Twenty years. Twenty-six seasons. Two spin-offs. Millions have been mesmerized by “The Bachelor.” At first glance, the reality television franchise is an experiment in love and matchmaking in the modern era.

But for the most part, the love doesn’t last.…
“The Bachelor” and “The Bachelorette” have a mere 16% and 33% success rate, respectively. Yet no matter the gimmicks, countless crises or the amount of love-bombing and trauma dumping the franchise invokes, fans are still watching.…
The series has spawned a cult-ish online community referred to as #BachelorNation which thrives off the series’ organized chaos and drama.

The question that remains is whether this experiment is successful and why America continues to eat it up.…

The next star of #TheBachelor might be an unfamiliar face — but not for long. Insiders say ABC has picked its next star from Michelle Young's upcoming season of #TheBachelorette.
The new leading man for Season 26 of the hit dating show is Clayton Echard, according to sources. ABC and Warner Bros. TV declined to comment.
If Echard’s name doesn’t ring a bell, it’s because Bachelor Nation hasn’t met him yet. Echard will be introduced to America as a suitor on the upcoming season of #TheBachelorette, which premieres next month, and will star fan-favorite Michelle Young.

#TheBachelorFinale was riveting. @EmmanuelAcho killed it. He guided #BatchelorNation through a straightforward, honest, whiteness-decentered, brave conversation on Black maleness in US. #MattJames @mattjames919 was clear. He and his future children need a woman who gets it. 1/
It makes sense that the first time #TheBachelor is a Black man the season ends with a painful conversation about race. The political construct of #race in the US was built in 1662 to answer the question of interracial children and marriage in VA and MD, respectively. 2/
In VA House of Burgess wanted to solve the riddle: What is status of mixed race children (products of white masters raping enslaved women).

MD Legislature wanted to stop flood of white immigrant women from falling in love and marrying enslaved African men...

Bachelor Nation has a race problem, according to four former #TheBachelor contestants who spoke to @stephemcneal.

They say the franchise didn’t support them when they heard insensitive comments from fellow contestants and received racist abuse from fans:…
White contestants have been able to cause drama, pick fights and emerge with a healthy Instagram following.

Black contestants said they were subject to harassment and abuse from fans simply for being Black on a show that, they feel, was never built to support them.
“It speaks to who America is in probably one of the realest ways ever,” said Jubilee Sharpe, who appeared on the show’s 20th season. “But people don't realize it.”

I can barely get through this interview for the rage that Chris Harrison has invoked. The way he keeps asserting that things done in the past are seen as bad NOW as if they weren't terrible back then... No. People just weren't being held accountable for shit back then.
This is more than "just a party." It's a celebration incorporating the traditions of the antebellum south & romanticizing confederate imagery. & it's the latest in a LONG LINE of #TheBachelor contestants being exposed as bigots. Chris Harrison defending this BS isn't shocking.
The audacity to talk to Rachel Lindsay as if the two are in some sort of cahoots? As if she hasn't been calling this shit out since she was handed that Bachelorette rose? UNbelievable.

Oh look, our favorite militant clinic-swarmers have a new weapon in their war on pregnant people: a face full of coronavirus! If you’re not familiar with Red Rose Rescue, read on. /1…
RRR is a bunch of Franciscan zealots who weaponize flowers. Their turn-ons are trespassing, shoving roses into a stranger’s personal space, and getting dragged off in cuffs. It’s like a shitty S&M version of #TheBachelor with no safe word. /2…
What’s scarier than a rose? Most things, honestly. But especially a cloud of spittle from a pest who thinks Jesus is his N95 mask. GUYS THE PANDEMIC DOESN’T DISAPPEAR JUST BECAUSE YOU GOT BORED OF NOT INVADING CLINICS. /3 Image

Okay #BachelorNation. My name is Emily Joy, I'm a lesbian with an unhealthy obsession with this show, I have a degree in philosophical theology & apologetics from Moody Bible Institute, and if you're wondering what the fuck is going on I'm here to break it down. #TheBachelorette
In last night's episode @AlabamaHannah referenced the biblical story of the woman caught in adultery & the words of Jesus when he said, "let he who is without sin cast the first stone." The story she's referring to can be found here in the gospel of John:…
Now a couple interesting things to note: 1) unlike a lot of other Jesus stories, this one is found *only* in the gospel of John & not the others, and 2) there is good scholarly consensus that this bit of John was added later and was not a part of the original text of the gospel.
