Tonight marks the Season 23 premiere of the hit ABC reality series The Bachelor. This season starts former NFL tight end Colton Underwood as the titular Bachelor, who previously appeared as a contestant on Season 14 of The Bachelorette.
The Season 23 premiere, which kicks off at 8 p.m. ESt, is three hours long, so make sure to get comfortable. Like all seasons of The Bachelor, this season will consist of 30 young, beautiful women vying for the affection of Colton Underwood, who is a former NFL tight end that played for the Philadelphia Eagles, San Diego Chargers, and Oakland Raiders.
Even before the season kicked off, one of the moments from the premiere went viral, as 24-year-old contestant and model Brianna Barnes admitted to faking an Australian accent in an effort to stand out.
