January Jones Addresses Rumors That's She's Dating The Bachelor's Nick Viall
The actress sets the record straight on whether or not she's dating Nick Viall
January Jones is setting the record straight.
While a source told PEOPLE in January that the pair is just friends, the actress is now opening up about the nature of her relationship with Viall.
“He’s a friend of mine. He’s super sweet,” Jones told Entertainment Tonight. “No, I’m single. But, he’s a friend of mine and tells me lots of inside scoops.”
Jones — who liked Viall’s photo on Instagram and left a flirty comment on Jan. 6 with an eye-rolling emoji and a heart — hasn’t shied away from her love of the Bachelor franchise.
“I’ve been grooming myself for it,” she said, revealing she was particularly driven by the idea of dating former Bachelor star Ben Higgins.
But in November 2017, the actress again opened up on Corden’s show about Viall, revealing that he had reached out to her via her team.
“You don’t know if you like him or if he’s a scumbag — and I think that’s why I’m attracted to him, maybe?” said Jones of Viall, who announced his split from fiancée and Bachelor winner Vanessa Grimaldi in August, five months after the season finale aired.
“He asked me to battle him on Lip Sync Battle,” she added. “So is that like, his way of asking me out, or does he have a problem with me? I don’t know what that was. But I declined because I don’t need to be humiliated.”

“I’m dating. That’s about all I’ll say,” said the reality star.
