‘Bachelorette’ alum Luke Pell is taking nasty shots at Nick Viall! Luke, who lost ‘The Bachelor’ gig to Nick, calls the season 21 hunk ‘narcissistic’ in a new interview and says he would have been a better Bachelor!
“Based on the unsolicited feedback I’ve gotten from people, this season has been terrible,” Luke Pell, 32, told In Touch. “I definitely would have made a better Bachelor. I’m one of the most genuine and honest people.”
Luke has some serious bad blood with Nick Viall, 36. The Bachelorette fan favorite claims he was dropped by Bachelor producers at the last minute. He said he already had his bags packed when the producers decided to go with Nick. Luke doesn’t think Nick, who is now engaged to Vanessa Grimaldi, 29, did the show to find love, only for the fame.
“He could have ended this season and [gone back to a normal life], but instead he chose to do the most narcissistic thing you can do, which is Dancing With the Stars,” he continued. “I think that makes a statement.”
BURN! Sounds like the singer and war veteran is still pretty pissed about not getting The Bachelor gig. But Nick isn’t the first Bachelor to do Dancing With the Stars. Chris Soules, 35, who is a friend of Luke’s, did the show back in season 20.
Despite not being the Bachelor, everything’s worked out pretty well for Luke. He is now dating Nick’s ex, Danielle Lombard, 27. After getting his heart broken by JoJo Fletcher, 26, on The Bachelorette, it’s nice to see Luke happy and opening his heart to love again. But he’s not letting go of his grudge towards Nick any time soon. Let’s hope these two studs will face off one day on Bachelor In Paradise. Now that would be epic.
