Higgins, 27, certainly had a busy start to the new year in the lead-up to the January 4 premiere of The Bachelor. In a fitting nod to the hit ABC reality dating show, he attended the annual Rose Parade in Pasadena, California, on Friday, January 1.

A teaser for the new season of The Bachelor features Higgins shirtless, kissing the numerous bachelorettes and even crying at one point.

The reality hunk previously told Us Weekly that he isn't "extremely comfortable with the attention," but he thinks that being the season 20 Bachelor is "a great opportunity."

As Us previously revealed, a number of contestants this season, including Becca Tilley, are former contestants and members of the ever-growing Bachelor Nation.

Season 20 of The Bachelor premieres on ABC on Monday, January 4, at 8 p.m. EST.
