The Bachelor: Listen To Your Heart has been in the works for months, but it wasn’t until last night during the Women Tell All that fans got an extended preview for the new show.
Throughout the trailer, the contestants are seen crying, kissing, and singing the song Shallow from the movie, A Star Is Born.
And while Chris Harrison was excited about this new spin-off show, Twitter followers didn’t exactly share the same feelings — with many mocking it on social media.
The Bachelor: Listen To Your Heart gets mocked on Twitter
Even Reality Steve, who is known for spoiling seasons of The Bachelor and the related shows, joined in on the mocking.
He joked that it was only Chris Harrison who was excited about the show.
Literally no one:
Not a single fucking soul:
Chris: “Everyone is talking about ‘Bachelor: Listen To Your Heart!”

One person pointed out that ABC must be tired of people going on the regular Bachelor franchise shows to boost their own musical ambitions. It often appears contestants sign up to market their own ventures in hopes of getting more exposure.

Others brought up the awkward overnight dates from The Bachelor franchise and joked that they might be taking place on a tour bus in the future.

But Jed Wyatt from The Bachelorette last season was the primary focus of the jokes. He admitted that he came on the show to promote his music career and proudly told Hannah’s parents that he had booked a jingle for a dog food commercial.
Now, viewers joke that he will be coming back to the show for a second chance at boosting his music career.

Others joked that he may now be sad because he could have waited and tried out for The Bachelor: Listen To Your Heart and avoided becoming one of the more hated contestants on the show.

Right now, the new show will provide new people for the Bachelor franchise to work with. And Reality Steve guessed that some of them could go to Bachelor In Paradise for the summer season in 2020.
The Bachelor: Listen To Your Heart is not the only spin-off in 2020
Earlier this year, it was revealed that The Bachelor may be trying to have shows covering the Monday night time slot all year round. The show used to split the time with Dancing With The Stars, but this year, ABC is launching two new shows.
The Bachelor: Listen To Your Heart will air in April and the new seniors spin-off for The Bachelor could air after September when Bachelor In Paradise wraps up.
The Bachelor airs Mondays at 8/7c on ABC.
