Martha Stewart says that she’d be open to appearing on “The Golden Bachelor,” the “Bachelor” franchise spinoff for senior citizens, but only if she can check out the men that will be on the show first.

Stewart spoke with Variety in the wake of her Sports Illustrated swimsuit cover about her feelings towards joining a reality dating series. While — spoiler — the food icon feels pretty cool towards the prospect, she didn’t outright say no to joining the “Bachelor” franchise.

On Tuesday, ABC officially announced “The Golden Bachelor,” a dating show for those in their “golden years.” Variety asked the 81-year-old Stewart if she’d be down to join.

“If I get to see the men first,” Stewart replied.

ABC has yet to announce the “Golden man” who will star on “The Golden Bachelor,” as well as the cast of women with a “lifetime of experience” who will compete for his heart on the show. It’s not the first dating series of late to feature older-than-usual reality TV contestants — TLC’s “MILF Manor” also starred a cast of women in their 40s and 50s (and in the show’s less-than-shocking twist, their 20-something sons).

Stewart has been pretty candid about her dating prospects in the past, saying on the “Dear Chelsea” podcast in July 2022 that she’s not interested in being a “home-wrecker” and joking that she sometimes wished her friends would die so their partners would become available.

For now, though, Stewart isn’t interested in turning her brand into reality dating fare.

“I’m very busy,” she told Variety. “I have my beautiful cooking, entertaining, and gardening shows which I’m very interested in so I don’t think I would do a reality dating show.”
