About Bracketology

Get to know the team, and how we got started.

[how it started]

We started our first property, Bach Bracket, back in 2016 because we LOVE The Bachelor, and, back then, there really wasn’t such a thing as a fantasy Bachelor league online. We had played in our own ‘league’ together for years, sending over our picks via text – and keeping score in a Google Sheet.


One day, over a weekday meal in L.A. that probably lasted far too long & included a little too much wine to be considered a ‘work lunch’, we drew the framework of Bach Bracket where every great idea gets its start – on the back of some cocktail napkins. We were so excited that we called a web developer friend of ours on our way back to the office & asked how much it would cost to design our first version. He said “$750,” and we said “We’re in!”


Several weeks later, we were emailed a series of PDF mockups of the site, and an invoice for $750. In all of our excitement (and naivete) we didn’t realize that in tech speak, design doesn’t mean develop. We had a beautiful picture of what Bach Bracket could be… but definitely no Bach Bracket. When we got the actual quote for getting a full-functioning site built, we were shocked. Like, talk to your husbands/boyfriends to make sure they are comfortable with you dipping into your savings, shocked. But after seeing our vision in those wireframe images, we couldn’t resist making it a reality.

[where we're headed]

For the last several years, we have been the largest & most used Bachelor fantasy site online.


In 2022, Jonah & David joined the team and helped Bracketology expand outside of The Bachelor – adding fan-favorite TV franchises like Survivor, Big Brother, Drag Race, and more into the mix.


In January 2024, Bracketology launched our very first mobile app, and we continue to serve as the go-to, centralized hub for all reality TV fantasy gaming.
