40 Behind The Scenes Facts About The Bachelor
The Dates Are A Surprise To The Leads, Too
The Bachelor or Bachelorette doesn’t get to plan their elaborate dates. In fact, the day’s festivities are as much of a surprise to the season’s lead as it is to the contestants. The lead doesn’t find out where the date is or what they’ll be doing until the morning of, or occasionally the day before. Desiree Siegfried admitted to Women’s Health that the lead does get to pick who goes on the dates, even though producers will give their suggestions in the beginning, but everything else is up to ABC.
