The next Bachelor? Nick Viall would “seriously consider” it.

The Bachelorette runner-up – who was sent packing by Bachelorette stars Kaitlyn Bristowe and Andi Dorfman – told HuffPost’s “Here To Make Friends” podcast that he might be up for a round three if he were the one handing out roses.

“I mean, to be perfectly honest, I would seriously consider it,” Viall said to hosts Emma Gray and Claire Fallon. “It’s obviously an incredible opportunity. “

Viall said he’s “comfortable” with himself, and knows what he’s “looking for” in a partner. But, he expressed his concerns of not wanting to be “pigeonholed” as it would mark his third attempt at finding love on a reality show.

“For me, I would be in a different boat,” Viall said. “All of the sudden, for the third time I’m going on a show to find love.”

ABC has yet to confirm who will be the next Bachelor, but listen to the full interview below.
