Let’s catch up with Ellen’s muscly gardener as he gears up to star in “The Abbey”

If you know Billy Reilich (aka Nick the Gardener), it’s from The Ellen Show, a show which occasionally features him parading around shirtless and making audiences shriek.

Now, Reilich is set to star in E!’s dubious new reality series, What Happens In The Abbey, which centers on the popular West Hollywood nightclub that employs Reilich as a “VIP server,” whatever that is.

Regardless of your strong feelings about the upcoming show, or Reilich’s occasionally upsetting hairstyles —

Soooo cardio seems to be working..

Take a look at some pics from his Instagram account below: 

School is back, which means the pool is MINE!
