Charlie O’Connell’s Bachelor 7 will be the franchise’s last unless ratings improve.
A preview at the end of the season finale of The Bachelorette 3 confirmed that actor Charlie O’Connell will be the star of The Bachelor 7. When the series debuts March 28, he’ll face more pressure than just negotiating a group of camera-happy women. The 10th season (counting The Bachelorette seasons) will be the franchise’s last unless it can pick up some viewers. According to E!, “An unnamed network source tells People that if ratings for the show do not improve with the upcoming season of The Bachelor, it likely spells the end for the series. Producers are currently contracted for two more installments of The Bachelor, but ABC has ultimate say whether the show lasts that long.”
