Abhishek 'Shake' Chatterjee had reservations at Cali hotspot Nobu on the Saturday after his wedding, and now the "Love Is Blind" star has no reservations about anything he has ever said pertaining to the show's hosts, Nick and Vanessa Lachey.

In the time since "Love Is Blind's" second season premiered in February, Chatterjee has become a controversial figure on social media due to his fondness for never thinking twice when it comes to holding back his thoughts.

The 33-year-old captured reality TV devotees' ire and attention for the way he treated his ex-fiancée Deepti Vempati throughout the show's process.

His questionable treatment of those around him in the "Love Is Blind" bubble wasn't limited to his ex or fellow cast members.

Chatterjee has also expressed his distaste for the Lachey's a number of times, even planning an April Fool's joke around hosting the show for upcoming seasons!

He also memorably hit on Vanessa during the reunion while her husband was watching, much to everyone's chagrin.

Chatterjee's jabs toward the Lachey's, particularly Nick, seem to stop at no bounds.

After "Calling Nick 'A little b**ch,' he recently set his sights on an old clip of Lachey and his ex-wife Jessica Simpson from their landmark reality show "Newlyweds," and chastised Lachey on his Instagram stories for not opening the car door for Simpson.

These days, Chatterjee isn't fazed by the amount of criticism he's received, nor does he regret any of the comments he's made against the Lachey's, particularly when he blatantly hit on Vanessa during the reunion.

"[Praising a significant other's physical appearance] is a compliment unless you're an insecure, insecure guy," he told Us Weekly.

Criticizing Lachey's boyband past or how he treated Simpson were both on the table during the interview as well.

"Honestly, he treated [Jessica] Simpson like garbage for years," he continued, "That's documented, big boy. All right 98 Degrees. Are you kidding me? More like 32 degrees. You haven't been 98 degrees since 1998, pal."

Chatterjee's ire toward the Lachey's and the uncomfortable way in which he handled his advances toward Vanessa at the reunion, have not been limited toward the couple and Chatterjee, himself.

Last month, Vempati shared Chatterjee's advances toward Vanessa went beyond the reunion!

According to Today, Vempati revealed "[Chatterjee] was hitting on [Lachey] at the couple's reveal. It's so disrespectful," on "We Have The Receipts" podcast hosted by "Love Is Blind" alumna Lauren-Speed Hamilton.
