The Bachelor 2019: Premiere Date, Spoilers, and More

With new television series premiering in the fall, we can't help but feel connected with Bachelor Nation, as we "patiently" wait for the latest on the next season of The Bachelor. Now that Bachelor in Paradise is over, we're left in our feelings, desperately waiting for news on what's to come.

Obviously, we know the real reason why you're here. Crying over Becca K's terrible judgment call when she picked that guy over Blake as well as the ending of Arie's crazy season, we're left with hope for the next season of The Bachelor in 2019. Maybe they'll pick someone better this time. Who knows?

Regardless, it's time to dive into early spoilers and when The Bachelor comes back to ABC. Because we simply can't wait any longer! So, when is The Bachelor 2019 premiere date, who is our next Bachelor, and who might our contestants be? Here's what we know so far.

The Bachelor 2019 Release Date

Although we would love for an early release of season 23 of The Bachelor, it's clear that The Bachelor has already had its run in 2018.

But, luckily for us, we know that fans don't have to wait much after the new year before being able to celebrate a new season.

At the end of the Bachelor in Paradise finale, host Chris Harrison revealed that The Bachelor 2019 premiere date is January 7.

While we're a little disappointed because season 22 of Bachelor was released on the 2nd and it feels like we have to wait another week, the 7th is still pretty close. In fact, most of us will still be on our holiday breaks when the premiere episode is released on ABC.

Who Is The Bachelor 2019?

There was a lot of speculation as to who the next Bachelor was for season 23. We even had a poll that fans voted on, and it was clear that fans wanted Jason to be our next Bach. But, unfortunately for them, the odds were not in their favor.

However, if you loved Becca's season of The Bachelorette as well as season 5 of Bachelor in Paradise, then you might like our next Bachelor, Colton Underwood.

And while we know Colton isn't exactly everyone's first choice, we know his season will be crazy, as always.

The Bachelor Season 23 Contestants

ABC has yet to release the girls for season 23. However, we do know a few of Colton's contestants.

On September 20, Colton appeared on The Ellen Degeneres Show with three of the women vying for his heart.

During the segment, in which the girls played Ellen's game called "Know or Go," fans got to meet Sydney Lutuaco, Annie Reardon, and Katie Morton, as they competed to officially meet Colton for the first time.

In the end, Annie won the challenge, but it was clear that this will certainly be an interesting season of The Bachelor to say the least. And hopefully, more information is to come.
