The Bachelor

True love (or a TV facsimile thereof) gets the reality treatment in this long-running dating game, in which a successful bachelor romances a number of beauties. The list of possible paramours is reduced each week until he gives a final red rose to one of them. The series spun off 'The Bachelorette', a spate of rip-offs and very few lasting pairings.

Season 12, Episode 5 1205

First Aired: April 14, 2008

The six remaining bachelorettes arrive in Sun Valley, Idaho, and promptly get into a snowball fight with Matt, who takes Chelsea on a sleigh ride and then to a candlelit dinner. Later, there's a group ski date (and skiing lessons from Matt) with Amanda, Marshana, Robin and Shayne, then a skating date with Noelle, followed by an intimate fireside chat, all while tensions heat up among the other five bachelorettes. At the rose ceremony, Matt has four to dispense, leaving two out in the cold.
