Nick Viall is trading reality TV for scripted content.

The Bachelor alum, who starred on season 21 of the ABC love-centric reality series, will appear in Wednesday’s upcoming episode of Speechless, and PEOPLE has the exclusive sneak peek!

In the hilarious snippet, Viall, 37, plays Tyson, JJ DiMeo’s (Micah Fowler) new friend. JJ convinces his parents, Maya (Minnie Driver) and Jimmy (John Ross Bowie), to take him on a college visit, but hides his ulterior motive during the trip. When JJ’s plan unravels, he is forced to enlist Tyson to keep him out of hot water.

“JJ, I hear you’re looking at joining our engineering department,” Viall’s Tyson says after he’s introduced as the college dean to the family. “Son, you seem likeDanton [University] material through and through.”

“You’re the dean?” Driver’s surprised Maya asks. “You’re very young.”

Jimmy adds with the wave of a hand over Tyson’s tall and fit physique, “Hot.”

“I get that a lot,” Tyson says with a laugh. “Working with quality young people like JJ here is my own fountain of youth.”

After JJ and Tyson are quickly ushered away to “solve” a “math equation,” Maya whispers to Jimmy, “We can’t quit, because it’s his dream, isn’t it! Go on, open that app again.”
