The Bachelor star Nick Viall is slowly becoming a hot contender for Mirrorball Trophy on Dancing with the Stars.
Monday's episode of the ABC dancing reality show saw Viall and partner Peta Murgatroyd putting on a stellar performance that earned them a score of 34 out of 40– their highest of the season. The theme for Monday was Disney Night and Viall decided to experiment with his looks by shaving off his beard.

Speaking with Erin Andrews after his performance, Viall said it had been "a year and a half" since he last shaved his beard.
"I was a little reluctant at first, but then I was like, 'I'm just gonna own it. Let's go for it. What do we have to do?'" Viall said. "And then we just came out with blush."
