Nick Viall Gets A New Gig

Nick Viall Gets New Gig And It's Not 'The Bachelor'
Nick Viall may be leaving reality TV behind for a career in modeling. Weeks after his proposal was rejected by Kaitlyn Bristowe on the Bachelorette, Nick headed to Miami for a photo shoot with the Wilhelmina Modeling Agency.

Rumors that Nick will be named the next Bachelor have died down, with US Weekly claiming that one of Nick's Bachelorette co-stars, Ben Higgins will be the next man handing out roses. Perhaps Viall decided it was time to move on and do something that didn't involve handing out roses.

Although the network has not made a formal announcement as to who the next Bachelor ...

He did his best to convince viewers that a decision has not been made yet, teasing that it could be Ben Higgins, Nick Viall, Ben Zorn or Jared Haibon.

Kaitlyn Bristowe and Shawn Booth
The Bachelorette's Kaitlyn Bristowe, 30, and Shawn Booth, 28 open up to PEOPLE in this week's issue about breaking the rules, her regret over her night with Nick Viall, and their plans for a (really big!) family.

"We can't keep our hands off each other," Bristowe says at their PDA-filled photo shoot with PEOPLE in Los Angeles on July 24.

"It's the best. And when we don't have to hide it, oh my God!" The Vancouver-based former dance instructor's sense of relief is understandable, given the turbulence she's experienced in the months since the show began airing.

First there was a vicious ta...

Ben Higgins Out, Nick Viall In As Next 'Bachelor'? 'Never Say Ne
Is Ben Higgins no longer being considered as the next Bachelor? Many fans expected Chris Harrison to introduce Ben as ABC's next leading man during the After the Final Rose special last Monday night, but the network remains silent about the guy who will hand out roses in 2016.

For weeks, the 'Ben H. Is The Next Bachelor' headlines convinced just about everyone that the 26-year-old business analyst would get the gig. However, there is speculation that Nick Viall may end up getting a third chance to find love on television, with blogger Reality Steve stating "never say never" when asked if N...

No longer a Bachelorette, Kaitlyn Bristowe partied the night away in New York City with her fiancé Shawn Booth on Tuesday night. The couple, once admonished by ABC for using Snapchat to spoiling the outcome of the show, shared Snaps of their wild first date in NYC with their followers.

Starting with dinner out with friends, and ending with drinks in their hotel room, Kaityln and Shawn celebrated until the wee hours of the morning, something they seemed to regret hours later.

Did Shawn Booth Get A Nose Job? 'Bachelorette' Winner Comes Clea
Did Shawn Booth get a nose job?

That was the question that fans were asking after seeing the Bachelorette winner on After The Final Rose. It's no secret that Shawn B.'s nose is on the large side, so seeing it slimmed down on Monday night's ATFR airing had many fans wondering if Shawn went under the knife after proposing to Kaitlyn Bristowe. And he wasn't shy about the truth.

According to E! News, Booth had heard the chatter, and was honest about what he had done.

"I did not get any work done. I did not get a nose job and I keep hearing that today!" Shawn said. So what gives? This, my fri...

First up, it's Kaitlyn and Shawn! Look at these two. Arm in arm, all over each other. So adorable. Also, kudos to Chris Harrison for the nastiest Bachelorette burn since Amy Schumer's guest spot. Chris asks Shawn how it felt when Kaitlyn told him "well… for the second time this season," that he was the one.

'The Bachelorette' Finale Recap: Which Guy Gets His Heart Crushe
This is it. The Bachelorette finale the world has been waiting for. Will Shawn's looks-like-Ryan-Gosling-if-you-squint looks coast him to an easy victory? Will Nick get rejected at zero hour, again, and finally stop chasing girls on reality TV?

Considering it's Tuesday morning, you probably know the answer already, having A) watched the episode, B) read about it online, or C), stepped outside and seen at least one middle-aged woman cartwheeling down the sidewalk, shrieking, "Kaitlyn and [REDACTED]!!! Kaitlyn and [REDACTED]!!"

Nick Viall Heading To 'Bachelor in Paradise' As Mystery Contesta
After Bachelorette Kaitlyn Bristowe gives out her final rose on Monday night, fans will turn their attention to the next big drama-fest — Bachelor in Paradise.

'Bachelorette' Kaitlyn Bristowe Rejects Proposal, Will She Walk
Bachelorette Kaitlyn Bristowe will break one guy's heart on Monday night's season finale. Her parting words to this season's runner-up are a bit harsh considering she lets him get down on one knee and propose to her before she dumps him.

The teaser video (below) shows Shawn Booth and Nick Viall arriving at the Bachelor Mansion for the final rose ceremony. Both men express their nervousness about their final moments on the show. It looks like rumors are correct — there will be two proposals, but only one man will walk away with Kaitlyn as his new fiancee.

'The Bachelorette': 'The Men Tell All' Didn't Tell Us Much

7/21/2015 6:31am EDT
The Bachelorette
With just a week before the season finale, The Bachelorette gives us its traditional The Men Tell All episode. Will the men really tell all? Will these two hours of reality TV be fraught with controversy, thanks to this- the "most controversial season" of The Bachelorette, ever?

The answer: No!

But it was still reasonably entertaining. Let's recap.

Like any The Men Tell All, this one's rife with Bachelor cross-promotion. So we open not with the men telling all, but with an extended plug for Bachelor in Paradise. We don't need to recap a promo, do we? You could just watch this one, right ...

Spoilers indicate that the 30-year-old dance instructor has a tough time deciding who should get the final rose, but she will walk off into the L.A. sunset wearing a stunning gown, a 3.5-carat diamond on her finger.

The Bachelorette Kaitlyn Bristowe hands out her final rose next week, and there are rumors that she may already have another reality TV gig in the works — Dancing with the Stars Season 21.

'Bachelorette' Hunk Ben Zorn Comes To JJ Lane's Rescue, Breaks U
Ben Zorn may not be the next Bachelor, but he should be able to gig as a superhero — one who saves a villain. According to TMZ, Ben, who was a contestant on Kaitlyn Bristowe's season of the Bachelorette, broke up a fight in L.A. last weekend, coming to the rescue of his fellow castmate, JJ Lane.

Both Zorn and Lane attended a cast party after taping the upcoming Bachelorette: Men Tell All special last weekend — a party that ended with Lane going to the hospital due to a possible concussion.

'Bachelorette' Final Rose Spoilers: Two Proposals Lead To Rose C
Is Bachelorette Kaitlyn Bristowe engaged, and who did she pick — Nick Viall or Shawn Booth? Until the July 27 season finale airs, fans won't know for sure, but there are rumors that the final rose ceremony will be a shocker, with Kaitlyn struggling to decide between two proposals.

Blogger Reality Steve, who has correctly spoiled several seasons of the Bachelor and the Bachelorette, is confident that Kaitlyn will get engaged to fitness instructor Shawn Booth in the very place he first met her — the Bachelor mansion.

Hours after fans watched Ben Higgins get dumped by Bachelorette Kaitlyn Bristowe, reports that he has been picked as the next Bachelor surfaced online. However, the handsome Colorado businessman tells Entertainment Tonight, that the rumors are not true.

"Those conversations haven't happened yet," Higgins told ET on Tuesday. While he's not opposed to scooping up the opportunity as ABC's 20th Bachelor, he shot down the rumors that he's already signed a deal.

'The Bachelorette's' Britt And Brady Are Officially Over

Britt Nilsson
Britt Nilsson and Brady Toops have split up- sorry, Bachelorette fans! According to E! News, the two Bachelorette runner-ups called it quits after less than six months of dating.

Their story was certainly romantic enough. Britt was one of two potential Bachelorettes this season but lost out to Kaitlyn Bristowe in the first episode, when more of the show's male contestants voted for her. Once she was given the boot, Brady- one of the contestants who cast his vote in her direction- quit the show in order to track her down.

And since then, The Bachelorette has given us little updates about t...

'The Bachelorette': Kaitlyn Dumps The One Guy Who's Not A Jerk

7/14/2015 6:32am EDT
The Bachelorette
Isn't The Bachelorette supposed to be about love? Or at least "The Right Reasons?" It doesn't seem like it anymore. Now it's like The Bachelorette is about provoking Nick and Shawn's jealousy war until one of them pops a blood vessel and strangles the other in his sleep.

Which is where we begin this week's Bachelorette- Shawn and Nick having a "man to man" talk that consists of Nick sitting quietly and Shawn hammering him with angry insults. Nick eventually gets in a barb about Shawn's "eskimo brothers" thing (he slept with a girl right after a famous country singer- also, is "eskimo broth...

Nick Viall had his turn (again) last week, so tonight's episode will focus on her dates with Shawn Booth and Ben Higgins.

Last week, Ben H. talked about his vision for the overnight dates, telling Kaitlyn that it's "not about the physical side of the relationship," and he’s "excited to stay up all night and talk." Dropping the no-sex bomb seemed to ra...

'Bachelorette' Kaitlyn Bristowe Has Message For Her Haters: Will
Kaitlyn Bristowe is one of the most talked-about Bachelorette stars in the history of the show, but not all of the chatter has been positive. From kissing too many guys, to sleeping with Nick Viall several episodes before the Fantasy Suite dates, the 30-year-old dance instructor has been taking a 140-character beating on Twitter.

On Monday night's episode, it's likely Kaitlyn will have to face the wrath of more judgmental fans. With two more overnight dates to go, and a rose ceremony elimination, she's definitely going to need the shirt she showed off on Twitter this weekend.

Bachelorette Kaitlyn Bristowe dumped Joe Bailey and Jared Haibon before the overnight dates, but there's more reality TV drama ahead for both guys. Instead of heading home to mend their broken hearts, Joe and Jared went straight for Mexico for another chance at finding love on Bachelor in Paradise.

The Bachelorette
Can you believe we're almost done with The Bachelorette? It's gone by so fast. It was just yesterday that limos were arriving at Bachelorette Mansion and Britt was still a relevant part of the show.

Now, Kaitlyn's whittled the group down to just three dudes, and she'll be judging their relationship mettle in the overnight f--k dates… err, fantasy suites. Same difference. We're not quite there at the start of the hour, though. We open with five men still remaining and Cupcake Chris (last seen weeping alone on a cliffside, freshly dumped) now a distant memory.

It's Ben H.'s turn for a one-o...

'Bachelorette' Kaitlyn Bristowe Admits Dating Vancouver Firefigh
The Bachelorette Kaitlyn Bristowe gives out her final rose on July 27, but there are rumors that her love story with the man she chooses may not last long. Although spoilers indicate that she accepts a proposal from one of her final two guys, there are rumors that a man she dated prior to her gig on Chris Soules' season of the Bachelor is back in her life.

There is very little known about Kaitlyn's personal life before she became a reality TV star — she hasn't discussed her past with her suitors this season, at least on camera.

As if there isn't enough controversy this season with the Nic...

Kaitlyn Bristowe
Bachelorette Kaitlyn Bristowe's season has been one of the most controversial seasons in the show's history, and the drama is far from over. Monday night's overnight dates won't be quite as private as they have been in previous seasons, with rumors that producers entered the fantasy suite with cameras rolling during at least one of Kaitlyn's dates.

When cameras hovered outside Kaitlyn's hotel room door during her intimate one-on-one date with Nick Viall earlier in the season, even the Bachelorette was shocked to find out that everyone could hear them.

Ben Zorn
Bachelorette Kaitlyn Bristowe sent handsome Ben Zorn home on Monday night, leaving many fans wondering how she could ditch one of the nicest guys on the show. Although there will be no happily-ever-after for Kaitlyn and Ben, host Chris Harrison states that viewers "haven't seen the last of him."

Does that mean Zorn is one of the top contenders for the next Bachelor, or is Chris referring to the next time the guys get together on the Men Tell All? Unfortunately, the name of the next Bachelor won't be revealed until after Kaitlyn's season wraps up at the end of July.
