On rare occasions, a woman is removed from the show for breaking one of the rules.
The participants travel to romantic and exotic locations for their adventures, and the conflicts in the series, both internal and external, stem from the elimination-style format of the show. In practice, the show does not always follow its designed structure, and those variations are often a source of drama and conflict.
The Bachelor is an American dating and relationship reality television series that debuted on March 25, 2002, on ABC. The show's success has resulted in several spin-offs including The Bachelorette, Bachelor Pad, Bachelor in Paradise, Bachelor in Paradise: After Paradise, and The Bachelor Winter Games.
The series revolves around a single former bachelor (deemed eligible) who starts with a pool of romantic interests (typically 25) from whom the bachelor is expected to select a wife.
The other women learn that a woman has been eliminated when that woman's suitcase is taken away by a crew member.
A woman may withdraw from the competition at any time if she finds herself no longer interested in the bachelor.
