Nick Viall and Natalie Joy came to paradise for their long-awaited honeymoon that eventually turned out to be quite an adventure with a turn of unplanned events. The newlyweds were in high spirits but had to face many challenges one by one, which tested their resilience.

The drama had begun even before they arrived at their destination, the Turks and Caicos Islands. In the latest episode of the "Viall Files" podcast, Viall recounted what seems like a small but revealing screw-up involving a cowboy hat with the name of their daughter, River Rose, that he left on top of their vehicle.

He then recognized another mistake—his wallet was in his sister-in-law's car. Despite these very small glitches, both felt relieved thinking that they finally have their passports and they can proceed to catch their flight.

Everything was going on just fine, until they reached the Turks and Caicos airport.Customs officials flagged Joy's passport due to a torn page, throwing their plans into further disarray.

Passport Problems Escalate

Joy explained the emotional rollercoaster they endured: "We had just had the best two days ever, and then we got there, and it was like, 'I didn't check mine.'

Both her mother and daughter had their passports expedited for the trip, but Joy had overlooked her own. The situation escalated when the authorities informed them they could not enter the country. "I'm still optimistic because they're like, 'We're not supposed to let you in.'

I'm hearing 'supposed to,' not 'can't,'" Viall recounted. Unfortunately, their optimism was short-lived as they were ultimately told, "Sorry. We're sending you back." The couple's difficulties didn't end there. After securing a refund from their resort, they faced further travel disruptions.

Their return flight was delayed by six hours and was eventually canceled due to a maintenance issue. Viall described the experience as a moment that put everything into perspective, emphasizing the importance of family and resilience in the face of adversity.

In an unexpected twist, their situation took a turn for the better when a Delta Airlines crew member assisted them in booking a hotel room for the night at a quaint, antique hotel named the Palms. "They're gonna make an exception.

They're gonna let you in for a night," the crew member assured them. The couple managed to enjoy a brief respite, with Joy donning one of her honeymoon outfits for a family dinner. "It's just a bad day. That's it. Like, nothing's really changed...

We had dinner as a family and it was a nice dinner," Viall reflected. Their journey took another dramatic turn when they learned the next morning that the airport had been evacuated shortly after their departure the previous night due to a bomb threat.

Viall expressed relief that the situation hadn't escalated further, acknowledging that "it could've been so much worse."
