The Golden Bachelor, which is the Bachelor Nation's latest installment, featuring Gerry Turner as the main cast member, will be the first of its kind. Premiering on September 28, the ABC franchise has been known to help people find love, and with the latest installment, it is shifting its focus to people in a difficult age range.

A rather modern take on the concept of dating and romantic experimentation, the upcoming series will focus on those about the age of 60. As such, The Golden Bachelor will see 22 women contending against each other to win the heart of 72-year-old Gerry Turner.

What did Gerry Turner had to say about The Golden Bachelor?

During their time on The Golden Bachelor, these women will meet, interact, and maybe even fall in love with Gerry Turner. The upcoming bachelor even spoke to Variety about the cast and noted that he doesn't have a say in casting. However, Gerry noted that he told the producers the "range of age" for women he'd be willing to date. He further spoke about finding love on national television and noted that he is hopeful about the same.

"At first, I thought, there's no way. I was really skeptical. But as I've thought about it and I've seen the process evolve and so forth, I really do think it's possible. So we'll see."

Gerry was previously married to Toni, his high school sweetheart for 43 years, until her death in 2017. Turner is a father to two daughters and a grandfather to two granddaughters, Charlee and Payton.


Earlier this month, The Golden Bachelor opened up about his late wife and noted that they had a plan of what their dream house was going to be. The main cast member added that the couple bought their dream house in 2017 when she retired, but soon after, she fell sick and her situation got worse over the next couple of weeks.

"So we went to the emergency room and she had a bacterial infection that infected her kidneys and infected her liver. So I took my wife to the emergency room on July 7th. She passed away on July 15th. No one’s ever going to replace Toni, but the love of my daughters and my granddaughters pulled me out of a dark spot."

The Golden Bachelor is set to air on Thursday, September 28, 2023, on ABC.
