- The Bachelor -Where Did They Film Michelle's Season Of 'The Bachelorette'?
It's been, checks watch, just about four hours since the last season of a Bachelor franchise show ended, which means it is time to wrangle together a new cast in hopes of finding Michelle Young a fiancé. For the franchise's first time since Peter Weber's season, The Bachelorette is leaving its bubble and traveling again. Michelle's season will kick off a more "normal" "love story" unfolding in the "real" "world," with stops all around the globe.
Among the more tropical locations will be the more traditional, fan-friendly spot of Michelle's home state. Let's take a look at where we can expect Michelle's season of The Bachelorette to film, all starting in...
Indian Wells, Calif.
The season will kick off in Indian Wells, Calif., which is about a 15 minute drive from the infamous La Quinta. Expect dry and warm weather conditions, as Michelle's season began filming in late July when the average high temperature was 94 degrees. If you are interested in your own Bachelor-inspired vacation, you can stay at the same resort the cast filmed at — the Renaissance Esmeralda Resort & Spa — for about $350 a night for a standard King room. Next up...
If after a tiresome week in Indian Wells you need to rest your head, check out the Marquette Hotel in Minneapolis. According to Reality Steve, Michelle's men will get the trip of a lifetime to Minneapolis if they make it far enough. Michelle is from Minnesota, and currently lives there, so this pit stop on the way makes sense (especially if we're going to get a date with her students... we all know it's bound to happen). According to Reality Steve, the show filmed all around the city: The Stone Arch Bridge, Wayzata Beach, U.S. Bank Stadium, Michelle’s parents’ house, The Mill City Museum, Lake Minnetonka, Lord Fletcher’s on Lake Minnetonka, and Target Field.
Grab your passport because we're going to...
They're baaack. After COVID took away the highly-anticipated hometown dates, leaving some family members stuck in a junior suite adjacent to a rotating cast of guest hosts, Michelle's season will welcome back the hometown dates in the final four men's cities. And then after that, we're going to...
Punta de Mita, Mexico
Reality Steve says that the fantasy suite dates and the final rose ceremony will be located in Punta de Mita, Mexico, which is not far from Puerto Vallarta. While the hotel they stayed at is unclear, Michelle and a certain gentleman were seen jet skiing near the Iberostar Selection resort, which sounds like the perfect place to end your excursion.
While we're still not doing the typical and jet setting all over the world (we'll have to wait for Clayton's season for that), I am happy to be "traveling" the continental United States and Mexico with Michelle and her gentlemen callers!
