Gerry Turner is moving on from The Golden Bachelor. On May 17, he will give a special appearance at a Love and Roses Night event hosted by the Fort Wayne TinCaps minor league baseball team — his first major gig since starring on the reality TV show.

Hosted at the Parkview Field stadium in Fort Wayne, Indiana, the event promises a VIP experience with Gerry. Priced at $50, tickets include a Q&A session with him, a guaranteed meet and greet, and the opportunity for autographs and a photo. Ticket holders will also take home a Love and Roses wine glass and an All-Star ticket to a baseball game.

Gerry rose to fame on the debut season of The Golden Bachelor, the first-ever senior spinoff in the reality dating franchise. Throughout the season, fans watched the Indiana native form connections with cast members like Susan Noles, Kathy Swarts, and Leslie Fhima, but Theresa Nist ultimately won Gerry’s heart.

The pair got engaged in the show’s November 2023 finale and tied the knot in a televised ceremony on Jan. 4. But on April 12, Gerry and Theresa announced they were getting a divorce.

During a joint Good Morning America sit-down, Gerry revealed that they’d “had a number of heart-to-heart conversations” before deciding to separate. “We’ve looked closely at our situation, our living situation, so forth and — and we’ve kind of come to the conclusion mutually that it’s probably time for us to — dissolve our marriage,” he said.

Gerry’s Post-Divorce Update

On May 9, The Golden Bachelor star shared a first update since announcing the divorce. Along with a gallery of lakeside photos, presumably taken near his Indiana home, Gerry wrote in a caption, “My favorite time of the year on the Lake, and Cody’s too!” referring to his dog.

“In addition to her loving up on my dad and taking boat rides, she has the full-time job of keeping the geese off the shore,” Gerry continued. “Summer is close.”
