“I am thrilled to be part of the Bachelor Live Tour and alongside Ben as we bring all the best parts of the show to your city,” said co-host Becca Kufrin. “The Bachelor experience changed my life in the most amazing ways, so being able to visit cities around the country and allowing others to feel that unique energy, positivity, hope and love (fingers crossed) is something so truly special. Because of Bachelor Nation, I have shared myself and relationships, and all of the ups and downs, tears and smiles, heartbreak and happiness that came with it, and now it’s time for others to share theirs as we kick off this ‘journey’ together!”
“Sharing the stage with one of the most beloved Bachelorettes is an honor! I am thrilled that Becca and I will be co-hosting this tour together!” said Ben Higgins.
Each stage show will introduce one lucky hometown bachelor to local ladies from the audience. Through a series of games, challenges, onstage dates and other fun getting-to-know-you scenarios, the Bachelor will hand the final rose to the woman he’s most compatible with.
And, for the first time ever, Bachelor Nation will have a say! Audience members will help along the journey by asking questions, making suggestions and cheering on the participants on stage. From the first impression rose to group date challenges and the coveted one-on-ones, the production gives fans the chance to watch live from their seats as the journey unfolds on stage.
It’s all the fun, flirting, drama and romance from your favorite TV show in one unforgettable evening! The Bachelor Live on Stage has something for every Bachelor fan, whether you’re looking to find love or have always wanted to get an exclusive peek behind the scenes of your favorite TV show.
