Sexy Saint Nick?! Thanks to The Bachelor, it's now a thing.

Ahead of its season premiere on Monday, Jan. 2, ABC has released holiday-themed promos for Nick Vialls highly anticipated turn as the Bachelor, and E! News has your exclusive first look at the sexy teaser.

"That Christmas when Saint Nick himself if the gift you can't wait to unwrap," the voice-over says, before we're treated to gratuitous shower shots of the new Bach. Happy holidays, indeed!

But wait, there's more!

The Bachelor, Nick Viall

E! News has even more Bachelor-themed Christmas goodies for you, so check back Monday and Tuesday for two new holiday-themed promos. 

In addition to washboard abs, the 35-year-old Nick brings a ton of history to The Bachelor, given his two stints on The Bachelorette, making it to the finale of Andi Dorfman and Kaitlyn Bristowe's seasons. But it was his appearance on the third season of Bachelor in Paradise this summer that turned him into a fan-favorite for viewers. 

"We started seeing people say, 'I can't believe this, God help me, I like Nick,' when Bachelor in Paradise started airing," ABC exec Robert Mills said. "Certainly someone who had gone on Bachelorette twice, was the runner-up and then had gone on Bachelor in Paradise, that just didn't seem like something that was even in the realm of comprehension. But there was a lot of, 'I really like him, and I can't believe I'm saying this.'"

Host Chris Harrison said, "Look, the good news is it's worked for him. He has fallen in love on this show and he has sincerely tried to make it work. Unfortunately, he's just come up a little bit short each time. He's done his part, he will give himself to this process."

The Bachelor premieres Monday, Jan. 2 at 8 p.m. on ABC.
