What is The Bachelor about?

The Bachelor series

The Bachelor is a dating reality TV series where a single eligible Bachelor dates and chooses from a pool of women to be his wife. Contestants are eliminated from the show every week until the season finale, when the Bachelor declares his love for the finalist and then proposes to her. The show’s immense success has resulted in several spin-offs, including The Bachelorette and Bachelor in Paradise.

The new season’s Bachelor is none other than Zach Shallcross, who was the runner-up choice of Rachel Recchia in The Bachelorette Season 19. Meanwhile, ESPN analyst and Bachelor alumnus Jesse Palmer will return as the show’s host.

Amazon Prime Video has the widest Bachelor selection by far, with seasons 13 through 26 available for purchase either by episode or by season.

Hulu has a more modest selection, with seasons 14, 15, 16, 20, 22, and 23 available on the streaming platform.

HBO Max features three recent Bachelor seasons—season 21 (Nick Viall), season 24 (Peter Weber), and season 25 (Matt James). You can also catch international spin-offs of the flagship series, from Australia to Canada!

And last but not least, Tubi has just one season of The Bachelor, but it’s a mighty exciting one: Season 22 starring Arie Luyendyk Jr. Best of all, it’s free to watch!
