The Bachelor is Back


Reporter: Sally Delta 

 Lynchburg, VA - It's the night a lot of you have been waiting for: the season premiere of The Bachelor. A lot of fans have stuck with the show for the 16 seasons it's aired on ABC.

So we dug into why fans keep coming back for more drama year after year.

Tori Gregory has watched the Bachelor for the past five years. 

"My mom used to watch it all the time and I just though it was neat, could people really fall in love on a TV show?" Gregory said. 

"Anything that has to do with romance or romanticism and finding the one person in your life is going to draw your attention," Brittany Spencer said. 

"I think everyone wants someone and if they can't find it, then they'll go to any measure," Gregory said. 

 To many, the Bachelor is a chance to watch a real life love story unfold on national television with a little drama on the side.

"The drama just kinda draws you in and the see the suspense of who's going to be picked and who's going to come next," Spencer said. 

"Apparently all the girls have a connection with him on the first night," Gregory said. 

 If you watched last year's season of The Bachelorette, you'll recognize this season's bachelor. Ben Flajnik, the winemaker from California, was runner up last season.

"I don't like his hair, it's like split down the middle and kinda wavy and greasy looking," Gregory said. 

 But there are 25 other girls who disagree. And even though Tori Gregory isn't Flajnik's biggest fan, she says she'll still tuning be it.

"I just hope the guy, Ben thinks with his head and not other places," Gregory said. 

Ben had his heart broken last season after he proposed to Ashley Herbert and found out she had chosen someone else.

On Monday night, the world gets to see his journey as he looks for love again. It all starts at 8:00 p.m. on ABC.
