Viall made it all the way to the finale of Dorfman's season, but she ended up breaking his heart when she chose to accept a proposal from Josh Murray instead. Of course, this wasn't the last time fans would see Viall.

The following season of "The Bachelorette," Viall returned to woo Kaitlyn Bristowe.

Nick Viall said he didn't care about money when becoming The Bachelor

During a recent appearance on Jason Tartick's "Trading Secrets" podcast, Viall admitted that he was eager to find love on the reality show, and that the money he was paid didn't matter to him at all. "I didn't really care about the money," he said (via People). "I mean, I needed the money at the time, but I would've done it for free. It's stupid for anyone who's offered that role [to decline it]. Nickel-and-diming over $20,000 is the dumbest thing you can do given what you can do with that opportunity gives you," he added.

While Viall admitted that he didn't haggle over his pay for the season, there was one demand that he did have for production before he officially signed on to become the network's new leading man.
