The Bachelor Fantasy League, the official fantasy game of ABC’s hit romance reality series “The Bachelor,” is back with an all-new, re-imagined game experience for the 2019 season. Introducing a new format that allows fans to set a weekly lineup and earn fantasy roses based on how their Bachelorettes perform in each of the categories, the new Bachelor Fantasy League will bring viewers even closer to the action each week as Colton Underwood searches for his true love during the 23rd edition of the show.
Developed by Disney’s Direct to Consumer & International (DTCI) Technology division, The Bachelor Fantasy League is available now at ABC.com/BFL and on the ABC app and ESPN Fantasy app for iOS and Android mobile devices. The new season of “The Bachelor” premieres MONDAY, JAN. 7 (8:00–11:00 p.m. EST), with a live, three-hour special on The ABC Television Network, streaming and on demand.
Fans playing The Bachelor Fantasy League game have the opportunity each week to set a lineup of Bachelorettes, anticipating who they think will get them the most fantasy roses based on specific categories for each week. Weekly categories may include predicting which Bachelorette will receive a rose from Colton, who will kiss Colton, who will say “I’m here for the right reasons,” and more. Each Monday during the season, fans will have until 7:59 p.m. EST to set their lineups. Fans can join The Bachelor Fantasy League and start to earn roses at any point throughout the season. Also, fans who forget to update a lineup for a given week can still receive points for any of the remaining Bachelorettes carried over from the previous week’s lineup.
In addition to competing with family and friends, fans who earn fantasy roses will be entered into a drawing for the chance to win The Bachelor Fantasy League Grand Prize: a three-day, two-night fantasy trip for two to Los Angeles to attend “The Bachelorette: After the Final Rose” special for the next season of “The Bachelorette” in 2019.
Hosted by Chris Harrison, “The Bachelor” is a production of Next Entertainment in association with Warner Horizon Unscripted & Alternative Television. Mike Fleiss, Martin Hilton, Nicole Woods, Bennett Graebner and Elan Gale are the executive producers. “The Bachelor” is broadcast in 720 Progressive (720P), ABC’s selected HDTV format, with 5.1 stereo surround sound.
