The Bachelor has returned for its 21st season. On Monday night, Bachelor superfan Jimmy Kimmel dedicated his show to the reality classic’s return, sitting down with now fourth-time Bachelor/ette regular Nick Viall to get all the insider information on his search for love.
Immediately, Kimmel tried to squeeze spoilers out of Viall, promptly asking if he’d kissed anyone on New Year’s Eve. “My mom,” replied the 36-year-old, before admitting he didn’t have any smooching to confess. The negative response didn’t deter Kimmel. The late-night host pressed on: “Is it safe to say you are not single now?” But Viall kept his lips sealed, which was good practice for what came afterwards. Next, Kimmel staged a perfectly awkward reunion with the former Bachelorette contestant’s exes, Andi Dorfman and Kaitlyn Bristowe.
Kimmel innocently asked if the three had seen each other since appearing on the show together.
“We’ve run into each other. We’re friends,” Viall said. “I mean, this is so awkward,” Dorfman quickly replied.
Finally, Kimmel presented Viall with his predictions for the final four. The late-night host nominated four women: Rachel, an attorney from Dallas who won the night’s first impression rose; Danielle L., a nail salon owner; Corinne, who kissed Nick on the first night; and Vanessa, a special needs teacher from Montreal, Canada. Kimmel’s picks differed a little from the predictions that Bachelor fan Jennifer Aniston had made in the lead-up to the season, though.
Nick smiled at the end of the segment, which could mean Kimmel’s predictions were on the right track. But according to former The Soup host Joel McHale, who was also a guest on Kimmel’s Monday night show, Nick is constantly smiling, so can we really take that smile as a sign? Guess we’ll just have to wait and see.
