The Bachelor is an American dating reality television show. The show started in March 2002 and is still existent to this day. It is aired on ABC network and the show is hosted by Chris Harrison. Since the show's debut, there have been several renditions of the show such as The Bachelorette, Bachelor Pad, Bachelor in Paradise, etc. The Bachelor is created and produced by Mike Fleiss and directed by Kevin Fuchs.

The show’s plot is based on one selected bachelor or bachelorette for each season. The show starts with around 25 selected candidates for the Bachelor/Bachelorette to pick from. As the show continues, candidates are eliminated reach round through the use of roses.

Candidates who do not receive the rose cannot continue onto the next rounds. The final rose is given at the end of the series to the person whom that Bachelor/Bachelorette chooses to propose to. During each season, viewers witness extravagant dating trips, fun adventures, group dates, cocktail parties, hometown visits (where the Bachelor and/or Bachelorette have their selected final four meet his/her parents and family and vise versa) and a bunch of drama in between.

So far there have been 22 seasons of The Bachelor and the current season is, The Bachelorette, with Rachel Lindsay. Rachel is the first black Bachelorette chosen. She is an attorney from Dallas, Texas who fought for Nick Viall’s heart on season 21 of The Bachelor; however, Nick picked Vanessa Grimaldi instead. Before Season 21 with Nick Viall, Season 20 was with the Bachelor, Ben Higgins. Ben Higgins, a software salesman, from Warsaw, Indiana fell in love with Lauren Bushnell. Unfortunately, Ben and Lauren have called off their wedding plans and have broken up.

As we have seen with the past seasons, there are a lot of couples that stay together and A LOT that do not. Candidates on each show are either chosen as the next bachelor/ bachelorette or invited back to The Bachelor Pad or Bachelor in Paradise.

The Bachelor in Paradise is elimination-style dating competition where contestants who have not been chosen in the past are invited to come back and find love. All the men and women chosen for this show have equal opportunity to find love and give one another roses. If you are not chosen, you are asked to leave the island immediately. Just like the Bachelor and Bachelorette, there is the final episode dedicated to engagement. There can be multiple proposals at the end of the season which we have seen in the past.

It will be interesting to find out who Rachel Lindsay ends up choosing as her beau during the final rose ceremony. Read Blasting News to find the latest Bachelor news!
