About Us

Welcome to The Viall Files, the podcast that talks about relationships. Nick has a lot of dating experience (on TV as The Bachelor and off), so he likes to think he knows what he's talking about. On Mondays, listeners call in for a live version of the popular Instagram series "Questions with Nick." On Wednesdays, Nick sits down with an inspiring guest who challenges the way he looks at the world. We love to laugh, be silly, and get deep! We hope you subscribe and join The Viall Files Family.

All the Scenarios with Ali Manno (Fedotowsky)

Former Bachelorette Ali Manno (Fedotowsky) joins us on today’s episode of The Viall Files as we talk through her experience on The Bachelorette and what really happened when tattoos, songs, and girlfriends tried to derail her love story. Nick and Ali talk about their very different experiences on the show and how the show has evolved as the seasons have gone on through the years; breaking the 4th wall, showing things they would not have in the past, and what that might look like going forward. However, the first topic of conversation between these two leads are the rumors about what is going on with Claire as Nick received some information from someone inside The Bachelor bubble just as he was walking into the studio. Having been in that position themselves, these two have a lot of ideas on how the next season of The Bachelorette could play out. One thing they agree on? They will certainly be watching. “This is my life” Make sure to subscribe so you don’t miss an episode!

Ask Nick - Sexual Free Agent

On today’s episode of Ask Nick we first speak with a frequent dater who is realizing that she is only seeing people that validate her ego instead of her heart. Then, Nick gives some advice to a woman who, because of her religious background, has not had many sexual experiences and is wondering if she is a-sexual or just doesn't know what turns her on…yet. Next, a husband's affair with a family friend has one of our callers trying to figure out her options and if she can continue to be with someone that she doesn’t trust (and recognizing that starting over at 40 might be freeing!) Finally, The Viall Files has its first couple who moved to a new state and in together prior to the pandemic which has since forced their living situation to be the complete opposite of what they had planned.

Ask Nick - Sexual Free Agent

Improvise, Adapt, and Overcome with Paul de Gelder

What if just showing up for work one day changed your life as you knew it? How would you react? Today Nick is joined by author, motivational speaker, and host of Shark Week, Paul de Gelder. As a Royal Australian Navy clearance diver, Paul was in the water working one morning when a bull shark attacked him, resulting in the loss of his right hand and right leg. Nick’s conversation with Paul covers the changes in your mindset when adapting to a new normal, the importance of facing your vulnerability, and the power of choice which can help you decide, “do I want a good life or a shit life?” Dating, overcoming, terminators and sharks; it’s a conversation not to miss.

Breaking Character with Chris Kattan

Nick reconnects this week with his Dancing With The Stars Co-Star and friend Chris Kattan. Chris shares with us how an injury on SNL he kept out of the public eye affected his life for so many years, how his girlfriend is the one who defines all things in their relationship, and of course his time on SNL. It is a different side of Chris you may not be familiar with but you may just love his endearing side even more than his comic persona. “You get to introduce a world that hasn’t been seen through characters.” Be sure to subscribe so you don't miss an episode!

Reality Check with Reality Steve

Nick is joined by "Reality Steve" Carbone today because well … 2020! This conversation is something we never thought would happen but on the The Viall Files we always say that people can learn and grow, and hopefully come out better on the other side. Nick speaks bluntly with Steve, not only about the personal impact he has had on Nick's life but how spoilers have affected other cast members in their off-air real lives and in a very real way. Dropped videos, bad sources, being held accountable, and making some wrongs right are all topics we hit in this episode. So buckle up and make sure to catch some thoughts from Nick at the end of the episode as he reflects on the conversation.
