Contradictory reports have surfaced concerning Nick appearing on the show. Radar Online published a report a short while ago with a source claiming production wasn’t interested in casting another Bachelor star for Season 24 of DWTS. More reports than not, however, have alleged otherwise. It’s no secret that Nick would love to be a contestant on the show following his journey in finding love on The Bachelor.
“I mean, I haven’t given it much thought. I think it would be fun, you know?” Viall told ET in January about being a contestant on DWTS.
“Right now I am focused on being The Bachelor. [But] if they asked — I mean, I don’t think I would say my first thought wouldn’t be no, but I think anyone would feel lucky to even be considered.”
In an update by Reality Steve on Twitter, Nick will be a contestant on the Dancing with the Stars 2017 cast. He posted the tweet on February 27.
“Yes, he’s on it. Not sure if he’ll be officially announced w the rest of cast Wednesday on GMA, but he’s on.”
