There was a little bit of a scary situation that unfolded yesterday during the filming for the upcoming spring season of “The Bachelor,” but the good news that we are hearing now is that despite this incident, there are no major injuries and everyone is emerging just fine.
So what exactly happened? There are not too many details available at the moment (including the setting, given that the show is in the process of filming around the world), but executive producer Mike Fleiss shared the following message on his Twitter to give an update not just on the condition of the parties involved, but to also shell out what is a pretty interesting tease about the season as a whole:
“Sean and several of my beloved producers were in a car accident yesterday. Thank God everyone is OK … We’ve had more emergencies this season than ever… Whew!”
ABC has already announced the female contestants who are in the running for the final rose in a rare move considering that they have never done this before so early, and the show will probably launch on January 8, at least based on the schedule that they have followed for some of the other seasons in the past. Really now, the major questions that remain simply involve whether or not Sean will be capable leading man for the show, and whether he will pick someone that gives him a chance at happiness longer than either Ben Flajnik or Emily Maynard did from their own respective seasons.
Stay tuned, as we will of course have even more official scoop (but not spoilers) from Sean’s season as soon as it becomes available. If you do want to see a few more pictures of Sean shirtless (and there are probably some people out there who do), all you have to do is visit the story here.
