This Halloween weekend just got a little hotter. Nick Viall’s first Bachelor season 21 promo debuted on Friday, October 28 — and it’s a treat.
In the chilling clip, obtained by E! News, the hunky reality star, 36, looks sexier than ever in a suit as he hands out roses and flashes his pearly whites.
“The next scream you hear may be your own,” a voice says in the video over sounds of thunder and werewolves howling, which then transitions into the sound of women screaming. “Happy Halloween!”
A source previously told Us Weekly that the two-time Bachelorette runner-up — who competed for both Andi Dorfman and Kaitlyn Bristowe’s hearts on seasons 10 and 11 of the hit reality series — has been successful in his latest search for love.
"The season is going very, very well," an insider told Us. "Like, one of the best seasons ever. Nick is finding love — for real.”
Though he feels great about finding The One, he’s hit at least one bump along the way. As Us Weekly exclusively reported on October 11, the Bachelor in Paradise alum knew one of the contestants prior to filming for The Bachelor began.
"During the first day of taping, all of the girls came out, and he actually had slept with one of them at a wedding and never called her again," the insider told Us.
The source added that, despite their past, the two did not acknowledge their sexual encounter when they reunited on set of the dating competition.
A second insider told Us that Viall explained to producers that he "didn't want any girls on the show that he already knew or had a date with" because he thought "it was a waste of a person being there."
Viall has already filmed a number of dates with his potential fiancées. Some of the romantic excursions include a Ferris wheel ride and a dancing lesson at a recent Backstreet Boys concert in Los Angeles, where the ladies had to learn choreography to the boy band’s iconic tunes “Everybody (Backstreet’s Back)” and “I Want It That Way.”
"Nick is a great guy," BSB member AJ McLean exclusively told Us at the time. "I felt really bad for the girls,, because we only gave them 30 minutes to learn that whole dance routine, and the fear of God came over all of those girls' faces. They were such, such, such troupers. I wish them all the best of luck, and I do hope Nick does finally find that special someone."
The Bachelor returns to ABC in January 2017.
