DWTS 24 Celebrity Profile: Nick Viall
Essentially, Nick Viall is a pickup artist. So, it's no wonder why the ABC executives paired him with America's new favorite mom, and wife of Maks, Peta Murgatroyd. Not that there's anything to worry about, as Nick is engaged, and ready for a fresh start by way of Dancing with the Stars.
Let's look a little closer at why this is a great move for Nick and for DWTS 24.
DWTS Pro: Peta Murgatroyd
Most Known For: Reality Television
3 Reasons Why Nick Viall is Perfect for DWTS
1. He's Resilient
We aren't talking about working the graveyard shift in the Emergency Room, but the guy has had his heart broken on multiple occasions as part of our television entertainment. That's got to say something about his fighting spirit.
2. He isn't Camera Shy
Viall has turned a sales job into a semi-permanent role as a televised dating celebrity, which has led to some modeling work. The guy has a great smile, shows wonderful charisma, which should all make for a solid campaign in his first non-dating televised competition.
3. He's Athletic
The guy is in great shape, and at 6'2" has the stature to pull off the look of both Ballroom and Latin dancing - with the help of Peta Murgatroyd, of course.
5 Things You May Not Know About Nick Viall

5. Track & Field
Most humans would turn down an opportunity to date on television, dance on television, or just sing Karaoke at a local dive bar. No word yet on the karaoke, but Viall seems to have the type of internal composition to handle the pressure of dancing in public.
Not to mention that even the most scathing feedback from the judging panel will be laughable in comparison to televised heartbreak. Here's to a great season, and happy future for the former Bachelor.
