For context, The Bachelor franchise is a popular reality television series that revolves around a single bachelor/bachelorette looking for love among a group of contestants. Throughout the season, the bachelor goes on dates with the contestants and eliminates them one by one until he chooses one to marry.

Other spinoffs include Bachelor in Paradise, where past contestants from The Bachelor and The Bachelorette come together in a tropical location to form new relationships. There are also Australian, Canadian, and United Kingdom versions of the reality TV show as well as various special editions. Many contestants reach further fame after appearing on the show.

It may have been fun to watch super hot people fall in love and fight with each other for a while, but Bachelor Nation, as the avid fanbase calls themselves, is looking for something a little different. Sparked by Bachelorette Gabby Windey’s beloved Grandpa John, fans saw the adorable, hilarious, and interesting possibility of having a senior citizen bachelor.

It turns out that the higher-ups heard the call to action! ABC and The Bachelor producers wouldn’t squander this fan-backed money-making pitch. HERE is the first teaser for The Golden Bachelor!

The iconic Bachelor rose slowly turns to gold while The Drifters’ ‘This Magic Moment plays.’ Yes, golden years – very clever. Will The actual roses used in The Golden Bachelor be gold? Would be interesting.

The most important part of this little teaser is that the actual Golden Bachelor will be revealed in just a few days on July 17!!

Do we think it’ll actually be Grandpa John?? Or some new senior citizen who’s about to set the reality dating world ablaze? Either way I, for one, can’t wait to see all those single seniors grabbing onto, their second chance at (televised) love!

About Lana Porter

Lana has never lost a Disney Trivia night. Maybe it’s the hundreds of times she’s been to Walt Disney World Resort in Florida, her love for Disney’s ’90’s era hand-animated musicals, or the fact that she’s often likened to cartoon characters, but Disney and its magic have a special place in her heart. Her favorite Disney experiences include the EPCOT Food and Wine Festival, eating Mickey Bars on the PeopleMover, and crying during the Magic Kingdom fireworks show. One day she hopes to be chosen as the rebel spy on Star Tours. When Lana isn’t Park Hopping, she’s at home reading books of all topics, watching her favs on Disney+, or snuggling her two cats, which she swears are not named after Disney characters. She loves surprising people with her knowledge of the Marvel Cinematic Universe but admits she is still catching up with Star Wars. She is happy to combine her excitement for writing with her love for Disney-style storytelling and share what she can with the world!
