A front-runner from his first one-on-one date with Gabby, Nate won over viewers thanks to his love for his daughter, sweet nature and ability to call out the other men for their misogynistic behavior without sounding self-righteous. Swoon City, population: Bachelor Nation! And when a devastated Gabby sent the single father home because she didn’t feel ready to be a mom yet, it felt like the perfect set-up for his season of The Bachelor.
But, it may have been too good to be true, as Nate had to address allegations during Men Tell All that he kept his daughter a secret from a woman he was dating for a year-and-a-half. Oh, and that he was dating two women at the same time, which he apologized for.
“I’m deeply sorry for the way that I acted,” Nate said. “I should have been more communicative. I should have been more clear in my intentions. I pray that you forgive the man that I was because I’m not that same person.”
A source told E! News that Nate was the frontrunner, but his recent scandal caused production to take a bit of a pause. Still, they noted, he is very much still in the running.
