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 announced today that The Bachelor has been renewed for a 24th season. The reality dating series has continued to be a dominant performer for the network after more than a decade on the air, drawing remarkably consistent and strong ratings year after year.
The Bachelor franchise has multiple spin-offs currently on the air, namely mainstays The Bachelorette, which premieres its new season on Monday, and summer entry Bachelor in Paradise.
