Anybody out there want to see who winds up joining him in his dream house on a lake in Indiana, where he hosts barbecues, plays pickleball and goes four-wheeling, cheers Chicago sports teams and knows exactly which restaurants to take his friends and family to for gustatory pleasures untold?
The show will air on ABC, right after Dancing with the Stars, at 10 p.m. on Monday nights. The premiere date hasn’t been announced, because the Hollywood strike has left all fall TV season debuts up in the air.
A retired restaurateur and doting father and grandfather, Gerry Turner lives in his dream house on a beautiful lake in Indiana. He’s often busy hosting barbecues, playing pickleball, cheering on his favorite Chicago sports teams, four-wheeling and spending time with friends and family at restaurants and local haunts.
Always a romantic, Turner married his high school sweetheart, Toni, in 1974. Together, they lived a full and happy life with their two daughters, Angie and Jenny, and later two granddaughters, Charlee and Payton. Sadly, after 43 years together, Toni suddenly fell ill and passed away in 2017.
Six years after Toni’s passing and with the support of his family, Turner is ready to put himself out there and find a love that will stand the test of time in his golden years.
After more than 20 years of fostering love on “The Bachelor,” “The Bachelorette” and “Bachelor in Paradise,” “The Golden Bachelor” showcases a whole new kind of love story – one for the golden years. On this all-new unscripted series, one hopeless romantic is given a second chance at love in the search for a partner with whom to share the sunset years of life. The women arriving at the mansion have a lifetime of experience, living through love, loss and laughter, hoping for a spark that ignites a future full of endless possibilities. In the end, will our Golden man turn the page to start a new chapter with the woman of his dreams? “The Golden Bachelor” will air this fall on ABC. Watch episodes on demand and on Hulu the day following their premieres.
ABC delivered on its promise with a senior citizen show, casting Turner as its star for the the spinoff, which will showcase a “whole new kind of love story — one for the golden years.” The network’s synopsis says a “hopeless romantic is given a second chance at love in the search for a partner with whom to share the sunset years of life.”
Casting calls for a senior citizen “Bachelor” had been airing during “The Bachelor” shows for years, keeping viewers wondering when, or if, the show would ever happen.
In the first trailer for “The Golden Bachelor” (watch above), Turner is introduced to America, standing in front of a mirror wearing a suit and hearing aids.
The voiceover in the trailer says: “He posts his thirst traps in a leather-bound album. His DMs have postage. He gets the early bird special any time he wants. If you call him, he’ll answer the phone. He doesn’t have gray hair — he has wisdom highlights. Florida wants to retire and move to him.
