Perhaps the fourth time really is a charm! Nick Viall is taking the reins as The Bachelor‘s season 21 star in his return to the ABC dating franchise, and multiple sources confirm exclusively to Us Weekly that his latest shot at love is, so far, a successful one.
“The season is going very, very well,” an insider tells Us. “Like, one of the best seasons ever. Nick is finding love — for real.”
Another source concurs to Us that Viall’s stint is going swimmingly. “Filming will wrap up in November,” the source points out.
The second insider adds that the lone drama this season has involved the contestant who Viall had previously slept with. As Us exclusively reported last month, the two-time Bachelorette runner-up met his women on the first day of filming for season 21, where he realized that one of them was someone he had hooked up with at a wedding and hadn’t contacted again.
The 36-year-old Milwaukee native was a surprise pick to star on The Bachelor, as Bachelorette season 12 standout Luke Pell was widely viewed as the front-runner for the coveted gig. Viall, who dated Jen Saviano on Bachelor in Paradise season 3, was the Bachelorette season 10 runner-up, where he lost Andi Dorfman‘s final rose to Josh Murray. Last year, Viall came in second behind Shawn Booth for Kaitlyn Bristowe‘s love on The Bachelorette season 11.
Tell Us: Will Nick Viall finally find his perfect match?
The Bachelor returns to ABC in January 2017.
