Is Nick Viall taking a page out of the Chris Soules playbook for his upcoming season of “The Bachelor“? If you were to look at the picture above, you would probably start to think that.
Based on the timing of this post, which came via show creator Mike Fleiss in between a series of his comments on the recent Trump Tapes, it seems like Nick is probably still in his home state of Wisconsin. We know based on a listing that a concert was filmed there for the show, and they’re probably getting a lot of mileage out of him revisiting his roots. Visiting hometowns is something that the show has done a good bit of over the past few years, whether it be Chris in Arlington or Ben Higgins in Warsaw. Sometimes, it can create interesting dates since it allows some of the women to understand further the culture that their possible future fiance comes from.
At this point in the show, we also imagine that some of the feelings are starting to turn serious for the ladies, since we’re at least a few episodes in and the typical “Bachelor” process is starting to settle in. Remember, these people have no phones, no internet, and no real connection to the outside world during production. Therefore, they are in a position where much of their lives revolve around Nick, talking about Nick, and wanting to spend time with him.
Eventually, we presume that in the weeks to come, the show will go international, and following that we’ll have the typical hometown dates, overnight dates, and the like.
The new season of “The Bachelor” is premiering at some point in early January, as per usual. Be on the lookout for further news as we get closer to that date! (Photo: ABC.)
