‘The Golden Bachelor’ brings a new spin to Bachelor Nation

Get ready for a more mature version of “The Bachelor.” The brand new Bachelor Nation series, “The Golden Bachelor,” premieres tonight on ABC and will introduce 22 60-plus women looking for love with 72-year-old widower Gerry Turner.

As most reality dating shows consist of 20- and 30-somethings looking for love, this new series offers a refreshing spin on the format. With “The Golden Bachelor,” all 22 contestants come with wisdom, experience and plenty to offer in the love department.

ABC’s “The Golden Bachelor” stars Patty, Christina, Theresa, Peggy, Ellen, Susan, Faith, Leslie, Sandra, Kathy, Nancy, Maria, Edith, Pamela, Marina, Sylvia, Natasha, Joan, April, Anna, Renee, and Jeanie, all seeking a lasting connection with widower Gerry Turner. (ABC/Ricky Middlesworth)

Leading the series is Turner, a retired restaurateur, father and grandfather who lives in Indiana. Per an official description in Entertainment Weekly, Turner is “ready to put himself out there and find a love that will stand the test of time in his golden years.”

ABC released a contestant introduction video filled with women who speak to their strengths as potential matches for Turner. In the clip previewed in Entertainment Weekly, Natascha, a 60-year-old pro-aging coach and speaker, states, “Age is just a number and not a limitation.” A New Yorker, Natascha “just wants to find someone with whom to enjoy the simple things in life.”

Sandra, a 75-year-old retired executive assistant from Doraville, Georgia, also states she is “ready to find love in the clip.” She adds, “Well hell, I’ve been ready to find love for a long time, people!” Maria, a 60-year-old health and wellness director from Teaneck, New Jersey, wants more than just love.

Described as “a firecracker that’s ready to find a spark,” she proclaims in the video, “I am looking for a love adventure … with a cherry on top!” Check out the clip below:

“The Golden Bachelor” premieres tonight, Thursday, Sept. 28, at 8 p.m. PT/ET on ABC.
