Okay, I have FIXED THIS SHOW
You start with all the contestants -- no "more come in later" stuff. Even number of men and women.
At the beginning of each episode, everyone pairs up, but you CANNOT pair up with someone you have already paired with unless there is no other choice. Maybe there's a random draw (or, since this is The Bachelor, production will assign the pairs based on Drama Potential).
The pairs spend the episodes going on dates or other couple-activities, and they rehearse a song. ANY song.
Second half of the episode, you all perform those songs for judges. The judges then eliminate ONE contestant. Not one couple, not one male and one female. Exactly one.
Then there's a rose ceremony. The gender which just got someone eliminated by the judges gets roses to hand out. One person of the OTHER gender doesn't get a rose, so effectively a couple gets eliminated. You can give your rose to the same person every week, but if that person can't sing worth a damn, you better build some other friendships.
At some point -- maybe when there are four couples left -- you all pick your Ride Or Die, so to speak. (Yes, it's a juvenile pun, but this isn't The Met.) Then there's a BiP-style ring ceremony. The couples who stick around after that then perform for judges with huge backup bands until the winning musical lovebirds are left.
First male eliminated has to date Julia.
How much do I get as an Exec Producer?
