Nick Viall continues to express his thoughts on cheating after The Bachelorette Season 19 finale. 

At the end of Gabby Windey and Rachel Recchia’s season of The Bachelorette, it was revealed that Tino Franco cheated on Rachel during their engagement. 

Rachel confronted Tino in a filmed segment and in front of a live studio audience on After the Final Rose. 

Tino’s actions led to lots of discussion among viewers. 

Many slammed Tino for his manipulative and unfaithful behavior, while others felt disgusted with the show for humiliating Tino by leaving him on stage during Aven Jones’s surprise appearance. 

Nick has shared his take on the situation, suggesting Tino may have genuine remorse after cheating. 

Nick Viall comments on Tino Franco and thinks ‘there is more to the story’ 

Nick Viall shared one of his TikTok videos on Instagram with his 1.1 million followers. 

In the video, Nick advised those who have been cheated on to stop asking why their significant other cheated on them. 

Nick expressed that the “why” doesn’t matter and stated the “why” is that the unfaithful partner is a cheater. 

After sharing that cheating is a reflection of the cheater’s character, not the one cheated on, Nick suggested that those who ask “why” don’t really want to know why and that it’s their ego asking the question. 

Nick referenced Law & Order to explain the difference between “reason” and “justification” and how any reason a cheater gives you for cheating won’t justify what they did. 

Nick captioned the post, “This is why Rachel hated all of [Tino’s] answers when she was asking why.” 

Commenters reacted to the post, with some disliking that Nick appeared to be speaking for Rachel. 

Others empathized with Tino, as a commenter expressed feeling there was no adultery, and Tino was instantly regretful. 

Nick agreed, writing, “I was more speaking with why they were so at odds at AFR. Yes I agree there is more to the story and Tino seemed genuinely regretful about it.”
