Wow. Are pickings really THAT slim, girl?
January Jones is an Emmy- and Golden Globe-nominated actress for "Mad Men," currently starring in the comedy "The Last Man on Earth." She previously dated Ashton Kutcher and Josh Groban. But now she's supposedly with ... Nick Viall.
Nick Viall is a reality TV show staple, appearing on four shows in "The Bachelor" franchise and then competing on "Dancing With the Stars." He was runner-up of "The Bachelorette" twice, appeared on the summer spinoff "Bachelor in Paradise," and then became "The Bachelor" last year. He and his Chosen One never looked like they'd last, and they didn't -- ending their engagement this past August.
But now, according to a new report from Page Six, January Jones and Nick Viall are dating. They have supposedly been dating for a couple of months. Here's what a source told the outlet:
"She went on 'The Late Show' in mid-November and said Nick had reached out to her and tried to get her to lip-sync battle with him. She declined, but then he asked her out to a drink and she accepted. They've been seeing each other since."
UPDATE: A post from People later semi-contradicted Page Six's dating news. Their own unnamed source said Viall and Jones weren't dating, they were just friends. (Point to ponder: What constitutes "dating" these days?) ET's own unnamed source said of Jones and Viall, "They've been spending time together, but things are super casual." Viall didn't deny being on the market -- not that he should. He recently told People, "I'm dating. That's about all I'll say."
According to Page Six, Viall was with Jones when the single mom celebrated her 40th birthday this past weekend. Normally we'd question this kind of "unnamed source" dating report, but it's true that Jones was on "The Late Late Show" in November. And she did talk to James Corden about her love for "The Bachelor," and Nick's lip-sync battle request. So apparently he's just a damn good hustler (his confidence always attracted "Bachelor/ette" ladies, at least for a time) 'cause he reached out to her again and that bold initiative paid off.Fans were surprised by the news, to say the least:

"How does this guy keep getting girls?" Austin asked aloud on Twitter while eating store brand Oreos in his apartment. https://t.co/pFx3QLkMNb— Austin Huff (@AustinHuff) January 16, 2018
My biggest question is how you can be a "superfan" of the show and still date Nick? https://t.co/vjYJnYHnYD— natalia (@natalia5727) January 16, 2018

How do you go from Josh Groban to Nick Viall? Not that Nick is the first Bachelor bro to end up dating a famous fan. "Modern Family" star Sarah Hyland is dating "The Bachelorette" alum Wells Adams. And way back when, Jennifer Love Hewitt went on a date with Ben Flajnik, before he became "The Bachelor."
Is this where Arie is headed after his run? Let's hope not, for the sake of his current fiancée.
