Nick Viall is well on his way to finding love as the Season 21 star of The Bachelor. After spending the first week of filming in Los Angeles, cameras will now follow Nick around the globe as he hands out roses to the girls who may have a shot at becoming his future wife.
Taping for Season 21 started during the last weekend in September, and the dates and rose ceremonies are moving along quickly. Week 4 will be filmed next week in a place that is near and dear to Nick’s heart.
Can’t wait for the January 2, 2017, Bachelor premiere on ABC to find out what transpires during Nick’s season? Here’s the latest scoop, including the low-down on his ladies, photos and video of his first dates, and information about where the cast and crew will travel this season.
Warning: Bachelor Season 21 spoilers ahead!
When filming started last month, Bachelor creator Mike Fleiss was more than willing to tweet out some pics of Nick and some of his ladies meeting for the first time. Although he didn’t reveal any details about who the girls are and where they went on their dates with Nick, it didn’t take long for that information to surface online.
According to a previous report from the Inquisitr, the names and photos of six girls have already been released, and most of them are at least a decade younger than Nick, who turned 36-years-old last week.
The dates have been the usual mix of dinner in the middle of a street, a mock wedding, and dancing on stage at a concert. For Backstreet Boys fans, the group date episode that features the boy band will be a great one, for everyone else, it will be a chance to see Nick put on his best dance moves (Dancing with the Stars next?) and get his sexy on with a few girls on stage.
According to Reality Steve, Nick and the girls who remain will soon be leaving the mansion with filming in L.A. wrapping up this week. His spoilers indicate that filming for Episode 4 will be filmed next week in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, where Nick grew up.
On Ben Higgins’ season, he took the twins home to meet his parents when they filmed in his home state of Indiana. Fans can expect producers to do the same thing, but will a front-runner or a girl Nick is ready to eliminate get to meet his family? As the season progresses, fans can expect to hear the details on Nick’s Milwaukee dates, including who he took home and who he eliminated at the rose ceremony.
When filming in Wisconsin is done, Reality Steve states that Nick and his girls will make another stop in the U.S. — filming for Episode 5 will take place in New Orleans.
Will they ever leave the country and travel someplace warm and tropical? Of course!
Although Steve isn’t sure where they will go to film Episode 6, he is certain that Episode 7 (one episode before the hometown dates) will take place in St. Thomas at the Preserve at Botany Bay.
If Steve’s spoilers are correct, viewers will see Nick pick his final four girls in St. Thomas, and he will head to their hometown during Episode 8, then to a still unknown location for the overnight dates (Episode 9) and the finale rose ceremony.
Of course, producers could change things up a bit to keep fans (and those who spoil the show) on their toes, so we won’t know for sure until the Bachelor begins airing on January 2.
Filming for Nick Viall’s season of The Bachelor should wrap up mid to late November. By then, spoilers should leak out about Nick’s final four girls, details about the overnight dates, and the names of the two ladies who will compete for the final rose.
