jen will be sharing intel via Instagram the way Jordan Rodgers's ex did while The Bachelorette was airing. Guess we'll have to wait 'til January to find out! 

Of course, we don't really know what happened in their relationship, but if Lauren's telling the truth, it's not good. Nick seems like a good guy, and we want to believe that he really is. Fingers crossed this is all just a misunderstanding!
