One of the biggest reality shows on television at the moment is The Bachelor and with Netflix quickly moving into the genre with series such as Chasing Cameron, could Netflix accompany it with streaming The Bachelor, let’s take a look.
This series is a different version of the dating reality TV show. One Bachelor must find his true love through eliminations from week to week. The Bachelorette and Bachelor Pad have been successful spinoffs of the series. After its 2002 debut, the series now has 21 series.
It’s bewildering to a lot of people how this show has managed to survive the test of time but for those who love the show, they revisit it every single year and having the back catalogue on Netflix would be a godsend.
Sadly, that reality doesn’t look like it’ll ever come to fruition. ABC has a large amount of their content on Netflix, including a majority of its prime content. They also renew them annually. We think ABC would prefer you to tune in each week, and have it accessible on other platforms. We’ve heard no inkling that it will be coming to Netflix soon and that’s the way it’ll likely remain.
The same can be said for abroad too as the series isn’t available in any other of the Netflix regions.

The only option for streaming is with Hulu Plus, which allows you to watch new episodes every day. You’ll also be able to catch up with the last few episodes on the official ABC website and app suite. However, this method does not include ads.
