Nick Viall from "The Bachelor 2017" stars in Season 21 of the ABC reality dating competition series. He was previously one of the bachelors vying for the affection of Andi Dorfman in Season 10 of the ABC's "The Bachelorette" in 2014.

He is a software sales executive for and lives in Chicago, Illinois. He graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee in 2004 with a Bachelor's degree in Business Administration. He is the second oldest of eleven children.

"The Bachelor"

When Bachelorette Andi Dorfman said goodbye to Nick Viall just as he was preparing to pick out a ring for her, he was devastated. When Nick walked up to Kaitlyn Bristowe with an engagement ring in his pocket, only to be sent home, he was crushed. How could one man endure so much heartbreak? If you believe that "what doesn't kill you makes you stronger," Nick from Milwaukee, Wisconsin, is back stronger than ever, ready and eager to begin his search for true love.

Bachelor Nation was skeptical when Nick first fell for Andi. However, once they came to know him better, they realized he was sincere about his feelings for her. Then Nick was totally enraptured with Kaitlyn, but once again, he was not the one to get the final rose. And when Nick took another chance to find love on the latest installment of Bachelor in Paradise, viewers were excited and truly happy for him. Unfortunately, it wasn't meant to be, leaving everyone to wonder if the sensitive and self-made Midwestern salesman would ever find the woman he would spend the rest of his life with.

Brokenhearted, but not broken, Nick returned to Chicago, ready to launch his new business venture, but instead his journey on Bachelor in Paradise made him a fan favorite, with women and men across the country rooting for him to become the Bachelor and continue on his quest to find love.

A graduate of the University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee, with a double major in accounting and supply chain management, Nick is one of the most accomplished and successful Bachelors. He seems to have it all – except for his one true love.

One of eleven siblings, Nick maintains close ties with his family. His parents, Chris and Mary, have been married for thirty-seven years. Nothing would make them happier than to see Nick find what they have found in each other. When he's not spending time with friends and family, Nick enjoys traveling, beach volleyball and rooting for his beloved Green Bay Packers. He's a charming man's man, whom the ladies just can't get enough of.

After all these years, and all the heartbreak, it's finally Nick's turn to hand out the roses. Will he finally find that love he's craved? He believes in finding love on the series and hopes it is his time now.

"The Bachelorette"

Nick considers himself to be a city person and says his favorite flower is "A rose ... duh," while his three all-time favorite movies are "The Shawshank Redemption," "Dumb & Dumber" and "Snatch." He has no tattoos.

Here is an interview with Nick Viall ("Bachelorette"):

What is your ideal mate's personality like?

Someone who is truly confident in herself and expects a lot but gives as much. Someone who wants to bring out the best in me.

What is the most romantic present you have ever received and why?

100 reasons why they love me. It was genius!

What is the most romantic present you have ever given?

A fairytale book based on our relationship with pictures I drew.

What's your biggest date fear?

I don't really have one, but going on a date with someone who ended up having a boyfriend and running into him would suck.

If you could do/have any job in the world, what would it be and why?

It would be awesome to know how to sing and be some sort of performer; to feed off other's people's energy is intense. The feeling they must feel would be cool. Too bad I can't sing.
