What is The Golden Bachelor?
The Golden Bachelor is a spinoff of The Bachelor in which seniors will be looking for love. Producers have been looking to cast contestants who are 65 years old or older. The first lead has yet to be announced.

The women arriving at the mansion have a lifetime of experience, living through love, loss and laughter, hoping for a spark that ignites a future full of endless possibilities. In the end, will our Golden man turn the page to start a new chapter with the woman of his dreams?”
