There’s a very fine line between vanity and narcissism. Vanity is kissing the mirror; narcissism is breaking the mirror because, you know, you’re not the fairest of them all. Mirror, mirror on the wall, whose picture deserves it all? Nick Viall’s, of course! The Bachelorette 2015 suitor (contestant) took to Instagram on Thursday July 3 and shared a snapshot – I use that term loosely – of himself drinking a cup of coffee without a shirt on. Normal as that might seem, Viall also shared the whole “oops, is my zipper down?” modelling thing that non-models do to look like real models.
In another scenario, where Nick Viall is an unknown hot neighbor-guy-person with a Maltese poodle called Gloria, the picture could be viewed as hot in a weird, Carly Simon kind of way. But Nick isn’t a lusty hot neighbor drummed up in Mark Cherry’s script writing office – he is just another contestant on the campest reality television show this side of Mykonos. To add insult to serious egotistical injury, the caption reads: “Just not myself without my morning cup of Joe.”
Okay, Eric Carmen. We get it. You’re an attractive, sensitive guy with a penchant for Kaitlyn Bristowe’s face.
The Bachelorette 2015 and Mr Starbucks caused quite a bit of controversy when they shared “an intimate night together” while on the show. A day after the infamous sexisode aired, Nick tweeted, “Sex is not shameful. Whether we admit it or not, sex is an important part of many serious and meaningful relationships.”
I am unsure whether Nick’s naivety is cute, annoying, hypocritical or all of the above. When did The Bachelorette become a serious and/or meaningful television show? Tweeting about the importance of sex after having unimportant sex on national television makes you an honorary member of Gary Busey & The Stalkerettes.
Mirror, mirror on the wall, whose picture is the fairest of them all? Is he tall? Is he rich? Or is he… Wait, why is this mirror such a bitch?
