Mike Fleiss is one of the creators of The Bachelor, but he must also have a lot of time on his hands, because he’s always tweeting something or other about teasing a huge Bachelor announcement. It’s the biggest, most historic announcement ever! Of all time! Now I see where Chris Harrison gets it from on the show. Recently, Mike Fleiss teased some news about where Nick Viall (after teasing the "historic" announcement for days), and I have to say, I don’t think it’s that exciting.

I think a lot of this tweeting started around JoJo’s season of The Bachelorette. For those of you who don’t know who Reality Steve is, he’s a man in Texas who has managed to successfully and accurately spoil almost every single Bachelor and Bachelorette season. It seems that in order to try and combat the leaks that lead to spoilers, Fleiss started to tweet out “spoilers” for the show that weren’t really spoilers.

Now, The Bachelor is almost over. Nick Viall is about to choose a fiancee to take home (maybe, he doesn’t seem sure about anything), and Fleiss gave a hint as to where Nick would be going next.

From the looks of it, it seems like Nick is joining the cast of Dancing With The Stars, which is, I don’t know, not really a surprise.

Nick has mentioned before that he’d do the show, telling Entertainment Tonight early in 2017, “Who wouldn’t wanna do it?” Other outlets like People are reporting through "a source" that Nick is joining the Dancing With The Stars cast, which isn’t a confirmation, but the word is out there. Fleiss’ announcement here isn’t historic. Hell, it’s not even that interesting. Give us the good stuff, Fleiss.
