The hit show, The Bachelor,  has been full of drama on Monday nights at 7 p.m. and it has taken a wild turn. The Bachelor takes its start in Agoura Hills in the Los Angeles area at “Bachelor Mansion.” The television show revolves around bachelor Colton Underwood, who is looking to find love, as well as 30 bachelorettes who are all trying to do the same. Every Monday night there are three to four girls who are sent home; these are the girls Colton has gotten to know and cannot see a future with.

Bachelor star, Underwood overcomes an unexpected turn of events when girlfriend Cassie Randolph confesses that she does not know if she can get to the point of marriage with Colton. Colton is left with three ladies: Hannah, Tayshia and Cassie, and he told all three of them that he is “falling in love”. In week nine of The Bachelor, Cassie comes to the realization that she is confused about her feelings towards Colton. Underwood does not know how to take this information and confesses that he wants Cassie to be the one he is engaged within the end. Cassie becomes overwhelmed and unsure about marrying Colton and ends up leaving the show. Alyssa Cicero said, “I was rooting for Cassie since the first episode, so I was sad to see her go. But I also think that if she was not ready to get engaged at the end of it then she should have left sooner.” Hannah and Tayshia are conflicted by his words to Cassie. At the end of this crazy episode, Colton ends up jumping the fence and leaving Bachelor territory. Being there is only one more episode of this season’s The Bachelor, nobody knows how this will fall into place.

The Bachelor has been airing since 2003, hosted by Chris Harrison, who has been in it since the beginning. The show has become such a success that it has resulted in several spin-offs including: The Bachelorette, Bachelor Pad, Bachelor In Paradise, Bachelor in Paradise: After Paradise, The Bachelor Winter Games and Women Tell all. The Bachelor finale is on Monday, March 11, from 8-10 p.m EST. and 7-9 p.m. CST.
