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's
series 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."
