The Bachelor 2017 leading man Nick Viall has received negative remarks even though the season where he supposed to star has yet to premiere.

The Bachelor 2016 Ben Higgins to his rescue and offered some advice to Viall. The reality star admitted that finding love in a reality show and making it work will not come easy. “You can come out of this with a very serious relationship, but before you do, make sure it’s someone you want to commit to. Make sure it’s someone you want to pursue, that you wanna work through all this with, because if not, it can get hard,” he said in an interview with CBS local.

Higgins added that he and Lauren made everything run smoothly is because they are counting on each other to get through a different situation.

Lauren Bushnell’s fiancé shared his insight just the same although he has different situation to Viall. Fans loved Higgins from the beginning and throughout the show. Many only got disappointed during the final rose ceremony where he chose Bushnell instead of JoJo Fletcher. Many think Higgins is in love with JoJo rather than Lauren.

In Viall’s case, he was immediately slammed after he was named last month as the next star of the Bachelor 2017 . One reason could be because he is not on the top fan-favorite for the show. Many believe that Viall robbed the role from Luke Pell. Fans were not pleased of ABC choice too because of Viall’s history in the Bachelor nation. He appeared three times in the franchise – twice in The Bachelorette and in the recent Bachelor In Paradise Season 3.

Meanwhile, Higgins and Bushnell celebrated their one-year anniversary since they first meet in The Bachelor 2016.

The couple was spotted at the recent iHeartRadio Music Festival in Las Vegas. They also bumped into some of The Bachelor 2016 contestants in the two-day festiva.  Fletcher, Becca Tilley, and twins Haley and Emily Ferguson were spotted hanging out with the couple, E! News reported.

Higgins and Bushnell will also come back in reality show with their Ben & Lauren: Happily Ever After. The show is set to premieres on Oct. 11 on Freeform.

The Bachelor 2017, on the other hand, is set to debut on ABC early next year.
