Though fans of “Bachelor In Paradise” know that Nick Viall and Jen Saviano ultimately do not end up together, there is still the question of why. And while the public is relatively thrilled that Viall will be next on “The Bachelor” roster, the road that lead to that is still a little hazy.

In an interview with Glamour Magazine, which took place just as the cast was filming the finale episodes, Viall opened up about what his relationship with Saviano was like.

When prodded why Viall kept subjecting himself to “Bachelor” shows -- he took part in both of Andi Dorfman and Kaitlyn Bristowe’s seasons of “The Bachelorette” -- he explained that he had no regrets at all. “Bachelor nation has not always been kind, but I’ve never wanted to have past experiences dictate or have a negative effect on how I make future choices,” he said. “I figured worst case scenario, I’d get to see some old friends and hopefully make some new ones. And if I was really lucky, I’d meet a girl.”

Viewers of “Bachelor In Paradise” know that Viall did meet a girl on the island. And while he admitted not knowing much about Saviano before she arrived, he also shared that she did at a very opportune time. “At that point I was like, ‘What the hell am I doing here?’” he recalled. “And then Jen shows up, and we instantly hit it off.”

Viall also admitted that Saviano was different from Dorfman and Bristowe. And while, during the interview, he was contemplating extending the relationship between “Bachelor In Paradise,” he also shared that he had some “soul-searching to do." The 35-year-old also said there was definite potential with Saviano, but that he didn’t know how he would approach the finale.

The big surprise in the last episode of “After Paradise,” revealed that Viall would be next on “The Bachelor,” thereby killing any hope that he would end up with Saviano.

This time around, E! News notes that Viall will be looking for a confident woman, who knows exactly how much she is worth. "Someone who knows their self-worth. Someone who can call him out if he needs it," a childhood friend of Viall described. "He's tough, he can take criticism. I just don't think he wants someone passive."

“Bachelor In Paradise” and “After Paradise” air on ABC every Monday and Tuesday at 8 p.m.
