It’s that time of the year again — leaves are falling from the trees, an extra blanket gets thrown onto the bed at night, and 25 women are lining up to woo the next Bachelor into a marriage proposal.

But when does filming at Bachelor Mansion actually begin? According to Reality Steve, our fair Bachelor Sean Lowe flies from his hometown of Dallas to Los Angeles on Monday, September 17, the ladies begin arriving on Friday, September 21, and filming begins on Monday, September 24th. That so soon! You know what that means: Chris Harrison should start probably start stocking up on hair product right about now.  

We still don’t know when The Bachelor 2013 will air, but if Season 17 is anything like the seasons before it, expect Sean and his harem of hotties to grace TV screens sometime in early January.
