Bachelor Nation, rejoice! You never have to print out 20+ paper brackets again, because ABC and ESPN have finally partnered up to create The Bachelor Fantasy League. It’ll be available for Nick Viall’s season, which premieres on Jan. 2, but you can start registering now and drafting your picks on Dec. 28.
According to an official video statement from ABC, you create a username for yourself and your group, pick the girls you think will make it to the hometown dates, and who will receive the final rose. You have until the third episode to change your picks, and every week you’ll get to play fun games to predict what might happen in that episode.
You can check your score on leaderboards the next day, and for every point you earn you get a chance to win a trip for two to Los Angeles to attend next summer’s The Bachelorette: After The Final Rose taping.
As someone who has loved The Bachelor for like, ever, I was pissed when Nick was announced this season’s bachelor. I promised myself I wouldn’t watch, but this fantasy league is a game changer. Coincidence?
I think not. Well played, ABC.
