It looks like William Shatner is on a serious mission to get ‘The Bachelor’ star Nick Viall voted off and sent home from Dancing With The Stars Season 24. In fact, the Hollywood icon and huge star of the hit reality competition show has targeted Nick in a series of new tweets, urging his fans and followers to “knock Bachelor Nick out ASAP” along with the hashtag #Dontvote4Nick.
The 86-year-old actor wrote, “Who is with me? Whoever your favorite is – just not Nick – make the 10 phone calls for them. How do we get #BachelorNation to not vote for Nick? Vote against him. The more everyone votes for everyone else the quicker he’ll be off.”
When one Twitter follower asked William Shatner why he was so against Nick, he responded that “he lives up to the homonym of his last name,” (vile) and referred to Nick’s rather controversial appearance on Andi Dorfman’s season of ‘The Bachelorette” from 2014.
Clearly, William still isn’t over how Nick treated Andi on the show. As many Bachelor fans remember, Nick Viall humiliated Andi Dorfman by telling the world that they slept together in the Fantasy Suite. This was right before fellow contestant Josh Murray proposed to Andi. She ended up dumping Nick for Josh.
But could that be the reason why William is still so disgusted with Nick? Perhaps, but then again should Nick’s Bachelor past be a reason for him to be booted off the show? Nick would hate for that to happen as he’s made it no secret that he’s using ‘Dancing With The Stars’ to extend his fifteen minutes of fame. The last thing he wants is to become a has-been reality television star with no future in Hollywood or the celebrity world, for that matter. Time will only tell how long he’ll last on the show.
Then again, it’s not surprising that William Shatner is campaigning to boot Nick Viall off from ‘Dancing With The Stars.’ After all, he’s still one of the most controversial Bachelors the franchise has ever seen. Tell us, do you think Nick Viall will be booted sooner rather than later from ‘Dancing With The Stars?’
