ICYMI, Nick Viall Is Sadly No Longer Engaged — but He’s an Actor!
Is Nick Viall still engaged? Months after a painfully awkward interview during the Season 21 finale aftershow, the former Bachelor star and winner Vanessa Grimaldi called it quits on their romance. Back in August, the couple confirmed the end of their engagement to E! News.

“It’s with a great amount of heartbreak for the both of us as we have decided to end our engagement,” the duo told the outlet at the time. “We gave this relationship our all and we are saddened that we did not get the fairytale ending we hoped for. We will continue to be there for each other no matter what. This hasn’t been an easy decision, however, as we part ways, we do so with lots of love and admiration for each other.”
His relationship may be over, but Nick, 37, has something else to focus on these days: his acting career! The handsome reality star has a guest role on the Wednesday, Nov. 29, episode of ABC’s Speechless. Nick plays Tyson, a new actor pal that JJ (Micah Fowler) meets during a college visit.

To be able to be a part of something you never even dream of is an incredible feeling. Tonight on @speechlessabc I guest star as Tyson in my first scripted role. The entire cast is hilarious, talented, and overall amazing especially this stud @micahdfowler. I geeked out when working with @driverminnie, but I think I played it cool. Check it out tonight 8:30/7:30c on @abcnetwork. Hope you enjoy it. #abc #speechless
As Tyson, the Bachelor in Paradise alum has to play a dean. However, he doesn’t seem all that comfortable taking on the part. “I’m really struggling with my character,” he says in a preview for the episode. “Hopefully I’ll just be amazing when we shoot it for some reason.”
Nick took to Instagram on Monday to gush over his experience working on the show. “To be able to be a part of something you never even dream of is an incredible feeling. Tonight on @speechlessabc I guest star as Tyson in my first scripted role,” he captioned a behind-the-scenes pic. “The entire cast is hilarious, talented, and overall amazing especially this stud @micahdfowler. I geeked out when working with @driverminnie, but I think I played it cool.”
Speechless airs on ABC Wednesdays at 8:30 p.m. EST.
