NO ONE EATS ON DATES

“No­body likes talk­ing with their mouth full,” says Courtney Robert­son (with Ben Fla­jnik on sea­son 16). In­stead, pro­duc­ers of­ten give con­tes­tants food be­fore a big date so view­ers don’t have to hear par­tic­i­pants chew!

ROSE CER­E­MONIES TAKE FOR­EVER TO FILM

Sea­son 17’s Sean Lowe calls them “ex­haust­ing.” While we only see a few sec­onds of each hand­off on TV, there can be five min­utes be­tween each rose be­cause 15 cam­eras have to re­po­si­tion. Says Sean: “That first night lasts un­til 7 a.m.”

A REAL FAM­ILY LIVES IN THE BACH­E­LOR MAN­SION

“They move out, the show films, and they move back in,” says Pey­ton Wright Lambton, who vied for Andy Bald­win’s heart on sea­son 10. “I took a tour one day and the pro­ducer was like, ‘That’s the lit­tle girl’s room.’”

A for­mer Bach­e­lor star says a shrink eval­u­ates each con­tes­tant. Once they’re elim­i­nated, “The ther­a­pist is sent back to make sure they’re OK.” Sea­son six’s Ali Fe­do­towsky (above) sure needed a ses­sion!

BOOZE IS AL­WAYS FLOW­ING

Jor­dan Branch (sea­son 19) blamed her drunken be­hav­ior with Chris Soules on Bach­e­lor pro­duc­ers, claim­ing they ma­nip­u­lated con­tes­tants by con­stantly re­fresh­ing their glasses.

CON­TES­TANTS HAVE TO BE CAMERA-READY 24/7

Fans took note when sea­son 19’s Chris Soules woke up Britt Nils­son at 4: 30 a.m. for an early-morn­ing bal­loon ride (above) and she was in full makeup. Her red lip­stick wasn’t even smudged!
