Tv Season Info

After being the runner-up in two separate seasons of "The Bachelorette," Nick Viall finally has the chance to find love in Season 21 of "The Bachelor." With advice from former Bachelors, Sean Lowe, Chris Soules, and Ben Higgins, Nick, a software sales executive from Milwaukee, Wisconsin, prepares to meet the 30 single women who will compete to win his heart. Nick's instant chemistry with one of the women creates jealousy in the house, but will her first impression be enough to turn into something serious?

Critic Reviews for The Bachelor Season 21

The Bachelor has found something that might well be as compelling, good-TV-wise, as villainy: forgiveness. The Bachelor has always relied on fairy tale frames for its narrative drama; now, it will be Nick [Viall]...

I have to wonder if The Bachelor's heart is in it. Not The Bachelor, but the show itself.

The real fun begins when Nick [Viall] shows us how self-aware he is. He mumbles, he doesn't make eye contact, he touches his face a lot and he's very long-winded. What a catch!.

In these trying times, is Nick our only hope? Excuse me while I go call my therapist.

This is not your typical season of The Bachelor. Nick Viall isn't your typical bachelor. He's just like you, America. He mumbles. He can't make eye contact. He rests his head on his hands. What a goof.

It's so interesting to see flashbacks of Nick from his days on The Bachelorette because he is so much better looking now. He earned his right to post shirtless selfies.

Sep 18, 2019 | Rating: 4.5/5.0 | Full Review…

If an accomplished, suitably-aged woman of color can believe in Nick [Viall] , maybe we can, too.

Last night was the first episode of a noir-esque, mystery programme entitled The Case of Nick's Missing Likability.

The Bachelor Season 21 certainly made a splash into the new year.

Sep 18, 2019 | Full Review…

I will say this for season 21: It wastes no time. Within about 60 seconds, Nick is already starring in a gratuitous shirtless montage.

    I didn't like Nick before but he has really grown on me and now he is one of my favorite bachelor's so far. I could not stand that Corinne on his season she was so annoying and rude to the other girls. I always thought it was sad that he always was the runner up on his two season of the Bachelorette. I hope he finds love in the future.
