Just when you finally thought it was over, somehow Nick Viall has managed to wiggle his way onto another network series. Instead of catching Nick every Monday night at nine chase after the same type of women to eventually get left behind, you can now catch him following the lead of yet another woman on this seasons Dancing With the Stars. Yes, that’s right! Just this past week, Nick Viall performed for his very first time on Dancing With the Stars with his partner Peta Murgatroyd, and let me tell you, not too many people were impressed with his moves!
The 34-year-old reality star (if that’s what you want to call him), who just got engaged to Vanessa during his season of the Bachelor, performed a Cha-cha-cha choreography and scored a sad 24 out of 40. While the judges on the show stated that Nick held potential, they had a lot of criticism for his feet and hand movements. Funny enough, it wasn’t only the judges who felt like Nick did not do an impressive job! The Star Trek actor William Shatner had the furthest thing of words of encouragement for Nick as a contestant on the show. Just after the premier, Shatner Tweeted “My goal for #DWTS is to knock Bachelor Nick out ASAP. Who is with me?”. I guess he’s not the only one who thinks Nick’s day in the spotlight needs to come to an end, permanently.
It would appear that it has become somewhat of a trend to quit your day job, pursue love on national television followed by competing in a dance competition with no experience, because believe it or not, Nick is not the only former Bachelor or Bachelorette to do this! Jake Pavelka, Sean Lowe and Chris Soules have all taken their shot at competing in Dancing With the Stars!
So who’s in with William Shatner and who’s still #TeamNick all the way?
