    Welcome back to The Viall Files, Going Deeper edition! Today we are joined by Host, Podcaster, and Bachelor Nation's own, Wells Adams! On this episode we dive deep with Wells and talk to him about being engaged for years because Covid caused wedding delays, the biggest joys and stresses in planning a wedding, the scoop on the upcoming season of Bachelor in Paradise, and Wells' new cooking show on Hulu about pizza.

We also talk about Frank Ocean selling a c*ckring for $25,000, if body count matters, and Jennifer Coolidge getting a lot of action after her role in American Pie. We then welcome on our Texting Office Callers to help give them advice with formulating a message. Our first caller worries about a guy that seems to have ghosted her, wondering if a potentially awkward situation while hooking up may have led  him to lose interest. Now she wonders if him being judgmental may be a red flag. Our next caller wonders if she should try to repair the relationship with her boyfriend's brother after the brother sends our caller an apology two years after a fight. Seemingly like he's done work to improve himself, she wonders if it's worth having the conversations to restore the relationship and how she can get more support from her boyfriend in this situation.  “He gives hope to a lot of skinny funny guys!”  Please make sure to subscribe so you don't miss an episode and as always send in your relationship questions to asknick@kastmedia.com to be a part of our Monday episodes.  If you would like to get some advice on Office Hours send an email to asknick@kastmedia.com with “Office Hours” in the subject line!  Be sure to check out my sports radio show Fandemonium, Wednesdays @ 3PT / 6 ET  on Amazon's Amp app.  Click the link to download Amp using my code NICKVIALL https://apps.apple.com/us/app/amp-host-live-radio-shows/id1586403838 Pre-Order Nick's Book: https://www.abramsbooks.com/product/dont-text-your-ex-happy-birthday_9781419755491/ Check out our new "Introvert" merch at http://www.viallfiles.com today!

    Welcome back to The Viall Files: Bachelorette Recap Edition! Today we are back with another episode, joined by actor, writer, host, and Bachelor superfan, Dave Holmes! On this episode we kick things off by digging into some tea from Bachelor Nation. We react to Michelle Young saying she's happier since the breakup in her last Instagram post, the Madison Prewett proposal where she was told it would happen 30 minutes before, a recent interview where in reaction to the new Bachelorette format Gabby said that she wouldn't let anyone pit her against Rachel, and updates on Aaron Rodgers and his family. We then get into reacting to the episode itself, picking up from last week's cliffhanger of Logan, how Logan has proved he's on the show for the right reasons, and how Nate seems like the right choice for the next Bachelor. We also talk about how Rachel has had a rough episode with canceling the group date, how she's making the same mistakes that Clayton made, and how the two Bachelorettes handle rejection and disappointment differently. We also talk about the guys that are setting themselves up for heartbreak, who is the most divisive contestant, and how they're going to handle hometowns.  “She's making the same mistakes Clayton did.” Please make sure to subscribe so you don't miss an episode and as always send in your relationship questions to asknick@kastmedia.com to be a part of our Monday episodes.  Pre-Order Nick's Book: https://www.abramsbooks.com/product/dont-text-your-ex-happy-birthday_9781419755491/ Check out our new "Introvert" merch at http://www.viallfiles.com today!

On this episode we dive deep with our guest talking about what it's like to be on one show for almost a decade, how the LA karaoke scene is like nothing else, and how relationships that ended poorly aren't a waste of time. We then talk about how Hayley and her fiancé bonded over dating sociopaths, how forcing yourself to deal with heartbreak is better than ignoring it, and continuing to learn about the person you're dating even after the honeymoon phase ends. We also cover the Emily Ratajkowski cheating scandal and dive in to present the narrative of why people cheat and why the person cheated on should never feel at fault. We also talk about the Rejection Challenge, why exposing yourself to “no” can make you a more dynamic person, and the controversy with Drake airdropping a picture he took of a woman to her. We then welcome on two Texting Office Hours callers! Our first caller wonders what to do after being ghosted after an amazing first date. She asks how to cut through the noise and learn that this “perfect guy” may actually be a f*ckboy hiding in plain sight.

On this episode we welcome on Jeff to dive into his experience on the show, get the tea on who he left the show with, and how the producers dug up people from his past. We also talk about if it's worth it to explore missed connections, the contestants Jeff loved and hated the most on the show, and doing body shots for a dollar at brunch.

Knowing that they've hit it off in the past, she learns to be direct and learn that it's better to ask for what you want rather than chase. Our next caller wonders what to do when someone she's been hooking up with begins to ask very strange personal questions regarding her and the future.

    Welcome back to The Viall Files: Bachelorette Recap Edition! Today we are back with another episode, joined by Blake Moynes of Bachelor Nation! In this episode we start things off by diving into some hot questions and check-in on Blake to see how he is dealing with his breakup of Katie, how long it took him to recover, and what he's focused on now. We ask if there was emotional cheating in his relationship and then ask him about his time on the Bachelor and his interactions with Greg on Season 17 of The Bachelorette. We ask how valid it was that Katie said she knew that Greg was not the one and we solve the mystery behind Blake's censored painting. We then respond to our episode last week and talk about our approach to responding to drama and how our response to Katie differs from the situation where Blake Horstmann leaked texts. After some Bachelor Nation Tea, we dive into recapping the latest episode of The Bachelorette. On the latest episode, we find that there were a lot of upset eliminations, with Jordan the drag racer being sent home despite going on a one on one date, and how the first impression rose doesn't necessarily mean that you're safe. With two Bachelorettes, are the dynamics different and are previous signs of going far in the season now signs you'll be sent home next? We also talk about if the guys should be focusing on one bachelorette or should they get to know a bit about both, if nicknames are a sign you're not being taken seriously, and if there will be jealousy between both of the Bachelorettes.  “Man earned that f*ckboy edit!” Please make sure to subscribe so you don't miss an episode and as always send in your relationship questions to asknick@kastmedia.com to be a part of our Monday episodes.  Pre-Order Nick's Book: https://www.abramsbooks.com/product/dont-text-your-ex-happy-birthday_9781419755491/ Check out our new "Introvert" merch at http://www.viallfiles.com today!

    Welcome back to The Viall Files, Going Deeper edition! Today we are switching up our typical Going Deeper format to welcome some Mediation Callers! We bring on friends and couples to help them hash out their disagreements and see what we can do to help them find some common ground. Our first callers are looking for advice on how to deal with the boyfriend going out and drinking while the girlfriend stays home and worries. He finds going out to be the perfect outlet and doesn't mean to worry his partner, but he finds himself struggling to stay disciplined with communication and promises. Our next callers wrote in about one of them wanting a dog and the other not yet being sure. As they just moved in together, literally 24 hours ago, they wonder if their lives are too busy to get a dog. And with them potentially moving to another state in the future, are there too many roadblocks to commit to a pup? Should they just get a dog and figure it out or wait a beat and make sure they are truly ready? Our last callers were best friends but had a falling out a few years ago. They get back together in the same room for the first time to try to figure out how to mend this relationship right on The Viall Files. They ask how to best get past their issues and move on from the things that occurred and put strain on the friendship. Can they restore their relationship back to what it was before? Or because of the falling out, can they never be as close again.  “It's okay to have a different kind of friendship.”  Please make sure to subscribe so you don't miss an episode and as always send in your relationship questions to asknick@kastmedia.com to be a part of our Monday episodes.  If you would like to get some advice on Office Hours send an email to asknick@kastmedia.com with “Office Hours” in the subject line!  Be sure to check out my sports radio show Fandemonium, Wednesdays @ 3PT / 6 ET  on Amazon's Amp app.  Click the link to download Amp using my code NICKVIALL https://apps.apple.com/us/app/amp-host-live-radio-shows/id1586403838 Pre-Order Nick's Book: https://www.abramsbooks.com/product/dont-text-your-ex-happy-birthday_9781419755491/ Check out our new "Introvert" merch at http://www.viallfiles.com today!

On this episode we dive deep into the shocking reunion of Selling Sunset, where we react to the tears (real and fake), talking about how public breakups don't always need a public explanation, and when is it too soon to call someone the love of your life. We also get back into some Bachelor Drama and react to Tayshia's reaction to a social media comment, and talk about the pros and cons of reading what people have to say about you online. We then bring on two callers to our Office Hours segment! Our first caller struggles after a drunken hookup. Despite ending well, our caller wonders what to do after being left on read after sending a very direct and honest text. Our next caller wonders how to deal with a boy with very convenient excuses for being unavailable for dates. Now she's stuck debating if windsurfing is a viable excuse and maybe if her being too direct may have given this guy the ick.  “The disrespect he gave is the closure.” Please make sure to subscribe so you don't miss an episode and as always send in your relationship questions to asknick@kastmedia.com to be a part of our Monday episodes.  If you would like to get some advice on Office Hours send an email to asknick@kastmedia.com with “ Office Hours” in the subject line!  Pre-Order Nick's Book: https://www.abramsbooks.com/product/dont-text-your-ex-happy-birthday_9781419755491/ Check out our new "Introvert" merch at http://www.viallfiles.com today!

    Welcome back to The Viall Files: Bachelor Gossip Edition! Today we are joined by Natalie Joy to help us dive deep and tackle the latest on the Amber Heard and Johnny Depp trial, bringing on psychologist, Dr. Kirk Honda, as well as body language expert, Janine Driver. After recapping the emotional testimonies, the inconsistencies in the narratives, and the allegations of using drugs in the courtroom and posing for photos, we bring in the experts to answer all of your burning questions. We first bring on Dr. Kirk to get his reactions to what's happening in this case, how two doctors could land on different diagnoses, and what people should do when stuck in traumatic situations without access to therapy. After that we bring on Janine Driver who is a body language expert with a focus. She dives into how being theatrical can be part of your baseline, how the structure of a story can tell if you're lying or not, and the massive amount of damage to your credibility that happens when you decide to fake cry. We then recap the information that we've learned and talk about why people want to side with Amber, and how people should believe women, regardless of how this specific case ends.  “Typically truthful people convey information, liars try to convince us.” Please make sure to subscribe so you don't miss an episode and as always send in your relationship questions to asknick@kastmedia.com to be a part of our Monday episodes.  Pre-Order Nick's Book: https://www.abramsbooks.com/product/dont-text-your-ex-happy-birthday_9781419755491/ Check out our new "Introvert" merch at http://www.viallfiles.com today!
