How Many Roses Were Harmed In The Making Of This ‘Bachelor’ Trailer?

This year’s series of ‘The Bachelor’ pulls out all of the stops in an incredibly cinematic, cliché-ridden trailer. Naturally, I love it.

I’m sorry to alarm you, but Network 10 just released their first trailer for this year’s season of The Bachelor and I am now pregnant. Do people do gift registries for baby showers? I’d like a fondue set.

Anyway, you may recall when we reported that this year’s Bachelor would be taking the form of 31-year-old Jimmy Nicholson: a rather attractive model-turned-pilot who is “ready to find his happily ever after”. Same.

Jimmy has described himself as a “self-confessed romantic” so it would not surprise me if he had a hand in shaping this incredibly sentimental trailer showing Jimmy in pilot uniform as he soars through the clouds; leaving a contrail of rose petals (and a proud-looking Osh) in his wake. Alright then, 10! Say no more!

Yep, Bachie producers have really leaned into the schmaltz with their first-look trailer, and we can only support their commitment to keeping the promise of love alive. God knows we need it.

The trailer is packed to the brim with cinematic tropes, including a nod to Love Actually featuring a bunch of couples lovingly reuniting at the airport as Jimmy looks on. We’ve all been there Jimmy. At least you won't have to take the Skybus home.

To top it all off, the whole thing comes bathed in the old-school classic “Lifts Us Up Where We Belong” made famous in the 1982 movie An Officer And A Gentleman about a young man aspiring to become – you guessed it – an airline pilot. My god, is it not just the most extra teaser you’ve ever seen? Consider me teased.

The latest season of The Bachelor will air on Network 10 very soon; we’ll let you know as soon as we have a date. Until then, you can find me watching this trailer on repeat.

The Bachelor will air on Network 10. Catch up on past seasons of the show on 10 play, and read our interview with past bachelor, Locky Gilbert, here.

Editor's Note: MTV and Network 10 are both subsidiaries of ViacomCBS.
