The Bachelor star Nick Viall, although controversial, started his season as Prince Charming, but according to sources, that drastically changed as Season 21 progressed.
"Most of the women complained he was a complete pig," a source toldLife & Style.
Sources say some of the bachelorettes were "so disgusted" by Viall's behavior on the show, they actually walked off the set multiple times.
"The girls just didn't like him," the source told the magazine despite the fact many of the women were smitten with the 36-year-old former software salesman upon first meeting him. "If it was just one or two leaving, it would have made for good TV. But it was a lot of them!"
Producers reportedly found themselves doing damage control as the contestants stormed off the set before multiple Rose Ceremonies due to Viall's actions.
"Producers had to talk to the girls one-on-one," the source revealed. "They begged them not to walk away from a promising future."
If that didn't work, the bachelorettes were reportedly baited with the fame that comes with more exposure on reality TV.
"[Producers] even promised them slots on Bachelor in Paradise. They did anything they could to try to convince them to come back," the source added.
So what did Viall allegedly do that was so terrible and awful? According to Life & Style, the Bachelor made "lewd comments" at the ladies and even tried to have sex with some of them when cameras weren't rolling.
"He would say things like, 'Wow, the things I could do to you,' and 'You have the nicest rack I've ever seen,'" said the source.
Viall gushed before The Bachelor season began airing that he found love on the show, but sources say he'll end up being the most hated Bachelor in franchise history, which is saying a lot since Juan Pablo Galavis took that title a few years ago.
"A lot of the girls thought it was torture to sit through the Rose Ceremonies when they weren't interested in Nick anyway," an insider explained. "Imagine standing there and wishing that your name doesn't get called!"
In early November, a source told In Touch Weekly the women viewed Viall as "completely arrogant" and "a total diva." To make matters worse, the source claimed three of the Final 4 bachelorettes threatened to quit.
"That would be news to me," Viall told Reality TV World last month when asked about such rumors. "But yeah, I mean, as far as I know that would not be remotely accurate. But again, I guess you'll just have to watch to see if there's any validity to that. But I mean, from my end, it's certainly news."
