Jimmy Kimmel is going places. After the comedian announced that he will be hosting the Oscars in 2017, ABC publicized that the 49-year-old star will host a segment on “The Bachelor” after the Season 21 premiere of the reality TV series.

Titled “Jimmy Kimmel Live: Here For The Right Reasons,” Kimmel will host the primetime special after the Season 21 premiere of “The Bachelor,” according to a press release issued by ABC. Nick Viall will choose one out of 30 women who are competing for his affections on Monday, Jan. 2 at 8 p.m. EST. Then, at 10 p.m. the same day (Jan. 2), Kimmel will head the “Bachelor”-themed primetime special.

Viall participated in seasons 10 and 11 on “The Bachelorette” where he contended for the hearts of Andi Dorfman and Kaitlyn Bristowe.

The 36-year-old sales account executive spoke to People about his upcoming stint on the ABC reality show. “As the Bachelor, all eyes are on you,” he confessed. “It’s certainly nerve-racking. The process was as hard as I thought it would be -- a lot of highs and lows.”

Viall admitted to developing strong feelings for multiple women, “Early on with so many women, you obviously don’t know a lot of things about them but talking to all of them and wanting to make it meaningful to all of them is very physically taxing,” he said. “And then as time goes on, it becomes more emotionally taxing and less physically taxing. And you get to know these women, there’s a level of respect. You’re asking them to do things they’ve never been able to do and to face stressful situations and their fears.”

Viall also said that he is ready to get married. Will he find his lady love? Find out by tuning in to “The Bachelor” on Mondays at 8 p.m. EST on ABC.
