The Bachelor producers are working on a new show for seniors. The news came out in January, but now fans saw the commercial for it during Peter Weber’s episode of The Bachelor on Monday. Many fans reacted to the clip and some of them were quite amusing.
The Bachelor – Seniors Looking For Love
TV Shows Ace reported in January, that Lindsay Liles, one of the producers of The Bachelor, shared about it on Instagram. At the time, we noted that they’ll feature people aged 65 and over. They also made it clear that the applicants should be “active” and “outgoing.” When it comes to a name, nobody’s sure, so for now, people think of it as ‘Seniors Looking For Love.’
Now, with the new on-screen advertising for the casting call, fans talked about the new show on Twitter. One person suggested it couldn’t be any more boring than watching “Peter Weber try and make a decision.” Meanwhile, others suggested that they may be meant people over 30, or even 40. But, no, sorry, it looks like when they say “senior,” they mean your grandmother or elderly parent. From the application site, it looks like they need to be a sharp senior as well, as people fill in a 54 point questionnaire.
Twitter reacts to the casting call
Talking about the age-group, it looks like many fans of the ABC franchise like the idea of seniors. However, one witty person suggested they actually look for “high school seniors.” Another person noted, “Now looking for eligible seniors to find love: apply at…..” Mawmaw: “OH HERE I COME!!!!”‘ Another one asked, “Ummm…. #TheBachelor is casting a seniors edition?!?! Ok, but will this be classic bachelor style or like #BachelorInParadise ? I need to know!!!!”
In line with other enthusiastic fans, this person posted up the meme below, but again it looks like they interpreted it as high school seniors.

One follower of The Bachelor wrote, “I’m going to ask around at my elderly care facilities, anyone looking for love….” Then another person quipped, “You guys. You guys. You guys. Did anyone else just see the plea from #TheBachelor casting for seniors looking to date!?!? I’m dead.”
Some amusing comments
Some people already started making jokes about the new show. One person posted, “What’s with all #TheBachelor spin offs? 2 weeks ago there was the announcement for the singing one and NOW there’s a bachelor for SENIORS. someone’s going to have a heart attack.” Another fan commented, “Seniors looking for love?” Are they going to hand out a little blue pill instead of Roses?” Another one hoped there’ll be “no windmills.”
