If Prince Farming and his 30 bachelorettes are not enough reasons for you to watch The Bachelor season 19, then perhaps Jimmy Kimmel will change your mind. The late night talk show host will serve as guest host in the third episode of the upcoming season of the ABC reality dating series.

According to the network’s press release, Kimmel will surprise Bachelor star Chris Soules “by taking over the show. Jimmy plans a date, brings a greased pig and even winds up in a hot tub.”

In an interview with Eonline.com, Soules described Kimmel’s episode as “the best and most entertainment week for me.”
