Chris Harrison Believes Nick Viall Is The Bachelor We *Need*

Who's ready for Season 21???

Posted on

Many people expected The Bachelor to follow it’s usual formula by picking one of the runner-ups from the previous season of The Bachelorette.

When you expect #TheBachelor to be Luke, Robbie, Chase, etc. but they announce its Nick Viall #mood

And a lot of folks were surprised when it wasn't Luke Pell.

when the new bachelor is announced and it's not Luke.. #TheBachelor 😭

In an exclusive interview with People, Chris Harrison explained the reasoning behind choosing Nick. "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.”

"We have made a very, very good living – and have been extremely successful – out of leading the landscape and trying to please Bachelor Nation and give them what they want, but at the same time knowing well enough to know that we're actually giving them what they need," he continued.

“At the end of the day, we all looked around the table and nobody could say it wasn't Nick. You can't shoot holes at the fact that he is just the most deserving and sincere person."
