Senior citizens want a shot at love too right? The Bachelor franchise is known for many things:
2. The “most dramatic season finales” yet
3. Drunken antics
4. Cat fights
5. Contestants who are and aren’t there “for the right reasons”
6. And, spin-offs.
After the success of The Bachelorette, Bachelor Pad, Bachelor Winter Games, and Bachelor In Paradise, the producers are looking to add another to their roster. Apparently, it’s something for the over-65 viewers.
Senior citizens need love too, and host Chris Harrison might have just confirmed that a show is in the works to help them out.
Producer Lindsay Liles posted a casting call announcement to her Instagram in January looking for people in their “golden years.”
She claimed the show was looking for “active and outgoing single men and women” who are “ready for a committed relationship.”
The announcement asked: “Are you entering your golden years and looking for romance?” Will there be an audience for a show such as this?
Reality television is full of surprises these days, and it seems as if you can find a show featuring just about anything.
Bachelor producers are clearly looking to extend their roster of shows, with another spin-off said to be in the works involving musical talent.
The Bachelor: Listen to Your Heart will premiere on April 13. Men and women will look for love on the show just as they do on the others but they will do it with music.
Was Jed Wyatt in on these plans? Life would have been a lot easier for him and Hannah Brown had there been a show like this in the works, though he could have just as easily auditioned for American Idol.
On a recent episode of Nick Viall’s podcast Viall Files, the current Bachelor tried to defend himself, saying, “I’m making decisions in the moment based off the information I have. I’m not making dumb decisions on purpose.”
He continued, “I know everyone thinks I am and everyone thinks I’m being indecisive. And yeah, there was a lot of indecision, but that’s what you get when you date so many women at once.”
Peter later told E! News that he’s trying his best, saying, “You hope you’re going to find love at the end of it and yeah, things are always going to happen, things are gonna come out, because we’re human beings and we’re not perfect, but I just wish people would focus more on spreading love rather than so much hate.”
Imagine if Peter and Hannah Brown had actually ended up together? With the hot mess they both created out of both of their seasons, they would be a disaster waiting to happen.
As for a senior citizen version of The Bachelor, would you be into that? Anything for ratings these days.
