* Spinoff: Two (three if you count ''The Bacheorette''). ** The first, ''Bachelor Pad'', was a more traditional reality competition show where the former contestants where split by gender and competed against each other ''Series/Survivor''-style for the first few weeks, then as pairs for the last leg of the competition. It also had a twist that at the end the winning couple had to vote separately on whether to keep the $250,000 prize for themselves or share it between the two of them. If they both voted share, they would both receive $125,000. If one voted share and the other voted keep, the one who voted keep would get the whole prize. If they both voted to keep, then ''neither'' would win, and the prize would be distributed amongst the eliminated houseguests. The series lasted three seasons. ** The second spinoff was ''Bachelor in Paradise'', which was a lot closer to the traditional format, but with a mix of Bachelor Pad as well. Men and women from previous seasons spent the summer at a tropical resort, going on dates and making connections. At the end of each episode, the two people without roses had to leave the resort, but the next week would bring in two more previous contestants. There was no cash prize either - the goal was to spark new relationships, just in greater numbers than the standard show.

* TokenMinority: The shows usually will have one or two non-white contestants per season, who never win and rarely even get close to winning. And when they do, it's often a case of ButNotTooBlack, with light-skinned black people or white Hispanics.

** Also, you'd think some of these men/women would have ''actually paid attention'' to who stays and who goes. When the partner takes you on a nice safe date, he/she actually cares about you. When the partner has you (ahem) swim with sharks or go bungee jumping, the TV station wants cheap ratings, and the partner isn't saying no. The risk ''does not'' make it worth it, and they usually get dumped after this. Also, the first to arrive always thinks they're the one the bachelor/bachelorette ''really loves'', but in fact, they're the ones to get ditched (often for no good reason).

As of this writing, fourteen seasons of ''The Bachelor'' and six of its DistaffCounterpart, ''The Bachelorette'', have aired. The former show started in 2002, the latter in 2003. Out of twenty resulting couples (two seasons ended with no one chosen,) only one couple has gotten married, in a lavish televised ceremony, and they have since had two children. Of the other thirteen, twelve have broken up and one is engaged, though she's been arrested for assaulting him, but that's another story...[[note]]They don't even try to hide it anymore: The last five seasons combined have four contestants from previous shows... and a former Bachelor returned for another shot.[[/note]]
