"Bachelor" star Nick Viall seems dissatisfied of his week two performance on the "Dancing With the Stars" stage. He feels that he has let his choreographer Peta Murgatroyd down with his performance, which was not up to the mark.

Nick Viall and Peta Murgatroyd opted for a foxtrot to "Love Me Now." While the judges saw a little improvement, they added that the reality ace needed to work really hard. Carrie Ann Inaba marked the improvement from last week's performance and advised the contestant to breathe and relax while he danced. Julian Hough said that she loved the choreographer-contestant pair whereas Len Goodman called the situation "hectic." Bruno Toniolo also advised Viall to concentrate and lead in the dance as it seemed "too skippy." The pair scored a 25.

Nick Viall and his choreographer were rehearsing in Los Angeles when Entertainment Tonight crew had a chance to talk to them about how they felt and what would be their next step. "It cut me at my core," Viall told ET's Kevin Frazier on Wednesday.

"It hurt. The truth is, I felt really bad, just because I think some of the feedback we got from the judges was even directed at Peta for almost, like, making the choreography too difficult. But, the truth is, it wasn't like she has amazing [difficult] choreography."


Nick Viall praised Peta Murgatroyd for the efforts she had put in and said that "it felt like ... I feel like I let her down." He noted that the choreographer had delivered a baby not long ago and still she was killing it. He said that he was expected to do follow the steps and even he "didn't do it."

While Nick Viall praised his "amazing" partner, Peta Murgatroyd encouraged the reality star, People mentioned. She said that Viall is all good at rehearsals but he is nervous on the actual performance day.
