A new Bachelor Nation baby has been born. The Bachelor Live On Stage will be traveling around the country with show alums Ben Higgins and Becca Kufrin as the hosts. Local contestants will have a once in a lifetime shot at love while meeting 10 potential partners in front of a live audience.
What Is It?
The show will basically be a live version of The Bachelor, except the audience will have a say in the decisions that are made. This sounds both terrifying and exhilarating. “From the first impression rose to group date challenges and coveted one-on-ones, watch it all unfold live on stage,” the official website explains. “Audience members and hosts will guide the Bachelor in his journey to find love. If the leading lady accepts the final rose, the night could end with the start of a beautiful romance.”
Who Is Looking for Love?
Ben and Becca revealed the names of four contestants who will be looking for love while visiting BUILD by Yahoo on January 29. First up, an environmental scientist from San Jose named Ryan Fox. The competitive individual “participates in CrossFit and triathlons to push himself. He loves to help push others and is a Special Olympics coach.” He’s keeping his fingers crossed to find a “special connection.”
Retired two-time Olympian Fabrice LaPierre will be looking for love in Mesa, Arizona. “Communication and trust are the keys to his heart – along with a great cup of coffee.” We’re into it! In Seattle, the audience will help Ethan Kang find love. The “world traveler” works in advertising. “He’s passionate about his career, but in his free time, he loves to read and spend time with his family. He’s looking for someone to join him on his international adventures.” We hope whoever he picks has a taste for adventure. Finally, Modesto, California will feature entrepreneur Reggie Rucker who is “incredibly passionate about sustainability and basketball.”
Sounds like some seriously eligible contestants!
But, I Get to Meet Ben and Becca?
Sort of. Host Chris Harrison divulged during Hannah Brown‘s Men Tell All episode that the former Bachelor star would MC the live event. However, the website states that “previous Bachelor and Bachelorette favorites will serve as your hosts,” which alludes to the idea that each city may have a different alum. Another option is that Ben and Becca will be taking over a majority of the cities with a few of his friends subbing out along the way.
How Much Are Tickets?
Tickets officially went on sale on July 26. The tour kicks off in February 2020 and runs through May. All cities have their tickets priced differently but, on average, they range from $40 to $70. Some towns also include meet-and-greet tickets for around $150.
