Kristina Schulman entered Bachelor Nation by being a contestant on Nick Viall’s season of The Bachelor. She is now trying to find love on Bachelor in Paradise.

She recently had something to say about Viall on the show and it wasn’t positive. Now he is calling her out and claiming she messaged his brother before his season. Find out what he said and more.

Schulman was on Viall’s season of The Bachelor. She opened up to him about being a foster child in Russia before moving to the United States.

I felt so strongly for Kristina,” Viall wrote on his blog, according to People. “She melted my heart in so many ways, but I just knew deep down I had stronger connections with the other women.”

He added the reason why he decided to send her home when he did. “I couldn’t stand the idea of taking Kristina further only for it not to work out,” he wrote. “As hard as it would be to say goodbye to her now, it would have been 100 times harder for both of us if I took a leap and then said goodbye in another week.”

She is now trying to find love on Bachelor in Paradise. She started the season by calling out Blake Horstmann for sleeping with Caelynn Miller-Keyes the night after they were together. Schulman weirdly picked Horstmann for her date to confront him and they continue to be friends after that.

A recent episode showed her meeting Luke Stone. Schulman compared Stone to Viall. She claimed, he is “nicer, cuter and easier to talk to” than Viall. Now the star has something to say about her comments.

The former reality star is now responding to Schulman’s comments. He said there was a reason why they didn’t connect.

“I’m not surprised Kristina had that to say. In fairness to Kristina, I probably wasn’t easy to talk to on my season with Kristina since she decided to tell me that she slid into my brother, Sam’s DM before our season of The Bachelor,” he said on his podcast, Viall Files according to Us Weekly.

He continued, “I don’t know what her intentions were, but she was just like, ‘Yeah, I slid into your brother’s DM and I was talking to him a little bit.’ And I was like, ‘That’s super weird.’”

Viall then said, “I had sensed prior to that that she was a diehard Bachelor fan, so it was quite honestly kind of awkward. … If you tell me you hit on my brother on a date, I probably won’t be the most conversional.”

It looks like there was more to why things didn’t work out between them. Schulman has yet to address Viall’s claim.
