'Bachelor' star Nick Viall discloses he was rooting for Jed Wyatt before the 'girlfriend scandal'

Bachelor star Nick Viall slammed Bachelorette suitor Jed Wyatt after rumors about him having a girlfriend began to gain ground. 

Hannah Brown's pool of eligible suitors on 'The Bachelorette' season 15 is getting smaller by the day as only a handful of them are left vying for Brown's heart. 

Right from day one, viewers have been treated to a new plot twist every week. Starting from Scott Anderson who appeared on the show with a girlfriend back home, Cameron Ayala's possessive efforts to try and get Brown's attention, the battle of Luke Parker and Luke Stone, to Parker's toxic masculinity issues and jealousy, we have witnessed it all over the past few weeks. 

Most recently, new drama arose after rumors spread stating Jed Wyatt allegedly had a girlfriend back home while he was on 'The Bachelorette.' At a red carpet event, MEA WorldWide (MEAWW) got in touch with Bachelor star Nick Viall and spoke to him regarding his podcast, and his thoughts on the rumors surrounding Wyatt and his alleged girlfriend back home. 



Viall appeared on the 21st season of 'The Bachelor' after he finished as a runner-up in two consecutive seasons of 'The Bachelorette' and a season on 'Bachelor in Paradise.' During his time as the Bachelor, Viall proposed to Vanessa Grimaldi during the season finale but unfortunately, the couple broke up that following August. 

Currently, Viall has a podcast known as 'The Viall Files', talking about it at the NBA awards red carpet Viall said, "I know there's always a lot to learn if you just listen, which I try to listen as much as I try to talk. It's just tough on a podcast." 

Disclosing what he thinks about the rumors surrounding Wyatt and his girlfriend back home, Viall said, "I don't know. There's a lot of it, a lot of evidence. I tend to believe it. He probably should have broken up with her. Not cool Jed."

Opening up about who he was rooting for all this while on 'The Bachelorette' season 15, Viall said he was rooting for Wyatt but that was before he heard that he had a girlfriend back home. 

Talking about Brown, Viall revealed that she is his favorite. "I think Hannah's doing great. She's my favorite. You know, it's a very tough position to be in and I think she's handling it really well." 

'The Bachelorette' season 15 airs every Monday night on ABC. Check your local listings for more information.
