We’re mere hours away from the season 27 premiere of America’s favorite dating reality TV series, The Bachelor!
In this new season, we will be joined by Zach Shallcross, the handsome single hailing all the way from Fullerton, California. We will also get to meet oh-so-many gorgeous bachelorettes, each fighting their way to secure Zach’s heart and live happily ever after. Sure, the formula has never changed, but why fix what’s not broken?! After all, just by the looks of it, we can tell this season is going to be one of the best ones yet.
If this isn’t your first merry-go-round, then you already know that you will follow Zach’s love-seeking journey for many weeks ahead. However, if you’re a first-time watcher (or just in need of a simple refresher), we’re here to tell you what you can expect going forward. Specifically, how long you’ll have to wait until you finally see who Zach Shallcross will pop the big question to.
Here’s what to know!
The Bachelor season 27 episode count
Should history repeat itself, we expect The Bachelor season 27 to have a total of 12 episodes this season. The first 10 episodes usually cover our bachelor’s journey, while the final few episodes consist of the “After the Final Rose” reunion special(s).
Each episode in this season will be approximately 2 hours long, but don’t be surprised if an episode goes as long as 3 hours. (You can’t rush love!) Also, recent seasons usually have an age rating of PG-13, so feel free to have your teens watch all 12 episodes alongside with you.
