'The Bachelor' 2017 cast photos and bios released; meet Nick Viall's season 21 contestants

The Bachelor premieres in a month, and to celebrate, ABC has released the season 21 cast photos. Thirty women will be competing for Nick Viall's heart come January, and we've got our first look at them.

This is Nick's fourth shot at trying to find love on the reality show franchise. He made his first appearance while on Andi Dorfman's season of The Bachelorette and came in second place. He later joined the cast of Kaitlyn Bristowe's season of The Bachelorette, and once again made it to the finale before getting dumped. He tried to pursue a relationship in season three of Bachelor in Paradise, and even formed a connection with fellow cast member Jennifer Saviano. However, love was not in the cards for the duo. They split during the emotional season finale, which aired in September. 

Can the 36-year-old Milwaukee native meet his soulmate on the new season of The Bachelor? Fans will just have to watch his journey when the 2017 installment premieres on Monday, Jan. 2 at 8 p.m. Eastern.
