Nick Viall Was 'Always The Bridesmaid And Never The Bride'

When the next "Bachelor" Nick Viall goes back on the hunt for love in January, the 35-year-old reality star wants you to know that he's totally content with the fact that this will be his fourth time on the franchise.

In a new interview with People, Viall opened up about the fact that he "was always a bridesmaid" and "never a bride."

In other words, Nick Viall has tried his luck at love time and time again, only to end up empty-handed -- with the entire world watching. At some point, you have to wonder if he feels sorry for himself at all.

Nick opened up to People, saying,

It's frustrating that there is this idea that I was always a bridesmaid, never a bride kind... It's not fun knowing that people know me as the guy who professed his love for two women on national TV, only to realize that they probably weren't the ones for me. But I'm actually really happy with the way things played out.

I get it. Professing your love for TWO WOMEN on national TV only to have everything go south has to be a little disheartening at times. But Nick is obviously confident that he'll eventually find the one.

Whether that happens at the end of the next "Bachelor" season, or four other additional seasons from now, remains unknown.

At this point, it's kind of inspiring that Viall would even continue to risk his belief in love after Andi Dorfman's season of "The Bachelorette" in 2014, in which Nick was the runner-up.

Just a year after, he came in second place again thanks to Kaitlyn Bristowe.

Most recently, while on "Bachelor in Paradise," Nick Viall and fellow contestant Jen Saviano started to heat things up, but as you can probably tell, it didn't work out and Viall is still single.

Despite all of this, he's still being open-minded about this whole televised search for love thing.

Hey, Nick, that kind of optimism will surely get you to the promised land!
