Bachelor in the house
RESIDENTS of a posh northern Sydney suburb may be surprised when TV cameras, lights and a line of tanned, primped ladies swarm into one of the area’s most expensive properties. It’s all for the inaugural series of The Bachelor Australia, based on the US version of the hit reality dating show. Residents in Bayview, on Sydney’s northern beaches, received letters from production company Shine Australia to say filming at a nearby multi-million dollar mansion has been scheduled over about 23 days, ending September 15. The show, which has 25 women striving to win the heart of an as yet-unnamed bachelor, has been commissioned by Channel 10.
