ET's Nancy O'Dell sat down with "Bachelorette" runner-up Nick Viall to discuss his appearance on Monday's dramatic and controversial "After the Final Rose" show, when he shocked viewers by revealing that he and Dorfman were physically intimate with each another during their time together this season.

Viall blushingly told O'Dell that their night was not lacking in chemistry.

"I mean, not in my mind...What I loved about the relationship that we had is...how we both talk about our emotional and mental and physical connection, and...I felt good about it, it was effortless," he shared.

Asked if he was still in love with Dorfman, Viall said that she would "always be in [his] heart."

That said, Viall is ready to move on.

"I think Monday night was a lot of closure for me, that I needed. Not necessarily about the question but her whole demeanor and the process...I was just a little taken back by that," he explained. "And a part of her will always be in my heart. She's a great person but I'm excited and looking forward to moving on."

Dorman ended up choosing Josh Murray over Viall on Monday night's "Bachelorette" finale.
