The beauty is in the medical field but often posts sexy swimsuit photos to her Instagram page. He works on his podcast, bringing in stars for interviews.  

Nick has rich dating hisotry. He debuted on season 10 of The Bachelorette in 2014 with Andi Dorfman, coming in second. The budding star then joined season 11 of The Bachelorette where he tried to win the heart of Kaitlyn Bristowe.

After that it was season three of Bachelor In Paradise where he romanced Leah Block then Amanda Stanton and Jen Saviano. 

Next, ABC made the leap of casting him as The Bachelor in 2016 which led to his engagement with Vanessa Grimaldi, a special education teacher from Canada. They split in August 2017.

Nick’s had also been with actresses. In mid January Jones confirmed she did go on ‘a couple of dates’ with Viall after he ‘slid into her DMs’.

The 42-year-old actress previously insisted the pair were just friends following speculation they might be dating in 2018, but the ‘Mad Men’ star has revealed the pair hooked up after he messaged her when she had been ‘blasting’ ‘The Bachelor’ star on talk shows because she was ‘so into’ the series.

She said: ‘Nick slid into my DMs, and he’s like, ‘I’m so sorry that your perception of me is so negative, I’d love to take you out to coffee and see if I could change your mind.’ And I squealed.

‘I was like, ‘I hate that guy,’ but my sister was like, ‘If you don’t go you will forever regret it.”

‘So I agreed to go on a date with him – or to drinks, or whatever. As I met him I was rounding the corner and I saw him, and he has a very distinct walk, and I had this instinct to run up to him and wrap my legs around his waist, you know like they do? [But] I stopped myself.’

January admits the date was ‘good’ but insists all she did was ‘grill him about the show’.

But the star admitted it resulted in ‘a couple of dates’.

Speaking on Dax Shepard’s ‘Armchair Expert’ podcast, she added: ‘The thing that attracted me to Nick was that he seemed – I mean, he was cast as the quote-unquote villain, but he had a bit of a brain, so there was something else there.

‘That’s all we were talking about, really. But I got a lot of juicy inside stuff.’

In February 2018, January insisted she was not dating Nick.

She said at the time: ‘He’s a friend of mine. He’s super sweet. No, I’m single. But, he’s a friend of mine and tells me lots of inside scoops.’

Previously, insiders had reported that the actress and the reality star had been seeing one another for around two months.

They claimed: ‘They’ve been dating for about two months. She went on ‘The Late Show’ in mid-November and said Nick had reached out to her and tried to get her to lip-sync battle with him. She declined, but then he asked her out to a drink and she accepted. They’ve been seeing each other since.’

He was also lined to Rumer Willis,

In 2018 he said he and Willis are just ‘very platonic friends’.

The star has quashed rumours he and the actress – the daughter of Bruce Willis and Demi Moore – are an item after they shared a selfie together on Instagram two weeks ago, which the ‘House Bunny’ star captioned: ‘Best buds.’

The bearded-haired hunk says he did warn Rumer that people would gossip about them before sharing the snap, but she wasn’t bothered.

On whether the couple are dating, Nick told People TV’s ‘Chatter’: ‘Rumer is one of my very best and closest friends. She decided to post a picture of us. And I was like, ‘Just so you know, people pay attention to who I’m dating or not’ and she was like, ‘[I] don’t care.’ So, she was kind of fun with it.’

The former ‘Bachelor’ star says that they sometimes like to discuss their respective romantic lives which each other, and whilst he ‘loves her to death’ it is only as a friend.

He explained: ‘We are very close, very platonic friends. We bounce our love lives off each other at times, but no romantic situation going on there. But I love her to death – she’s a great friend. I’m glad she’s a part of my life.’

Another famous lady Nick has been romantically linked to is January Jones, but he refused to comment on the speculation.

When asked if they had dated, he simply stated: ‘I have?’

Sources claimed that the pair hit it off when they met on the set of ‘The Late Late Show with James Corden’ in 2017, but the ‘Mad Men’ star insisted the rumours couldn’t be further from the truth.

She said: ‘He’s a friend of mine. He’s super sweet. No, I’m single. But, he’s a friend of mine and tells me lots of inside scoops.’

Previously, insiders had reported that the actress and the reality star had been seeing one another for around two months.

They claimed: ‘They’ve been dating for about two months. She went on ‘The Late Show’ in ­mid-November and said Nick had reached out to her and tried to get her to lip-sync battle with him. She declined, but then he asked her out to a drink and she accepted. They’ve been seeing each other since.’

In 2017 Nick said he ‘still loves’ his ex-fiancee Vanessa Grimaldi following their recent split.

The Bachelor’stars called time on their five-month engagement in 2017 but, despite going their separate ways, they’re still friends and the hunk is hoping to learn from the experience so that he can do it right when he dates someone new.

Speaking to Us Weekly, he said: ‘I still love her very much. I’m not afraid to say that.

‘I like to try new things, get out of my comfort zone. I know I have a lot of work to do in that arena. And it’s fun to try and I always appreciate the opportunity to try new things and that’s been a lot of fun.’

Nick added it’s important to stay busy, and opened up about his ‘support system’ – noting that Vanessa is still a big part of that.

He explained: ‘My friends, my family and Vanessa and I are still very much each other’s support system. We’re trying to do that and it’s a challenge at times, but we still realise that we’re there for each other.’

He is focused on seeing his friends and family, and insisted it will help him see the positives and not lose any self belief.

He added: ‘I’m trying to stay positive, being around friends and family. It helps me stay positive. And you know, what helps me is just kind of believing in yourself.

‘It’s obviously easy to get insecure and feel bad about yourself. You get in your head about things when things aren’t working out for you.’

Nick proposed to Vanessa in a romantic episode of The Bachelor in March 2017, but the pair announced they had gone their separate ways.

In a joint statement, they said: ‘It’s with a great amount of heartbreak for the both us as we have decided to end our engagement. We gave this relationship our all and we are saddened that we did not get the fairytale ending we hoped for. We will continue to be there for each other no matter what. This hasn’t been an easy decision, however, as we part ways, we do so with lots of love and admiration for each other.’
