The Bachelor has changed quite a bit since its first season back in 2002, but as we anticipate its 22nd season (yes, 22nd), we’re looking back at all the men who have held the title. Following the announcement that former Bachelorette contestant Arie Luyendyk Jr. will be the next Bachelor, the reactions from fans were mixed. One said, “What year is it? I feel like I need to whip out my Tamagotchi and some acid-wash jeans.” Meanwhile, former Bachelor Sean Lowe teased his pal, tweeting, “My grandmother has been petitioning for an older, grayer gentleman to be the bachelor for years now. She’s excited @ariejr!” Jokes aside, though, he’s not actually the oldest Bachelor. That honor goes to Byron, who was 40. Curious to know how old each of the leading men were during their seasons? Check out our complete Bachelor age breakdown, then get to know Arie Luyendyk Jr.
