40 Behind The Scenes Facts About The Bachelor
The First Rose Ceremony Can Last 12 Hours
Have you ever noticed the faint glow of daylight (or full glow of full-on morning) rising over the Bachelor mansion as contestants are eliminated on night one? Yeah, that isn’t just really good ABC light technicians. The first rose ceremony (and the whole first evening) can take twelve hours to film. There have been times contestants would arrive at 7 PM and leave at 6 AM the following morning. This helps emotions to run super, super high on night one, as the women just keep pounding back white wine spritzers and fighting sleep deprivation.
