'Golden Bachelor' Women to Watch: Shark Diver, Globe Trotter, and More
Meet the nine women who will be vying for the heart of Gerry, a widower, on the upcoming show The Golden Bachelor.
The upcoming season of The Golden Bachelor is set to introduce viewers to a diverse group of women vying for Gerry's heart. Among them are a cageless shark diver, a triple master's degree holder, a former NFL cheerleader, and even a former Bachelor's mom. Gerry, a widower who lost his wife Toni in 2017 after more than four decades of marriage, has shared what he's looking for in a potential partner.
For Gerry, the most important quality he seeks is a certain look in the eye, something he's experienced before and knows when it's present. He believes that if he finds that connection, he will pursue that person above all others. Additionally, he desires someone with a great sense of humor, particularly one that is self-effacing. Sensitivity, warmth, and kindness are also traits he values, as well as someone who can blend well with him to create a strong partnership. Gerry recognizes the importance of this factor, having felt it in his previous relationship.
