Will you accept this rose?
For over 20 years, fans of The Bachelor and The Bachelorette have heard that iconic phrase said by young hopefuls, but now there's a new kind of bachelor in town: The Golden Bachelor. This time around, ABC's The Golden Bachelor — which premieres today, Thursday, September 28 — has contestants in their 60s and 70s looking for their second chance at love.
Watch 'The Golden Bachelor' on Hulu
The Golden Bachelor airs on ABC and will stream on Hulu the following day. Since those with Hulu + Live TV have access to ABC in most areas, that means it's possible to watch the show live while it airs.
The first-ever Golden Bachelor is Gerry Turner, a 72-year-old widower who was happily married for 43 years. Turner is a retired restauranteur, father and grandfather, and he's ready to give love another shot. He will be introduced to 22 women hoping to win his heart.
Turner spoke with ET's Denny Directo and said his daughters were the ones who actually encouraged him to be on the show, "They are very much fans of the show. They got me started watching it. They were the ones that motivated me to respond early on to the casting call."
"She would be thrilled for this," said Turner when asked what his late wife and former high school sweetheart, who passed in 2017, would think about this journey. "We talked frequently as time went on... about what we expected for the other if one of us didn't live forward, and it was, like, we both wanted the other to be happy."
