VH1 has acquired all 12 “cycles” or as we called them before Tyra, “seasons,” of The Bachelor and The Bachelorette franchises, and is pulling a daily marathon stunt in June. From the press release:
VH1 will air the first seven seasons during the first week of June. Airing one season per day in a marathon format, VH1 will premiere the first edition of “The Bachelor” on Sunday, June 1 and conclude the week-long programming event with the seventh on Saturday, June 7.
VH1 Celebreality addicts will probably be disappointed by the relative lack of nudity and slap-fights, and I have some bad news for the kids: except for Trista and Ryan (shown, duh), all of the couples you’ll see in the first week have since broken up. If you’re going to pick a day to watch a full season, though, might I suggest Andrew Firestone on Tuesday, June 4. He was what we called a “douche” in 2003. It’s satisfying to see that he’s now giving Bachelor Cooking Tips on super-local TV.
