Overview

*A New York Times Bestseller*

The first definitive, unauthorized, behind-the-scenes cultural history of the Bachelor franchise, America&;s favorite guilty pleasure
.


For sixteen years and thirty-six seasons, the Bachelor franchise has been a mainstay in American TV viewers&; lives. Since it premiered in 2002, the show&;s popularity and relevance have only grown&;more than eight million viewers tuned in to see the conclusion of the most recent season of The Bachelor.

Los Angeles Times journalist Amy Kaufman is a proud member of Bachelor Nation and has a long history with the franchise&;ABC even banned her from attending show events after her coverage of the program got a little too real for its liking. She has interviewed dozens of producers, contestants, and celebrity fans to give readers never-before-told details of the show&;s inner workings: what it&;s like to be trapped in the mansion &;bubble&;; dark, juicy tales of producer manipulation; and revelations about the alcohol-fueled debauchery that occurs long before the Fantasy Suite. 

Kaufman also explores what our fascination means, culturally: what the show says about the way we view so-called ideal suitors; our subconscious yearning for fairy-tale romance; and how this enduring television show has shaped society&;s feelings about love, marriage, and feminism by appealing to a marriage plot that&;s as old as the best of Jane Austen.

Presents an unauthorized, behind-the-scenes cultural history of the Bachelor franchise.

Draws on interviews with producers and fans to present a behind-the-scenes look at the reality television phenomenon and explores the show's cultural influence and significance.
