The late-night show host is going to host a primetime special dedicated to Season 21 of the long-running reality series, reports Variety. Called "Jimmy Kimmel Live: Here for the Right Reasons," the special will air immediately following the new season's premiere. ABC hasn't revealed what we should expect, but Variety sources say there will be reactions to the first episode, including Kimmel's predictions on who is poised to make the final four as well as be the ultimate winner.
It also seems possible that the Bachelor himself, Nick Viall, may appear. Kimmel makes no secret of the fact that he's a fan of the show and has been known to bring members of Bachelor Nation on to "Jimmy Kimmel Live." That is on top of appearing on "The Bachelor" to talk roses and dole out advice.
Clearly, Kimmel is hosting the special for the right reasons. We'll get to see how it goes on ABC on Jan. 2 at 10 p.m. ET/PT, and then again at 11:35 p.m.
