Former Bachelor star Nick Viall is getting ready for his latest dance routine — and we wonder if his fiancée Vanessa Grimaldi approves of his new makeover!
The Wisconsin native is still a contender on Dancing With the Stars and he’s definitely committed to giving his best shot at a chance to win. In preparation for DWTS Disney Night, Nick shaved off his signature beard — and he looks completely different without facial hair!
“Going with the boyish shave,” the 36-year-old wrote. “Fully embracing Pinocchio tomorrow night.”
He also shared a photo from his rehearsal with DWTS pro Peta Murgatroyd, and he revealed that they would be performing a Pinocchio-themed dance number together. Nick has been doing a great job keeping up with the competition on ABC’s hit series — but he might be focusing too much of his attention on winning a mirror ball trophy and he’s not spending enough time with his fiancé.
Source revealed to Life & Style that Vanessa, 29, moved from her hometown in Montreal, Canada to Los Angeles to support him while he competes on DWTS — under the condition that Nick would also help her start her own acting career. But he hasn’t been holding up his end of the deal, and Vanessa is threatening to break up with him if things don’t change.
“Their relationship is super tense right now because Vanessa wants Nick to promote her and help her get attention and make more money,” the source explains. “She’s warned him that if he doesn’t do that, she’ll officially leave him and head back home to Montreal.”
Before competing for Nick’s love on Season 21 of ABC’s The Bachelor, Vanessa had a very limited acting career. Her short list of acting credits includes small roles on Blue Mountain State, Being Human, and Ascension — and since she’s struggling to make it big, she’s growing increasingly jealous of Nick’s fame.
“[Vanessa] absolutely hates that Nick is getting more attention than her,” the source explained.
