The Bachelor: Listen to Your Heart premieres on Monday, April 13. Since Clare Crawley’s upcoming season of The Bachelorette is on halt, this show will provide Bachelor Nation with their fix, for now. TV Shows Ace previously revealed the details of Listen to Your Heart, including its premise.
It turns out that the show isn’t completely ready. Host Chris Harrison admits that ABC had to rush to get the show out as soon as possible. Bachelor Nation is looking forward to this new show, especially in a time of self-isolation and uncertainty. Here’s the reason why the show isn’t almost ready to air.
The Bachelor Presents: Listen to Your Heart isn’t entirely ready to air
The Bachelorette is on halt amid the coronavirus pandemic. In an interview with Entertainment Tonight correspondent and girlfriend Lauren Zima, Chris Harrison talked about the new spin-off series. He says they’re rushing to finish the show to suffice Bachelor Nation.
“People were asking, ‘Why can’t we get Listen to Your Heart earlier?’ We were rushing to get Listen to Your Heart out on Monday, April 13,” Chris says. “We were crushing the post department, now we are doing this from home, so even the version that I just watched, is not cut, it’s not ready to go, it’s not ready to air.”
Chris only watched the “rough versions” of the series. Thankfully, the ABC production team has been working on the series from home, leading up to Monday night’s premiere. Chris said that they’re working as hard as they can to give Bachelor Nation as much content as possible. But it’s become a challenge to work from home, like it has for many people.
Is it a singing competition or a dating show?
The Bachelor: Listen to Your Heart features 20 contestants who make music and find love. They embark on Bachelor-style dates as they try to score love and a music career. They hope that the songwriting process will bring them closer together.
Listen to Your Heart is nothing like Bachelor Nation has seen before. It’s like a combination of The Bachelor and American Idol. It’s something fresh, new, and unexpected as viewers hang out at home. In an interview with E! News, Chris explained the concept to those who are curious.
He says it’s more of a mix of Bachelor in Paradise and A Star is Born. However, it’s not the same format as Bachelor in Paradise. It’s more focused on the chemistry and the relationship that’s flourishing, on and off the stage. This new series is similar to Bachelor in Paradise, in which people fight over each other.
“It’s a little like Bachelor in Paradise in that regard, you know, maybe there’s on particular woman or guy or whatever that two people like or more, and you end up with these love triangles and love squares and pentagons and octagons.”
This fresh approach gives viewers the “best of both worlds.” While most of the contestants want fame, the most important to them is finding true love. Chris promises that Listen to Your Heart will feel more like The Bachelor, and less like another singing competition.
The Bachelor Presents: Listen to Your Heart premieres Monday, April 13 at 8:00 p.m. ET on ABC.
