How To Play Golden Bachelor Fantasy

Golden Bachelor Fantasy Leagues Are Finally Here!

It’s finally here: the long awaited first season of The Golden Bachelor. We’ve been itching to watch seniors go for a second shot at love. If you’re like us, you’ve thought to yourself, “Wow; it would be so fun to have a game to play along with the show.”


Well, we have good news for you! You can play your own version of The Golden Bachelor with Bracketology’s four different Fantasy Bachelorette game types: from creating a March Madness-type bracket after the first episode, to picking who is going to move on each week, to choosing a different team of contestants weekly that score (or lose) points based off doing/saying Bachelor-related things. This challenge is on.


If you’re new to Bracketology, you can create an account here, or simply just sign-in if you are a veteran. Then navigate to the gaming portion of the site (our web app) by clicking Play in the top navigation bar where you can use the show dropdown or click on The Golden Bachelor to play along. Are you ready to join a family of reality TV fans?


First step is joining a community. Whether it is with a group of friends or the Official Bracketology Community, the purpose here is so you can play reality TV fantasy games with the same people across multiple shows. Rather than having to join new leagues and have a cluttered dashboard, you can stay within the same community year-over-year and keep your fantasy gaming competitive! 


Once you’re in a community, create or join the community’s Golden Bachelor league. Within the league, you can play up to 3 game types at the same time. There are four different game types to choose from, and you can read more about each game type below or click on the game type header for a more in-depth look.

Fantasy League Game Types

Bracketology offers four different game types for Golden Bachelor fantasy. Each league can play in up to 3 out of 4 game types per season. Learn more about these game types below!

Draft a new team of contestants for each episode & win or lose points based on what they do or say.

Pick Frequency: Weekly

Fill out your entire bracket after the 1st episode – guessing which contestants will get sent home each week.

Pick Frequency: Once

Each week, select contestants who you think will survive the next two Rose Ceremonies, points for each correct pick.


Pick Frequency: Weekly

Week to Week, but assign a point value to each contestant based on your confidence that they won’t be sent home.

Pick Frequency: Weekly


Tune in weekly on Thursdays to watch The Golden Bachelor on ABC. Scores are posted within your league and on the scoring recap pages here and here a few hours after the show airs, so check back to track your scores and see how you performed. Will you be walking away with a (championship) ring at the end of the season? Good luck.
