The Golden Bachelor Cast Revealed: Meet the 22 Women Vying for Gerry Turner’s Heart

They’ve been teachers, real estate agents, therapists – even cheerleaders and fitness instructors. They come from quaint small towns and large metropolitan areas. They have names like Edith, Peggy and Nancy. And all of them are over the age of 60.

ABC has released the names of Gerry Turner’s gals. All of them will compete for roses as well as his affection on The Golden Bachelor, coming sometime later this fall.

In addition to the names of the contestants, ABC also released a short teaser, giving fans a first look at the 22 women vying for the 72-year-old widower’s heart.
