Let’s kick things off with the big news that everyone wants to know (and probably already suspected) and that is when The Bachelor is going to be premiering? It should be no surprise to any Bachelor fans out there that it’s going to be airing on Monday, January 6 at 8 pm on ABC. The first Monday after the holiday season is typically when The new Bachelor seasons begin and in the case of pilot Pete’s new season we are looking at the same premiere time, so no surprises here.
We will say this though – make sure you have no plans to watch anything else that night because this premiere is three hours long! With everything that we’ve already heard about this season there is going to be a lot to cover so a three hour premiere will give us a good sense of who everyone is and if they are really there “for the right reasons” or not. Premiere night is always a lot of fun since it’s typically a bit of a gong show. Everyone is so nervous, drinks are flowing and competition is high to make a good first impression on Pete so he doesn’t send you home before you had a chance to say 5 words to the guy. There’s also always that one person that rubs everyone the wrong way that ends up staying way longer then anyone expects them to and we expect some of that to happen here as well since it wouldn’t be The Bachelor without it!
In addition to the premiere date being announced, Entertainment Weekly has shared the first promo for Pete’s season that includes a bit of a play on the famous windmill situation on Hannah Brown’s season, reminding everyone that The Bachelor is not afraid to go there with it’s promotional push. There is a lot to look forward to this season!!!
