Bachelor Peter the Pilot has a 4.5% chance of marrying someone his age

I’ve totally gone down the rabbit hole of numbers and ages and statistics and chances any particular bachelorette have of winning this season of The Bachelor. Peter the Pilot has already narrowed it down to 22 women (the season opened with 30 women at the mansion). Here’s what I’ve found working for or against the women so far…

Peter is 28 years old. Episode 1, there were 27 women younger than him. Two were his same age, and there’s 1 woman older than him (she’s 31).

Ages and chance of winning before episode 1 (30 women)…

20-25: 15 (50% chance of winning)

26-30: 14 (46.6% chance of winning)

30s: 1 (3.3% chance of winning)

20-27 (younger than Peter) : 27 (90% chance of winning)

28 (same age) : 2 (6.6% chance)

29-30s (older than Peter) : 1 (3.3% chance)


Ages and chance of winning before episode 2 (22 women)…

20-25: 12 (54.5% chance)

26-30: 9 (41% chance)

30s: 1 (4.5% chance)

20-27 (younger than Peter) : 20 (90.9% chance of winning, up nearly 1% since ep 1)

28 (same age) : 1 (4.5% chance of winning, down just over 2% since ep 1)

29-30s (older than Peter) : 1 (4.5% chance of winning, up 1.2% since ep 1)

Thanks for stopping by! If you have any guesses who might get the final rose, and how old she is, chime in with a comment below.

A black woman has a 27% chance of winning The Bachelor (after episode 1)

Peter the Pilot started off with 30 women who all apparently think he’s the perfect man to marry, or at least date for a few weeks on national TV. Among the 30 competitors, there were 7 black women, 20 white, and 3 were Asian.

During episode 1, there was a rose ceremony where 8 women were sent home. With that in mind, here are the numbers and a few statistics on the women still on the show.

Black women: 6 (down from 7 in ep 1)

Asian women: 2 (down from 3 in ep 1)

White women: 14 (down from 20 in ep 1)

Of the white women, 6 are brunette, 7 are blonde, and 1 is a red head.

These numbers compute the following stats…

A white woman has a 63.6% chance of winning, down 3% since ep 1.

A black woman has a 27.3% chance of winning, up 4% since ep 1.

An Asian woman has a 9.1% chance of winning, down 0.9% since ep 1.

A white woman has a 66% chance of winning the Bachelor this season

The new season is almost upon us and with all the busyness of the December holidays, episode 1 has definitely snuck up on me. This season has Peter in the cockpit with not 25, but 30!!!! ladies calmly buckled in as his love passengers. Does anyone know when they switched from 25 to 30 contestants? I mean, goodness gracious that’s a lot! I vaguely remember one season a few years back they promoted it as having 5 more than usual, but it seems like the norm to have 30 now.

Here’s a list of the contestants if you care to take a look.

Breaking it down by the numbers, there are 7 woman who look to be black or at least mixed race, 3 of Asian decent, and the rest white, 20.

Of those white ladies, 9 are brunette, 10 are blonde, and 1 is a red-head.

If my math is correct, and it rarely ever was in school, that gives a white woman around a 67% chance of winning, a black woman has a 23% chance, and the Asian ladies are at 10%. But numbers don’t really matter when it comes to love. Peter takes flight Monday night and I’m sure there will be dozens of flight/pilot/airline jokes so please return your seat to it’s upright position, turn off all your devices, and let’s fly the friendly skies of The Bachelor together.
