The Golden Bachelor promises to “showcase a whole new kind of love story.” The series will follow one hopeless romantic who is given a second chance at love in the search for a partner with whom to share the sunset years of life. The women arriving at the mansion have a lifetime of experience, living through love, loss and laughter, hoping for a spark that ignites a future full of endless possibilities. In the end, will our Golden man turn the page to start a new chapter with the woman of his dreams?
The Golden Bachelor has been in the works for several years, with ABC first floating the idea during Season 24 of The Bachelor. A card shown during a commercial break directed “seniors looking for love” to the show’s casting site. Since then, the same casting cards have appeared numerous times on screen during all current iterations of the franchise.
