The third season of The Bachelor premiered January 1, 2018. This season featured 29 year-old Adam Koziel, a paramedic from Florence, SC. Koziel is known for making it all the way to the end of Hallie Hickman's season but having his proposal to Hickman rejected.

On April 9, 2018, Cailyn Ellison, a 28 year-old dental hygienist from Portland, PA, was announced as the winner of the season.
