'The Bachelor' Season 21 Updates: Nick Viall Returns To ABC’s Dating Show; Upcoming Season’s Air Date Announced
ABC finally set an exact premiere date for "The Bachelor" season 21. Its longest-running dating show, featuring three-time runner up Nick Viall, is set to return to help the new bachelor find true love next year. The upcoming season will debut on Jan. 2, 2017, as ABC announced in its recent press conference on Tuesday, Nov. 1.
Coming back to find love on TV after three failed attempts, Viall is now keeping his hopes high to finally meet "the one" on his final quest in "The Bachelor" franchise. Fans of the dating game may still have to hang on a bit longer before they witness the new bachelor and his lady contenders. ABC made the wait less stressful though by announcing Viall's return on Jan. 2 in a two-hour premiere.
"After all these years, and all the heartbreak, it's finally Nick's turn to hand out the roses. Will he finally find that love he's craved? He believes in finding love on the series and hopes it is his time now," ABC said in its press release.
It can be recalled that the 29-year-old entrepreneur first competed for Andi Dorfman's affection on "The Bachelorette" season 10 but ended up as a runner-up. He later took his second shot with Kaitlyn Bristowe on "The Bachelorette" season 11 where he, again, ended up in second place. His third appearance in the franchise was with "Bachelor in Paradise" season 3 and went intimate with Jen Saviano. He, however, chose to stay single after the season.
ABC announced "The Bachelor" season 21 to feature Viall in August. The fandom of the said reality show were then at a shock since earlier rumors claimed that either Luke Pell, Chase McNary or Robby Hayes will star the upcoming season. This also followed Viall's failure in the first two seasons he attempted to win over other gentlemen. However, he seemed to redeem himself on "Bachelor in Paradise" where he came back groomed and showed how he is a potential bachelor in the future. He proved this further in the recently released video teaser of "The Bachelor" season 21, where he appeared in his best figure and that he, like the past bachelors, is also "scream-worthy."
Meanwhile, Viall is optimistic that he will finally find the girl he can end up with but also admits that he will not be insisting something that might not be meant to be. "I'm hopeful I'll find someone to spend the rest of my life with," he told People. "I don't want to pick someone because they're the last woman standing...My biggest fear isn't necessarily getting my heart broken. It's not finding the right one," he added.
Viall's journey with the ladies who will try to win his love on "The Bachelor" season 21 will start on Jan. 2 on ABC.
