Editorial Reviews

Exclusive home video edition of Season One of the hit reality series about an exciting quest for love - with over 30 minutes of scintillating never-before-seen footage. Management consultant Alex Michel is the single man who enters a dating minefield of dinners, horseback rides and romantic getaways in which the locales (Las Vegas, Santa Barbara, Manhattan, and Hawaii's Kona) are exotic, the hopes are high and competition among the 25 ladies sometimes borders on the low-down.

The season that started it all!! The season that brought us the exquisite Trista Rehn!!! This DVD has got it all including extra features showing extended interviews, dates and commentary. Each show is edited into a tidy 20 minutes (approx.) so you get the richness of the show without the tiresome, heart-pounding pauses.

What I can't understand is why the other seasons haven't been released in this format, especially Trista's Bachelorette season! Her wedding was viewed by millions and to date, her relationship constructed on the show is the only one that has resulted in such a union.

Chant with me everyone:

"WE WANT MORE!! WE WANT MORE!! WE WANT MORE!!"

One complaint that I had with "Best Of Survivor Season One" was that it was a truncated, piece-meal version of the original series that cut out some of the most memorable scenes of the show, like Sue's infamous 'snake-eat-rat' tribal council speech. "Best of The Bachelor" showcases the series in its entirety as it was broadcasted (though somewhat edited for time) and features some never-before-seen bonus interview footage at the end of the tape. Even if you have never seen the show, the video will take you right from the tumultuous beginning all the way up to the climactic ending, no pun intended :) For fans of the show and other reality date-o-holics, this video is sure to please your palate.

You'll probably find this unusual for a man to be commenting on a TV series, such as the Bachelor, but I actually got hooked when watching later televised episodes of the Bachelor and the Bachelorette with my wife! I purchased the "Best of the Bachelor" for a couple reasons: The price was right and I was curious to see how this episode would play out? I guess I was amazed to see how and what all these beautiful women would do in order to get a red rose and continue through the next round! I didn't always agree with the selection process regarding who was sent home, but it was still entertaining. I understand that several of the last rose couples did not take the final step and get married. I guess the romance wore off after the TV cameras were turned off.

"The Best of the Bachelor" was really good although it is Season One ONLY!! Where is the rest of the series? I would purchase Aaron, Andrew & Bryon's season on DVD (with outtakes). Also, where is the Bachelorette? My ALL TIME favorite is Trista & Ryan with Meredith & Ian coming in second. Mike Fleiss, are you listening??

The First Bachelor show is very unique because nobody knew what to expect when this show aired back in the day (back in 2002). It was a very unique show (this TV Show had great ratings; even though, people may deny this today in 2016). Comedian Jay Leno would poke fun at Alex Michel (a lot)during his monologue when he was the king of late night. He considered this show to be a joke. Second, There was Paradise Island (if I am correct) and this aired on Fox before the first Bachelor on ABC came out, and it was an interesting show (this Paradise Island) but that show could not even compete with the ABC production. Alex Michel in the end chose a great woman (and it was not Trista Rehn) but his relationship with the beautiful Amanda Marsh fizzled in the end. I still think that format of the show is great. One dates 25 women, and as usual there is a rose ceremony, and the ones who leave are the ones who don't get rose. (I am referring to the final match result) I could not understand this at all, but this tells you that 2 beautiful people in the end are not meant for each other. What happened to Amanda Marsh? Did She marry? Where is she right now in 2016? And what ever happened to Alex Michel? He does not even appear on any bachelors at all? Her dad (Amanda's dad) is in the Gas business, and Alex's parents live in Dallas Texas. This DVD may be 60 minutes long but get it so you can know how it was in the first season. I recommend the first season. Everything was and is original of the first Bachelor. Alex Michel may the classiest and best looking Bachelor, ever! This individual looks like a blue blood. Alex Michel should be the bachelor for 2017! He should be given a second chance at love.

I liked the best of the Bachelor but I don't want just the first bachelor on DVD I want all the Bachelor seasons on DVD and all the Bachelorette seasons also and until Mike Fliess does that he won't see five stars from me! Other than that, I liked it!

This is a very well presented DVD. What you get are mini-versions of the episodes from Season 1 of the reality show THE BACHELOR.

Added bonuses included previously unseen material This is good stuff. What you get to see are the things you want to see. More of the romance, more of the drama, more of the potential sex, more of the fun. There's also more of Amanda- a definite good thing in my book. If you're a fan of the show I recommend this DVD, and if you're not, you may find yourself fascinated by the exploits and becoming a fan yourself.
