Thirty women may be vying for Nick Viall’s attention on The Bachelor season 21 but that doesn’t mean things will be easier for the 36-year-old software salesman now that he’s the one handing out the roses. Coming from The Bachelorette where he had to compete with other men for one woman’s heart twice and a summer reality dating spin-off where he ended up being alone again, Viall admits how fortunate he is to be given an opportunity to sort of play the field but, at the same time, he claims that he’s always been a one-woman man.

“I mean, you know, I have no complaints. I suppose it’s better, but at the same time, it’s one of those grass is always greener type of things. I’m a one-woman guy, so dating multiple women is hard,” the new Bachelor star told reporters. “And you know, I certainly felt fortunate for the opportunity but it can be very difficult. It’s certainly something I wasn’t used to, and I don’t know if I’ll ever want to be used to it, but I suppose it was nice to change it up a bit.”

Being a one-woman guy will certainly be hard for Viall, who will be surrounded by plenty of women–some of whom he may have already crossed paths with before. But if Viall had it his way, he’d rather not revisit past relationships. 

“You know, I interestingly enough, you know, when I was asked to be The Bachelor, I felt very lucky to have met a lot of people in my life and a lot of those people were women and the ones I dated, I felt very fortunate to have them in my life,” he said. “But as The Bachelor, I think I just wanted a clean slate. Other people I had met in my life were great, but obviously none of them I felt at that time were someone that I wanted to potentially spend the rest of my life with. And so, I was really looking forward to meeting new women and seeing where that could go.”

As for whether he would consider getting married on TV, Viall plays it safe by saying he would make the decision with the person he’s dating. 

“I mean, if I was lucky enough to find someone and to be engaged, I think decisions like that are ones that I’ll always make with the person I’m dating or with. So that’s hard for me to answer at this point,” Viall said.

The Bachelor premieres January 2 at 8/7c on ABC.
