He’s baaack! Andi Dorfman’s reject, Nick Viall, makes his hotly anticipated Bachelorette debut on the June 8 episode, when he asks Kaitlyn Bristowe if he can join the competition.
-“She tells the men that Nick approached her and that she’s still deciding if she should keep him around,” says an insider. “She says she’s confused.”
But behind the scenes, In Touch has learned she wasn’t so conflicted. Moments after filming her talk with the guys, reveals a witness, Kaitlyn headed straight into Nick’s arms. “They were in deep conversation for about 15 minutes,” says a witness to their secret rendezvous on a dock at NYC’s Chelsea Piers (see photo above). “Then they started kissing.”
-The intimate moment was no coincidence. The former dance instructor, 30, and the polarizing businessman, 34, had an emotional romance before Kaitlyn began filming the ABC series. “They were talking to each other multiple times a week and Face Timing. It was intense,” says the insider. “She was already very much into Nick and was ecstatic that he crashed the season.”
-She doesn’t bother hiding it. “From that point on, Kaitlyn begins to ignore every other guy,” says the insider. And Nick quickly becomes the most hated man in the house. “They start hazing him and even throw his clothes in the river.” But Nick doesn’t care. “He knew he was going to make it far. He only cared about Kaitlyn.”
Kaitlyn and Nick had a connection from the very beginning,” says a source.
