The Bachelor first premiered on March 25, 2002 on ABC. This year The Bachelor will have its 15-year anniversary. The show’s success has resulted in 6 spinoffs: (1) The Bachelorette; (2) Bachelor Pad; (3) The Bachelor in Paradise; (4) The Bachelor in Paradise: After Paradise; (5) The Bachelor Live; and (6) Ben and Lauren: Happily Ever After. You could throw “The Bachelor” brand on nearly anything and it would be successful.

The elimination round was tough on Nick, so he confided in his remaining six girlfriends about how hard it’s been on him to date them all simultaneously. The ‘sweet six’ were all dumbfounded when Nick appeared to doubt whether he wanted to continue looking for love on national television by dating 30 women at once. Here is a clip of how that all went down, along with one of the ladies admitting that she literally wanted to choke Nick.
