Nick, 36, wasted no time reaching out to Amanda after her split from his Bachelorette nemesis Josh Murray. Nick and Josh vied for Amanda’s heart during Season 3 of the spin-off series Bachelor in Paradise, but ultimately, Josh was the one to propose. The 26-year-old mother-of-two said yes during the finale in September.

But rumors of their breakup started swirling in December, which Amanda confirmed earlier this month. “We were having problems for a little while,” she exclusively told Life & Style. “I’m OK.”

Some were so disgusted by his behavior that they threatened to walk off set.

“Most of the women complained he was a complete pig,” the insider shared. “He would say things like, ‘Wow, the things I could do to you,’ and ‘You have the nicest rack I’ve ever seen.’”
