AceShowbiz - "The Bachelor" star Nick Viall was pictured having a casual lunch with a beautiful brunette on Wednesday, July 19 in Los Angeles. But instead of with fiancee Vanessa Grimaldi, the 36-year-old hunk enjoyed the lunch in sunny L.A. with "Bachelor in Paradise" alum Ashley Iaconetti.
Donning a casual gray tee, jeans and loosely laced khaki boots, Nick was seen chatting with Ashley over bites at Joan's on Third in West Hollywood. Ashley, meanwhile, looked casually stunning in a flirty wrap and cami. She paired the top with distressed jeans and nude heels, while putting a red lipstick on her plump lips.
The Access Hollywood reporter, who previously competed for Chris Soules' heart on "The Bachelor", could be seen leaning across the table to show Nick something on her phone. It remained to be seen as to why the two stepped out to get some grub together, since they never had a romantic spark despite appearing in "Paradise" season 3.
In addition, Nick and Vanessa seemed to be doing just fine. Recently, Nick took to his Instagram account to share a photo of him supporting Vanessa's first fundraiser in her hometown of Montreal, Canada. The fundraiser was for No Better You charity, which focuses on advancing education by providing tools and programs for students. "Couldn't be more proud of my girl @vanessagrimaldi30 for raising over 30k in her first fundraising event for @nobetteryou. Congrats babe!! #happy #proud #charity," so he captioned the photo.
