Nick Viall has admitted that he isn’t bothered by William Shatner’s recent Twitter campaign aimed to get him booted off Dancing With the Stars. In fact, the Bachelor alum was more shocked to discover that the Canadian actor even knows who he is.

"I was kind of watching the fight like a fan myself. Like, I was just kind of -- I wasn't really a part of it. I was like, 'Oh my gosh William Shatner knows who I am, this is amazing.' Like, that was my reaction." Nick revealed in an interview with ET, adding that he is “a fan [of] William.”

It looks like the two men have made amends with William asking Nick on Twitter in typical Bachelor fashion if he will ‘accept this rose.’ "As a Dad w/ daughters I'm not happy w/ what you've done in the past. Maybe you've matured now?" William tweeted.

The Montreal native has since even complimented the reality star on his dance moves, tweeting "Saw Nick Viall dance. He can really dance. I hope he's as good a lover."

Earlier this month, Nick finally found love on The Bachelor, after failed attempts on The Bachelorette and Bachelor in Paradise. The 36-year-old proposed to Canadian Vanessa Grimaldi during the emotional season 21 finale. The special needs teacher recently left her hometown of Montreal behind to move to Los Angeles to be with her fiancé as he competes for the mirror ball trophy with partner Peta Murgatroyd.
