Bachelor Bracket – Season 22 – Arie Luyendyk, Jr.

And it’s back! Season 22 of The Bachelor begins just one week from today! Yep, time to schedule your watch party, start corralling your friends and fill out your Bachelor Brackets!

Obligatory explanation of how the Bachelor Bracket began: My girlfriends and I have a standing date with The Bachelor and The Bachelorette. We get together on Monday nights, watch the show, drink wine, eat delicious foods and provide hilarious commentary throughout. In preparation for Season 11 of The Bachelorette (Kaitlyn Bristowe) I created the first Official* Jeans & a Tank Top Bachelorette Bracket. I followed with another bracket for Ben Higgins and just kept going. Each bracket has been more successful than the last. I’m thrilled so many people are playing along and am honored to now bring you…

The Official* Jeans & a Tank Top Season 22 Bachelor Bracket!


Arie Luyendyk Bachelor Bracket Season 22

* Official through Jeans & a Tank Top, only, and in no way recognized or part of the ABC network. 

And THIS season, for the first time, I’m releasing the Official* Jeans & a Tank Top Season 22 Bachelor Women Cheat Sheet!

* See asterisk above.

I’d had requests in the past and finally got in gear and made it happen. This should be particularly helpful in a season of four Laurens.

This Bachelor Bracket begins AFTER the first rose ceremony. Trying to predict the outcome PRIOR to the first episode would be like filling out your March Madness bracket without knowing how the teams had been playing all season long. This way you get to see a little bit of each contender and make slightly more educated picks.

Here’s how it works:

Enjoy watching the first episode of The Bachelor, Season 22

  1. You do not need to make ANY selections PRIOR TO, or DURING, the first episode of The Bachelorette.
  2. Watch the first episode on Monday, January 1, 2018, at 8pm/7pm central.
  3. During the first rose ceremony, cross out the names of the women who have been sent home.

AFTER the first rose ceremony has ended:

  1. Choose the 18 women that you think will survive the next rose ceremony.
  2. Continuing filling out your entire bracket, to completion, PRIOR to watching the second rose ceremony.

That’s it! Play along with friends and choose your own reward for the person who ends with the highest points.

I will reveal my own completed Bachelor Bracket prior to Episode 2. So far, I’ve correctly picked KaitlynBen and JoJo’s final picks. I was only off by one gentleman on Rachel‘s season (and let’s be honest, who saw that coming?) Can I finally get back on track?

You can either print the bracket and cheat sheet from the image above, or download the Bracket PDF here (which includes instructions) and find the Cheat Sheet PDF here.

Throughout this season I’ll also be posting episode recaps, including links to fashion seen on The Bachelor (when I’m able to find it). Want to make sure you never miss a beat? Sign-up for my Bachelor/ette Fans mailing list!

Here’s what you’ll get:

  • You’ll be the first to know when a new Bracket hits the interwebs
  • You’ll receive an email when there’s a new post relating to The Bachelor and The Bachelorette – brackets, where to find fashion seen on the show and episode recaps
  • A sense of calm knowing that this is one less thing you’ll have to remember

What you won’t get:

  • Spammy emails
  • Your info sold, or given, to anyone else
  • Notifications about posts that are NOT Bachelor or Bachelorette related

If you think that sounds awesome (I sure do), all you gotta do is click!

    So who wins the bracket? Lauren or Becca?

      Nicole, these are the things that keep me up at night. Literally. Apparently we can now coin the phrase “pulling a Jason Mesnick”. Who could have known that would happen twice?

      For Season 22, I’m using semantics. Since the final line on the Bracket says “The One” and NOT “Final Rose Ceremony”, we’re going with his final (for now) choice. Points awarded if you picked Lauren as “The One.” Clearly I’ll need to plan for this situation when creating the Season 14 Bachelorette Bracket. #TeamBecca
