Senior TV Star Gerry Turner Signs with Gersh, Launching New Chapter in His Career

CARMEL, Ind. – Gersh, a talent agency, has recently announced the signing of Gerry Turner, the Indiana native who gained popularity as the star of ABC’s “The Golden Bachelor.” Turner, a 72-year-old television personality and entrepreneur, captivated audiences on the senior-focused spin-off of “The Bachelor” following the tragic loss of his wife in 2017. After retiring in 2007, Turner went on to earn certification as a mediator and conducted mediations for various cases.

Turner’s appearance on “The Golden Bachelor” proved to be a success for ABC, as it garnered the largest multi-platform audience for any season premiere in the “Bachelor” franchise in the past three years. The show continued to attract viewers, setting a streaming record for ABC on Hulu during its first 35 days.

At the end of his season, Turner found love and got engaged to Theresa Nist, a financial services professional from New Jersey. Their journey culminated in a live ABC special, where they tied the knot earlier this month.

Gersh’s signing of Turner is part of the agency’s recent expansion in the alternative entertainment industry. They have also added Cineflix Productions as a new client. This move follows Gersh’s acquisition of A3’s Alternative and Digital departments earlier this month as they continue to pursue global growth.

Turner’s story of love and resilience has captured the hearts of many viewers, and his signing with Gersh is a testament to his rising popularity.
