10 Years of The Bachelor Franchise
Ten years of love. Ten years of drama. Ten years of people crying about people they’ll already be over by the time their exiting limo reaches the airport. The Bachelor franchise is turning 10 years crazy this spring, with its official date of start on March 25, 2002, since that marked the premiere of Alex Michel’s Bachelor Season 1.
Since then, we’ve seen 16 full seasons of The Bachelor, almost eight of The Bachelorette and soon three of Bachelor Pad. It’s been a wild “journey” so far. Here are 10 of the franchise’s most memorable moments, with — we hope — many more to come.
