January Jones Confirms She Briefly Dated The Bachelor's Nick Viall

January Jones is opening up on the rumors that she dated former The Bachelor star Nick Viall!

The 42-year-old Mad Men actress confirmed on Dax Shepard‘s Armchair Expert podcast that she indeed went on some dates with Nick after he “slid into my DMs.”

At the time, January, who is a big fan of the show, was blasting Nick while appearing on talk shows. “Nick slid into my DMs, and he’s like, ‘I’m so sorry that your perception of me is so negative, I’d love to take you out to coffee and see if I could change your mind,’” she said. “And I squealed.”

“I was like, ‘I hate that guy!’ but my sister was like, ‘If you don’t go you will forever regret it,’” January said. “So I agreed to go on a date with him — or to drinks, or whatever. As I met him I was rounding the corner and I saw him, and he has a very distinct walk, and I had this instinct to run up to him and wrap my legs around his waist, you know like they do? [But] I stopped myself.”

January says the date was “good,” but all she did “was grill him about the show.” She then added that they went on “a couple of dates,” but then cut herself off from saying more.

“The thing that attracted me to Nick was that he seemed — I mean, he was cast as the quote-unquote villain, but he had a bit of a brain, so there was something else there,” January said. “That’s all we were talking about, really. But I got a lot of juicy inside stuff.”

While January told Dax that Nick asked her to be on his podcast and she declined, she ended up agreeing as the episode was released last week!
