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.
As a workaround, you can unlock past ceremonies and have a player select correct/incorrect contestants accordingly.
If no other ceremonies are active on the website & you’ve unlocked brackets, players can still make picks, but it will not be under the “My Picks” area in the main navigation.
Instead, users will need to navigate to the league itself, click on the Info tab, and click the “Make Picks” link next to the Rose Ceremony # that you’ve unlocked.
There are four ways to add a person to your league. The first, and easiest, is by navigating to your league & copying the league’s unique link. You can send this link to the user. Your link should look something like:
You can also share your league via Facebook, Twitter or by email.
