Nick Viall -- 'Bachelorette' ... Female Photog Edition

EXCLUSIVE

'Bachelorette' runner-up Nick Viall's flirt game is still strong ... based on his run-in with a TMZ photog at LAX, anyway. 

We got Nick at baggage claim when he happened to run into a pair of our photogs -- Jake and Brittany ... who happens to be a huge 'Bachelor/Bachelorette' fan.

Check it out, she fires off a bunch of questions -- including how he thinks Kylie Jenner would do on the show -- but Nick seems preoccupied with something ... or someone.

He's definitely paying close attention to EVERY word from our photog's mouth.
