The Bachelorette's Nick Viall fires back at Shawn Booth
Shawn Booth may have gotten Kaitlyn Bristowe's final rose, but Nick Viall seems to want to make sure he also doesn't get the last word.
One day after Kaitlyn Bristowe and her new fiancée Shawn Booth joked about him during their national TV tour, Viall is firing back.
"Shawn really enjoys saying things about me," Viall said during a Wednesday interview with Good Morning America. "It just seems weird, like why he would talk about me so much."
Granted, the two boys' feud was one of the most talked about parts of The Bachelorette Season 11, so it kind of makes sense that there would be a lot of questions surrounding their drama — especially given that Viall and Bristowe stirred up a ton of controversy by publicly admitting to sleeping together long before their Fantasy Suite date.
Viall continued, saying he feels like the "world's biggest joke" in response to ever-joking Bristowe, who called the moment when he broken-heartedly threw her would-be engagement ring a "weak toss."
"I would have gone overhand," Booth said, further rubbing salt in the wound.
The poor guy just got his heart broken, after all. But it's hard not to laugh along, at least a little. Sometimes you have to make light of situations like this. But we totally get how Viall is well over the joke. This is the second time he's been broken-hearted on The Bachelorette, after all. He was also rejected by Andi Dorfman in Season 10, right before he was about to propose.
But don't worry, Viall is moving on just fine.
"I'm excited to be out there," he said. "I am excited to get back out there and meet a great girl."
On the upside to the heartbreak this season, Viall also redeemed his reputation after getting dubbed arrogant during Dorfman's season. No doubt, he'll have no trouble with the ladies now.
