While the episode was airing, Nick took it upon himself to do a little live tweeting of all the goings-on in Mexico (and boy were there a lot of them!). The problem? His fellow Season 10-er — and Josh’s bestie — Marcus was getting a lot of airtime in those tweets. Kicking things off, McSalty wrote, “Marcus goes ‘right reason’ in the first 15 minutes. Classic!! #BachelorInParadise.”
And he wasn’t done just yet. Nick took another shot at the 26-year-old with, “Marcus setting new records for love at first sight #BachelorInParadise.” Plus, he later added, “Clare goes 3rd person 3x, Lacey sets new standard for math, & Marcus thinks falling in love in 2 weeks is taking it too slow. Awesome #BIP.”
While we would have initially seen this all as the Midwestern fella having a little sarcastic fun with his former co-star and the show itself, Marcus did not see it that way. Not long after, Marcus lashed out at Nick on social media, writing, “Man if only @viallnicholas28 could be a man and talk trash to someone's face.....that would be the day #Bachelorette #BachelorInParadise.”
Oh dear. Can’t we all just get along?
