In its January 2003 debut on ABC, the first season featured Trista Rehn, the runner-up date from the first season of The Bachelor, offering the opportunity for Rehn to choose a husband among 25 bachelors.

The Bachelorette is a spin-off from the American competitive reality dating game show The Bachelor.The series revolves around a single bachelorette (deemed eligible), who is usually a reject from the previous Bachelor season, and a pool of romantic interests (typically 25; 30 in season 5), which could include a potential husband for the bachelorette. Unlike The Bachelor, one of two male suitors proposes to the bachelorette for the final selection.The Bachelor does not, however, always propose at the end of the show.At the end of Juan Pablo's season, he decided to "choose" a girl to keep spending time with, but evidently was not ready for a proposal.After last airing on February 28, 2005, the series returned to ABC during the spring of 2008, following an absence of three years.All of the rules are adopted from its parent show, The Bachelor.
