“The Golden Bachelor showcases a whole new kind of love story — one for the golden years,” ABC announced on Tuesday.
“The women arriving at the mansion have a lifetime of experience, living through love, loss and laughter, hoping for a spark that ignites a future full of endless possibilities. In the end, will our Golden man turn the page to start a new chapter with the woman of his dreams?” the network teased.
The new concept had been rumoured by members of Bachelor Nation after fans noticed a casting call for “seniors looking for love.”
According to a YouGov poll, over half of The Bachelor viewers are over 45. It appears the franchise has finally realized the need for relatable storylines that explore looking for love later in life.
As news of The Golden Bachelor spread, fans took to Twitter to express their excitement about this fresh and inclusive approach to the beloved show.
Yayyy can’t wait

I asked Martha Stewart if she ever go on ‘Golden Bachelor,’ the upcoming ‘Bachelor’ spin-off for seniors. She laughed, “If I get to see the men first.”#justforvariety https://t.co/9IYpZVHyJf
