6 Things You NEED To Know About 'The Bachelorette' Hunk Nick Viall

'The Bachelorette's Nick Viall
What's the intel on 'The Bachelorette' contestant Nick Viall?

The Bachelorette this time around, Kaitlyn Bristowe, is decidedly The Worst. (Remember how she almost spoiled the entire season via Snapchat? Ugh.) However, her last men standing are some of the best suitors ever. Here's the skinny on Nick Viall, a midwestern born hunk whom Bristowe is rumored to still be dating post-show ... for now.

1. He is athletic.
Viall, who, SPOILER ALERT, is rumored to win the show and Kaitlyn Bristowe's heart, was a track and field star at Waukesha North High School in his native Wisconsin. 

2. He was active in college.
He worked as a reporter for his collegiate paper, The UWM Post. He attended the University of Wisconsin at Milwaukee, graduating in 2004.

3. He is a Midwesterner, tried and true.
Viall currently lives in Chicago and is an account exec for SalesForce, selling computer software. But make no mistake. He is a Milwaukee-ite through and through. He even pointed out that he will always call the city home in his Twitter bio. He isn't tweet happy and his feed doesn't reveal too much about "who" is Nick Viall, which is probably giving the ABC brass and Bachelorette producers a heaving sigh of relief. 

4. He comes from a big family. Make that huge.
Viall is the second eldest of 11 (!!!) siblings. His closest brother is seven years his junior.

5. He has a bit of a big mouth. 
He was filmed on a flight, talking loudly about the season and eating Cheetos while doing so. That's a maaj no-no and we've got to think that producers reprimanded him posthaste. (Talking about the season in public is the "no-no" part, not the Cheetos thing. They may taste super yummy, but they are so bad for you and leave cheese dust all over your digits.)

6. If he looks familiar, he should.
Bachelorette fans may recognize Nick Viall as a finalist from season 10, where he romanced and made it to the final two for Andi Dorfman.
