Playing EXCLUSIVE: Nick Viall on His Epic Feud With William Shatner: It's 'Amazing' He Knows Who I Am

Nick Viall has no hard feelings towards William Shatner.

ET was backstage at Dancing With the Stars on Monday night, when the Bachelor star commented on their surprising feud and subsequent truce.

"I heard that he made up with me," Viall, 36, joked to ET's Cameron Mathison. "I was kind of watching the fight like a fan myself. Like, I was just kind of -- I wasn't really a part of it. I was like, 'Oh my gosh William Shatner knows who I am, this is amazing.' Like, that was my reaction."

Viall's partner, Peta Murgatroyd, also stood up for the reality star, even though Shatner made it clear on Twitter that he had no beef with the two-time mirror ball champion.

"I know he's a big fan," Murgatroyd said of Shatner. "He loves me but I was like, 'Why doesn't he love my Nick? What’s wrong?'"

To this day, Viall said he isn't sure why the 86-year-old Star Trek legend initially urged fans not to vote for him.

"I'm like, I'm sorry for doing whatever it is I may or may not have done to you," he said. "But anyways, I'm a fan, William."

Last week, Shatner offered a peace offering to Viall.

"Will you accept this [rose emoji]?" he tweeted. "As a Dad w/ daughters I'm not happy w/ what you've done in the past. Maybe you've matured now?"

"Saw Nick Viall dance. He can really dance," he also wrote. "I hope he's as good a lover."

As for Viall, it was all good.

"Always been a fan on this end Captain!!" he tweeted back. "Happy Belated Birthday."
