Romance . Reality-TV . Game-Show . Drama . Reality

A gritty warehouse is the location for a topsy-turvy roller derby with Sean and eight of the bachelorettes. Sarah faces another physical challenge that causes her to have emotional breakdown, but Sean proves to be supportive and helps her to try and overcome her fears. All of the women push themselves past their limits until one woman falls hard and is rushed to the hospital. At the after party that night, fireworks erupt as Robyn and Tierra clash, leading one of them to storm off, threaten to leave and then dissolve in tears. It's up to Sean again to comfort the distraught woman and to figure out if the tears are genuine or crocodile, meant to manipulate him into giving her a rose.

    It serves up 25 attractive women willing to sacrifice their dignity--and future--to win a possible husband in what amounts to a glorified game show. [22 Mar 2002, p.49]

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Josh Friedman

    The cheese factor is undeniable, but The Bachelor makes a connection with its audience beyond the vicarious thrill. [25 Mar 2002, p.C20]

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Mike Lipton

    The singles scene must be pretty bleak if women would rather mass for a prime-time cattle call than go out on a blind date.

    People Weekly Full Review
  • Manuel Mendoza

    The six-week series premieres tonight on ABC, a network so desperate it has stooped to ripping off Fox, home of the infamous Who Wants to Marry a Multi-Millionaire? [25 Mar 2002, p.12C]

    Dallas Morning News Full Review
  • Aaron Barnhart

    The Bachelor gets off to a slow start but maybe that's to be expected. It starts with a marathon mixer; Take "hi, my name is Angelique" and multiply it 25 times and you get the idea. Michel tells the women he is "humbled and honored" by the turnout, perhaps forgetting that ABC flew all the women to Malibu for the party. [25 Mar 2002, p.D5]

    Kansas City Star Full Review
  • Rob Owen

    Like so many of these relationship reality shows, The Bachelor is cheesy and the whiff of desperation wafting off the contestants is strong. A preview for future episodes promises jealousy, back stabbing and cat fights as the bachelorettes vie for the main man...What do you want to bet this one won't make the National Organization for Women's Top 10? [22 Mar 2002, p.36]

    Pittsburgh Post-Gazette Full Review
  • Hal Boedeker

    Cringe-inducing... In a season of duds, the show is more jaw-droppingly bad than Jason Alexander's witless sitcom "Bob Patterson" and John McEnroe's foul game show "The Chair." [23 Mar 2002, p.E1]

    Orlando Sentinel Full Review
  • John Levesque

    Let's just say ABC could have saved a ton on limousine fees if it had shrink-wrapped 25 women and placed them in the meat case at Safeway for its new hook-up series, The Bachelor...The Bachelor is an embarrassment - a tawdry example of a desperate network taking advantage of desperate people. Stay away. [25 Mar 2002, p.C1]

    Seattle Post-Intelligencer Full Review
  • Michael Speier

    Besides being insulting to any woman who may not look like a runway model, The Bachelor, hosted by Chris Harrison, is just plain boring. Show supposedly takes the high road from more sexed-up fare like "Temptation Island," but the result is that ABC has promo'd the show with quick cuts of babes in bathing suits and bedside make-out sessions. It's as if the network bankrolled a brothel and positioned cameras to catch the action. [25 Mar 2002, p.34]

    Variety Full Review
  • Linda Stasi

    How do I loathe thee? Let me count the ways: You are degrading, debasing, desperate, depressing, dull, and dopey...You are a show so ill-conceived and so demeaning to women that you make Howard Stern look like a feminist. [25 Mar 2002, p.75]
