‘The Golden Bachelor’: Meet the ladies looking for love on the 1st-ever season – National


It’s time to meet your Golden gals, Bachelor Nation!

The list of ladies who will compete for the heart of the first ever Golden Bachelor has been released, giving fans a glimpse of the classy cast before the show begins airing later this month.

These ladies look to be a fun bunch and – thank goodness – an age-appropriate group to date 72-year-old Gerry Turner. The youngest of the group is 60 and the oldest is 75.

This week, ABC dropped a teaser where fans could catch glimpses of some of the women hoping to receive Turner’s final rose.

There’s no shortage of gorgeous greys and laugh lines on these ladies, who all appear to be aging just as well as the show’s first leading man.

ABC has been teasing the possibility of a seniors-only franchise of The Bachelor for more than three years. In 2020 it began soliciting applications from “seniors looking for love,” but it was only this May that it was announced the series would finally come to fruition.

According to his bio, Turner is a retired restaurateur who married his high school sweetheart, Toni, in 1974. Sadly, she died in 2017 after a sudden illness.

“I have her picture on a dresser in my closet…. For a while, it was like I was having a hard time figuring out if she would be OK (with me moving on),” he told Good Morning America last month. “But we always told each other, when one of us goes we’d want the other one to be happy. She’s up there rooting (for me).”

Turner says he’s looking for an energetic partner with whom he can enjoy activities like pickleball and golf.

So, which of these ladies will be lucky enough to receive Turner’s final rose? Let’s meet the cast.
