Jan 22, 10:00 AM

This week, Jason is joined by one of Bachelor Nation’s most well-known personalities and podcast king, Nick Viall!

If you watch reality TV, then you’re probably seen Nick come across your TV screen over the last decade between appearances on The Bachelorette twice, Bachelor in Paradise, The Bachelor, Dancing With The Stars, Special Forces, and the Masked Singer. However, Nick has leveraged his reality TV fame into numerous lucrative business endeavors, including establishing one of the top culture podcasts in the world. The Viall Files has over 150 million downloads in the last five years. Most recently, Nick announced that he has founded his own media company, Envy Media and audio first lifestyle company focused on pop culture and relationship themed shows.

Nick gives insight to how Special Forces differentiates from other reality shows, not focusing on what you cannot control, how he protects his mental health, the benefits of being in the public eye, the importance of having women voices involved with the podcast, how he landed the exclusive podcast with Gypsy Rose Blanchard, and how creating a comfortable environment for guests has been critical to the success of his shows.Nick also reveals what podcasts he considers competition, how Katie and Dana ended up being the first podcast he’s producing that he is not on, how the podcasting industry is changing, what he hopes is inspiring to others, why he reinvests in his businesses, what his relationship with Bachelor Nation is like, and comparing his time on Special Forces to other reality shows he has been on. When did he first work with a publicist?  Did he have to pay to get Gypsy Rose on the podcast? Who is his dream guest? What is he hoping to accomplish in 2024?

Nick reveals all that and so much more in another episode you can’t afford to miss!
