Admit it — your Monday nights have lost their meaning ever since the last Bachelor franchise, Bachelor in Paradise, ended. But luckily, we never have to say goodbye to the drama-filled show for long! Next up on the list is The Bachelor, which means we're ready to watch 25 women fight over one man for the 22nd time.
People were pretty shocked that ABC decided to bring back a blast from the past, Arie Luyendyk Jr., as the show's lead. Actually, #BachelorNation had a lot to say about it, too. Regardless of how anyone feels about the choice, we already know that Arie began filming with the ladies in September judging from the looks of producer Mike Fleiss's picture. Not only that, but ABC has finally revealed the premiere date!
Yep, clear your Monday nights in 2018, because The Bachelor is wasting no time in debuting the show in the new year.
