DANCING WITH THE STARS - NICK VIALL - The celebrity cast of

I had no idea that William Shatner has such strong opinions about The Bachelor and Dancing With the Stars, but I cannot stop laughing. William has been adamantly campaigning to get Nick Viall booted from the ballroom in a series of impassioned tweets. I feel like I have finally identified the one person who takes reality TV more seriously than I do.

Sure, I feel bad for Nick, but Shatner’s devotion to both of these shows is just entertainment to me. He went on and on an on and on trying to rally support to vote for every contestant other than Nick.

Dancing with the Stars season 24

ABC announced the Dancing with the Stars season 24 stars this morning on Good Morning America. As expected, Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Erika Girardi will be competing.

Erika‘s been paired with pro dancer Gleb Savchenko, who previously danced with Erika’s co-star Lisa Vanderpump. Let’s hope Erika fares better than Lisa. Lisa and Gleb were the second couple eliminated based on votes and scores in Season 16 (but the third to go home after Dorothy Hamill withdrew).

Who is Erika‘s competition? Well, she has her work cut out for her, as she’s up against gymnast Simone Biles, Fifth Harmony’s Normani Kordei, Glee (um, hello, dancing!) star Heather Morris, and figure skater Nancy Kerrigan. Just to name a few. Check out the full cast list below and let us know if you’ll watch.

Kaitlyn-Bristowe-Nick-Viall-Andi-Dorfman

It seemed all good in the hood when former Bachelorette leads Kaitlyn Bristowe and Andi Dorfman joined their mutual runner-up Nick Viall during an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel to promote Nick’s season of The Bachelor. The thought of this made me feel awkward given Kaitlyn and Nick’s history, but also because of Kaitlyn’s rocky history with the Bachelor franchise. Kaitlyn infamously spoiled her own Bachelorette season when she accidentally posted a photo with her in bed with her winner/fiance Shawn Booth. So I was pretty surprised when she was back in the fold promoting The Bachelor. Well, that was short-lived since Kaitlyn ranted on Twitter about Nick getting the opportunity to be on Dancing With the Stars.

The last lead from the franchise to appear on DWTS was Chris Soules and many people credit the demise of his Bachelor engagement with Whitney Bischoff to being on Dancing With the Stars. And many past Bachelor leads have warned their successors from following in their foot steps since the show is rough for a new relationship. So it wasn’t super surprising when the last three series leads did not go on to the ballroom. Well, apparently there’s more to that.

Ben HIggins and Lauren Bushnell

I have to admit that I am a part of Bachelor Nation. I watch The Bachelor and all of its spin-offs. I’m even contemplating trying out for the next season. Needless to say, I am pretty invested in the franchise. But I have to keep it real and tell you that I could not get into the “Happily Ever After” spin-off show with Ben Higgins and Lauren Bushnell.

Don’t get me wrong I love Ben, but I just can’t see this show getting a second season.

Nick Viall as The Bachelor

The upcoming season of The Bachelor has been super controversial and highly talked about even though filming hasn’t even wrapped up yet. Ever since Nick Viall was chosen for the leading role, Bachelor Nation was super surprised by the decision and curious about what his season will have to offer. You don’t have to wait too much longer, Nick’s Bachelor season has an official premiere date- thank God.

Everyone wants to know what Nick’s season will be like. Even though Nick and host Chris Harrison are both waiting to see how it all ends up for the eternal runner-up, we at least have one thing set in stone and that is the start date for the upcoming season.

Lauri Peterson son Josh Waring arrested, attempted murder

The fans in Bachelor Nation have always been very devoted, but the recent announcement that Nick Viall was chosen as the latest Bachelor has really put the fandom into overdrive. The news broke over a week ago and the Bachelor fans have a lot to say about it. One of those fans is Real Housewives of Orange County alum Lauri Peterson who wants her daughter Ashley Zarlin to join the show and date Nick Viall.

Nick was already on three reality shows in the Bachelor franchise, so why not bring in someone from Bravo? Yes, it’s a super random idea, but it would probably bring some additional viewers to the series. The only real issue that I see is that Real Housewives of Orange County is a Bravo show which is a part of the NBC Universal family and The Bachelor airs on ABC, but that might be irrelevant since Lauri hasn’t been a full time Housewife in years. But anyway, let’s get back to the story here.

Nick Viall as The Bachelor

Am I the only one who feels like the announcement that Nick Viall will be the next The Bachelor is getting more attention than any other Bachelor-related news in a while? It became official last week and people are still talking about it. Chris Harrison continues to insist that Nick is the best choice. However, The Bachelorette cast-offs Chad Johnson and Robby Hayes aren’t feeling it.

They sound a little bitter to me. After all, the trend for this franchise has been to pick the star for the next season from last season’s pool of contestants, which includes both Chad and Robby. Not to mention that Luke Pell has been doing a press tour of complaints after he was rudely shafted from the role at the last minute. With so many differing opinions about Nick, I have a feeling that a lot of people will be watching The Bachelor next season.

Luke-Pell-JoJo-Fletcher-Bachelorette

The fans from Bachelor Nation were collectively shocked when 2-time Bachelorette alum Nick Viall was named as the next star of The Bachelor. Everyone and their grandmothers thought that it was between Luke Pell and Chase McNary from JoJo Fletcher’s Bachelorette season. After all, that’s how the franchise typically works: the star of one season is a cast off from the season before.

So no one ever thought that Nick who was on the show two and three seasons ago was even in the running and when I say “no one” apparently this included Luke as well because he thought that he was chosen to star in the Bachelor and he was all set to film.
