Oh, to find the love of your life on the postcard-perfect island of Bali.

Premiering four days before this year’s Valentine’s Day, HBO Asia Originals’ The Bachelor Indonesia is the country’s first local adaption of the popular American reality television dating game show.

Each season of The Bachelor follows a single bachelor searching for a spouse from a number of potential romantic interests.

The original show premiered in 2002 and spawned several spin-offs – including The Bachelorette – and was renewed for a 27th season in the US by ABC last May.
