Why Does William Shatner Hate ‘Bachelor’ Nick Viall, Want Him Off ‘DWTS’?


Actor William Shatner hates Bachelor Nick Viall and wants him voted off of Dancing With The Stars. But why? What did Nick ever do to Bill and what’s up with this new feud?

Well, let’s look at the basics, shall we? There are tons of reports out there that suggest that Nick Viall only agreed to do The Bachelor  (two seasons of The Bachelorette and one season of Bachelor In Paradise) because he wanted to extend his 15 minutes of fame.

Once Nick signed on to do Dancing With The Stars, it seemed clear that he was enjoying his time in the spotlight. Although there have been other Bachelor/ettes to join the popular dancing competition show, Nick’s decision to trade in roses for dance shoes has made William Shatner angry.

Those who have asked Shatner what his problem with Nick is have gotten a very simple response: “Google it.” It seems as though Shatner is just tired of seeing Nick on reality television — who knew that the Star Trek actor even watched?!

William Shatner’s Twitter Campaign Ensues

Shatner has been going hard to try to get folks to vote for “#AnyoneButNick.” He has even started the hashtag trend, “#DontVote4Nick,” and has been tweeting up a storm lately.

Nick Viall and his Dancing With The Stars partner, Peta Murgatroyd have both tweeted to William Shatner about his dedication to getting them sent home. However, Nick didn’t have much to say, so he went with a sad face emoji: Simple and to the point.

After sending William Shatner three “crying” emojis, Peta seemed okay with the response that she received.
