Nick Viall is working hard on the new season of The Bachelor and spoilers hint a mysterious brunette may have won his heart.
Filming for next season is still underway, yet Vial was spotted getting hot and heavy with the brunette suitor on a hometown date.
Did Viall finally find love on ABC’s hit franchise?
TMZ leaked footage of Viall’s hometown date, which shows Viall engaging in some intense PDA with the unknown contestant.
Viall is shown holding hands with the woman and putting his arm around her at one point in the evening.
According to Bustle, the date took place in Viall’s hometown of Waukesha, Wisconsin, which is the same location he took Andi Dorfman on The Bachelorette.
While Viall and Dorfman bought cheese curds together, the reality star took his latest love to a deli for specially made sandwiches.
It isn’t known if Viall’s relationship with the mystery woman is serious, though taking her back home to see his family is a big deal on The Bachelor.
Hollywood Life is reporting that the hometown date is a big step for Viall and could indicate that he wants to take his romance with the brunette to another level.
After all, the hometown date likely happened late in the season, which means that the contestant made it through several elimination rounds.
At the same time, Viall obviously likes this girl enough to have his family meet her.
Based on the video, Viall looked absolutely taken by the mystery girl. Does this mean Viall is falling in love yet again? Or will his romance falter by the season finale?
For now, there hasn’t been enough information leaked to know if Viall and the brunette suitor are serious about their romance.
Whatever is happening behind the scenes, the leaked footage matches up with what executive producer Mike Fleiss has been sharing on Twitter.
Fleiss recently posted a couple of teaser images that feature Viall in his role on The Bachelor.
The first photo showed Viall on what looked like a farm, complete with a few baby cows.
“Guess where #TheBachelor is now…,” Fleiss wrote alongside the image on Twitter.
Another image featured the reality star coaching a girls soccer team.
“Behind the scenes… #TheBachelor,” Fleiss wrote on Twitter.
While fans might question if Viall will find love this season, it looks like the leaked video is real.
In fact, the library in Waukesha previously told the media that Viall was spotted hanging out in town at a joint named The Steaming Cup.
The library did not release any more details about Viall’s stay at the cafe and whether or not he was accompanied by a woman.
Unfortunately, the identity of the girl has not been revealed, making it hard to determine if she is a contestant on The Bachelor.
There is always a possibility that the mystery girl is not a part of the show, though given how Viall is currently shooting the new season, it seems likely that she is a contestant.
Viall has attempted to find love three separate times on reality TV.
He appeared twice on The Bachelorette and managed to come in second place both times.
Just this past summer, Viall tried to spark a romance on Bachelor in Paradise.
He appeared to hit it off well with Jen Saviano, but the two parted ways during the Bachelor in Paradise finale, shortly after NBC announced Viall was their next lead man on The Bachelor.
Fans can only hope that the new video means Viall found love this time around.
The new season of The Bachelor is expected to air in 2017 on NBC.
