Latest Bachelor Nick Viall has had his ups and downs when it comes to controversy. "If you weren't in love with me, why did you make love to me?" anyone? For non-Bachelor fans, that was when he not only talked about sex in the Fantasy Suite (a big no-no on the Bachelor), but also kind of shamed poor Bachelorette Andi. He also party-crashed Bachelorette Kaitlyn's season, and now as THE Bachelor, he is often seen crying, sometimes dancing, and always adorably lisp-ing (Sorry, Nick, we had to). Basically, he's been a villain and a hero throughout his tenure on the series depending on how you look at it. But whatever you think of Nick Viall, he has one SURver who is definitely NOT a fan.
During The Daily Dish podcast's recent sit down with Vanderpump Rules' Jax Taylor, the Bachelor came up in conversation, and Jax dropped a huge bomb on hosts Rachael and Megan. Turns out, Jax and Nick have a mutual friend in SoCal who was opening a hotel and wanted the pair there to draw a crowd — what Jax does best. Naturally, Jax was happy to help out a friend — but it's precisely this scenario that foiled a potential Jax-Nick bromance.
Apparently, when Jax asked Nick to take a picture to promote their friend's business Nick claimed he "didn't do social media," according to Jax. This didn't sit too well with the loyal pal, and his response was, in a word, epic: "First of all buddy, don't toot your own horn, I have no f***ing idea who you are...you don't do that? Bro, you're on the f***ing Bachelor. You're gonna be gone in two weeks and nobody will know who the f*** you are," Jax said that night. And it didn't stop there.
"Well you're a f***ing piece of sh**, " he told the lovelorn Nick who continued to refuse a picture, "Your friend brought you here as a favor to help him out, you're gonna act like that? You're a f***ing d-bag." Things escalated from there into a full-blown argument.
While Jax admits that there was some alcohol involved in the scuffle, his bad feelings for Nick remain. "I just think he's a douchebag." He threw even more shade at the Bachelor after Rachael explained that Nick has been on not one but four seasons and spinoffs of the ABC show, "Oh, for somebody who doesn't really like the show and talks negatively about the show, he's sure on it an awful lot." Let's just say we don't see Nick Viall being invited to a night out a SUR anytime soon.
