Now that Nick Jonas and Olivia Culpo are officially over, is he ready to rekindle his romance with Selena Gomez? The "Chains" singer answered that very question in an in-studio interview with Capital FM's Max Akhtar in London Tuesday.

Akhtar named two possible "contenders" for Jonas' heart, the first being Gomez. "Obviously, you've been there before. And you did say on this show she's a great kisser," the radio host said, to which Jonas admitted, "Yeah." Akhtar said Gomez is "a sweetheart. I love her." Best of all, she reminded him, "She's a single pringle."

"What's the other option?" Jonas asked.

Akhtar said, "You've also been spotted out with her. People jump to conclusions."

Jonas explained their accidental outing. "We kind of ran into each other a couple of weeks ago, like walking in Venice. We were both with separate groups of friends and we ran into each other," he said. "I put a dinner together with a bunch of really great people, like the Haim girls, who I love. They're awesome. They're the best. It was a big group of people and we all had a great time. We connect in that sense."

"It was nice to connect and just catch up," he added. "I'll leave it there!"

Akhtar's second option was one of Jonas' collaborators, Tinashe.

"Her abs are probably as great as your abs," Akhtar told the famously in-shape pop star. The radio host also recalled that Tinashe once admitted Jonas is sexy, but he was dating Culpo at the time. "She's like, 'He's hot, but I would never even go there because he has a girlfriend, so you have to be respectful."

"She's dope," Jonas said. "She's kinda like the homie. Does that make sense?"

"No, because that sounds like the side chick," Akhtar said. "I don't like it. 'The homie.'" Jonas tried to explain himself, saying, "No, no. The homie. I don't know. Because we worked together and we're just friends, it feels like it's that. I wouldn't want to mess that up! I would want to be friends with her, I think."

Once again, Akhtar asked Jonas about the possibility of reuniting with Gomez.

"There's also lots of other options," Jonas said.

Later in the interview, during a game of radio roulette, Akhtar challenged the pop singer to cover new hits, like Fetty Wap's "Trap Queen" and Taylor Swift's "Bad Blood" remix with Kendrick Lamar, plus an old hit: Sisqo's "The Thong Song."
