NIck Viall might’ve signed on to be The Bachelor this season to repair his image, but so far he’s not doing a very good job!
Former Bachelorette villain Chad Johnson — who previously stirred up controversy during JoJo Fletcher‘s quest for love and on Bachelor in Paradise — spoke out about the 36-year-old handing out the roses this season, and he didn’t have very nice things to say.
“Every year is getting faker and faker. It’s become more about the entertaining stuff that goes on in the house than the relationships,” he told In Touch.
But this isn’t the first time “Bad Chad” has dissed the reality star veteran. He previously questioned his motives for agreeing to do the show in the first place and told In Touch before the season started airing, “He knows what Bachelor Nation wants, so I think his season will be the most inoffensive, uneventful ever.”
To make matters worse, even Nick’s pal, Abby Draper, admitted that he’s not on the show for the right reasons! “He’s here for another stint on television,” she said.
This doesn’t exactly come as much of a surprise. A source previously told In Touch that since this is his fourth televised attempt to find love, Nick’s been acting like a movie star in front of the contestants this season — and they’re not digging it!
“He refuses to film unless [his hair] is absolutely perfect,” the source said, adding that several of the girls this season have questioned if they should leave. “They find him to be completely arrogant and a total diva.”
