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 17, Episode 1 1701

First Aired: January 7, 2013

Spurned Dallas businessman Sean Lowe seeks a second chance at love as the matchmaking contest's Season 17 bachelor. In the opener, Sean chats with fellow "Bachelorette" alum Arie Luyendyk Jr. before arriving at the mansion to meet 26 female contenders at the first cocktail party. After the rose ceremony, seven of the women are sent home.
