The Bachelorette Season 11 has already been filled with shocking twists, one of which was Kaitlyn Bristowe’s decision to include another suitor, Nick Viall.
Bristowe’s decision has not been met without controversy, and Bachelorette alum Andi Dorfman has even taken to Twitter to give Bristowe a word of warning about her former flame. However, Nick does have some people who are rooting for him, and one of his fans happens to be another former Bachelorette star, Ali Fedotowsky.
Fedotowsky let the world know that she’s in Viall’s corner with a long blog post titled “Worst Group of Guys Ever? #TeamNick,” in which she explained why she actually likes him.
“Now let’s talk about the guy I do like – Nick Viall! I am so pumped he is back. And as you can see from Kaitlyn’s face, she is pretty pumped too. This is the look of a girl in total lust! And being in lust is ok, that’s what ‘LOVE at first sight’ is in the beginning.”
She continued, “I know many of you are pissed that Nick waited so long to come on the show but I assure you it was not his choice to wait. That decision was absolutely the producers decision and it creates good drama right when the show needs it on most seasons – around episode 4 and 5. Usually most of the douche bags are gone by week 4 – however, Kaitlyn had more tools than the average season so it’s taking her a bit longer to get rid of hers. But now this new story line creates more juicy drama for the episodes ahead.”
Fedotowsky clearly sees something good in Viall, but what about the fact that he revealed his sexual encounter with Andi on the air during the After the Final Rose special? Well, she actually thinks it proves there’s something wholesome about his character, because sex meant something to him.
“One last thing about Nick. I know many of you are upset that he called Andi out last season for what happened in the fantasy suites and since Andi is a pal of mine, I definitely didn’t love that he did that either. But I absolutely don’t judge him for it,” she wrote. “If he were a woman, we would applaud the decision to call the Bachelor out for sleeping with multiple women. Why should we be upset with Nick about it just because he is a man? I talked to him about it afterwards and he told me he simply acted out of emotion. He was emotional about what happened and it just came out. I’m not going to hold it against him. I actually like the fact that sex MEANT something to him beyond just the physical act of doing it – no pun intended.”
