ABC is still searching for the perfect women to potentially pair with Nick Viall in Season 21 of “The Bachelor.” Former “Real Housewives of Orange County” star Lauri Peterson is lending the network a helping hand, pushing her daughter to audition.
On Thursday Lauri retweeted a casting message from “The Bachelor” producer Elan Gale. She tagged her daughter, Ashley Zarlin in the message urging her to act fast. She then retweeted a story from the Inquisitr about Zarlin’s potential participation, tagging her daughter and Gale. She suggested that she was open to the idea once more, though it remains unclear whether Zarlin will participate.
Despite the interest from Peterson’s daughter and many other women around the world, Nick is nervous about being “The Bachelor.” During an appearance on “Good Morning America” on Thursday, Viall admitted he wasn’t certain he would accept the role right away. After thinking about it for “a couple of days,” he signed on and the rest was history.
“It’s a huge responsibility, but it’s obviously an amazing opportunity, so ultimately, I accepted,” Viall said (via E! Online).
The official announcement that Nick had been chosen as “The Bachelor” in Season 21 was made on Aug. 30. The news came as a surprise to front runners Luke Pell and Chase McNary. Luke, who was rumored to have been ABC’s pick, shared a photo of a quote on Instagram in which he suggested that the timing just wasn’t right. He thanked fans for their “love and support,” adding that he had experienced so many “unexpected changes” in the months leading up to the network’s decision. Chase shared similar sentiments, writing that while he won’t be continuing he search for love on ABC, he refuses to give up.
