Gerry Turner gets a second chance at love as the first-ever Golden Bachelor

The 71-Year-Old’s Romantic Journey Begins With Fall Premiere of Hit ‘Bachelor’ Franchise’s Newest Iteration, ‘The Golden Bachelor,’ on ABC



It’s never too late to find love, and Gerry Turner is ready to prove it! ABC announced today that the charming 71-year-old patriarch from Indiana is the network’s first Golden Bachelor, showcasing that love stories, like so many other things, only get better with age. Turner will begin handing out roses when “The Golden Bachelor” premieres this fall. Watch episodes on demand and on Hulu the day following their premieres.

A retired restaurateur and doting father and grandfather, Gerry [GAIR-ee] Turner lives in his dream house on a beautiful lake in Indiana. He’s often busy hosting barbecues, playing pickleball, cheering on his favorite Chicago sports teams, four-wheeling and spending time with friends and family at restaurants and local haunts.

Always a romantic, Turner married his high school sweetheart, Toni, in 1974. Together, they lived a full and happy life with their two daughters, Angie and Jenny, and later two granddaughters, Charlee and Payton. Sadly, after 43 years together, Toni suddenly fell ill and passed away in 2017.

Six years after Toni’s passing and with the support of his family, Turner is ready to put himself out there and find a love that will stand the test of time in his golden years.

About “The Golden Bachelor”

The women arriving at the mansion have a lifetime of experience, living through love, loss and laughter, hoping for a spark that ignites a future full of endless possibilities. In the end, will our Golden man turn the page to start a new chapter with the woman of his dreams? “The Golden Bachelor” will air this fall on ABC.

The Golden Bachelor: 105 (10/26)

Hometowns are on the horizon for the golden bachelor. With only three roses to hand out, Gerry has a week of important moments ahead of him that will lead to his toughest decisions so far. First, one free-spirited woman is whisked away for a breathtaking once-in-a-lifetime date and finds herself opening up in unexpected ways. Then, the remaining women make their way to the final group date of the season – an evening of fun and games at the iconic Santa Monica Pier – but not before the pressure of the moment causes cracks to form in one woman’s cool and confident demeanor. With the stakes higher than ever before and the weight of Gerry potentially meeting their families looming, several women make bold and heartfelt confessions, but they’ll all need to face the possibility that their fairytale story with Gerry may not have a happy ending with the most intense and emotional rose ceremony yet.

The six women vying for Gerry’s heart are the following:

Ellen, 71, a pickleball co-captain from Delray Beach, Fla.
Faith, 61, a local radio host from Benton City, Wash.
Leslie, 64, a fitness instructor from Minneapolis, Minn.
Sandra, 75, a retired executive assistant from Doraville, Ga.
Susan, 66, a wedding officiant from Aston, Penn.
Theresa, 69, a securities professional from Shrewsbury, N.J.

Gerry Turner sets off across the country – from New Jersey to Washington and Minneapolis – to meet the families of his final three women, which, for the first time in “Bachelor” history, will include children and the toughest critics yet – grandchildren!

With only two roses to offer before jetting off to overnight dates, Gerry will face a near impossible decision and a rose ceremony that no one could have predicted.

The three women vying for Gerry’s heart are the following:

Faith, 61, a local radio host from Benton City, Wash.
Leslie, 64, a fitness instructor from Minneapolis, Minn.
Theresa, 69, a securities professional from Shrewsbury, N.J.
