While tons of Bachelor fans are team Madison Prewett, one person is definitely not. Former Bachelor Nick Viall did not hold back when recently talking about Madison. He shaded Madi when he came to Peter’s defense again. While Nick says he has no issues with Madison, he says she should be honest.
Nick calls out Madison for Instagram
US Weekly shared details about what went down. Let’s first go back in time to when Peter Weber’s season of The Bachelor first aired. Following Madison’s one-on-one date a comment was made on Instagram. The problem with this is the comment was made by Madison. It said, “Beautiful date, Madi. You are so genuine and real.” Fans believe Madison had a fake account and forgot to switch between the two before commenting. Madison has denied it all saying her friend was logged into her account. Most haven’t forgot what happened. Nick obviously didn’t forget this either.
So, now Nick spoke his thoughts on it all during his most recent podcast, The Viall Files. Nick said, “We also know Madison to be a little bit of a liar. … People want to forget — I know Madison wants to forget it — but her Instagram. It’s a fact she did that. It is silly and trivial. There’s a logical explanation for it that she wanted people to like her. It’s a totally relatable thing.”
The former Bachelor also called her out for lies, being vain
Nick continues on in his podcast and held nothing back. He said he is aware that Madison thinks he doesn’t like her. He also admits he knows people think he has been too hard on her. With all that said, Nick said he thinks Madi is fine. He even admitted to defending her in the past.
However, Nick said, “But if you’re going to be righteous and you’re going to be pious and you’re going to, like, talk about your relationship with God and how you want to be example to young men, blah, blah, blah, I hold you to a higher standard, so don’t be a liar. Don’t be vain. I’m vain, I can be vain. Don’t have your family use Bruce Pearl’s house for your hometown and sell it as your own home when it’s not your home.”
Nick went on to say that he has spoken to producers and while they like her, they also feel she can be a little manipulative and a liar at times.

So incredibly thankful for this amazing journey I’ve had the honor of being a part of. I have grown so much and am stronger than I was going in. I have learned the importance of acceptance, forgiveness, and grace. As Peter and I have decided to go our separate ways, I am confident that we will both move in the direction of our purpose and never forget that God has a plan in all things. I will always love and respect him. I am convinced our paths were meant to cross and we are both better because they did. @pilot_pete you are an amazing guy and I’m thankful for you. I will always be your biggest fan. And to the amazing women I met this season, I will love you for life. Thank you @abcnetwork for allowing me to embark on this journey. ❤️
Nick talks about Peter’s situation with Kelley
Madison has made her way into the spotlight again as she started to do interviews. She claims Peter texted her just two days prior to being seen in Chicago with Kelley. Madi claims Peter wanted to get back together and said he misses her. Peter commented on a fan post saying there was more to the story. He then followed that up by unfollowing her on Instagram.
Nick thinks Peter is not getting enough credit for doing what he wants to do. He said, “Every Bachelor goes through it. [The women] on your season love to, like, they’re starving for attention. … It gets annoying, like, they have no connection with him whatsoever.”
