Nick Viall Is Officially ‘The Bachelor’ & The Internet Cannot Deal

Admittedly, I’m not the biggest fans of Bachelor Nation. Honestly, it’s a bit disturbing to watch large groups of people compete for one person’s affection. (I’m just trying to get one guy to buy me an ice cream cone.) Furthermore, as a realist, I find it quite alarming when people say  they’ve “fallen in love” despite having only been around one another for a few months at best. And, we won’t even get into Bachelor Nation’s blatant diversity problem. But, that neither here nor there. Yesterday, ABC put the entire internet in shambles when they announced for the upcoming season, The Bachelor is going to be Nick Viall.


Bachelor Nation host Chris Harrison told PEOPLE about the decision saying, “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. It’s about giving him his chance to find love. Who deserves it more than him?”

So why is this so controversial?!

First and foremost we can’t understand why Viall is still a member of Bachelor Nation, to begin with. The man has been the runerup TWO times, missing out on getting engaged to The Bachelorette‘s Andi Dorfman and Kaitlyn Bristowe, and he’s also currently competing on Bachelor in Paradise. (I mean a guy has to make his coins the best way he can.) Needless to say, Viall isn’t the most popular choice among Bachelor fans, and many took to their twitter accounts to express disbelif that someone finallyhad picked Viall after all this time.

This fan gleefully expressed her disbelief.

 

Another compared him to tragic Juan Pablo.

 

This fan just refused to believe the news.

 

And Bachelor Nation’s Chad Johnson took to Twitter to make fun of the 35-year old Bachelor’s age.

I’m so confused by all of this! Should I watch this upcoming season of The Bachelor or nah? Either way, it seems like I have just as good of a chance of finding “true love” if I continue to swipe right on Tinder.
