'Bachelor' Nick Viall Records Flirty Message for Amy Schumer, Says His 'One Regret' Is Not Meeting Her

By
Amy Schumer is a self-proclaimed fan of Bachelor nation, but was surprised to learn that The Bachelor star Nick Viall is also an admirer of hers.
While on Monday's Good Morning America, the 35-year-old comedian played a recorded message from Viall where he revealed that his "one regret" was not meeting Schumer when he was a contestant on Kaitlyn Bristowe's season of The Bachelorette. The Trainwreck star taught the contestants stand-up comedy during a group date, but Viall showed up later on the show and missed that outing.
"You and I might have had a chance to meet. Who knows what could have happened?" Viall told Schumer. "Unfortunately, it just wasn't meant to be."
Making light of the 36-year-old reality star competing on two seasons of The Bachelorette before becoming the Bachelor, Schumer -- who has been dating boyfriend Ben Hanisch for over a year -- quipped, "Well, in two seasons, when I'm the Bachelorette and he's a contestant..."
In an interview with ET in July 2015, Schumer joked about how bad she would be as the Bachelorette. "I would tear through those guys in one sitting," she joked. "The show would be over in one episode."
As for Viall, he's actually moving on to compete on another reality competition series, Dancing With the Stars, and told ET that he's "thankful" to have The Bachelor behind him. "Chris [Soules] and Ben [Higgins] and some other people who had been leads who I talked to in the past certainly prepared me," he said of bracing himself for the show'sseries finale, which airs March 13 on ABC. "I don’t think anyone can fully appreciate the challenges that come with it until they're a part of it…until you live it and until you experience it and until you feel it, it's something quite different."
