The two most notable cases where the bachelor violated the premise of the show are Brad Womack, who selected neither of his final two women, and Jason Mesnick, who in the After the Final Rose episode broke off his engagement and several months later proposed (offscreen) to the first runner-up.
(The two are now married.) For the first two weeks of filming the contestants stay in "Villa De La Vina," a 7,590-square-foot (705 m), six-bedroom, nine-bath home in Agoura Hills, California.
The custom home, built in 2005, is located on 10 acres at 2351 Kanan Road.
The final third of the episodes within a season are filmed traveling the world.
Episodes have been filmed throughout the United States; Canada; England; New Zealand; Vietnam; and Korea to name just a few.
The Agoura Hills, California mansion has not been used on several occasions, including during season 7- where filming took place in New York City, home of Charlie O'Connell, who had appeared in Sliders with his brother Jerry O'Connell; Paris, France for season 8; and Rome, Italy- where Lorenzo Borghese, who is half Italian, lived- for season 9.
On each Bachelor episode, the bachelor interacts with the women and presents a rose to each woman he wishes to remain on the show. Eliminations are based upon the bachelor's personal feelings about each contestant, guided primarily by the impression made by each woman during dates or other events of the week.
Most roses are presented at a rose ceremony at the end of each episode, but roses can also be bestowed on dates.
Typical activities include If a rose is at stake on a date, the participating women pack their suitcases in case they fail to receive a rose.The other women learn that a woman has been eliminated when that woman's suitcase is taken away by a crew member.The Bachelor is an American reality television dating game show that debuted on March 25, 2002, on ABC. The show's success has resulted in several spin-offs including The Bachelorette, Bachelor Pad, and Bachelor in Paradise.As the show is designed, the series revolves around a single bachelor (deemed eligible) who starts with a pool of romantic interests (typically 25) from whom the bachelor is expected to select a wife.During the course of the season, the bachelor eliminates candidates (see The elimination process), with the bachelor proposing marriage to his final selection.The participants travel to romantic and exotic locations for their adventures, and the conflicts in the series, both internal and external, stem from the elimination-style format of the show. In practice, the show does not always follow its designed structure, and those variations are often a source of drama and conflict.
