Nick Viall is speaking out for the first time after calling off his engagement with Vanessa Grimaldi.
The Bachelor season 21 lead spoke to Us Weekly about the break up and also revealed if he’d ever return to the hit ABC dating show.
About the split, he said:
“In times that aren’t great, you have to kind of spend time with your loved ones,” he told US.
“I’m lucky enough to have friends outside of L.A. I’m heading back to Chicago this weekend, which I think will be good for me. I’m trying to stay positive, being around friends and family. It helps me stay positive.”
“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.”
“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.”
So, is he ever going to return to the show to find love?
“I’m definitely done with that,” he said. “I’m very thankful for everything. I don’t have regrets. I don’t have any regrets. There are still a lot of positive things that came from it, especially my relationship with Vanessa.”
