This show's just as subtle as it was in 2015.

This is a recipe for an amazing season: a Bachelor who thinks he's unworthy of every woman in the room and is willing to impress them as much as they are going to try to impress him.

The Bachelor is good harmful fun, and the pilot is by far the best episode of every season because how often do you get to meet 26 strangers in a state of raw nerves and glittering formalwear...

    Ben Higgins is such a great guy and he is my 2nd favorite bachelor so far. He is very funny and is such a genuinely nice guy. I never liked his final pick and thought she was all wrong for him. I hope he can find love because he is so deserving of it.
