Nick Viall was the runner-up for Andi Dorfman during her season of The Bachelorette, and he later publicly revealed something damaging about Andi, so it’s not surprising that Josh Murray had some things to saw when Nick popped back up on the show on Monday night’s episode, this time to pursue Kaitlyn Bristowe.
Josh hinted that seeing Nick on TV was going to awkward for him.
He then seemed to poke fun of Nick’s infamy.
Marcus Grodd, who also competed for Andi with Josh and Nick but now is in a relationship with Lacy Faddoul, jokingly called Josh out for his tweet.
Josh also called Kaitlyn out for not paying attention to the other contestants after Nick’s arrival.
As previously reported by the Inquisitr, Andi was much more vocal about her displeasure of seeing Nick go after Kaitlyn. She even posted a tweet that said that Kaitlyn should “RUN.”
After Nick Viall revealed on the After the Rose special that he and Andi Dorfman had sex during their night in the fantasy suite, the night before she chose Josh Murray and got engaged to him him, Josh lashed out at Nick. Josh told RumorFix that what Nick did was “classless and disrespectful.”
“To be honest it was very classless and disrespectful and it just shows the type of person he really is. And I don’t associate myself with those kind of people and neither does Andi, so it’s nice that that’s over with now and he’s of no concern to us or our lives.”
In early January, right after they attended Chris Soules’ The Bachelor premiere event as a couple, Josh and Andi announced that they split via a joint statement to the media.
“After several months of being engaged and working on our relationship, we have decided that it’s best for both of us to go our separate ways. We are very sad that it has come to this point, but this is what’s best for both of us individually. We will continue to be good friends and have nothing but great things to say about each other and wish each other the best.”
In an interview with E! News after the breakup announcement, Nick said that he was “surprised,” that he “feels” for Andi and Josh and that he has “no ill will” towards them. He added that he wouldn’t be pursuing Andi again because he has moved on. As for whether he and Josh would become friends again, Nick was hopeful.
“Maybe down the line it would be nice to reconnect with Josh as a friend.”
While Andi Dorfman and Josh Murray don’t seem to be fans of Nick Viall’s return, Nick believes that he just had to follow his heart. As the episode aired, Nick posted a message that explained why he went on The Bachelorette again for Kaitlyn Bristowe. He added that he has no regrets.
