True love (or a TV facsimile thereof) gets the reality treatment in this long-running dating game, in which a successful bachelor romances a number of beauties.

The Season 23 premiere features Colton Underwood. Among the women vying for his affection: a pageant star who calls herself the "hot-mess express"; a confident Nigerian beauty with a loud-and-proud personality; a deceptively bubbly spitfire who is hiding a dark family secret; and a California beach blonde who has a secret that ironically may make her a perfect match for Underwood.
