EXCLUSIVE: ‘Bachelor’ Couple Nick Viall and Vanessa Grimaldi’s Advice for Rachel Lindsay: ‘Take Things Slow’
Nick Viall and Vanessa Grimaldi are still going strong!
ET caught up with the engaged couple at Clayton and Ellen Kershaw’s 5th Annual Ping Pong 4 Purpose charity event for their organization, Kershaw’s Challenge, in Los Angeles on Thursday, where they gave us an update on what it’s been like living together and why they haven’t been keeping up with Rachel Lindsay’s season of The Bachelorette.
“It’s great,” Viall, founder of The Polished Gent, told ET’s Lauren Zima of life at home with his fiancée.
Just last month, the two moved into an apartment together in downtown Los Angeles, and they already have a few favorite hobbies. One of them is cooking, something Grimaldi says they “both enjoy.”
“I like to cook but I wouldn’t say that I cook all of the time or equally as good,” added Viall.
As fans of the couple know, Viall jumped right into season 24 of Dancing With the Stars after The Bachelor wrapped, which didn’t give them too much time to relax or simply enjoy each other’s company. That explains part of the reason why they’re not all caught up with what’s going on with The Bachelorette.
“I haven’t seen it,” Viall admitted. “We’ve just been very busy, you know, I think decompressing off of last season.”
“But we here that she’s engaged so, that’s awesome,” he continued. “I’m very happy for her. Whoever that is, she made the right call, because she made it for herself.”
The two are a great example of keeping the romance alive post-Bachelor, so obviously we had to ask what tips and tricks they have for Lindsay and her soon-to-be-announced fiancé.
“Just take things slow,” Viall advised.
Grimaldi agreed, adding, “Get to know each other outside of Bachelor world.”
Although the lovebirds have been out of the loop with Lindsay’s love journey, they told ET they are planning to watch Bachelor in Paradise when it returns for its fourth season Aug. 14 on ABC.
“I will definitely be watching,” Viall said, explaining he was “hopeful” it would come back following the temporary halt in production earlier this month. “I took a little time off, but how can anyone miss Paradise?”
“It sounds like they did the right thing by investigating whatever it was [that went down],” he added. “But ultimately it sounds like more things got blown out of proportion because of the media than what actually happened. It’s just good to see that it’s back.”
