Chris Soules will start his journey to find love on January 5, and many fans will be able to watch every episode of ABC's popular reality show live streaming on their computer, tablet, or smartphone.
The three-hour season premiere starts at 8 p.m. ET on on ABC, with E! Online reporting that this is the first time in the Bachelor franchise's 18-season history that a premiere will broadcast live.

If you aren't able to watch The Bachelor live online or on your local ABC channel on television, head over to Twitter to get the latest commentary (often hilarious) and updates about the show.

[Spoilers ahead] Although Chris Soules' journey to find love starts on January 5, filming for Season 19 wrapped up several weeks ago. Blogger Reality Steve revealed a few details about the premiere (there will be 30 girls instead of the normal 25-27) and the final rose ceremony (Chris gets engaged.)
Chris told People magazine last month that he is in love with one of the 30 girls who came on the show for love (or fame?). He did not spill the details on who the lucky lady is, but Reality Steve is certain that Chris' final pick is Whitney Bischoff, a registered nurse at the Fertility Centers of Illinois.
Steve seems to be quite certain about who Chris Soules picks at the final rose ceremony. However, the Inquisitr previously reported that Reality Steve has yet to spoil a number of episodes between the premiere and the finale, leaving fans to figure out most of the 2015 season of the Bachelor out the old fashioned way — by watching it.
Tune in to the three-hour season premiere of The Bachelor at 8 p.m. on Monday, January 5 on your local ABC channel, or via ABC's live streaming app.
