Exciting news for Bachelor Nation: The Bachelor is available on HBO Max — well, some of it. While the streamer service doesn’t have the full, extensive catalogue of the ABC dating reality TV series franchise, there are a handful of seasons from multiple Bachelor franchises, including The Bachelorette and Bachelor in Paradise, available to stream on the site right now. But wait, there’s more: HBO Max has also added international versions of the franchise to its vast library of content. With seasons from New Zealand, Australia, Canada, and the U.K., streamers will be able to venture across the world to watch contestants’ quest for love.
In The Bachelor category, streamers can relive Colton Underwood’s Season 23 cycle that featured Cassie Randolph, Caelynn Miller-Keyes, Tayshia Adams, and more. In The Bachelorette category, there’s Becca Kufrin’s Season 14 cycle that featured Garrett Yrigoyen, Underwood himself, and Blake Horstmann. Then there’s several seasons of Bachelor in Paradise and the lesser known, shorter-lived series Bachelor Pad, which predated Bachelor in Paradise and followed a somewhat similar format. Basically, it's got all the Bach content you could want — except, you know, new seasons of BiP and Bachelorette which have been postponed due to COVID-19.
As fans wait for production to resume, here are all the Bachelor franchise seasons available to stream on HBO Max right.
