The Bachelor 10 currently in production in Los Angeles

The next season of ABC’s The Bachelor is currently in production in Los Angeles, The New York Daily News’ Ben Widdicombe reports.

His “spy” says, “They’re filming the next season of ‘The Bachelor’ at the pool here. All the contestants were running around doing some kind of a triathlon.” The location is the Loews Santa Monica Beach Hotel, and the bachelor Andy Baldwin is a triathlete and in the Navy, hence, apparently, the triathlon competition.

The spy also claims that Baldwin “was standing there filming a segment where he was swimming. When he was all done, and the cameras were off, he pulled a sock out of his swimsuit.” But why would he do that in public, even if the cameras were off? Would he want the women and/or the crew to know that he was augmenting his assets?

Eaten Alive

Discovery Channel’s happy family holiday special Eaten Alive aired Sunday, rewarding viewers for their two full hours of viewing by ensuring that they spent quality time in the company of others instead of wasting that time doing something else that might not have been as satisfying, such as buying things that have labels which accurately reflect their contents.
