‘The Golden Bachelorette’: Joan Vassos Announced as First-Ever Lead


Joan Vassos is the inaugural Golden Bachelorette! On Tuesday, ABC announced that Gerry Turner’s ex will lead the first-ever season of The Golden Bachelorette when it premieres this fall.

Joan was a beloved contestant on The Golden Bachelor, especially after she self-eliminated from the show when a medical concern with her daughter arose.

Now, the 61-year-old grandmother and school administrator from Rockland, Maryland, is back to star in her own love story. She’ll bring her signature grace and charm as she embarks on a search for her next person, showcasing that everyone is worthy of more than just a second chance at love.

Joan, whose husband died after 32 years of marriage, is a remarkable woman whose life has been defined by her resilience, zest for adventure and strong family values.

She remains an embodiment of strength and grace as a devoted mother of four and grandmother of two, while finding solace in the music of Elton John, spending time with her dog, and cooking.

Now, as she steps into the golden spotlight and begins her journey to seek love once more, Joan envisions a future filled with shared moments by the beach and cherished time with family.

The Golden Bachelorette will air Wednesdays this fall on ABC.
