"The Bachelorette" has found its home and roses are about to be handed out.
The ABC show has long been filmed at the "Bachelor Mansion" in Los Angeles (as has "The Bachelor"), but the coronavirus pandemic forced the location to change.
According to "Reality Steve" Carbone, Clare Crawley's season of the show will take place at La Quinta Resort & Club in La Quinta, Calif, which is just outside of Palm Springs. The potential suitors, Steve said, arrived earlier this week.
The Waldorf Astoria Resort — not to be confused with the budget-friendly chain of inns of a similar name — features 41 pools, 21 tennis courts and eight pickleball courts, according to the website. In addition, there are 22 types of rooms available, including a luxe 2,000 square-foot suite that features a hot tub and private pool. There is also, naturally, an array of flowers throughout the resort.
Not only was the filming location changed due to the pandemic, but so was the reality TV show's production schedule, as it was initially set to begin filming in mid-March.
In the new format, "The Bachelorette" will operate in a "bubble" type of environment, much like professional sports leagues in which everyone entering the premises is tested and prohibited from leaving the grounds until they are eliminated.
"We're going to be at one location, and everyone will be tested a week before, everyone comes back negative, we shoot and they're inside that bubble, basically," ABC exec Rob Mills said during a recent "On-Air with Ryan Seacrest" interview.
Unlike previous seasons in which dates were scattered across a multitude of locations, Clare's season will take place solely at the resort.
While ABC has not confirmed La Quinta as the show's location, a local ABC affiliate confirmed Reality Steve's news and also posted photos Wednesday of the resort blocked with barriers. Further, the resort isn't taking reservations until early September.
When "The Bachelorette" officially resumes, Clare will become the oldest woman to front the reality show. She previously appeared on Juan Pablo Galavis' season of "The Bachelor," on which she came in second. She also appeared on the first two seasons of "Bachelor in Paradise" and on "The Bachelor Winter Games."
