Here’s how to watch The Bachelor online free, live, on-demand, or without cable — so you don’t miss any of Season 22.
The new 2018 season of The Bachelor premieres January 1 on ABC. This is the 22nd season of the hit reality fix-em-up and get-em-hitched show, featuring a brand new bachelor looking for love.
This year’s lucky stud is Arie Luyendyk Jr. Bachelor Nation fans may remember Arie from his appearance on The Bachelorette six years ago. Arie came within a day of proposing to his dream girl Emily Maynard before he was sent packing, his heart broken in two. Arie has been looking for love ever since, only to come up empty. Now he’ll try his luck again in The Bachelor Season 22.
Arie is 35 years old, a successful real estate entrepreneur, and a native of the Netherlands. His father, Arie Luyendyk Sr., is a famous Formula One race car driver.
