Nick Viall

It's been about a month since Nick Viall and Vanessa Grimaldi said their official goodbyes and issued a breakup statement via their reps, but it looks like Nick may be having some regrets.


The Bachelor alum made an appearance on Ben Higgins and Ashley Iaconetti's podcast, Almost Famous, and opened up about the split. He shared, "I don't know if I felt like it needed to happen. But, you know, it kind of is what it is."

Whoa. It definitely sounds like Vanessa is the one who did the splitting. Could it have something to do with the fact that she wanted to stay in Canada with her close-knit family, and Nick wanted to stay in Los Angeles? It was definitely an issue they discussed on the show, and one that may have led to their breakup.

Maybe Nick should have tried harder, since it doesn't sound like he enjoys single life all that much. "It's never fun, right?" he continued. "I don't know. Being single kind of sucks. But what can you do? I've always been the eternal optimist of pushing forward, so yeah. I'm fine."

During that time the couple made several awkward media appearances, which had fans questioning if it was really going to work out between them. Regardless, no one was really shocked to hear about the split.

Shortly after they issued their breakup statement last month, Nick admitted to Us Weekly, "I still love her very much ... I'm not afraid to say that." Yup, definitely sounds like she did the breaking up. Womp womp.
