The 38-year-old dished to Us Weekly at the Nick Viall for Plenty of Fish Dine and Dish event in NYC on Tuesday night exactly what was (or wasn’t) going down in the DMs:

“She’s beautiful. Is it flirtation? I just think I was complimenting her Instagrams. It was cheeky. No, maybe I’m just dense, I don’t know.”


The reality TV personality continued, sharing that having The O.C. alum on his show “was a dream,” referring to her as a “dream girl.”

Duh! What’s not to like? The Summer Roberts portrayer is obviously gorgeous, starred in two hit shows (The O.C. and Hart of Dixie) and several movies (The Last Kiss and Jumper), too!

Viall elaborated (below):

“I always had a crush on Rachel. I told her that on my podcast. She was really cool. She’s a lot of fun, has a great sense of humor and she knows how to give me a hard time, and I really appreciate that. Yeah, she’s become a fun and cool friend.”

But could they be more than friends? He simply replied when asked if he sees them dating in the future:

“I mean she’s a dream, I’ll say that.”

When Hayden Christensen‘s ex appeared on his podcast in July, Nick admitted to “professionally” sliding into her DMs to invite her on the show, sharing:

“I slid into her DMs, professionally… I knew that Rachel was a big Bachelor fan. I’ve been a fan of Rachel for some time. I had noticed throughout, maybe the past couple of years, there was one time I think you might have commented on my Instagram and I noticed it. I was like, ‘[Gasp!] Really?’ This is really exciting for me.”

Briar Rose‘s momma laughed it off, joking about him not hitting her up sooner:

“You didn’t slide into my DMs then. You could have told me you were excited then.”

What do U think about this potential couple, Perezcious readers? From what Nick said it doesn’t seem like romance is totally out of the question! Sound OFF (below) in the comments with all your thoughts!!
