The news is out! The Golden Bachelor and Bachelor in Paradise will premiere on the same day, September 28th, 2023! The anticipation of the premiere date has been long awaited, and Bachelor Nation fans can’t contain their excitement (much like I can’t either).

While we know what Paradise is all about, The Golden Bachelor will surely bring an exciting and potentially more heartfelt version of the show that we all know and love to the table. I cannot wait to see Golden Gerry do his thing and hopefully find love…again!

Are you excited for The Golden Bachelor and Bachelor in Paradise?

Our leading man, Gerry Turner, is all set and ready to find love…again. Six years ago, he tragically lost the love of his life, Toni, to a brief illness. Now, at 71 years old, he’s ready to find love again, although he knows he’ll never find a love quite like Toni’s.

He made his national TV debut on the Men Tell All episode of The Bachelorette and was greeted with loud applause, cute signs, and many fans already rooting for him across the country. He was so well-spoken and seemed to be there with only the purest of intentions.

He gave great advice on making the most of your time with your spouse. He, of course, also made us all cry during his promotional package when he told him and Toni’s dream house story and where he’s at today.

Of course, this journey won’t be the easiest for Gerry, but we know he can find new love with his positive attitude toward life!

Gerry, we wish you nothing but the best! Cheers, to love, laughter, and tons of happiness!

Next, let’s talk all about Bachelor in Paradise!

Bachelor in Paradise is already on its 9th season if you can believe it. Of course, our 2nd favorite bartender, Wells Adams, will be returning too! No offense to Wells, but the tried and true OG’s know that Jorge will forever and always be the best bartender that Paradise has ever had!

While we don’t quite know everyone on the cast this year, we also have some confirmations and other predictions. Whoever is on this cast, there will be plenty of drama to go around and share. All I ask for is some pretty dramatic people, borderline mean and crazy, and some of the ‘quiet assassins’ (like Michael and Danielle) that will make the season much more enjoyable!

Who are you most excited to see in Paradise? Let us know if you know anything below or have strong feelings about what will happen this season! What will the drama be like? Compare it to another season down below, and let’s chat!
