The Golden Bachelor has captivated millions of viewers. On top of falling for Gerry Turner, fans have come to love the golden bachelorettes. Faith Martin became an instant fan-favorite after making her grand entrance on the show via motorcycle. “I’m proof you can live fast and not die young,” the 61-year-old told Gerry. “And, if you leave here with me, it will be the ride of your life.”
Later on in the premiere, Faith played a song for Gerry, 72, on her guitar. Gerry was in awe of Faith and gave her the First Impression rose. “To me, this rose represents hope, hope that we can create something beautiful together and that’s the beginning,” she said. “And I felt so special.”
Faith has made it to the top 6 with Ellen Goltzer, Theresa Nist, Leslie Fhima, Sandra Mason, and Susan Noles. During the October 26 episode, Gerry will narrow down the contestants to his top 3 before heading out for hometown dates.
