Andi Dorfman is “Ok” with Nick Viall being named the next Bachelor!
As we previously reported, Bachelor Nation was left in shock on Tuesday when it was announced that the longtime reality TV vet was named the star of the ABC hit’s 21st season. Talk about a curveball!
Obviously, as many of the dating competition’s alums chimed in on the selection, fans turned their eyes towards Miz Dorfman who famously wrote about their Bachelorette relationship in her memoir It’s Not Okay: Turning Heartbreak into Happily Never After. While the juiciest parts of Andi’s book were definitely about Josh Murray, not the constant runner-up Viall, her depiction of Nick wasn’t necessarily the most flattering thing either.
Nonetheless, it seems the 29-year-old couldn’t be happier about Nick’s fourth attempt to find love. In case you forgot, the 35-year-old was the runner-up during Andi AND Kaitlyn Bristowe‘s seasons — oh, and he had a stint on Bachelor In Paradise too. Anywho, on Nick’s big news Andi dished to Us Weekly:
“I’m happy for Nick. It’s been a long road for him, but he has always been genuine about wanting to find love. So I’m happy to see him get another shot at it, and I wish him all the best.”
Of course, this statement is very similar to the kind words she wrote on Twitter (below).
Congrats, Nick. It’s been a long road but you’ve always been genuine and real about wanting to find love. Now it’s your turn! Best of luck ├░┼╕┼Æ┬╣

Aww! And Viall clearly appreciated the support as he responded:
LOVES it! TBH, we couldn’t be more excited to see Nick suit up as The Bachelor when the show returns this January on ABC!
