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 list of possible paramours is reduced each week until he gives a final red rose to one of them. The series spun off 'The Bachelorette', a spate of rip-offs and very few lasting pairings.
First Aired: October 15, 2007
Brad bestows roses on six of the nine remaining bachelorettes. But first, he takes six of the women to an L.A. comedy club for a night of improvisation---a skill that could come in handy at the cocktail party held before the rose ceremony. Meanwhile, one bachelorette gets a helicopter ride over the city (and maybe a rose), while two others join Brad at a posh Marina Del Rey residence. A rose awaits one, while a trip home awaits the other.
