From their first date to their wedding, Jade and Tanner Tolbert‘s entire love story unfolded on reality television – so it’s safe to say they know a thing or two about finding love on the small screen.

The beloved Bachelor in Paradise couple recently opened up to PEOPLE Now about how they’re feeling about Nick Viall‘s upcoming season of The Bachelor.

“I’m really excited to watch this one,” confessed Tanner, 29, who previously vied for Kaitlyn Bristowe‘s rose alongside Viall, 35, on her season of The Bachelorette in 2015.

“I’m close with [former Bachelor] Ben [Higgins], but I’m probably more excited to watch Nick just because I think it will be very entertaining,” he added. “Nick tells is like it is and he’s very candid, so I’m excited to see what unfolds with all the women.”

“I think he’s going to be a really strong lead, so it’s going to be good,” added Jade, 29.

As for what advice they have for Viall?

“Nick, don’t have sex with anyone until the Fantasy Suite this time,” quipped Tanner, referencing Viall and Bristowe’s much-talked about decision to sleep together before the Fantasy Suite dates on her season.

And when it comes to the women hoping to win Viall’s heart, they should be fearless.

“Nick always talks about how he wants somebody who’s very confident and very sure of themselves and will challenge him,” explained Jade. “So, girls: Don’t be afraid to stand up for yourselves and be yourself in front of him, because he’s looking for that. We really want Nick to find love this time!”

“He’ll see through the BS,” chimed in Tanner. “So just be real and have fun.”
