It looks like Bachelor Nation will be taking over Coachella Valley this summer. 

Thanks to reality TV expert spoiler Steve Carbone, aka Reality Steve, we have new details on The Bachelorette’s production and cast. 

After Rob Mills, ABC’s vice president of alternative programming, revealed that Clare Crawley’s season will film in quarantine at one location starting in July, Carbone took to Twitter to share his insider production information.

“I’m hearing that Clare, cast, & crew will arrive in Palm Springs, CA around July 9th/10th, everyone will be quarantined for a week, then filming will begin around the 17th,” he wrote. “The resort where the whole season will be filmed, I believe, is the Ritz Carlton Rancho Mirage.”

Carbone backed up his claims with images of the resort’s calendar, which shows that bookings are blocked off through August 27th. That would give the show almost 9 weeks on site. 

In terms of casting, Carbone tweeted to expect some changes since the show released the original 32 men in March. According to Carbone, at least some of the men have been recast.

“They did recast. How many? I don’t know if it’s 5, 10, half the cast? Of new names I have, they definitely went older, so that’s good I guess,” he shared.

Bringing on older suitors would keep in line with the show’s aim to feature a more mature cast than that of former Bachelor Peter Weber, whose season received criticism from fans and former cast members. Crawley, 39, is 11 years Weber’s senior and has said she’s looking for a potential husband who knows who he is and what he wants.
