The Bachelor Season 25 ended up being one of the most seismic for the franchise. It introduced Bachelor Nation to the first-ever Black Bachelor, Matt James, and also led to the shocking firing of the long-time host, Chris Harrison. 

The season stirred up plenty of overdue conversations about The Bachelor franchise and its relation to race and diversity thanks to racially insensitive photos that resurfaced from Matt James’ frontrunner Rachael Kirkconnell. 

With such a whirlwind of shocking developments throughout the season, it certainly became one of the more buzzed-about competition shows this year. 

Along with The Bachelor, the following seven shows have been nominated in The Competition Show of 2021 category: American Idol, America’s Got Talent, Dancing with The Stars, RuPaul’s Drag Race, The Bachelorette, The Masked Singer, and The Voice.
