Have you enjoyed a glass of wine or five during the Bachelor? Do you always know who’s getting sent home (or at least who should be sent home)? Bach Bracket is the place for you.

Just imagine fantasy sports and ABC’s Bachelor franchise had a love child – its name would be Bach Bracket. You can join leagues with fellow Bach lovers, pick who will get a rose this ceremony, and of course earn some serious bragging rights when you are right.

Well, you have a few choices: create your own league, browse public leagues, or you can join a private league through an email invitation. If you’re looking for a longer explanation, check out our League Rules page.

If the names aren’t telling enough, a public league can be joined by anyone, while a private league requires a special invitation to join. If you’re creating the league, you can choose either one, so decide how exclusive you’re feeling and go for it. If you haven’t checked out the League Rules page, you probably should.

We’re glad you asked. This is the most important part of the game. Before each rose ceremony, you will be given a certain number of picks to give to those lucky ladies and gentlemen you think will be getting roses that week. Simply navigate to the My Picks page and check the box next to your favorites. Once you’ve chosen the right number of contestants, select Save My Bracket. After the rose ceremony, scores will be automatically tallied and you will receive points for each correct pick.

At this time, we do not have this feature. We are working on adding in custom point awards in the future, though, so stay tuned and let us know if you have questions in the meantime.

If you don’t know the answer to this one, we’re not 100% sure this site is for you. But it’s never too late to start watching, so here you go. The Bachelor Franchise is a series of TV shows that air on ABC. The franchise consists of three shows: The Bachelor, The Bachelorette, and Bachelor in Paradise.

The Bachelor consists of a single, good looking guy and approximately 25 ladies vying for that individual’s heart. Week by week, contestants get eliminated by The Bachelor until finally, The Bachelor must decide on his final woman. At that point, The Bachelor must decide if he would like to propose to that woman.

The Bachelorette is essentially the exact same, but with one woman and 25 men. At the end, the man that the Bachelorette chooses must decide if he wants to get down on one knee and pop the question.

Bachelor in Paradise originated as a spin-off of The Bachelor, where previous contestants who were unsuccessful on former seasons could have another shot at finding love. Take a bunch of beautiful people, put them on a tropical island, and watch things get steamy!

Take the drama, romance, and alcohol up 10 notches from The Bachelor… and you’ve got BIP.

It’s hard to believe, but we’re going on 15 years now! 20 seasons of The Bachelor, 12 seasons of The Bachelorette, and 3 seasons of Bachelor in Paradise.

Typically, contestants are eliminated during rose ceremonies. Rose ceremonies are dramatic events that usually take place at the end of each episode of The Bachelor, The Bachelorette, and Bachelor in Paradise. Rose ceremonies aren’t always consistent, though – there can be two in one episode, zero in one episode, or cancelled entirely.

During rose ceremonies, the person or persons handing out roses will call out contestants that they want to stay, one by one. The end of a rose ceremony is marked by goodbyes and almost always, tears.

One caveat: if The Bachelor or Bachelorette really isn’t feeling someone, they have the ability to send them home at any point during an episode. Just like that, they’ll have to pack their bags and go home.

Put simply, we do not know. It varies from episode to episode, and generally, towards the beginning of each season, more contestants are eliminated per episode. If you’re an avid Bachelor fan, you know that rose ceremonies can be pretty unpredictable.

For our purposes, we do our very best to estimate how many contestants will be eliminated in a rose ceremony so that your brackets can be as accurate as possible.
