Among the many talking points of the night was a very brief behind-the-scenes moment that ended up going viral.
The Internet was all over it, and Bonner was asked about it in an interview with Entertainment Tonight: "I was just stargazed by Nick [Viall] and Peta's [Murgatroyd] performance and I was looking at the TV screen.
There was some hand placement that went south, so to speak," he said, but the crotch grab was "totally unintentional." Loverz its #clapbackseason Lets talk about the awkward hand...
actually since I've had #nipplegate already, lets just call it #handgatepic.twitter.com/yhdAQwlkfx Bonner and Sharna definitely showed chemistry during the premiere, and we wouldn't be surprised if a "showmance" was played up all season, but it definitely did look like an innocent moment, and not Bonner being caught in the act of being extra friendly with his partner.
