The Bachelor 2017 With Nick Viall Gets Premiere Date

Nick Viall is ready for love! One of the most controversial personalities in the history of The Bachelor franchise finally has a premiere date set for his season as the lead star looking for love.

The Bachelor 2017 will premiere on Monday, Jan. 2, so it should be able to help out with any lingering effects of the New Year’s hangover. I know good TV can help raise me from the dead sometimes, and from all appearances, the 21st season of The Bachelor is on track to becoming the craziest yet, due in large part to just what a divisive personality Nick has been in the Bachelor Nation.

“[Nick is] back stronger than ever, ready and eager to begin his search for true love,” ABC announced in their press release. “After all these years, and all the heartbreak, it’s finally Nick’s turn to hand out the roses.”

Nick himself posted about the announcement on Instagram: “Still on my journey, but breaking my silence to share when you all can see it for yourselves!!!” Viall shared. “Get ready… it all starts January 2nd!! #thebachelor #thebachelorabc #january2 @bachelorabc”

I’m definitely looking forward to this. I know Nick causes a lot of mixed opinions online, but I’m a fan. He may be a bit of a player, but he reads as sincere to me, for the most part. At least, he seems more sincere than a lot of the people who take the lead on The Bachelor. So I’m all-in on this season. Bring on January 2nd!

But what do you think? Are you looking forward to The Bachelor 2017? Or are you skipping this season altogether? Sound off in the comments!
