ABC announced that season 26 of The Bachelor will premiere soon. The TV show, The Bachelor, has not announced who will be hosting the show. But we do know that the former Bachelor and NFL player, Jesse Palmer will be hosting after Chris Harrison left earlier this year. “I couldn’t be more thrilled to be home,” Palmer, 46, told in September of returning to the show.
In that same month, ABC shared a list of 33 possible contestants to be on the next show.
Reality shows about love are popular on TV. One of them is called The Bachelor. People on the show fall in love with each other. This is the oldest show that is still on the air. It has lots of people watching it and that’s why it’s popular.
The ABC network has not yet decided the future of the Bachelor Nation flagship show. There were a lot of controversies this past season, especially with the host Chris Harrison. This shows that one person, Harrison, stepped away from the show. Two people who were Bachelorettes before took his place.
The people at ABC might want to look at the ratings for when The Bachelorette and Bachelor in Paradise are on TV before deciding anything about the parent show. We want the show to be renewed. Here is what we know about the show, The Bachelor Season 26.
What will be the premiere date for the show The Bachelor Season 26?
The bachelor is on TV around fall. This year, the show was not on TV until next year. Due to delays filming The Bachelorette, the series was moved from May 2020 to the fall. This move pushed The Bachelor to January 2021.
Now, The Bachelorette will have two seasons back-to-back. Season 18 will air in the fall. This means that the flagship series will likely come back in January 2022.
What will be there in The Bachelor Season 26?
In this show, one man will look for love. He will go on a series of dates and pick the women he likes to see who he has a spark with.
There are roughly 34 ladies that are competing on the new season of The Bachelor. They all went to L.A. in September so they could try to find love, according to Reality Steve’s blog post. If you want to know who the ladies are, go there. But note that not every one of these women makes the final cast.
What was there in the previous seasons?
This show has a single person who is trying to find love. They do this by getting rid of people. In the end, they might get married and have kids with that person. The show goes to places like Hawaii and Spain for dates.
The above description is just a general guideline. In practice, the show does not always follow its designed structure. So, there can be changes and those changes can be dramatic and conflict-filled too. It might include:
- A candidate who has been eliminated returns to the show to plead her case to the bachelor.
- A bachelor distributes more or fewer roses than planned.
- A bachelor eliminates a woman outside of the normal elimination process. For example, the bachelor may eliminate both women on a two-on-one date.
- The bachelor chooses to pursue a relationship with his final selection rather than propose marriage.
In Season 6, the producers of the show could not decide between Byron Velvick and Jay Overbye. They needed to find out which bachelor would make the best husband. After 25 women had gone on dates with both men, they chose Byron Velvick.

In some cases, the bachelor on the show has not followed the rules. For example, Brad Womack and Jason Mesnick both broke the rules. Like Mesnick, Arie Luyendyk Jr. also broke off his engagement, and during the After the Final Rose episode, he proposed to the first runner-up (Lauren Burnham) with whom he is now married.
What cast is expected to be there in The Bachelor Season 26?
We don’t know who will be the lead of the series right now. Usually, it’s one of the men from The Bachelorette. We’ll have to wait until Season 25 is done to see if they are the lead for Season 26 of The Bachelor.
We don’t know if Chris Harrison will come back as a host on The Bachelor. He left the show only temporarily, but it will ultimately be a production decision.
