We are thrilled to announce Life & Style’s guest blogger for Peter Weber‘s season of The Bachelor: Jordan Kimball! Jordan rose to fame as the gold speedo-clad “pensive gentleman” on Becca Kufrin‘s season of The Bachelorette, and continued to capture fans’ hearts on seasons 5 and 6 of Bachelor in Paradise.

After running into a few roadblocks in his quest for love on reality TV, Jordan finally found a beautiful new girlfriend, Christina Creedon, to enjoy life with. Now that he’s finally settled down, he’s even more of an expert on what to do — and what not to do — while looking for The One in Bachelor Nation. Each week, he’ll be spilling his (very) honest thoughts and opinions on Peter, his contestants, and all of the drama that goes down in season 24 exclusively here at Life & Style! Check out his first thoughts on the upcoming season, below: 

Who’s ready for Pete’s season?! From the TV pilot (no pun intended) it looks romantic and eventful, with promising limo entrances, house drama and some serious emotional displays. The cast photos really showcase the Bachelor’s ladies in a way that we’ve never seen before. The seatbelt signs are on, so buckle up, Bachelor Nation!

All in all, this upcoming season seems to have a sense of genuine feeling and intent. I can’t wait to tune in and watch on with my wine! Fun fact: I typically only drink Sauvy B for white and Pinot Noir for red wine. What will you guys be drinking? And, more importantly, who are you watching with? We’re less than a week away!

The three-hour Bachelor premiere airs on ABC on Monday, January 6 at 8 p.m. You can learn all about Pete here, get to know his gorgeous contestants here, and read about Pete’s dramatic injury here. Check back weekly for all of Jordan Kimball’s Bachelor guest blogs, beginning after the premiere on January 6.
