The Bachelor Mansion will bounce back. In a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Bachelor host Chris Harrison said the Bachelor franchise could return to the Bachelor Mansion as early as the next season of The Bachelorette. Though the property was affected by the Woolsey Fire, the Agoura Hills abode remains intact, and it sounds like the residence the dating competition series has called home for over a decade will be camera ready soon.
Harrison explained to THR,
The Woolsey Fire was one of several wildfires that hit California last month, tearing through a list of cities that includes Malibu, Thousand Oaks, and Agoura Hills. The Bachelor Mansion was in danger, but contrary to initial reports, it did not burn down. As Marshall Haraden, the owner of the Bachelor Mansion, told Us Weekly,
He also went on to assure Us Weekly that the fire damage is "not going to interrupt the show." As Haraden joked to Entertainment Tonight, "Chris, you got nothing to worry about. I got your back."
The Bachelor Mansion is still standing, and it is reportedly thanks in part to the Haraden family’s neighbors. When 16-year-old Ava Friedman and her father returned to their home after evacuating, they saw that their next-door neighbors’ property was in flames. They acted fast and found the nearest firefighters and pointed them in the direction of the Haradens’ house. Friedman told Entertainment Tonight, "We wanted to get this fire out as quickly as possible… so we got into our car and we tried to catch the attention of a fire engine.” She noted that the firefighters put out the flames “as soon as we told them this.”
Friedman went on,
Hats off to that.
Harrison’s determination to get The Bachelor franchise back in the Bachelor Mansion is not just about series tradition, but supporting an area that was ravaged by a wildfire. He said to THR,
How about those for some right reasons.
