Welcome, rose lovers.
It’s that time for us to embark on a journey of love, lust, champagne once again.
Chris Soules welcomes us all to Season 19 of The Bachelor. A quick refresher: Chris is 33 and best known for being on the last season of The Bachelorette. He’s a farmer in the small town of Arlington, Iowa. Chris begins the season by saying “Love is a lot like farming: You plant a seed, you hope it grows, sometimes the weather isn’t always on your side but with a little bit of luck, something beautiful can come from it.”
In an introduction to Chris’ life, we watch him fish with his father, enjoy a big family dinner, and head down to the local bar. Chris continues on to working out and casually getting in a few squats before he hops on his motorcycle to leave for The Bachelor Mansion. He makes it a point to make it know he’s is not happy about leaving his farm but he’s “ready to find love”. And step one of finding love involves figuring out what Los Angeles has to offer.
The Ladies this season are Brit, Whitney, Kelsey, Megan, Ashley, Trina, Reegan, Tara, Amber, Nikki, Amanda, Jillian, Mackenzie, Ashley, Kaitlyn, Samantha, Michelle, Becca, Tandra, Alissa, Jordan, Nicole, Brittany, Carly, Tracy, Bo, Kimberly, Cara, and Jade.
This season of The Bachelor starts off very romantic and promising! The beginnings of the weekly butterflies and hope! Tune in every Monday at 8 pm on ABC!
Competition shows have had their run of popularity throughout the early 2000s. Prominent artists like One Direction, Fifth Harmony, and even Kelly Clarkson gained fame from appearing on shows like American Idol and X-Factor. However, the popularity of such shows is beginning to fizzle as the idea/plot of the shows is becoming robotic and formulaic.
