The worlds of The Bachelor and Dancing with the Stars collided on Tuesday night. Becca Tilley, from season 19 of The Bachelor starring Chris Soules, and Shawn Booth and Nick Viall, from season 11 of The Bachelorette starring Kaitlyn Bristowe, hung out together at 102.7 KISS FM’s Pick Your Purse Party. Joining them on the red carpet at the Four Seasons Hotel in Beverly Hills were Dancing with the Stars pro dancers Emma Slater and Lindsay Arnold.
Nick, who also appeared on season 10 of The Bachelorette in pursuit of Andi Dorfman, posted a photo of the group to his Twitter account. Nick admitted that he got his eyebrows threaded by one of the sponsoring companies at the party.
Nick and Shawn didn’t just go to the party to get their eyebrows styled. On Instagram, Nick’s caption for the same photo reveals that he and Shawn went to the Ryan Seacrest event in order to raise more awareness for their Movember campaign. Nick and Shawn have teamed up together to raise money for prostate cancer and other diseases affecting men.
Earlier that day, Nick Viall and Shawn Booth stopped by the Movember Foundation office in Culver City. Nick reminded their fans to continue sending donations to the cause.
They also stopped by the TV station KTLA to film a short segment to promote the Movember cause. During the segment, Shawn said that his relationship with fiancee Kaitlyn Bristowe has gotten even better since filming for The Bachelorette ended. As for when they’ll get married, Shawn said that they have not set a date yet because they have been so busy traveling.
Where was Kaitlyn? She was at her hometown of Vancouver to attend another event. She tweeted that it was the first time that she and Shawn have spent the night apart since they publicly came out as a couple.
In late October, Shawn issued a challenge to Nick. Shawn asked Nick to join his Movember team to raise money for prostate cancer, testicular cancer, and other men’s health issues. Shawn later told People that he and Nick, who are now growing mustaches in support of the cause, have moved on from their past drama.
“It’s been a long time since everything happened, and we all moved on. I think it’s been good to put our differences aside and get the spark going to get people talking about Movember.”
Shawn and Nick certainly had a lot of drama with one another while filming The Bachelorette. Shawn immediately voided his dislike of Nick upon his surprise return to the show, midway through filming, to pursue Kaitlyn. Shawn questioned Nick’s true intentions and talked badly about Nick to the other men. After Kaitlyn admitted that she and Nick had sex, Shawn’s displeasure with Nick only seemed to grow. Shawn even confronted Nick, whom he referred to not by name but as “the other guy,” in his hotel room during the group’s stay in Dublin. Shawn looked as if he was about to hit Nick.
“I don’t think you’re just here for Kaitlyn. You’re manipulative, you’re arrogant, you’re a cocky guy…I think you’re an a**hole.”
At the After the Final Rose special, Shawn and Nick awkwardly agreed to move on from what happened. Nick admitted that he could have behaved more maturely at times. Shawn said that the show placed too much emphasis on their feud. Yet they still weren’t willing hug one another as host Chris Harrison suggested they do.
Now that everyone seems to be getting along, perhaps Nick Viall, Shawn Booth, and Kaitlyn Bristowe will watch the new season of The Bachelor together when it premieres on Monday, January 4? The 20th season stars Ben Higgins, who came in third behind Nick and Shawn for Kaitlyn. As previously reported by the Inquisitr, Becca Tilley, who became good friends with Kaitlyn during their time together on the previous season of The Bachelor, reportedly returned to the show to compete for Ben.
