When the Bachelorette Party was postponed to the next season, fans were curious where it would be filmed. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, several seasons of the series, as well as “The Bachelor”, were filmed in a safe bubble to minimize the risk of coronavirus infection of the actors and crew. Now that the pandemic-related restrictions have eased in most places, viewers are wondering about the venue for the new season.
When the production of the 16th season of The Bachelorette began, filming began in a bubble, and it was impossible to travel outside the United States due to the ongoing pandemic. This also applies to the 17th and 18th seasons of “Bachelor 25” and “Bachelorette Party”. However, in the 18th season of The Bachelor, quarantine restrictions were relaxed in the middle of the season. When the safety rules for the pandemic became more relaxed, many viewers wondered if the filming of the series would ever resume in the famous bachelor mansion.

When “The Bachelor 26” began airing, fans were delighted to see that it was filmed at Villa de la Vina, also known as “The Bachelor Mansion.” Fortunately, all restrictions related to the pandemic have been lifted. Gabby and Rachel’s season stands out because there are two women leading the lead roles in all episodes, and because the action was also captured in the iconic bachelor mansion. According to Cheatsheet, a trip abroad for The Bachelorette will also be an important aspect of the season.
The season’s commercials show the main characters and their suitors on a cruise ship bound for European ports, including Portsmouth, Le Havre, Bruges and Amsterdam. There are also rumors that segments of fantasy suites, as well as the final rose ceremony, will be held in Mexico. However, this has not been confirmed by the show’s production team. Viewers will have to watch the season to find out if this rumor is true.
Despite the fact that the pandemic is still a factor, filming can be done with fewer barriers, which makes filming easier in more traditional ways. According to reports, upcoming episodes of the show will first be filmed at the mansion before the rest of the “Bachelorette” season begins. It is unknown whether the mansion will be the central filming location for any upcoming seasons. However, for now, fans of the show don’t seem to have anything to worry about, as the beloved “Bachelor Mansion” seems to have become a filming location again, at least for now.
