** 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.

* GenreSavvy: Nikki Ferrell, who scored the final rose on the season with Juan Pablo Galavis, clearly did her homework and thus averted a common aftereffect of the experience. Even ''he'' seemed to realize his chances of finding true love here.

* MonochromeCasting: The only people to even get a ''chance'' are usually white or light-skinned Hispanic. Asians are rare, and don't even ask about black people.
** Finally ''dented'' at least, as far as Matt's season goes; African-American contestant Marshana Ritchie managed to get as far as the final 6 before going home.
** Fan favorite Rachel Lindsay is the first black lead in the franchise as the Bachelorette for season 13.

* NeverTrustATrailer: this show is famous for this. They edit their trailers to make the viewers think something will happen, and the exact opposite will happen. For example, during Jojo's season, there was a trailer that [[AllGirlsWantBadBoys Chad]] punched another guy, but really the other guy just hit his head on the side of the pool. Another time, during Jake's season, the trailer made it seem like two of the girls were falling for each other, and someone in the voice-over said "there's some sort of secret affair going on", but really it was another contestant had slept with a producer.
* OneTrueLove: Pretty much subverted every time.

** Sometimes the result is inverted from the norm, as the Bachelor ''actually chooses'' the AlphaBitch ( [[CoughSnarkCough *cough*Courtney*cough*cough*]] ).
