More than 25 seasons of The Bachelor have aired since the reality dating show first debuted on ABC in 2002. Now, a full 20 years later, the show is still going strong. But fan admiration doesn’t mean The Bachelor has been successful in its supposed mission.
The show pairs one single man or woman with a handful of eligible contestants. He or she then dates all of the contestants until he finds the one he wants to spend the rest of his life with. In reality, the bachelors rarely spend the rest of their lives with their chosen contestants. According to the Bachelor Nation Fandom site, only three bachelors are still with the contestants who received their final rose.
