Jealous, much? Luke Pell is SLAMMING Nick Viall after losing the ‘Bachelor’ gig to him, joking that he may need a ‘fifth season’ to find love since he’s come up short THREE times now on different installments of the franchise. Check out his epic diss, right here.
Fourth time’s the charm? That’s what Nick Viall, 35, is hoping for now that he’s been crowned the new Bachelor! But there’s someone eager to rain on his parade — Luke Pell, 31, who claims Nick STOLE the opportunity away from him, according to a new report by Us Weekly. Luke wasn’t afraid to throw Nick’s love life under the bus, noting that he’s failed to find love in THREE separate seasons of the Bachelor franchise — twice on Bachelorette and once on Bachelor In Paradise. “If he doesn’t work out for a fourth season, I’m sure he’d be up for a fifth season,” quipped Luke to the magazine.
On The Bachelorette, and its spinoff Bachelor In Paradise, Nick was let down time and time again as he searched for love. The hunk first appeared on The Bachelorette season 10, where he romanced Andi Dorfman, but ultimately lost his happy ending to Josh Murray. For round two, Nick signed up for The Bachelorette season 11, where he fell in love with Kaitlyn Bristowe — but we all know how that ended! She picked Shawn Booth, and they’ve been living happily ever after ever since. THEN, for his THIRD attempt, Nick joined Bachelor In Paradise season 3, where he immediately bonded with Amanda Stanton — until Josh came along (again!). Ouch, what a series of heartache!
Now, as Nick is gearing up for his fourth shot at finding “the one,” ABC’s producers are weighing in on why they think he’s been so unlucky in love. “I think part of his charm that’s really come out on Bachelor in Paradise is he’s so great with the girls, and not as a romantic interest to all of them, but almost as a big brother or good male friend,” tells executive Robert Mills in a SiriusXM interview. Maybe it’s time to turn up the romance, Nick!
