He graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee with a bachelor’s degree in 2004. After graduation, he went on to become an account executive for a company called Salesforce while also modeling on the side. His fame began when he appeared on “The Bachelor” for season 10 and looked to win the heart of Andi Dorfman. While he did make it to the final rose ceremony, Nick’s heart was shattered when Andi picked Josh Murray. Though the star was heartbroken, he appeared the following season and — you guessed it — was once again passed over in the final rose ceremony! While this star has been painfully unlucky in love, he is currently dating Natalie Joy. Today, you can find this reality star behind the camera in new ways, as he has started acting!

He then found himself once again entering back into “The Bachelor Nation” in “Bachelor in Paradise,” where he picked a ring (for the third time) to give to Jen Saviano, but no proposal was made! The star’s last attempt at finding love in “The Bachelor Nation” was when he became the bachelor himself in the 21st season of “The Bachelor.” This, however, was once again unsuccessful, and the star walked away without a wife!
