Transcript for 'Bachelorette' Contestant Nick Viall: 'I Just Need to Move Forward'
Very good information. Thank you so much, rich, thank you. Well now to the stunning end to the "The bachelorette," and Dorfman picked josh Murray leaving nick Viall 33-year-old software sales executive dumped by and Dorfman before he even got a chance to pick out a ring. Totally shocked me. Reporter: The emotional season ending instead with and engaged to former pro baseball player josh Murray but after the final rose we learned nick who had been a front-runner ever since willing the first impression road made multiple steps to contact and. She's not ready for you yet. Reporter: Even passing on a mysterious letter. Finally the two would come face to face resulting in one of the most talked about mopes in "The bachelorette" history. If you weren't in love with me, I'm just not sure why you made love with me. I don't -- Well, first of all, I think that's -- kind of below the belt. Something that should be private and kept private. Another twist, that letter nick wrote posted on the show's Facebook page riding in part "If you're truly happy with your decision then I want that happiness to continue for you. I just know I would much rather turn my life upside down and risk it all to have amazing with you." And nick Viall joins us now. Nick, I mean, I don't know what this has been like for you. All of this attention and you write this letter to win this girl back and your letter is being read out loud. You're very open and you were very vulnerable. We don't see men do that often. How are you feeling? How are you doing. I'm okay. It's been an extraordinary few days. I don't think I really even have taken it all in so I'm doing okay. I'm hanging in there? Are you till in love with her? You know, I think Monday was a lot of closure that I needed and she's obviously in a very happy relationship and very happy for the both of them so I very much have accepted her decision and, you know, looking to move on but she'll always have a place in my heart. She's an incredib woman and so, yeah, I just need to move forward. When you listen to what you said to her, I mean you clearly thought she felt the same way about you. Did she lead you on? You know, I think I was a little taken back on Monday by her demeanor and some of the ships she said but at the same time I remember and as a genuine and loving person as as much as Monday night was an emotionally charged and kind of overwhelming night for me, you know, I'm sure it was difficult for her too so it's a tough situation for myself and probably for her, so I hope not certainly. But you know I'll always think fondly on the experience. You revealed on the after the final rose episode which was a live broadcast that the two of you had made love. She was upset, said it was below the belt. Looking back do you wish you hadn't said that and shown more discretion. I spent two incredible months with and and I shared a lot of meaningful moments with her not just, you know, what I mention, I think what maybe looking back what's disappoint something that comment obviously it's polarizing and controversial and maybe kind of took away from the relationship itself and I certainly hope -- I didn't intend to put her on the spot or hurt her feelings and for that I feel bad about that. You go the a lot of backlash on social media. People were very upset. I've heard of that a little bit and certainly not my intention but it's not something that certainly I planned. I was just surprised as anyone. But at the same time, you know, I don't think it's -- I don't think sex is anything anyone should be ashamed about talking about but at the same time, yeah, I mean I wish I could have made been more delicate and maybe talked about the, you know, everything that was meaningful to me. You can tell your heart was in the right place. Nick, thank you so much for spending time with us and explaining it. We appreciate it.
