ABC’s The Bachelor 6 debuts tonight.
Get ready for the best! debut! episode! ever! as the superlative-filled Bachelor kicks off its sixth season. With a 0-for-5 track record, the series is mixing things up a little bit, introducing two bachelors during tonight’s debut. The women will pick one who will ride out the series; later during the two-hour episode, he’ll dump 10 of the 25 women. Also this year, the bachelor will live with the women, sort of. Finally, there’s a more “mature cast,” according to the New York Post, which says the women are between 27 and 39. And as USA TODAY says, the men, at 40, are older, too.
