GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOTV) - What does a pageant star who calls herself the “hot-mess express,” a confident Nigerian beauty with a loud-and-proud personality, a deceptively bubbly spitfire who is hiding a dark family secret, a California beach blonde who has a secret that ironically may make her the Bachelor’s perfect match, and a lovable phlebotomist all have in common?
They’re all on the hunt for love with Colton Underwood when the 23rd edition of ABC’s hit romance reality series “The Bachelor” premieres with a live, three-hour special on MONDAY, JAN. 7 (8:00–11:00 p.m. EST), on The ABC Television Network, streaming and on demand.
Bachelor Nation viewing parties from across the country will be featured during the live, three-hour premiere.
