Show Summary

The Bachelor is an original one hour prime-time reality television series that gives one man and 25 women the unique opportunity to find true love in a most exciting and adventurous way. The Bachelor will get to know the 25 women in a series of fun, exciting and exotic dates that will elicit real and raw emotions. Along the way he must follow a gradual process of elimination, as his initial 25 bachelorettes are narrowed down week by week by presenting them with a single, red rose. In the end, he will ultimately decide on the one woman who captures his heart. However, at any point along the way, should a woman decide that she is no longer interested in The Bachelor, she may reject his invitation to continue dating. If the women decide to stay, some lucky women will meet his family, and he will visit their hometowns for a slice of their life in an effort to determine the woman with whom he is most compatible. The Bachelor provides an in-depth, behind-the-scenes glimpse into the lives of each participant involved in this unique dating process. At the end of the journey, this gentleman will have had an unforgettable experience, made new friendships and quite possibly found true love. But the big question is: After all of this, if he pops the question, will she accept?moreless

      What is the attraction to this bachelor?$ He's like a robot .Strange.

      Hey Girls ..... be careful what you wish for.
    • Poor Ben!

      Unbelievable that these women are more concerned about their time with Ben than his sharing of his loss this evening. AND they are so judgmental of Jubilee when she is giving him a massage because of his situation. Poor Ben!! I wish him hope he has his head on straight. am ready to stop watching when these women are only concerned about themselves. Yucko

    • Please ditch the villians!

      I really really hate the fact that they feature an obligatory villian every season. It was an interesting twist the first time (Trish)-- but that should have been the only time, and yet they do this every season. It is boring, it is contrived, and it destroys the show's integrity, causing it to appear suspiciously FAKE. Do you recall how they kept mentioning Tierra's EYEBROW? I could not believe they devoted a split-second of airtime to such nonsense! Please spare us the villainous family members also( Desiree's brother). Charlie O'Connell was a terrible Bachelor. I wish I had kept count of how many times he said the phrase "having fun" every episode! He acted goofy, silly, immature-- very very unappealing. The venues he chose for dates were so boring-- like forays into neighborhood bars. He also got vulgar talking about bodily functions. Some seasons are much better than others, depending largely on the charisma of the Bachelor at the time.moreless
    • Pet Peeve

      After watching The Bachelor/Bachelorette over the years, I simply must express my disgust with a typical behavior which has become so noticeable this season that I can no longer "let it go".

      When a person cries and wipes her nose with her bare hand, it is disgusting enough without then wiping her hand through her hair or wiping their tears from their eyes with nasty hands.

      What is wrong with these young women that they have such habits?

      Surely, if these people can afford the cost of the gowns, accessories an other expenses, they could afford a box of tissues to have handy!

      It's terrible hygiene. This pet peeve is secondary to the "slobber swapping" that goes on. Good heavens! Have these women NO PRIDE at all? Does anyone think this is acceptable? Could someone PLEASE clean up this program and do some teaching about health habits for the cast?moreless
