17 Insane GIFs Of Nick Viall In His Pinocchio 'Dancing With The Stars' Costume, Because Payback For 'The Bachelor' Is A Must

Eric McCandless/ABC

I’ve been covering both The Bachelor and Dancing With The Stars for a long time for Bustle, so if you’re interested in either show and you read this website often, you probably already know my feelings on Nick Viall. His Bachelor season was boring, he's not a bad person, but I’m sick of seeing his face, and he’s not that amazing a dancer on Dancing With The Stars. Public opinion turns quickly, OK? And mine, especially, because I’ve had like 52 weeks of writing about Nick Viall. That all being said, Nick's Dancing With The Stars Pinocchio costume was payback for fans for everything he’s put us fans through on The Bachelor.

Imagine this first, if you will — lederhosen rendered in bold primary colors of red and yellow, worn alongside a cap and over-rouged cheeks. Oh, and a clean-shaven face, which we haven’t seen from Nick since he was on Andi’s season of The Bachelorette and accessorized every outfit with a fringed scarf (yeah, you know you remember that, too). This outfit is everything I needed from Dancing With The Stars this season. It’s loud, it’s ugly, and it made Nick wonder out loud if partner Peta Murgatroyd hated him. I wondered that, too, Nick. But I’m just blathering on here. What I really want to present, for your viewing pleasure, are an assortment of GIFs of Nick Viall in that very same Dancing With The Stars costume. You’re welcome, world.
