There is a link at the top of the page entitled “Bachelor Ben’s Girls” that will keep a running list every time I add new girls. Today’s girl has been added.
A few quick updates to give you on what’s happening in filming. If you missed my tweet and Facebook post last Friday afternoon, then you didn’t see filming moved from San Francisco to Park City, Utah. They arrived in Park City on Saturday, and I’m guessing are there until Wednesday or Thursday of this week, before they start their major traveling this season. Do I know where they are headed? Yes, I do. I will tell you as they they move from place to place though. Thursday I will tell you where they are headed from Utah. I can tell you this though, in the 22 seasons this show has been on, I can’t remember a final rose ceremony location quite like this. Going to be interesting. More on that in the coming weeks.
Anyway, the Canyons Resort in Park City is where tonight’s date will take place. I’m assuming it’s a 1-on-1 date since there’s a concert being put on by Clay Walker, and usually dates that have concerts are 1-on-1′s. In fact, you can even attend this date. On Friday, the Canyons Resort FB page posted on their wall they were looking for extras for this concert. Yesterday, they updated that status. Here’s what they wrote:
“Hey Everyone, ABC has changed the start time of the Clay Walker concert/TV taping on Tuesday night to 11:15pm. Please pass along to everyone that is coming! Thanks.
Would anyone like to be on TV? Talisker and The Canyons Resort will be hosting the taping of an ABC TV show that will air in January 2012. Part of this episode will be a free performance by Country Music Star, Clay Walker, owner of six #1 hits. The performance and taping of the show will take place the night of Tuesday, October 4th at approximately 11:15pm on the Ski Beach stage at Canyons Resort. The production company is looking for extras to be a part of the show taping and that is where you come in! We are inviting staff, friends and family to attend and be part of the show. Guests are to park in the Sundial Hotel gravel lot and meet in the Grand Summit’s Kokopelli ballroom for registration at 10:00pm Tuesday evening. Guests will be required to complete a confidentiality agreement before heading to the stage on the Ski Beach. Please dress warmly as the temperatures in the evening could be in the lower 40s. No photographs will be allowed.
If you are interested, please RSVP to Caitlin Martz at firstname.lastname@example.org by 4:00pm on Monday, October 3rd.”
So I’m sure by tomorrow I’ll have been notified which girl Ben took on this date. I’ll either post it tomorrow, or just wait til Thursday. Up to this point, I’ve pretty much got every 1-on-1 date nailed down. Slowly but surely, I’ll start filling everyone in on whose been going on these dates and what’s been happening. I currently have 19 of the 25 girls names, but some I don’t have last names or pictures of yet. Just waiting for those to arrive, then I will fill you in accordingly.
As for today, here’s another contestant I can confirm.
8. Samantha Levey: 26, from Pittsburgh, lives in LA, went to the University of Arizona (like Ben), current Miss Pacific Palisades, CA 2012, will be competing for Miss California 2012. I must say any chances of her winning Miss California probably are gonna take a major hit once the judges see she went on this silly show. In the Sonoma Plaza group date, she is on the bottom row, second girl in from the right in the black top, next to the redhead. She’s also in the all white bikini on the skiing group date. Plenty of pics you can google of her online, but here are a couple:
Found this video online of her as well talking at some town meeting. Well, rambling is more like it:
One last thing to update you on regarding filming last week in San Francisco. One of the shows producers, Robert Mills, tweeted a picture Friday night of Chris Harrison in front of the Fairmont Hotel in San Francisco (where the rose ceremony took place) with the caption, “Everything is about to change.” I’m well aware of what he’s referring to. However, I’m not ready to release it yet until I know the full details behind it. Lets just say it’s been a while since this franchise has done something like this. But yes, it has happened before.
