Andi Dorfman and Nick Viall on The Bachelorette.
Kaitlyn Bristowe and Nick on The Bachelorette.
Oh, what might have been between the Wisconsin native and the two women who dumped him on back-to-back heartbreaking finales.
Incredibly, while he was never the fan favorite going up against Josh Murray (Andi's season) or Shawn Booth, Nick got the last laugh:
ABC named Nick Viall The Bachelor for Season 21!
If you watch Bachelor in Paradise online, you've witnessed him lose another girl to Murray (again) in Amanda Stanton, but more significantly:
Nick may not have won the girl, but he won back (or won for the first time) the support of Bachelor Nation. And he will hand out the roses next.
But what about the two women who missed their shot?
Nick was head over heels for Andi, then possibly even more so with Kaitlyn. Bristowe supports him now, but is she having buyer's remorse?
Doubtful. She and Booth seem pretty happy. Andi, though? You gotta wonder about that one, given how hard she hates that d-bag Josh.
Just saying. We're curious. Anyway, here's a look back at Nick's road to The Bachelor and the two cute brunettes who let him get away!

He Went There
No, Nick. Just no.
