While we’re sure Canada is romantic and all, something about a climate that doesn’t invite constant nudity just doesn’t seem to mesh well with The Bachelor. To put it plainly, Sean Lowe looks about 194% better without a shirt on.

So, based on our incredibly well-researched statistics, we figured the next place the ABC entourage headed would have a little more naked beauty. Cue the airplanes, guys, because The Bachelor is heading south. Reality Steve confirmed this relocation as the (not so) Virgin Island of St. Croix, where the crew will be taping the next segment of dates.

While filming just began this weekend, locals St Croix Libation Society are tweeting up an irreverent tropical storm about the show’s stint on the island. Tweets started out jokingly: “So The Bachelor is set to begin filming on STX, but we’re not allowed to talk about it. #Oops,” and playfully riffed on the show’s infamous send offs with “The Bachelor filming at beautiful Buck Island today. Dismissed contestants being fed to local barracuda.”

Some hints at dates that will be taking place in St. Croix? Apparently, they’re “filming a totally authentic and not at all made up mock “carnival parade” tomorrow!” the STX Libation Society reports, adding “Should we make it a summer jouvet?” Another tweet suggests that a helicopter ride is in Sean’s future (pretty standard on these dates — but we can’t wait to find out who the lucky lady will be), but other posts mentioned trouble in paradise.

The handle lashed out at The Bachelor, sayingWhile we welcome @bachelorabc to STX, local business's also need to get paid. Enough with this "free rooms/services" for publicity crap.” Hmm, sounds like not everything in the islands is rosey...
