Filming for the Bachelor 2017 season has spent several days in Wisconsin, with Nick Viall and his ladies going on dates. Reality Steve has tweeted several photos and videos of activities unfolding with production. One-on-one and group dates have taken place around Milwaukee.
An early favorite for Nick Viall of The Bachelor may already be in order. As filming continues for Episodes 5 and 6, there’s talk that Danielle Lombard might be one of the women catching Nick’s eye.
Steve released videos of Nick Viall dancing with Danielle Lombard on Thursday night at the Pabst Theater in Milwaukee. They were cavorting and kissing onstage as Chris Lane sang “Fix” and “For Her.” As fans can see, Nick and Danielle are really getting into it. Rumors are already swirling that Danielle Lo is the early favorite for the show since Nick was serenading her onstage at the Backstreet Boys concert last week in LA. Danielle was part of a group date that included five other contestants, but it was Danielle that Nick was singing to.
Nick Viall and Danielle Lombard were also photographed walking on the street during daylight hours for one of their scenes (as seen below). They saw a fireworks show later on, with a group of Nick’s friends in attendance. While at the Chris Lane performance, Steve wrote they only stayed for about 20 minutes or so.
A few weeks ago @nickviall from #thebachelor was in Waukesha and I missed him by a few minutes. I have been obsessed with this show since the beginning so I was determined to find him again! This time I got to say hello and shake his hand..however he wasn't allowed to take pictures with people this time. He said he would validate my instagram post so here's to hoping! #nickviall #nickviallinWaukesha #thebachelor #filming
In his spoilers for the Bachelor 2017 season, Steve tweeted that Danielle had a nip slip due to her plunging neckline. He noted that the model probably isn’t overly concerned since she models bikinis and lingerie. Bachelor spoilers expert added that Danielle Lombard has a flower tattoo on the back of her neck, and two butterfly tattoos on her ankles.
In other Bachelor spoilers, Steve informed fans that a group date was planned for a cheese farm on Friday.
A group date was filmed later on Saturday at the Paine Art Center and Gardens in Oshkosh. Steve didn’t release any names on which contestants were with The Bachelor star for that date.
On Saturday, Reality Steve tweeted that another one-on-one date was being taped at Skateland in Waukesha. It wasn’t open to the public, and only those with VIP passes were permitted. He later tweeted that Nick was on a one-on-one date with Raven Gates at Skateland in Waukesha. She’s 25, from Hoxie, Arkansas, and owns a boutique in Jonesboro, Arkansas. Viall and Gates went to Nick’s younger sister’s soccer game before skating. For their dinner date, they went to the Milwaukee Art Museum, Steve tweeted.

Steve has also teased that a woman from Nick’s past and a contestant connected to the Bachelor franchise will appear on the show. On Monday, he informed fans on Twitter that he’ll release the identity of the woman on Tuesday. He also has more names of contestants to leak.
There’s no way of telling if Danielle Lombard is Nick Viall’s ultimate favorite so far on The Bachelor, but Reality Steve noted that Nick’s definitely into her. He added that she might rub some people the wrong way because she’s all over the internet posing for photos with barely any clothes on. This is hardly anything new for women going on The Bachelor as contestants. For years rosters have been immersed with bikini models.
Several other contestants have yet to be named. Nick Viall will likely fall into the same trap so many Bachelor leads have done before him — have multiple favorites.
The Bachelor 2017 premieres Monday, January 2 on ABC at 8 p.m., ET/PT. Are you looking forward to the new season?
