On Monday, January 29 at 8 p.m. EST, millions of loyal viewers will gather around their televisions—wine and popcorn in hand—to watch intently as Arie Luyendyk Jr. continues his journey for love in Fort Lauderdale, Fl. Luyendyk, a former Formula 1 racecar driver, is this year’s man of the hour on ABC’s hit series “The Bachelor.” With 13 women still vying for his affection, the competition is sure to heat up in the “Yachting Capital of the World.” As episode 5 unfolds in the 22nd season of the show, Arie will be forced to share his spotlight with yet another beauty—a 94 ft. Ferretti Custom Line Yacht named Paradise.

While we can all safely agree that the show is not for everyone (especially if you happen to fall into the male-demographic), almost once a season ABC producers ship their suitor out to sea on a luxury yacht that is sure to capture anyone’s attention. This year, that lucky yacht is Paradise. Listed for charter at a mere $42K a week, Paradise is equipped with 4 guest cabins to hold up to 8 guests. Let’s not forget that charter guests are able to enjoy all the toys and amenities found onboard, including a Williams jet tender, a large floating island, snorkel gear, swim noodles, footballs, Frisbees, water guns, and of course, a new Sea Doo Spark—which we’ll see Arie take full advantage of during his one-on-one date airing Monday night.

Since the show was filmed months prior, it’s too late to fangirl over the cast and crew as they make their rounds throughout Fort Lauderdale; Paradise, on the other hand, is happy to call South Florida her home. Without further ado, here’s a special look inside Arie’s “love boat”…

There will be champagne, there will be romance, and there will be roses... Will Arie decide to hand out his rose on his one-on-one date aboard Paradise? Or, will he have to sail off into the sunset alone?

The bow of Paradise becomes the stage for one of Monday's nights most iconic moments as Arie and his lucky lady reenact what resembles a close rendition of Titanic's "I'm Flying" scene.

Is any episode of "The Bachelor" complete without a hot tub scene? Definitely not—and Paradise has got that covered.

While Arie won't be navigating this yacht on his own, he sure is doing his best to navigate his way through his journey of love.

Sadly, Arie's one-on-one in Fort Lauderdale won't end with an overnight date in Paradise's spacious master stateroom...

Tune in to ABC on Monday night at 8 p.m. EST on January 29 to catch Paradise in action on the newest episode of "The Bachelor."
