The 2017 season of The Bachelor, featuring Nick Viall, is currently filming in Los Angeles. Reality Steve does an incredible job of letting fans know, as the season tapes, which women are competing, what locations they travel to, who the dates are with, and, of course, rose ceremony eliminations. It’s still early in the filming of Nick’s season so not all the spoilers are out there yet, but some things are slowly coming out. Don’t read further if you do not want to know some details about Nick’s upcoming season.
Reality Steve has already shared six of the women competing for Nick’s heart this season. He revealed that tonight will be the third rose ceremony for Viall. This means there have already been two weeks worth of dates for Nick. Hopefully Nick is on his way to finding that someone special after having been runner-up on two seasons of The Bachelorette.
So what epic dates has Nick been taking his girls on? Reality Steve shared on his blog that Nick’s first one-on-one date was with a girl named Danielle, who Steve has not yet shared information on. Nick and Danielle started out their date by taking a boat around the Balboa Peninsula near Newport Beach, California. Viall then proceeded to have dinner with his date in the middle of Main Street. Following dinner, Nick and Danielle went to Balboa Fun Zone where they took a ride on the Ferris Wheel. Us Weekly also shared news of Viall on his carnival date saying that a source shared that it looked like Nick and Danielle were really enjoying themselves. Steve shared there was also a boat that circled the harbor during Nick’s date revealing romantic things displayed on a message board.
One of the next dates Nick went on will surely go down as one of the best in Bachelor history. Viall took seven of the ladies on a group date and surprised them with attending and performing at the Backstreet Boys concert at the iHeart Radio Theater in Los Angeles on Friday. Reality Steve tweeted the night it happened that Nick was at the show. Bachelor alumni Becca Tilley and Ashley Iaconetti were also at the concert and posted snapchat videos of the date. Today Reality Steve shared more about that epic night for Nick. Steve says Nick and the girls had an hour prior to the show to learn the dance. One girl would then be chosen for some one-on-one time based on who they felt did the best.
The chosen girl was Danielle and not the same Danielle from the one-on-one date discussed above. There will be two Danielles on Nick’s season. Entertainment Tonight shared that Nick and the chosen lady would take center stage for a slow dance during the show. They then reported Viall and his date kissed while the other six ladies on the date danced and watched from behind them. Fans will have to wait and see what drama that kiss will bring as jealousy kicks in with the other girls.
Reality Steve will surely have more dirt on the season as he gets more confirmation from sources. For now he says he is not even sure where Nick and the ladies will be filming Episode 4. Steve is guessing they will remain in Los Angeles for one more episode, but he has not confirmed a location. The Bachelor creator Mike Fleiss has also been tweeting hints and photos of Nick filming, but of course he hasn’t revealed any huge spoilers for fans.
Nick Viall shocked Bachelor fans when he was named for the leading role over Luke Pell near the end of August. Host Chris Harrison has shared with Us Weekly that Nick was chosen for the job because ultimately he is the most sincere about finding love. He has been runner-up twice and he is very deserving to finally get his shot at finding true love. Nick, like everyone else, is hoping this will be his final appearance looking for love on television. Nick’s season will wrap up filming in November and the first episode is scheduled to air in early January, 2017, on ABC.
