Where You Can Watch Every Country's Version Of The Bachelor

Since the premiere of "The Bachelor" in 2002, the franchise has proven to be one of the most successful in television history. The popular dating show has spawned several spinoffs just in the United States, including "The Bachelorette;" "Bachelor in Paradise;" "Bachelor Pad," which was similar to "Bachelor in Paradise," without the tropical location; "Bachelor in Paradise: After Paradise;" and "The Bachelor Winter Games" (via Distractify). Over the course of the past few decades, television's most dramatic dating show began appearing in other countries across the world. In fact, as of 2019, there were 37 versions of the show in other countries, including Australia, New Zealand, Canada, England, Vietnam, Russia, and more, according to The New York Times.

As you might imagine, there are variations, both large and small, between the international shows, many due to cultural differences. For example, in Australia, there is no sex allowed on the set, meaning no fantasy suites for Australian "Bachelor" contestants, according to Mama Mia. In other countries, like England, the contestants are often famous people that viewers instantly recognize — like Spencer Matthews, the younger brother of Pippa Middleton's husband, James Matthews (via Town & Country).
