Will you accept this rose?
Ladies and gentleman, your first sneak peek of Nick Viall as your new Bachelor has arrived and damn does he look good holding a rose. Thanks to E! News, we were able to get our hands on the very first promo for season 21 of everyone’s favorite reality dating show. Wearing the signature Bachelor black suit and tie, Viall is all smiles holding the trademark rose that over two dozen ladies will ultimately be vying for. Oh, and his heart, of course.
Nick’s journey to becoming the newest Bachelor has been quite a long road, considering this will be his fourth attempt at love through the franchise. He has previously participated in Andi Dorfman and Kaitlyn Bristowe’s respective seasons of The Bachelorette, and Bachelor in Paradise season three. In fact, the overwhelmingly positive feedback he received from fans on Bachelor in Paradise had a lot to do with why he was chosen to be the next Bachelor over Luke, which we are still crying about, by the way.
Although Nick was a little unsure about accepting the offer, he ultimately realized he couldn’t pass up the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity: “It’s a huge responsibility, but it’s obviously an amazing opportunity, so ultimately, I accepted,” he explained.
Nick Viall may not have been our first choice for the next Bachelor, but we have no doubt it’s going to be a very interesting season.
The new season of The Bachelor will premiere January 2017 on ABC.
