    Ask Nick - Playing Long Distance Chicken

    Ask Nick - Playing Long Distance Chicken

    Welcome back to another episode of The Viall Files: Ask Nick Edition! We’re back to answer your burning questions about the world of dating and relationships. Before getting to our callers, we discuss the idea of making a dating shopping list - is it setting you up for failure by judging people too quickly, or does it reduce the amount of disheartening dates on your calendar? Our first caller just got out of a four year situationship with a “man child” she works with after he made her the bottom of his priority list. To make matters worse, he then had a public melt down - in the office. Our next caller is playing a game of moving chicken with her long distance boyfriend. He lives in their hometown and she’s been commuting back four hours on weekends to see him from her new city. She knows she won’t be happy if she moves back, and needs to figure out how to ask him to try out city life on a trial basis.Our final caller is wondering if her boyfriend’s friend is acting too much like his girlfriend, including buying him an expensive vintage jacket for Christmas. Is there something going on between them that our caller doesn’t know about?
    “If you get back together with him, it is 100% your fault.”

    Ask Nick Updates Special Episode - Part 4

    Ask Nick Updates Special Episode - Part 4

    Welcome back to The Viall Files! Today we have another special “where are they now” update show where we give you updates from our past callers, to see what’s happened in their situations and relationships since appearing on the show. We bring on our first caller who had a tumultuous relationship with her birth mother and wasn’t sure if it was better to forgive her and try to establish peace, or if she should move on and prioritize less toxic relationships. Our second caller had gone to a Harry Styles concert with a platonic guy friend from her apartment building, only to have things turn romantic. Has she listened to Nick’s advice and addressed the shift in dynamic head-on? Finally, we get an update from our caller that was thinking about hooking up with her boss’s - despite him showing some fuckboy qualities. Whose number did she get at the family holiday party, and who booty called her while with her boss? We also have some written updates! Our caller who was debating moving out from her boyfriend despite being financially dependent, the texting office hours question of if a guy who ended things might want to pursue her in the future, and our caller who needed to break up with her ex - again - all write back in to let us know exactly what happened. 
    To catch up on all of these callers original questions please see the show numbers:

    Going Deeper with Brad Goreski - A Friendship Lost, 2023 Fashion Trends, and Surrogacy

    Welcome back to another episode of The Viall Files, Going Deeper Edition! Today we are joined by celebrity stylist and reality TV star Brad Goreski. Before getting into the interview, we discuss Paris Hilton’s baby news and surrogacy, along with Oscar nominations. We then bring on Brad for his interview, immediately addressing how the pandemic cost Brad and Nick their friendship and why Brad wasn’t invited to the engagement party. Brad discusses his own marriage and new show before letting us know what is in his shopping basket for 2023… and what belongs in a casket. We find Brad and Nick on WikiFeet and hear that Nick asked Brad to take his pants off at The Grove. We also bring on our Texting Office Hours caller who complained about her friend via text only to have that friend mistakenly read it. How should she address the situation?
    “I’ll invite you to the bachelor party to strip for all of us.”

    Bachelor Recap w/ Ariana Madix | The Viall Files w/ Nick Viall

    Bachelor Recap w/ Ariana Madix | The Viall Files w/ Nick Viall

    Welcome back to another episode of The Viall Files: Bachelor Recap Edition! We’re back to break down night one of Zach’s season, from the limo entrances to a meltdown at dawn. This week we’re joined by Ariana Madix of Vanderpump Rules, who gives us some Season 10 teases before jumping into the episode. Zach gets some advice from Sean Lowe before 30 women join him at the mansion, including Christina in a party bus and Mercedes walking a pig. The five women from the live show return to see Zach again, and Brianna is hoping to add a first impression rose from Zach to the one already in her hand. Who goes home before the rose ceremony, and what does the season trailer imply? We talk about it all.
    “There’s a bit of Wedding Crashers ‘don’t ever leave me because I’ll find you’ energy at the end.”

    Ask Nick - F*cking My Friend’s Situationship

    Ask Nick - F*cking My Friend’s Situationship

    Welcome back to another episode of The Viall Files: Ask Nick Edition! We’re back to answer your burning questions about the world of dating and relationships! Before getting to our callers, Nick shares a friend’s dating story and how moving too quickly (and ignoring the advice of friends) can lead to a relationship ending. And we have our latest Break Up Song of the Week submission from Amanda before jumping into our callers. Our first caller is currently hooking up with her friend’s situationship, and thinks he wants to date her despite not wanting to commit to her friend. Do his actions prove that he’s ready for commitment? Our next caller was in an open relationship with her husband due to being long distance. However, he’s finally moved home and reestablished monogamy. But our caller is missing the days of sleeping with other people, and doesn’t know how to tell her husband. Our final caller is wondering if her boyfriend drinks too much. She’s addressed the situation before, but he’s lied to her about drinking and how much he’s drinking since their conversation. Can this issue be resolved, or will it only continue to get worse?
    “Lying to you wasn’t as important as having a drink.”

    The Engagement Episode with Natalie Joy

    The Engagement Episode with Natalie Joy

    Welcome back to another episode of The Viall Files, Going Deeper Edition! Today we are joined by Nick’s fiancée Natalie Joy for a special Engagement Episode. We discuss everything from when Natalie started dropping hints, to when Nick started ring shopping, to the run of show for the proposal. Their perfect night involved a fake event, hiring actors, flying in an event planner and vinyl designer, and even Tom Hanks finding out about the proposal! Nick and Natalie laugh (and cry) about their relationship and a future together. And we wrap up the episode by talking to a caller who needs to uninvite relatives from wedding dress shopping. 
    “She’s very nosy, which is frustrating.”
