The Bachelor (ABC) -- Season 23 Thread -- premieres 1/7/19





Colton Underwood burst onto the scene during season 14 of "The Bachelorette." It was his good looks, love for dogs and vulnerability that charmed not only Bachelorette Becca Kufrin, but all of Bachelor Nation. This former NFL player made a play for Becca's heart but was sadly sent home after professing he had fallen in love. Now Colton is back and ready to capture hearts across America yet again when he returns for another shot at love as the star of the 23rd season of ABC's hit romance reality series "The Bachelor," premiering MONDAY, JAN. 7 (8:00-10:00 p.m. EST), on The ABC Television Network, streaming and on demand. During its 22nd season, ABC's "The Bachelor" dominated its 2-hour time period among Adults 18-49 and stood as Monday's No. 1 television series with Adults 18-34 and Women 18-34. Colton, 26, notably spoke to Becca very candidly about his virginity during season 14 of "The Bachelorette," and won over America when he opened up about the sensitive topic during an emotional conversation on "The Bachelorette: The Men Tell All" reunion.

It was THREE HOURS last night. The live show with the house parties was painful to watch, and you might as well call the season "Colton's Quest". I would have cut every woman who made virgin or deflowering jokes. Its going to be a trainwreck of a season. I'll know more of the names after a few episodes.

The nicest one seems to be the speech pathologist.. Don't remember her name.

Well I'm still learning the names of the women. I liked Hannah the blonde, and Tracy seems to be the villian of the season. They really seemed to highlight her being the oldest at 31. I didn't even count how many virgin references they made last night.

EDIT: It's Elyse who is 31, as I said I'm still learning the names.

This season is a bit "meh" so far. There's always drama but nobody appears to be bat-shit crazy.

I tried watching the first episode and an hour in, with the actual arrivals not even starting yet, I was done. I have no interest in viewing parties hosted by some of the most unlikable people to ever be on this show. Maybe keep that shit at 2 hours and ditch the nonsense.
