The next couple to hit the dance floor is Nick Viall and Peta Murgatroyd, dancing a cha cha to “Let Me Love You” by DJ Snake and Tiësto featuring Justin Bieber.

Julianne Hough tells him he needs to improve his footwork, while Bruno Tonioli says he looks like a “pop idol.” He adds that he liked the feel of the dance. Carrie Ann Inaba thinks he has potential but encourages him to relax to improve his dance moves. Len Goodman agrees with the disjointedness but says it was good for week one. They score a 24.

According to ABC, Viall has taken many chances to find love over the years. Most recently, he appeared on season 21 of “The Bachelor” and proposed to Vanessa Grimaldi. “One of 11 siblings, Nick maintains close ties with his family. His parents, Chris and Mary, have been married for 37 years. Nothing would make them happier than to see Nick find what they have found in each other.”

Now in its 24th season, “Dancing with the Stars” is hosted by Tom Bergeron and sports broadcaster Erin Andrews. The judging panel is composed of ballroom experts Len Goodman, Carrie Ann Inaba, Julianne Hough and Bruno Tonioli. Their scores, along with America’s votes, determine who gets to stay and who is sent home each week as couples vie for the coveted Mirrorball trophy.

The current contestants include Olympic gold medalist gymnast Simone Biles with partner Sasha Farber, Fifth Harmony’s Normani Kordei with Val Chmerkovskiy, “Saturday Night Live” alum Chris Kattan with Witney Carson and this season’s Bachelor Nick Viall with new mom Peta Murgatroyd. Other stars who will be competing include Heather Morris, Bonner Bolton, David Ross, Mr. T, Erika Jayne, Rashad Jennings, Nancy Kerrigan and Charo.
