A Show From ‘Bachelor’ Producers To Help Seniors Find Love Is In The Works

They're looking for singles ages 65 and older to apply.

If you think ABC’s longest-running TV dating show “The Bachelor” (currently on season 24) is just for 20- and 30-somethings, well … you’re probably right. Season 6 star Byron Velvick was 40 — and he was definitely the exception, not the rule.

We don’t expect to see any 40-plus contestants on “The Bachelor” or “The Bachelorette” any time soon, but that’s less of a bugbear now that the network has announced an exciting new dating show premise. During the Feb. 24 episode of “The Bachelor,” a casting call went out over Twitter for people age 65 and over.

ABC producer Lindsay Liles gave more information on Instagram, sharing a post that asked, “Are you entering your golden years and looking for romance?”


The post confirmed that the producers of “The Bachelor” are looking for “active and outgoing single men and women age 65 and up for a new exciting dating show!”
