“The Bachelorette” first aired in 2003 with Trista Rehn as the inaugural leading lady looking for her future husband. Since then, Bachelor Nation has closely followed 14 other women (and 22 men in 23 seasons) do the same.
This life-altering journey requires going on group dates, one-on-one dates, two-on-one dates, and maybe even three-on-one dates. These outings are not typical your run-of-the-mill dinner-and-a-movie date or grab-a-drink-after-work date. Rather, the Bachelorette takes her love interests on adventurous excursions, like bungee jumping, tightrope walking, sumo wrestling, and so much more.
These out-of-the-box activities catapult the men out of their comfort zones and often show the Bachelorette who has the chops to keep up with her.
