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").
