'The Bachelorette' 2022 Spoilers: Reality Steve Dispels Cruise Ship Filming Rumors

After Clayton Echard’s season of The Bachelor, fans are more than ready to see Gabby Windey and Rachel Recchia take over as the next leads of The Bachelorette 2022. However, it’s still unclear how the two women from Clayton’s season will share the spotlight as the leads. To make matters even more confusing, The Bachelorette 2022 spoilers from Reality Steve originally suggested filming may take place on a cruise ship, but he’s since dispelled them.

Where did they film ‘The Bachelorette’ 2021?

Bachelor Nation fans know The Bachelor mansion well. Clayton Echard’s cast stayed in the mansion located in Agoura Hills, California, in the Santa Monica Mountains of Malibu, The Sun reports. The mansion, which is named Villa de la Vina, was built back in 2004. It was sold in 2010 for $1.7 million. Today, the publication reports the property goes for around $4.4 million.

While The Bachelor and The Bachelorette production teams utilize the mansion for filming, the owner of the property, Marshall Haraden, reportedly lives there the rest of the year. “They’re here 42 days, twice a year,” Haraden told Us Weekly, according to The Sun.

Mansion aside, The Bachelorette 2021 had multiple filming locations. StyleCaster reports they filmed at the Renaissance Esmeralda Resort & Spa in Indian Wells, California; as well as the Marquette Hotel in Minneapolis, Minnesota; the Semple Mansion in Minneapolis, Minnesota; and the Iberostar Hotel in Punta de Mita, Mexico.

‘The Bachelorette’ 2022 spoilers: Reality Steve no longer suggests filming may take place on a cruise ship

So, where will Rachel Recchia and Gabby Windey have their season filmed? According to The Bachelorette 2022 spoilers early on, the leading ladies might head out on a cruise.

ScreenRant reports spoiler guru Reality Steve has details. He claims a copy of an email from Virgin Cruise Lines states an American TV company approached the cruise line to buy three weeks on the entire cruise ship. Reality Steve notes the TV company allegedly wanted to pay “over the odds for the entire ship for three weeks.” It seems this would happen in April 2022. This fits the show’s filming schedule.

So, did The Bachelorette producers approach Virgin Cruise Lines? Reality Steve notes he doesn’t know for sure. But given the timeline and production’s desire to do something different this season, it could happen.

An update from Reality Steve on March 24, 2022, gives a different story, though. He reports the cast heads to Paris after Los Angeles. From there, he doubts production brings in a cruise ship. The producers of The Love Boat, a different reality series, likely booked the cruise.

“That would only leave one episode since I doubt they’re going to Paris then turning right back around and coming to the states for cruise filming,” he wrote. “Could that email be in reference to filming the new Love Boat reality dating show that just got picked up? We just don’t know yet. I haven’t heard any confirmation on the cruise ship being for Bachelorette filming. If I do, I’ll let you know.”

Will Jesse Palmer host ‘The Bachelorette’ 2022?

Fans hoping to see Kaitlyn Bristowe and Tayshia Adams back at the helm will be disappointed. Jesse Palmer, the host of Clayton Echard’s season, will reportedly host The Bachelorette 2022.

“The decision came at some point throughout this past season that Jesse was a safe choice for the next Bachelorette season,” a source told Us Weekly. “They’re still testing him out for a more permanent role, just like they tested out Tayshia and Kaitlyn for two seasons.”

According to the source, ABC wants “Chris Harrison-style” hosting back on the table, and Palmer seems to deliver. It’s unclear who will host Bachelor in Paradise Season 8. We also don’t know if fans will see Bristowe and Adams again within the franchise in the future.
