William Shatner really doesn’t like Nick Viall.
“Dancing With The Stars” super fan, William Shatner, is not crazy about “The Bachelor” Nick Viall competing in Season 24. In fact, the former “Star Trek” actor spent much of Monday night encouraging “DWTS” fans not to vote for Viall and his partner, Peta Murgatroyd.
William Shatner took to Twitter to write a series of tweets about how fans should not vote for Nick Viall during his “Dancing With The Stars” run. “My goal for #DWTS is to knock Bachelor Nick out ASAP. Who is with me?” Shatner tweeted, along with many other messages in hopes of getting Viall booted off the reality dancing show quickly.
Nick Viall, who ended his run on “The Bachelor” last week after picking Vanessa Grimaldi in the dramatic season finale, seems to be a sore spot for William Shatner, who obviously is a fan of “Dancing With The Stars” and “The Bachelor.” Shatner seemed to imply that Nick was fame hungry, saying, “Leopards don’t change their spots. Don’t be surprised if he shows up again on paradise. I won’t be.”
Nick Viall and Peta Murgatroyd respond to William Shatner’s ‘DWTS’ diss
Nick Viall and Peta Murgatroyd only responded to William Shatner’s tweets with sad face emoji’s, but William was quick to reveal that he had nothing against Peta. “Peta, you know I love you. Congratulations on becoming a mommy. Just can’t cheer you on this season. Love to Maks & Shia,” Shatner tweeted to the “Dancing With The Stars” pro.
While Nick Viall didn’t score strongly during the “Dancing With The Stars” premiere, he wasn’t at the bottom of the leader board. That space was reserved for Chris Kattan, who scored the lowest out of all the celeb dancers. It seems Nick may be safe going into next week, but the competition is tough this season, so Shatner may get his wish after all.
