The Bachelor is back but it looks like we are going to have to wait until next year to watch the new season!

Many things have been thrown out of wack because of COVID-19 and that includes television shows and series. Thankfully, the hit show is back. In fact, they just announced the premiere date for the next season: Monday, January 4th of 2021.

While this is exciting news in itself, it is made even better by the fact that two Minnesotans will be competing on the upcoming season! That is why I am sharing this amazing news and already have the date marked down in my calendar.

It was announced back in October of this year that two woman from the Land Of 10,000 Lakes will be competing on this season of the show. One is a 27-year-old woman from Woodbury named Michelle. The other lucky lady is a 24-year-old from Owatonna named Anna. They will be vying for the final rose from Matt James, who is friends with many former cast members from the hit franchise.

This isn't our first "Bachelor" connection here in Minnesota. A former "Bachelorette" from a few years back was actually the lead of the show! She mentioned the state we love many times during her season. It was awesome to see someone from our neck of the woods representing us on television. She and her final pick even came to the Northland shortly after the season ended, coming to Duluth to see the lights at Bentleyville!

Maybe we will have another Minnesotan "Bachelorette" if one of these ladies makes it to the final few weeks of the show! Fingers crossed they stick around a long time.
