Feb. 1 (UPI) -- First-ever Bachelorette Trista Sutter and her husband Ryan Sutter have offered some advice to current Bachelor Nick Viall about contestant Corinne.
"He was a standup, you know, a gentleman," Ryan stated about his first impression of Viall alongside his wife as the couple gave an update on their marriage Tuesday on Good Morning America.
"He's a gentleman in progress," he said, changing his answer.
The couple who admitted to still being fans of the show, believe Viall needs to let go of Corinne in order for him to start taking things more seriously.
"Eventually it has to get, like, serious if he wants it to get serious," Ryan explained. "And she's gotta go, because she's just a distraction."
Trista had given her final rose to Ryan on The Bachelorette in 2003 and have remained married following a televised ceremony that same year.
"Simon Cowell sat on a couch with me, and he's like, 'I give it two weeks,'" Trista shared about how many believe they wouldn't make it.
Now with two children, 9-year-old Maxwell and 7-year-old Blakesly, the former Bachelorette explained how their marriage continues to thrive.
"I think forgiveness is a big one because no one's perfect," she said. "Neither of us are perfect."
