Your Bachelor dance card is looking pretty full for the next few weeks. (Do we have to call it Juan-uary?)
First there's The Bachelor: Countdown to Juan Pablo, airing Sunday, January 5, 2014 from 8 to 9 p.m. ET on ABC. The next night is Juan Pablo Galavis' big Bachelor Season 18 premiere, from 8 to 10 p.m. on Monday, January 6.
Then there's The Bachelor: Behind the Scenes special, and ABC (via TV by the Numbers) just shared more details on that. The special airs from 8 to 9 pm. on Sunday, January 12, giving viewers a look behind the scenes of JP's journey.
The show will start on board the "Bachelor Bus" as Rosemaster Chris Harrison and Juan Pablo surprise fans by crashing Bachelor viewing parties. Then, as ABC puts it, viewers will get “an emotionally charged behind-the-scenes look at the day after the first rose ceremony” after nine women were eliminated and had to head home.
We'll see extended footage of the 18 surviving ladies as they move into The Bachelor mansion. Cameras will follow them as they unpack, explore the cushy digs, and get to know the competition/pretend to be nice to their faces and talk smack behind their backs. We know that drill.
Fans will also get a behind-the-scenes look at how the producers turned a California field into a winter wonderland for JP's first date. Before going out on that date, the single dad took his daughter Camila to the winterized location and she had a spin on the private ice-skating rink with her dad. It's her first time seeing snow, apparently.
But there's more! Viewers will get a more in-depth look at a few of the women who got roses the first night. And as a bonus, we’ll get a sneak peek at Episode 2 — which airs the next night on Monday, January 13 — as well as a glimpse of the rest of the season.
And don't forget, on Sunday, January 19, from 8 to 9 p.m., ABC is airing The Bachelor: Bachelor Love Stories, with updates from the successful couples. And on Sunday, January 26, we'll gather around for The Bachelor: Sean and Catherine's Wedding, which airs live from 8 to 10 p.m. ET.
Have you marked all the dates on your special Bachelor 2014 calendar? Will you be watching all of them or maybe skipping one or two big events?
