The Bachelorette Season Premiere Didn’t Film at the Bachelor Mansion (!) — Find Out Why

The Bachelorette has a new leading lady… and a new home, too.

Monday’s season premiere of ABC’s reality dating show (8/7c), with Bachelor alum Jenn Tran handing out the roses, was not filmed at the familiar “Bachelor mansion,” TVLine has confirmed. Instead, the episode was filmed at Hummingbird Nest Ranch in Simi Valley, California. A source tells TVLine the change was due to the season’s shooting schedule, which had Jenn and her men jetting off to Australia right after the premiere.

The traditional Bachelor mansion is located in Agoura Hills, California, and is actually owned and lived in by Marshall Haraden and his family; ABC merely rents the residence each year for 42 days for its shoots. The Mediterranean-style house has been home to The Bachelor since Season 11, aside from the COVID pandemic forcing a move to hotels for several seasons beginning in 2020.

“Setting the stage for romance and a history-making season,” Monday’s premiere “will unfold at a new mansion before Jenn and her men grab their passports for exotic locales, including Australia, New Zealand and beyond,” per the official synopsis.
