The Bachelor’s Nick & Vanessa Go on Double Date With DWTS’s Peta & Maks
Cutest double date ever!
Nick Viall and Peta Murgatroyd took a quick break from rehearsing for the Dancing With the Stars premiere to go on a date with their respective fiancés — Vanessa Grimaldi and fellow DWTS pro, Maksim Chmerkovskiy.
The gorgeous gang went out for dinner on Saturday, March 18 and it honestly looked like the best group date ever!
“It was a quick transition, you can say that. But it’s nice to be back and I’m so thankful that I have Nick as a partner. He’s going to be awesome,” she told Access Hollywood.
“[He’s] kind of exactly what I expected and I liked that because he was real on TV and he’s real in real life, so it was a nice surprise that it wasn’t this other character coming in.”
The 36-year-old doesn’t have any dance experience, but his Australian partner thinks he’s catching on just fine.
“He was really quick, he’s got quick feet, which is amazing because he’s tall and he’s a big dude.”
However, he still has work to do.
“I would say we need to work on his arms. They’re long. They just hang sometimes. Vanessa’s going to work on them at home.”
We all know Nick’s a fit guy — have you checked out his Instagram page?! — but dancing has done a number on his body.
“Everything she tells me to do hurts my body. I literally iced my hips and I’m walking around with bags of ice in my pants. Not a good look.”
Though they still have a lot of work to do, Team Baby Got Bach is determined to keep the friendly family rivalry going until the end.
“We’re very cordial about this, but everybody wants to make the finals, obviously. Maks has a good partner, Val [Chmerkovskiy] has a very good partner, and I’ve got Nick,” she joked.
“I can’t let her lose to her fiancé and brother-in-law. It’s on me,” he said.
We can’t wait to see this pair hit the dance floor!
Dancing With the Stars premieres tonight, Monday, March 20, at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
