Is there a trailer for The Bachelor?

ABC released a first look at series 24 in November 2019, in which we meet the season’s bachelor – 28-year-old airline pilot Peter Weber.

What is The Bachelor?

The Bachelor is an American dating show, in which a single bachelor must choose who to marry from a pool of 33 single girls over the course of 10 weeks in a luxury Californian villa.

Throughout the series, the man will take time to get to know each girl, eliminating a contestant every week until there are just two potential partners left.

Every episode, the bachelor present a rose to each woman he wants to remain on the show, and those who do not receive a rose then must leave the villa.

Season 24 takes place in a Californian villa, while the final third of episodes are filmed across the world, as the bachelor travels to Canada, England, New Zealand, Vietnam, Thailand and Korea to get to know the remaining singles even better.
