Warner Brothers delivers another dramatic season of ‘The Bachelor’


Warner Brothers does it again with another dramatic season of “The Bachelor.” The beloved franchise is going into their 28th season starring bachelor Joey Graziadei. The show aired in January, and each episode is full of drama, girl fights and many rose ceremonies.

I’ve been a fan of the franchise for years, and when I saw the trailer for the new season on TV, I knew I had to watch.

In this season of “The Bachelor” we follow tennis pro Joey Graziadei on his journey to find love. The season began with 32 women, which is the largest group in Bachelor history. The women all arrive in limousines and gorgeous gowns, all ready with anticipation to meet the bachelor. Night one is filled with many show-stopping introductions and the first rose ceremony where some contestants will be eliminated. This process continues as the season goes on, and the emotions rise each week.

Watching the show always has me and my girlfriends on the edge of our seats with anticipation. The storyline holds steady, but the events that occur each week make viewers want more. 

A specific episode that stood out to me this season was episode four. In this episode, the girls and Joey travel to the beautiful island country of Malta. In this specific episode, the women thought the drama between contestants Maria and Sydney would stay behind in L.A. Unfortunately, the drama would continue in this episode. The bickering began between the two women when Sydney made some far-fetched accusations about Maria. The pair immediately dislike one another, and this tension carries into their relationships with the Bachelor. Since the women’s time with Joey is always unknown, Joey wanted to put an end to this unnecessary drama. 

To squash this situation, the two girls were invited on a 2-on-1 date, which was intriguing to viewers, including me. The pair strongly dislike each other, and this definitely shows throughout the date. The two are either sitting in silence when around one another or they are at each other’s throats. The tension between the two was definitely noticed by Joey, and he wanted to hear both sides. At the end of the date, the evidence with Sydney’s story is not lining up, and Joey shockingly sends her home. At this point, my girlfriends and I are screaming at the TV. 

This episode has been my favorite of the season so far, and the plot will continue to thicken as the season goes on. I do enjoy watching this show, even though others may consider it “trash TV.” 

The only con about the episodes is the length. The episodes are usually two hours long, or sometimes the show is split into two days. The episodes seem to drag on at some points and some of the information within the episodes is not necessary. 

The world seems to be giving “The Bachelor” good ratings this season, and I would also give a good review. This season’s Bachelor has been an improvement over past seasons, which has helped improve the plot of the show. There are a few more episodes left in the season and I can’t wait to see what happens next. This type of TV is definitely not for everyone, but if you enjoy reality TV this show may be right up your alley.
