Back to The Bach

“Back to The Bach” is a live interview recording of former contestants from ABC’s The Bachelor and The Bachelorette. Our guests have just seen an improvised parody of The Bachelor based on their own love journey. They then sit down for a Q&A session with our cast and audience, so that we can hear the real story of what happened on the show.
