When Cody Sattler pounded his chest at Nick Viall during Episode 5 of The Bachelorette, we were pretty sure that was the last we’d see of that particular v-neck. Satts looked ready to burst out of his shirtsleeves Hulk style when Nick referred to himself as Andi Dorfman’s frontrunner.

Thankfully, Cody kept his polyblend intact, but tensions stayed high, with some of the guys in the house taking sides. One guy in particular who’s chiming in on the sparring match is Josh Murray. Who does he think won the bro-off?

The baller, and true frontrunner, took to Twitter to defend Cody and his muscles, tweeting “Love my boy Cody Sattler, tell it how it is brother.” Looks like jocks of a feather flock together.   

But Nick was not without supporters. JJ-pot-stirrer-O’Brien came to Nick’s rescue on the social media site by tweeting “don’t worry @viallnicholas28 - I'm #TeamFrontrunner for life…” We’re not sure how good it is to have the pantsapreneur on your team these days, however, after the way viewers lambasted him during the June 16 episode.

Josh may truly believe Cody’s “don’t mock me!” outburst was justified, but he could also be taking aim at Nick in retaliation. A video that was leaked shortly after filming ended shows Nick Mc’Salty-Pants bashing Josh, calling him “super emotional and really insecure,” among other not-so-niceties.

What do you think of Josh defending Cody? Tell us below.
