The Bachelor 2019 Fantasy League Glossary

By Mike Krolak | Dec 20th, 2018

Welcome to The Bachelor Fantasy League, the official ultimate fantasy game experience for the 2019 season of The Bachelor featuring Colton Underwood! Fans can play along with their families, friends, and Bachelor Nation to predict what happens on the show throughout the season—Who gets a rose? Who gets a kiss? Who goes home?—all for a chance to win the grand prize, a fantasy trip for two to Los Angeles, hotel and airfare included; and two tickets to "The Bachelorette: After the Final Rose," the tell-all special episode after The Bachelorette season finale in the summer of 2019. (No purchase is necessary to play. See Official Rules at ABC.com/BFL for full details.)

If you're new to The Bachelor you might be a little lost with some of the shorthand. If you find yourself wondering what a First Impression Rose is, this glossary provides a general guideline of how the show is typically structured. There can be variations in the format each season, as love isn't predictable—and neither is the show! But this list should give you all you need to set your lineups and try to outscore your pals so you can brag about your Bachelor Nation prowess!

Limo Arrivals - During the season premiere, the Bachelor stands outside the mansion as the women vying for his love cascade out of the limo using everything from puns to props to make a memorable first impression.

First Impression Rose - If one is given, this is the first rose presented during the season premiere of The Bachelor and is bestowed upon the woman who makes (you guessed it) the best first impression on the Bachelor. Typically, this rose is given out before the first rose ceremony and guarantees that the recipient will make it to the next week in the journey to find love.

Date Card - A date card is the official invitation from the Bachelor to join him on a 1-on-1 date, 2-on-1 date, or group date. The date card usually gives a small hint as to what the date will involve.

Group Dates - Select groups of women go on a date and partake in an activity with the Bachelor in hopes of receiving the group date rose (see below). Whoever captivates the Bachelor receives extra time with him.

Group Date Rose - With several women vying for the Bachelor's attention on a group date, the Bachelor decides who he felt he connected with the most and may give out a rose. This rose is usually given out at the end of the date and guarantees that the recipient will not be sent home during the next rose ceremony.

2-on-1 Dates - The dreaded 2-on-1. This happens when the Bachelor chooses two women to join him on a date. At the conclusion of the date, there are a few possible outcomes: one rose may be given out, both women go home or both remain.

Rose Ceremony - Typically during The Bachelor episodes, a progression of true love is seen and the Bachelor may say goodbye to those women with whom he does not feel a connection. Calling each woman by name, he asks "Will you accept this rose?"  The roses are given to the women he wishes to remain on a journey to find love and those who don't receive a rose immediately pack their bags to head home.

Hometown Dates - After dating for a few weeks, the Bachelor visits the hometowns and families of the remaining women while entertaining the prospect of a marriage proposal in the near future.

Fantasy Suite - The Bachelor has the option to invite a few select women to spend the night with him for one-on-one alone time in the romantic "Fantasy Suite," typically towards the end of the season.

Final Rose - The Final Rose refers to the season finale of The Bachelor where he generally decides which woman has won his heart and offers her the "final rose."

Women Tell All - "The Women Tell All" episode is a reunion where the Bachelor joins the women who were sent home throughout the season. The women reveal top moments from the show, bloopers are shared and tough questions are answered.

After The Final Rose - This episode immediately follows The Bachelor finale. The Bachelor, the final rose recipient and the final woman he sent home join each other in a talk-show format.
