Gather your favorite snack recipes, put the bubbly (or beer, if you like) on ice, and brush up on your stats, because it’s almost time for the Super Bowl—or the Bachelor Nation version, anyway.
All four contestants from the Sunshine State have been sent packing from The Bachelor mansion this season (it’s number 20, if you’re counting), but that hasn’t stopped us from tuning in each week to see which lovely lady will receive Ben Higgins’s last remaining rose. (Our bet’s on Lauren B., by the way.) And although Bachelor Ben is arguably the most charming and relatable leading man to take on the show’s title role, we were devotees of the show long before locking eyes with the adorable Indiana native.
That’s why we’re counting down to Valentine’s Day, this Sunday, when ABC will honor its signature show with The Bachelor At 20: A Celebration of Love, a look back at 20 seasons’ worth of breakups, breakdowns, meltdowns, marriages, and more major drama than most of us will ever see in our own love lives (thankfully). The equivalent of a high-wattage halftime show? A surprise (but not really) wedding during the special taping, which is about as good as it gets for fans of the long-running franchise.
So tune in (or turn on the DVR if you’ve got Valentine’s Day plans) on Sunday night, and tell us—which Bachelor alums do you most look forward to seeing, and who do you think will end up the future Mrs. Higgins when season 20 comes to a close?
May the best bachelorette win!
