This might be Nick Viall’s fourth run on national TV, but he’s closer than ever to finding love.
As filming for the Bachelor heads into its final days, is Viall already eying a ring? Plus, here’s everything we know about his final hometown dates.
Hollywood Take reports that Viall isn’t settling for anything less than an engagement.
“I’m hopeful I’ll find someone to spend the rest of my life with,” Viall admitted. “I couldn’t be more excited to find that amazing connection.”
There’s no telling how far each contestant will make it, though we do know that Rachel Lindsay snagged Viall’s first impression rose. This is certainly a good start for the Dallas lawyer, though it does not guarantee that she made it to the hometown dates. Still, getting the first impression rose is a pretty good indication that Lindsay will make it far this season.
As previously reported by Inquisitr, Viall is getting ready to film the hometown dates, which means he is already down to his final four choices.
Viall started the season with 30 single women in Los Angeles and has been filming all over the world these past few months. Most recently, Viall and his last six suitors stopped by the Bahamas for a little fun in the sun before heading back to the states. It sounds like Lindsay is one of the girls who made it to the hometown dates, but the other three slots are a complete mystery.
The only thing we know is that Viall has an interesting past with one of his suitors, Elizabeth Sandoz, who hooked up with Viall at Jade Tolbert’s wedding this year. The two had a one night stand and never talked to each other afterward.
This doesn’t bode well for Sandoz, who was reportedly sent home after the second ceremony because Viall didn’t want to date anyone with previous ties.
While the details about Viall’s run have been slim, Bustle is reporting that producers just released a promo teaser for the new season. The trailer is only 10 seconds in length but packs plenty of clues about what’s to come next year.
The clip begins by featuring a first look at Viall as The Bachelor.
The software salesman is shown standing before his suitors with a rose in hand and looks perfectly comfortable at center stage. The ladies then learn that Viall has picked one of them to go on a carnival-themed date.
The trailer stops short of revealing anything more about the new season, but it does confirm that Viall was the right pick for the job.
Not only does Viall look the part, but he also has a heartbreaking backstory to boot.
Furthermore, Blasting News is reporting that Viall has wanted to star on The Bachelor for a long time. Apparently, Viall is all about entertaining fans and even took acting lessons to prepare himself for the role.
While this might not set him up for finding true love this season, it definitely means that fans are in for an interesting run this time around. This could also be one reason why Viall gave Lindsay his first rose, though it is entirely possible that they really hit it off.
Meanwhile, Hollywood Life just released a new video that shows Viall’s final pick might be a mystery brunette.
Cameras were rolling when Viall took the unknown suitor out for a date in his hometown of Waukesha, Wisconsin. The identity of the woman is unknown though it is clear that she made it Viall’s final four picks. The two were spotted eating dinner together and later engaged in some PDA. They ate sandwiches and cookies at Rochester Deli before heading out on the town and holding hands.
Is this the girl who will win Viall’s final rose?
At this point, it’s anyone’s guess who will make it to the hometown dates.
While fans eagerly wait for the premiere of The Bachelor, it is good to see that Viall is handling the lead role well and isn’t having any troubles narrowing down his pick. The only question remaining is whether or not Viall falls in love with one of his final four suitors enough to tie the knot.
Unfortunately, fans will have to tune in to find out if Viall finally gets engaged or leaves the show empty handed once again. This is the fourth time Viall has tried his hand in the world of reality dating.
He came in second twice on The Bachelorette and almost found love in Season 3 of Bachelor in Paradise.
However, Viall ended his short romance with Jen Saviano when he found out that ABC wanted him to star in the new season of The Bachelor.
Fans can watch Viall find love once and for all when Season 21 of The Bachelor airs January 2 on ABC.
