Stay calm and carry on! The Bachelor: Greatest Seasons–Ever just dropped some major hints in its latest promo!
The Bachelor: Greatest Seasons–Ever! is going to be a wild ride down memory lane–and we can’t wait for it! Honestly, it just might be better than watching a brand-new season of one of the current shows.
It’s a fairly established (well, according to me) fact that a lot of folks became a part of Bachelor Nation circa Colton Underwood’s season. It’s strange, but any newbies to the franchise chose that as the starting point, and well, day one fans know much more drama went down long before the days of Colton’s fence jumping.
In fact, The Bachelor and its fellow spin-offs have had its fair share of craziness, some that surpass anything we’ve seen of recent. Ahem, Juan Pablo Galavis, anyone? Suffice to say, seasons of the past are well worth checking out, and soon we’ll be able to do just that.
We know that Ben Higgins, Sean Lowe, and Kaitlyn Bristowe are the first three seasons that will be covered on The Bachelor: Greatest Seasons–Ever. But the latest promo hints at what else is to come.
Kicking off on June 8th, the 10-episode throwback series promises to give the best form of déjà vu a Bachelor Nation fan could ask for. I mean, if there was ever going to be a replacement for the lack of new content, this is the way to do it, am I right?
We know at least three of the ten past seasons that are going to be covered during the series, but what about the remaining seven? Well, we don’t have official word on that just yet, however, Entertainment Weekly got an exclusive look at the latest promo–and it drops some major hints. Of course, they could just be snippets of seasons past. But for entertainment’s sake, let’s just assume they’re giving us clues (it’s more fun this way, isn’t it?)
Watch the promo, and then let’s break down exactly who we see, and make some solid connections and predictions.
Okay, so about 14 or so seconds in, did you catch contestant Chad Johnson taking out his anger on the door? Do you recall what season that went down in? If you guessed JoJo Fletcher–you’d be right! The infamous villain pulled this stunt during JoJo’s season of The Bachelorette. So, let’s presumably add her to the list.
Oh, Bad Chad–we did not miss you.
Next up in the quick teaser? Brad Womack telling Deanna Pappas it’s over. Let’s not forget he picked no one. So, yes, we just might be privy to watching this moment take place once again.
The notion that both JoJo and Brad’s seasons will be featured in the retrospective series is further confirmed by a glimpse at a very ad Derek Peth crying on his way out of JoJo’s life, and Brad making out with someone.
Which brings us to the next potential hint, which may or may not make some of you happy.
Are you ready for it? NICK VIALL.
As I said, some of you may be cringing and groaning at the thought of his season. But, isn’t it worth it for Rachel Lindsay alone? Just remind yourselves of that if/when we dive back into the hot mess that was his season.
And speaking of hot mess, the next up on our list of potential Bachelor Nation alums seen in the promo is…Jason “pulling a Mesnick” Mesnick. Yes, the term was coined after he changed his mind at the last minute. He was the original Arie Luyendyk Jr.
The end of the promo basically confirms everything we’ve talked about above, so there’s that. A poster image is shown of the Bachelor Nation alums we mentioned above plus Season 6’s Bachelorette, Ali Fedotowski as well as, *drum roll* the most-hated Bachelor of all time, Juan Pablo Galavis.
I don’t know about all of you, but I am in love with whoever selected the throwback seasons. Could they have done any better? Well, I’m sure they could have but we’re getting some of the best, most dramatic, and entertaining seasons of The Bachelor franchise ever.
The Bachelor: Greatest Seasons–Ever! is going to be the talk of the summer–and we are so ready for it!
