The Bachelor returns to live audiences with the Bachelor Live On Stage show, and fans can get tickets to this exciting event. Beloved Bachelor Nation star Becca Kufrin will once again host the live show. She got her start when she found love with Arie Luyendyk Jr. on The Bachelor season 22 in 2018. However, viewers were shocked when Arie changed his mind and broke off his engagement with Becca for his runner-up, Lauren Burnham, before the season finished airing. Later that year, Becca starred in her own season of The Bachelorette, and got engaged to Garrett Yrigoyen. However, they announced their split in September 2020. Now, Becca is engaged to Thomas Jacobs whom she met on Bachelor In Paradise season 7 in 2021.
In 2022, the Bachelor Live On Stage show kicked off in March in Illinois. The tour traveled across the country, and featured popular cast members as the bachelors. The men included James Bonsall, Connor Brennan, Justin Glaze, Ivan Hall, Rick Leach, Rodney Mathews, and Andrew Spencer. Several other Bachelor franchise cast members made special appearances, including Thomas, who accompanied Becca on many of the tour dates. One of the most exciting moments of the tour was when Tia Booth, another franchise favorite, got engaged to Taylor Mock, after proposing on stage in Atlanta. However, the 2023 version of the Bachelor Live On Stage show is much different from last year’s.
Bachelor Live On Stage Is Now A Residency In Arizona
According to the official Bachelor Live On Stage website, the show still features Becca as the host, but it’s now a residency that will last for three weekends in Scottsdale, Arizona, instead of a cross-country tour. Bachelor Live On Stage will take place at the Talking Stick Resort during the weekends of April 7-8, April 14-15, and April 21-22. On the Bachelor Happy Hour podcast, Becca explained that the show was switched to a residency because Scottsdale is the number two destination in the country for bachelorette parties. Because the show is at a resort, Becca said it will have a fun, interactive, party-type feel. She compared it to Bachelor in Paradise, rather than The Bachelor mansion.
Bachelor Live On Stage Features Fan Favorites
Bachelor Live On Stage will feature Becca for two of the weekends, April 7-8 and April 21-22, along with Andrew, the show’s Bachelor. For the April 14-15 weekend, Becca is traveling to a wedding in Italy, so Andrew will host, with Rodney as the Bachelor. Becca gushed that Andrew and Rodney’s show will be so much fun because the men are such a blast together, and so energetic. Becca also revealed that Thomas will definitely be in Arizona during one of the weekends, to make a surprise appearance, but she wasn’t sure which one.
How Bachelor Live On Stage Works
Becca shared that the Bachelor Live 2023 show is 75-minutes long, with no intermission. It will have audience interaction, as it has in the past. They pull ten to 12 contestants from the audience to appear on stage. There are group dates, skits, and rose ceremonies, as well as dancing. At the end, instead of falling in love with the Bachelor, the winner receives a big gift package, including Becca’s Bourdon wine, and fun things from local Scottsdale businesses.
