"The Bachelor" Nick Viall filmed his final rose ceremony back in November but fans won't get watch the finale until March 13. Until then, rumors continue to circulate about Nick's final pick and the status of their relationship, one that Reality Steve states is "not good." To add to the drama, a new report reveals that Nick has been in touch with his former "Bachelor in Paradise" co-star, Amanda Stanton since he returned from filming the finale in Finland.

Fans will recall that Nick made a beeline for Amanda before Josh Murray arrived in "Paradise" last summer.

Amanda admitted that she was interested in Nick and they seemed to hit it off during the date. Although she ultimately got engaged to Josh on the "Bachelor in Paradise" season finale, they split last month, leaving Amanda single and ready to mingle.

Spoilers reveal that Nick Viall got engaged at the final rose ceremony, but the rumored texts to Amanda may indicate that they have already split or are simply staying together until the "After the Final Rose" special airs in March.

Nick reconnects with Amanda

According to Life & Style's sources, Nick started texting Amanda after she broke off her engagement to Josh last month and reached out to say "hello" — perhaps in an effort to rekindle their romance that was halted by Josh on "Bachelor in Paradise" or just to offer his friendship after her breakup.

“He texted Amanda once news broke of her breakup,” Life & Style's source states. “He wanted to reach out and say, ‘Hey,’ but that’s not what a happily engaged guy should be doing!"

This isn't the first time that Nick has contacted single-mom Amanda Stanton off-camera. Last summer, Reality Steve revealed in his blog that Nick contacted Amanda one month before taping for "Paradise" started.

Weeks later, they had their first date on the show while cameras were rolling and all seemed to be going well until Josh Murray joined the cast.

Is Nick's engagement on or off?

After the whole Amanda/Josh/Nick triangle started to make headlines, Amanda took to her blog and told her readers that Nick contacted her before "Paradise" to talk about Jen Saviano, someone he wanted to get to know better on the show.

He eventually dumped Saviano and left the show single, but the recent report about Nick texting Amanda after he handed out his final rose will undoubtedly get fans talking — are they in contact because they are friends, has Nick split from his final pick, or is Life & Style's text story just unconfirmed gossip?

Reality Steve states in a recent blog post that Nick is still engaged to his final pick but he has heard rumors that their relationship is "not good," he is confident that they will show up at the "After the Final Rose" special as a couple.

For now, the Amanda texting story sounds like a bit of gossip, but we'll see how things play out after the "Bachelor" season finale airs on March 13.
