About The Bachelor & The Bachelorette

ABC struck gold with its unconventional dating series The Bachelor and The Bachelorette. After a combined 30 seasons between the two shows, numerous couples have gotten married, had kids, broken up, and met other contestants off-camera. The show’s spawned multiple parodies, and #BachelorNation runs deep on social media, sometimes not in the most positive light. This year, The Bachelorette contestant Kaitlyn Bristowe was slut-shamed for sleeping with two of the male contestants. ABC used the #AfterTheFinalRose special to address the issue. Now, Kaitlyn and her fiance Shawn have a huge Snapchat following during their engagement post-show. Each season somehow is more dramatic than the next, both on TV and online.
