The Bachelor: Behind the Scenes Airs Sunday, January 12 — What to Expect!
Your dance card is looking pretty full for the next few weeks. The culprit for your calendar takeover? The Bachelor, of course, as ABC launched a series of hard-hitting journalism called "Juan-uary" (Puns!) in honor the show's 18th season.
First there was The Bachelor: Countdown to Juan Pablo, which aired Sunday, January 5, 2014 and featured producers and Chris Harrison surprising girls who got on the show, as well as giving an insight into the shenanigans of the show. The following day, January 6, we were all glued to our screens for Juan Pablo Galavis's big Bachelor 2014 debut. There were tears, cheers, and jeers all around as we watched him brutally rebuff the advances of a third of his lady loos.
Next up in this crazy month is The Bachelor: Behind the Scenes special, which ABC will air from 8 to 9 pm. on Sunday, January 12, giving viewers a look behind the scenes of JP's journey. According to the press release, we'll start out on board the "Bachelor Bus" as Rosemaster Chris and Juan Pablo surprise fans by crashing Bachelor viewing parties. Cool, but nothing we haven't seen before.
But then ABC gives us a peek at the "emotionally charged" day after the first rose ceremony. We're guessing drinking might be involved. (And a review of their lives, perhaps.) Always wanted to know what it's like to move in to Bachelor Mansion? They've got you covered, as cameras will follow the 18 girls as they unpack, explain why they're not there to make friends, and strain the pool of last season's shame leaves.
Also showing up for a good time are the poor producers (read: hapless interns) who "turn a hot dusty California field into a magical, snowy winter wonderland for Juan Pablo's first date." The synopsis reveals that before the date, JPG and 4-year-old daughter Camila busted out their skates on the private ice-skating rink. And thanks to the magic of snow blowers, she got to see snow for the very first time. The verdict? She's "thrilled," of course.
If snow blowing and weather changing ain't enough for you, you'll also get more insight into the inner workings of some of the women, and a sneak peek at Episode 2 — which airs the next night on Monday, January 13.
