It’s never too late to give the people what they want!
For its 21st season, The Bachelor (with help from ESPN) is finally launching its own official fantasy league, meaning you can now compete against your friends and family for actual prizes while Nick Viall heads out on his search for love.
We may never know why it took ABC 21 seasons to finally give us this gift, but we are certainly not complaining!
Starting today, you can register to play on abc.com/bfl or the ESPN Fantasy App, and on Wednesday, Dec. 28, you can start to make your picks for who will make it to the hometown dates, and who will win Nick’s heart. You can change those picks up until week three, and you can also play in weekly games for each episode.
The full rules can be found here or in the video above, but the gist is that every correct answer you give earns you points, and then each point you win gives you a chance to win the grand prize: a trip to Los Angeles to watch the taping of The Bachelorette: After the Final Rose, as well as two tickets to Disneyland.
You can also create groups within the game so that you can still play with all the people who normally make up your fantasy league, so really, there’s no reason not to sign up immediately. Free stuff!
If, for some reason, you still haven’t gotten to know the 30 women vying for Nick Viall’s heart, check out our gallery and be prepared for dolphins. So. Many. Dolphins.
The Bachelor premieres Monday, Jan. 2 at 8 p.m. on ABC.
