Spoilers for the "The Bachelor" 2017 continue to pour as the production for the ABC reality dating game show gets underway. An old flame of Season 21 leading man Nick Viall has reportedly joined the show in an attempt to resurrect their short-lived romance.
The Identity of Viall's Ex-Flame
Famous spoiler blogger Reality Steve has been teasing "The Bachelor" nation in the past days that someone from Viall's past joined the show. On Tuesday, the credible spoiler writer finally dropped the name of the former flame who competed for Viall's roses.
Steve revealed that the name of the lady is Elizabeth Sandoz, a 29-year-old Nebraska native who now resides in Las Vegas. She is one of the best friends of "Bachelor in Paradise" alum Jade Roper.
Steve claimed that Sandoz and Viall met at Roper's wedding with fellow "Bachelor in Paradise" star Tanner Tolbert, which was aired early this year. Viall allegedly never called Sandoz again after sleeping together on the night of Roper's wedding.
Although it did not directly mention Sandoz, Us Weekly also published a similar article about a Season 21 contestant who already hooked up with Viall prior to the show. A source told the media outlet that Viall slept with the woman at a wedding and never called her again.
Sandoz Did Not Stay Long
According to Steve, Sandoz will be eliminated early in the upcoming season of "The Bachelor." He said the former flame will bring up to one of the girls that she hooked up with Viall before the show.
Steve added that Sandoz and Viall will get the chance to talk about their short-lived romance during the second group date in Episode 2. However, Viall decided to send her home after the group date.
More Names of Season 21 Contestants
In addition to Sandoz, Steve dropped more names of Season 21 contestants. He revealed that Taylor Nolan, Jasmine Goode and Raven Gates are among the ladies who will vie for Viall's heart.
Nolan is a 23-year-old stunner who graduated from Johns Hopkins University. She is among the ladies who joined Viall on a group date at the Backstreet Boys Concert. Moreover, Goode is a 30-year-old dancer who worked as a cheerleader for the New York Jets and Dallas Cowboys. She is currently a dancer for the Golden State Warriors.
Viall's season of "The Bachelor" will premiere on Jan. 2, 2017.
