The Bachelor Nick Viall will begin handing out keys to the Fantasy Suite this weekend and hopefully, there will be a fireplace to keep things extra-cozy during the overnight dates that are being filmed in chilly Finland.
Six weeks ago, Nick greeted 30 ladies at the Bachelor Mansion. After speed dating his way around the world in hopes of finding the girl of his dreams, he has narrowed down his choices to three ladies.

Within the next three weeks, cameras will be rolling as Nick goes on his last round of one-on-one dates, spends the night with each of his final three girls, and gets down on one knee to propose to his final pick.
What if the fourth time isn’t a charm for Nick? There’s a chance that he could walk away from the final rose ceremony single (again), but considering host Chris Harrison recently told Us Weekly that Nick had a “full breakdown,” complete with “man tears” during filming, it sounds like he’s having a tough time letting girls go.
According to a new report from Reality Steve, Nick spent the last week visiting the hometowns of his final four girls — Rachel Lindsay, a 31-year-old Dallas-based attorney (first photo below); Raven Gates, a boutique shop owner from Hoxie, Arkansas (photo below); and two other ladies whose names have not been leaked online — yet.

When hometowns were done, the girls all gathered at the William Hotel in Brooklyn, New York, on Friday, November 4 where one girl got her heart broken and three girls packed their bags for chilly Finland.

Reality Steve reports that Nick and his ladies arrived in Finland on Saturday and Fantasy Suite dates will start on Sunday or Monday. On Ben Higgins’ season of The Bachelor, the overnight dates were filmed every other day, so it’s likely that Nick will get a break between dates — or at least enough time to freshen up after a little Fantasy Suite action.
“Only a couple more weeks left of filming, which is always fascinating to me. It takes essentially four weeks (40 days this time around) to go from 30 girls down to four, then takes about three weeks to go from four down to one.”
Steve admits that there are “a ton of blanks” when it comes to providing spoilers for Nick Viall’s season of the Bachelor, so die-hard fans may be a wee bit disappointed that only two of the final four girls have been revealed — Rachel Lindsay and Raven Gates.
However, Steve did reveal a tidbit of information that should get fans buzzing while they wait for the Bachelor to begin on January 2, 2017.
“Ahhhhh, they did it again.” Reality Steve tweeted on Saturday. “Another stupid storyline…”

What does the tweet mean? Fans will find out soon enough as the spoilers for the rest of the season leak out, but there’s a possibility that the repeat of “stupid storyline” means Nick has fallen for more than one of the three girls.
Will we see a repeat of Ben Higgins’ season and watch Nick tell more than one girl he is in love with them? Or is a “stupid storyline” one that includes a girl who reveals she is still in love with her ex-boyfriend?
Until the 21st season of ABC’s The Bachelor gets underway in January, there will be a lot of guessing going on about who Nick hooks up with in the Fantasy Suite, who he sends home after the overnight dates, and who makes it to the final two.
And the biggest question of all — will Nick propose to his final pick or remain single?
Watch The Bachelor Season 21 premiere at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
