It looks like Nick Viall will finally find love in 2017. Viall is the star of Season Season 21 of the ABC dating reality show, and on Thursday, photos emerged of him on a one-on-one date with a mystery woman.

According to TMZ, the woman in the picture is named Danielle and their date night was in an entertainment area called Balboa Fun Zone in Newport Beach, CA. They arrived by boat and rode a Ferris wheel before sitting down for a candlelit dinner. Reportedly production hired three off-duty police officers for about $1,500 to keep fans at bay.

It is not immediately known if Viall gave out a rose at the end of the date. Season 21 of The Bachelor is an important one for Viall as this will be fourth time on the dating reality show. He first appeared on Season 10 of The Bachelorette featuring Andi Dorfman, and then was a contestant on Kaitlyn Bristowe's season as well. He also took part in Season 3 of Bachelor in Paradise, but did not find love there as well.

Appearing on the dating reality show is going to be a taxing experience that will be worth the effort, The Bachelor alums Ben Higgins and Lauren Bushnell revealed in a promo for their reality show Ben & Lauren: Happily Ever After?

"Be honest, be open, be ready for one of the most exciting but also most emotionally taxing experiences of your life," Ben says. "Stay true to yourself, and if you do that, at the end of this, no matter what happens, it'll be worth it."

Filming for Season 21 of The Bachelor commenced on September 24. The show will air in early 2017.
