The sneak peek for the teaching tennis professional's journey aired during the Bachelor in Paradise finale on Dec. 7. And not only did host Jesse Palmer call Joey's search for love the "most romantic season in Bachelor history," but he also described it as an "unbelievable, worldwide adventure."
The teaser shows Joey and the ladies traveling from the mountains to the beaches as he hopes to find the one. As for what the reality star is looking for in a partner?
"What I'm looking for is something so real that anyone can feel it, they can see it," he says in the clip, "and it gets me excited to think about it."
And while Jesse says "there will be love" and "there will be laughter" this season, he also notes "there will be drama." At one point, Joey says "someone is lying" to him and that he doesn't know who to believe. At another, one of the contestants tells Joey she isn't sure "how much longer she can do this" and appears to leave the show. The trailer also shows tense moments between the contestants and plenty of tears.
"With Charity, I tried to get down on one knee, and I was stopped," Joey recalled. "So my biggest fear is the one walking out. I'm afraid of someone not accepting me for me."
And it looks like his finale isn't totally rosy. In fact, Jesse says "what happens in the end is an unprecedented shocking first in Bachelor history." Even Joey seemed surprised.
"That was crazy," he says after fans see him wiping away tears. "I didn't expect that at all. I can't think that's happened before. I don't even know what to say. I know I gave as much as I could."
While viewers will have to wait and see what exactly goes down, they won't have to hold on for too much longer. Joey's season of The Bachelor premieres Jan. 22 on ABC.
