Get ready to judge Nick Viall's skills as the new 'Bachelor' -- we got the first photos and videos of him on a one-on-one date, and it looks like he just might avoid becoming a 4 time loser.

We got Nick in action with a blonde named Danielle. He's shooting the 21st season of the show right now, and this date went down Monday night in an entertainment area called Balboa Fun Zone in Newport Beach, CA.

The couple made a flashy arrival by boat with their names in lights. After that low-key entrance they rode a Ferris wheel, then sat down for a candlelit dinner. To make things really romantic, production hired 3 off-duty cops -- for about $1,500 -- to keep away curious fans.

Unclear if Danielle scored a rose or if Nick simply scored ... but dude needs a slump buster. He already struck out twice on "The Bachelorette" and once on "Bachelor in Paradise."
