January Jones was Dax Shepard's guest on his "Armchair Expert" podcast this week, and she opened up about once dating "Bachelor" contestant Nick Viall.

She is apparently a big "Bachelor" fan, and explained that during appearances on The Bachelor during segments on Jimmy Kimmel Live and The Late Late Show With James Corden in 2017, she had some very negative things to say about Viall.


"I got super into it and it was one of Nick's seasons — he did several — and I was just blasting that guy," the Mad Men star said.

"Nick slid into my DMs and he's like, 'I'm so sorry that your perception of me is so negative. I'd love to take you out to coffee and see if I can change your mind.' And I squealed."

Her sister talked her into taking him up on his offer.

"I was like, 'I hate that guy!' My sister's like, 'If you don't go, you will forever regret it,'" Jones said. "So I agreed to go on a date with him, or to drinks or whatever, and as I met him I was rounding the corner and I saw him and he has a very distinct walk, and I had this instinct to, like, run up to him and wrap my legs around his waist, do you know, like they do [on the show]? I stopped myself."

"It was good," she said, summarizing their first date. "All I did was grill him about the show. We went on a couple dates.

"["The Bachelor"] was all we were talking about really," she said. "But I got a lot of juicy inside stuff."

"When they come out of the limo and they have these little shticks or whatever, producers are handing them to them. And then I just felt bad for the people who get, like, the dolphin costume. And here was all kinds of other stuff, but they do share a lot of germs with a lot of people," she said.

Both Jones and Viall denied dating in 2018, saying at the time that they were just friends.
