The series revolves around a bachelor courted by 25 women. The show follows the bachelor as he goes on a series of dates with the women, some of them group dates, some one-on-one dates. On each episode women are eliminated, generally at the end of the episode, but sometimes on the dates (during what are called "elimination dates").
ABC has renewed The Bachelor for a 21st season. The reality dating series has continued to be a dominant performer for the network after for over a decade on the air, drawing consistently strong ratings year after year.
With no signs of slowing down, The Bachelor will looks to be a part of ABC's prime time lineup for the foreseeable future. Multiple spinoffs have resulted as well, including The Bachelorette, Bachelor in Paradise, and the previously-cancelled Bachelor Pad.
