In any given season, the cast and crew of The Bachelor and The Bachelorette will set off to half a dozen destinations, visiting everywhere from the Bahamas to Peru to Bali. This year, travel restrictions kept the show in one place—Palm Springs, California. We spoke with host Chris Harrison about what a stationary season of the show looked like, where he hopes the franchise will go next, and his 2020 vacation plans.
Like many of us, those plans included a road trip. After spending two months in Palm Springs filming, Harrison drove across his home state of Texas and up into Oklahoma to visit college friends, a drive he says he could take in his sleep. Less familiar is his knowledge of cars themselves. “I don’t know how much a brake job costs, I don’t know how much a battery costs or when it needs to be changed,” he says.
