Hide the drama. Katie Thurston reveals that she is blocked Nick Viall from her phone after learning he had made some “strange” comments about her on his Viall Files podcast.

“Nick Viall doesn’t like you? Nick Viall is blocked from my phone. There’s some tea for you,” the former Bachelorette, 31, told fans during a TikTok Live Q&A on Sunday, July 10. “I don’t know, Nick is just — I don’t know what to say about him be honest.” After joking that sometimes she “forgets[s] he exists,” Thurston explained that her issues with the 41-year-old reality TV personality began when she learned he had mentioned her frequently on his podcast.

“Sometimes I get direct messages like, ‘Oh my god, Nick won’t stop talking shit about you,'” the Washington native recalled. “I texted him once and said, ‘Hey, just so you know, people find the things you say [about me] kinda weird.’ And in short, he basically [turned it around on me]. He was like, ‘How great that you have fans who care about you! Do not take it personally!'”

Thurston concluded by stating, “Anyway. you do it See you up there.”

While Viall has yet to comment on Thurston’s allegations, the former Bachelor has never been shy about sharing his unfiltered thoughts on fellow Bachelor Nation members. In March 2020, he caused some drama when he claimed that Tayshia Adams would “have you in bed by 8:30” if named the franchise’s lead lady. “She was very upset with me about it, and I said, ‘Is it that bad?’ Great people often don’t make great television,” Viall said Us weekly exclusively six months later, adding that Adams, 31, later unfollowed him on social media. “I stand by that. …I’ve heard a handful from Tayshia [other] Time I said, “How does that bother you?” I do not understand.”

Adams was rumored to be in the running for the Bachelorette back in 2020 Clare Crawley was officially announced as the main actor. However, the 41-year-old hairstylist left his now-ex after two weeks of filming Dale Moss and the California native subsequently took on the role of The Bachelorette for the remainder of Season 16. “We’re all sensitive people in Bachelor Nation. … I thought she was wonderful at the time. That was really just supporting Clare,” he said Us back then.

Two weeks later, Viall ranked his four appearances in the franchise from most to least popular – “Bachelors in paradise, bachelor, Kaitlyn [Bristowe’s season] and And me [Dorfman’s season]’ – before claiming that his competitors in Dorfman’s season were ‘just kind of shitty’.

“I mean, a lot of the guys from Kaitlyn’s season are actually good friends to this day,” he explained in September 2020. “Although I wasn’t particularly close to them during filming, they were definitely just a better group of guys.”

Viall continued at the time, “When things went wrong in Kaitlyn’s days, it was like, ‘OK, well, I’m hurt, but I got over it.’ With Andi’s season I was just a hot mess, I didn’t know what was going on and I had to watch the haircut [I had] all the season that was in the sky. I just don’t know what I did.”
