There’s a lot of excitement going on in Nick Viall’s life right now. He just got engaged to Vanessa Grimaldi, and started training for Dancing with the Stars. It’s been quite a month! And which grueling reality TV show experience is more painful, you might wonder?

Well, Viall revealed that being the Bachelor was VERY hard — possibly one of the hardest things he’s ever done — during an interview for DWTS Facebook Live. That’s right, even more challenging than eight hours of daily dance practice.

With Grimaldi on one side and DWTS partner Peta Murgatroyd (who is engaged to Maksim Chmerkovskiy) on the other, Viall acknowledges that both experiences were “incredibly difficult,” but his revelation comes down to a very specific detail.

via giphyViall goes on to emphasize that he had a great time doing both shows, which helps make everything worth it. “But as hard as they both are, they’re a lot of fun, too. And hopefully with Dancing, as many good things happen from that as things happen from being the Bachelor. They’re both pretty hard, but also equally amazing.” We’re sure that he’s going to kick butt on DWTS!

There have been a series of playful photos of Viall with his dancing partner and her baby son Shai, along with Grimaldi, who is a huge fan of #teambabygotbach. We just know they’re gonna kill it on that dance floor!

How could you not root for this team?!

We’re wishing Viall the very best of luck on DWTS (hope it doesn’t hurt TOO much), and also as he moves forward with Grimaldi in planning their future.

Keep living it up and seizing all the opportunities that come your way, Nick!
