In a statement, Stanger said, “I get a partner with great understanding of relationships, the following of Bachlor Nation and well… he’s easy on the eyes. Quite the package.”

The series will follow Stanger as she helps singles find love while teaching them “the real tools and rules to become the most eligible versions of themselves.”

Per the official logline, “But this time, Patti has a new partner – ‘The Bachelor’ alum Nick Viall is joining her to tackle some of her most challenging clients yet. No case is off limits or too difficult for Patti and Nick to crack. Each episode will feature two clients desperate to find love, with Patti and Nick pushing them to face their fears, identify their emotional core, and in the end, emerge ready to find the one. These are all real dates, real people, real matches… and real love!
