The Bachelorette, Cast

ABC

So you want to be a contestant on The Bachelor or The Bachelorette?

Or you don't, but you'd still like to know what it's like to be one? You've come to the right place! 

We here at E! News are doing our best to answer some of the most burning questions about what life is like on TV's most prolific dating show, and honestly, it doesn't sound all that fun. You get your phone taken away, you get no personal space, your free time is all spent in a house or a hotel room or a cold pool, and in all likelihood, you will get dumped. You've got about a 1/30 chance of not getting dumped, in fact. 

But on the bright side, you can eat pretty much whatever you want, so that's cool! 

Below, you'll find answers to what everyday life is like in the Mansion and beyond, from the packing to the food to the travel arrangements, and even some tips on keeping yourself alive in Bachelor Nation after your time on the show is over. 

Then, as you watch Hannah Brown begin her love-finding journey on Monday, you'll be able to follow along with what the guys are going through as the season goes on.

Now, reader, will you accept these answers?
