It's almost time to watch The Bachelor season 26 online, even without cable. Clayton Echard is in the spotlight tonight as The Bachelor 2022, after previously vying for The Bachelorette Michelle Young.
He was cut before hometown dates, but now he's got 31 women hoping to win his heart, final rose and Neil Lane diamond engagement ring.
The Bachelor 2022 premieres at 8 p.m. ET tonight (Monday, January 3) on ABC.
Clayton's season of The Bachelor will see some things change, some things remain the same and some things go back to the way they were! It's the first season to film back at the famous Villa de La Vina mansion in Agoura Hills, California since Peter Weber's installment in 2020. So, the ladies' limos will pull up in that familiar driveway.
There's a new host — former Bachelor Jesse Palmer (season 5 in 2004). He has a lot in common with Clayton, being a former pro football player himself. This season will also see The Bachelor and his cast traveling abroad again!
