After 24 successful seasons, ABC's hit reality dating show 'The Bachelor' is looking to create a spin-off staring senior citizens.
This unique move was announced over social media, as the show's producer posted a casting call looking for people over the age of 65. Specifically, the post read "Now Casting Seniors Looking for Love," including details such as "looking for active and outgoing single men and women" who are "entering their golden years and looking for romance".
Retirement is nearing and divorce rates in couples over 50 are on a steady incline, making Boomers an ideal demographic to center a new dating show concept around. This, coupled with the popularity of reality dating shows could offer the loyal Millennial and Gen Z audience a fresh take on reality TV, while introducing more relatable characters for Boomers.
