What did Lauren Himle say happened? 

Lauren was at 97.1 The Ticket on a promotional tour Wednesday when she talked about what happened with Nick and her friend Jen. Lauren was also on The Bachelor. She said, "I am not a big fan of him, he dated my great friend Jen on “Bachelor in Paradise. So Jen is one of the smartest people I know, she picks up on the bull —-. Her and I are both pretty good at picking up on guy’s game (s). She knew that he was kind of manipulating her towards the end, this just happened, they were solid a week ago.

It’s fresh."

Jen Saviano went on to say that Nick Viall was even looking at engagement rings at one time. From what Lauren says, it sounds like these two were really serious with each other. She feels like Nick will have a hard time finding someone as good as Jen on the show.

What do Nick and Jen have to say? 

At this time, Nick Viall and Jen Saviano are both being quiet about what is going on. Nick did admit that he will be The Bachelor and that things didn't work out with Jen. Fans would love to hear from Jen herself if Nick actually dumped her so he could be on the show.
