Critics Consensus

Alex Michel may be a handsome stag, but the series premiere of the The Bachelor is dull, trashy, and thoroughly bewildering.

Critic Reviews for The Bachelor Season 1

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (5)

Just when you think they can't get any more desperate at ABC, they find a way to look even more clueless.

Sep 6, 2019 | Full Review…

You are a show so ill-conceived and so demeaning to women that you make Howard Stern look like a feminist.

Sep 6, 2019 | Full Review…

The Bachelor is a triumph of clever editing. The most romantic, amusing or titillating moments from hours of undoubtedly tedious encounters are shown

Sep 6, 2019 | Full Review…

I expected to gasp at the second crop of cutesy desperadas vying for the affection of one lucky man. But all I got was a lousy docu-clip show

Sep 6, 2019 | Full Review…

Besides being insulting to any woman who may not look like a runway model, The Bachelor, hosted by Chris Harrison, is just plain boring.

[The Bachelor] is actually tame, but still detestable.

Sep 6, 2019 | Full Review…

I believe much of my sneering at the show came from knowing they were being schmucks for love, and on prime time television.

Sep 6, 2019 | Full Review…

Like so many of these relationship reality shows, The Bachelor is cheesy and the whiff of desperation wafting off the contestants is strong

Sep 6, 2019 | Full Review…

Beneath the show's shiny veneers are problematic messages about gender roles, dating, relationships, and marriage.

Sep 6, 2019 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

Watching The Bachelor made me grateful to be married.
