As if The Bachelor and The Bachelorette weren't enough to feed our reality TV fixation, the franchise has expanded into multiple spin-offs over the years. See: Bachelor in Paradise, Bachelor Pad, The Bachelor Presents: Listen to Your Heart... and that's not even all of them. As Charity Lawson's season of The Bachelorette comes to a close, #BachelorNation is already gearing up for another show come September 28: The Golden Bachelor.
What's the twist in this new series, you ask? A retired restaurateur, father, and grandfather named Gerry Turner is ready to find love again after his wife of 43 years, Toni, suddenly passed away in 2017. As the first-ever Golden Bachelor, Gerry—who is 71 years old, BTW—proves that it's never too late to find love again. Ahead, find everything we know about the 22 ladies who are ready to receive Gerry's roses on The Golden Bachelor.
