You’ve got to read the latest Bachelorette spoilers below …

Kaitlyn Bristowe and Britt Nilsson Picture

First of all, if you don’t want to read The Bachelorette spoilers regarding which of the two cute Bachelor castoffs keeps the job this spring, turn back now.

Turn. Back. Now. Major spoilers lie ahead. Are we clear?

Good. Alright, let’s get into that, and the return of Nick …

First of all, we know that Kaitlyn Bristowe triumphs over Britt Nilsson by virtue of the guys’ vote, assuming what many feel was her rightful place all along.

Britt will have some undefined role this season (rather than just being kicked to the curb in episode one), but it’s Kaitlyn’s show. Which brings us to Nick.

Past contestants returning on The Bachelor and The Bachelorette is not unprecedented, and apparently, Nick Viall is back for another go of it this time.

Is he just looking for 15 more minutes of fame or that fabled fiancee type stuff he thought he found with Andi, but ultimately eluded him on the finale?

It’s unclear, but according to the Oracle of The Bachelorette Spoilers, Reality Steve, Viall was spotted initially watching Bristowe filming the series.

Then, the Milwaukee native was later was reportedly filming alone with Bristowe in New York at Chelsea Piers … where they were also seen making out.

“It sure as hell seems” like Nick is a contestant based on this, according to Steve, who is rarely wrong, and adds, “I’m just putting two and two together.”

“He wanted on the show to ask to date her, and then they’re seen making out alone while being filmed, so it sure looks and sounds like Kaitlyn is up for it.”

Is this true? We’ll have to see, but don’t bet against it. During The Bachelor season that just wrapped, Nick gushed about the Canadian dance instructor.

“I’m pretty I would never be bored around Kaitlyn,” Viall tweeted.

“Kaitlyn is the total package… Oh and Kaitlyn is incredible.”

What do you think? Are you excited to see Nick?! Would he and Kaitlyn be a cool couple? Or should she focus her efforts on someone new and different?
