Nick Viall Reveals Fantasy Suite Sex; Andi Dorfman & Josh Murray React
Nick Viall revealed that he and Andi Dorfman had sex in the Fantasy Suite during The Bachelorette’s "After the Final Rose" special Monday night.
Nick Viall Dishes On The Fantasy Suite
Viall broke the long-running Bachelor/Bachelorette protocol when he openly spoke about the level of intimacy between him and Dorfman in the Fantasy Suite. Up on stage and sitting across from Dorfman, the still-heartbroken Viall wanted answers about her feelings for him throughout the show and for how she treated him. “Knowing how in love with you I was, if you weren't in love with me, I'm just not sure why you made love with me," he said to cringes and gasps from the live audience.
“To me, that night, that was like fiancé type of stuff," Viall added. "That meant so much to me. It meant something to me. That meant the world to me.”
Dorfman, taken aback by Viall’s reveal said, “I think that’s kind of below the belt,” adding, "And something that's private and should be kept private. The things I told you were real … The way I kissed you, those things were real."
Andi Dorfman, Josh Murray Address Viall’s Remark
Doing the talk show rounds following the final episode of The Bachelorette, interviewers can’t help but ask Dorfman and her fiance Josh Murray how they feel about Viall’s reveal about having sex with Dorfman. The engaged pair has chosen to remain relatively diplomatic, but have both expressed that they feel Viall’s choice to talk about the private matter was classless.
"I really don't care for Nick that much. I think it was a classless move and very disrespectful, but I feel like she handled it with as much class as possible and that's all we're doing in this situation," Murray told HuffPost Live. "We really could care less about that — that's so far in the past, it's crazy. I mean, we're so much in love."
Dorfman added, “I just felt like, again, [it was] just kind of classless. That's supposed to be private and I don't know what purpose you're accomplishing by doing that. But you know, we're going to take the high road, and I'm not going to let that overshadow the happiness.”
“We get so bogged down so much [by] negativity or this dramatic thing and at the end of the day, I'm walking away happy with a fiance, with somebody that I love, and I don't really want anything to overshadow that,” Dorfman continued.
After the backlash he received for making the private affair public, Viall claimed he never planned to mention it, but that he was driven to it by Dorfman's apparent lack of empathy. Either way, he never wanted to publicly humiliate her. "If I have regrets, I didn't want in any way to humiliate her or make her feel that way and I feel very sorry if she did feel that way, that makes me sad," Viall said. "It is a conversation I wanted to have … and unfortunately, that was my only opportunity to do that. But it's nothing in a million years I would have planned."
