'The Bachelor' Winter Games Films in Vermont (behind the scenes pics)
Dozens of international and USA contestants from past versions of 'The Bachelor' and 'The Bachelorette' escaped to the beautiful Vermont mountains for a couple weeks of winter shenanigans last December. Filming took place around Southern Vermont with scenes shot in Manchester, Dover and Wilmington, VT. The format was a winter sports style competition, with classic Bachelor love games thrown in for fun and chaos, of course!
We heard rumors of some figure skating (maybe speed skating?), skiing (of course), and many late nights spent around the fireplace at their Bachelor pad in Wilmington, VT.
Our team was there for the Opening Celebration parade in Manchester, VT and captured a few behind the scenes pics:
Keep an eye out for the amazing new recording artist Ruthie Collins who opened the show with a truly incredible live performance to cap off the Opening Celebration parade.
Bachelor host Chris Harrison kicked things off alongside co-host Hannah Storm, and the OG bachelor couple Ryan and Trista.
The American team had more contestants than any other (naturally) but there was definitely some international chemistry happening right from the start!
The entire Bachelor cast and crew were incredibly sweet, posing to take photos with locals in the office that they took over as their green room.
Of the 20+ contestants that began the games, only two made it to the final romantic dinner date where the candles were blazing and love was in the air with the Bachelor from ..... and the Bachelorette from ..... (come on, you know we can't say!). But since you read this far, we will tell you that one of them is from a North American team. And here's another piece of secret info that no one knows yet: the final location. The date was filmed inside a picturesque historic Vermont home at the West Dover Inn in Dover, VT. Maybe they will share the juicy details?
'The Bachelor Winter Games' will start airing on ABC on Feb 13th at 8pm.
