Bachelor 4 will star Bachelorette funny guy Bob; Bachelor 3 concludes Sunday.
ABC admits it screwed up with some reality series, but The Bachelor is not one of those: The show will return this fall for a fourth season, and it will star Bob Guiney, a bachelor from The Bachelorette. (You can apply to marry Bob.) The woman that rejected Bob, Trista Rehn, will get married to the man she selected, Ryan Sutter, on TV; a four-hour series will follow the couple’s wedding preparations. Meanwhile, The Bachelor 3 concludes as Andrew Firestone selects either Jennifer or Kirsten on the two-hour finale–but that won’t happen tonight. The finale airs this Sunday at 9 p.m. ET; tonight’s episode will find Andrew Firestone confronting the women he rejected.
