  • Summary: A spin-off series from ABC's hit reality show, The Bachelor, The Bachelorette follows one woman in the search for her own Mr. Right from a pool of 25 eligible young men. After several weeks of meeting different men, going on amazing dates, and learning about their home lives, TheA spin-off series from ABC's hit reality show, The Bachelor, The Bachelorette follows one woman in the search for her own Mr. Right from a pool of 25 eligible young men. After several weeks of meeting different men, going on amazing dates, and learning about their home lives, The Bachelorette will have the opportunity to continue dating one bachelor in the real world by presenting them with a single, red rose. Before this can happen, The Bachelorette must follow a gradual process of elimination, as her initial 25 bachelors are narrowed down week by week. At any point along the way, should a man decide that he is no longer interested in The Bachelorette, he may reject her invitation to continue dating.

    This unique dating process will give both the bachelors and bachelorette an unforgettable experience and an opportunity to make new friendships and quite possibly find true love, but after all of this, will the man she chooses accept her rose, and if he does will he pop the question?

    After being off the air for 3 years the series began again on Monday night, 19 May 2008 with its' 4th season, and now the 5th season is coming up.

    The premiere of The Bachelorette was good!...Appealingly, Trista is also filled with desire herself. Nothing about her is aloof; she's upfront about her lifelong loneliness, her wish for a husband, her fantasies of motherhood. [9 Jan 2003]

    I disliked the two editions of The Bachelor intensely -- those tacky 'rose ceremonies' and the intellectual nullity, the sheer conversational sliminess of both the bachelors! However, I am enthralled by The Bachelorette, and why should I try to excuse my change of heart and mind with fancy critical justifications? It's because I think Trista is pretty hot and very cool in the way she controls her own little corner of the TV universe.

    Socially, that reversal is a profoundly stupid idea. There's too much sexual stereotyping around, too much of a lingering sense that what makes a man a playboy makes a woman a slut. And The Bachelorette is hardly trying to explode those cliches. With its hokey title (a word no one ever uses) and its smarmy attitude (viewers are going to be looking for signs of sluttiness), this gimmicky series plays right into those stereotypes while pretending not to...The show also promises to be as irresistibly entertaining as "The Bachelor."

    Women will like the show because it's empowering and because television, for once, presents guys to ogle. Men will like it because Trista's pretty attractive herself. [9 Jan 2003, p.8]

    The final minutes of the show, when the rejects got to display their disappointment, were the hour's best, but that was only the beginning. [9 Jan 2003, p.91]

    I first watched the Show during Kaitlyn Bristowe's Season, her's was great because there was a good balance of Romance, but also Drama. But II first watched the Show during Kaitlyn Bristowe's Season, her's was great because there was a good balance of Romance, but also Drama. But I only saw a few episodes of JoJo's Season. I feel like every Promo for the Next Week was her Crying. Every. Single. Week. JoJo Crying! #NoThanks! Expand
