There’s a brand new mansion for season nine of The Bachelor and folks, we’ve seen it before: it’s the former home of Beauty And The Geek.

The mansion, dubbed ‘Le Chateau’, is the new home of Bachie, writes The Wash. It’s a European manor-style estate in Dural in Sydney’s Hills District, 36 kilometres NW of the CBD. And it’s ritzy! In a lots of white carpet kind of way!

Bachie production staff were apparently spotted on Monday styling the estate with fake flowers in preparation for filming on the new season.

Worth $6.3 million when it was last sold in 2013, the mansion on a five-acre estate has five bedrooms, 12 bathrooms, a theatre, a heated indoor pool and spa, a gym, an orchard (there must be an orchard on The Bachelor, for the DRAMA) and a tennis court.

That’s definitely a level up from the last two mansions’ fitness options, according to former Bachie contestants Laura Byrne and Brittany Hockley on their podcast Life Uncut.

Brittany said the ‘gym’ at the mansion in Sydney’s Oxford Falls, where the last three seasons were filmed, was actually just the alpaca shed with some exercise equipment inside. The gym on Laura’s season, in Sydney’s Glenorie, meanwhile was just a garage.

The Bachelor mansion was originally in Bayview on the Northern Beaches, before moving to Hunters Hill on the Lower North Shore for seasons two to three, Glenorie in the Hills District for seasons four and five, and Oxford Falls on the Northern Beaches for seasons six to eight.

Let’s have a squiz inside, shall we?

Not an alpaca in sight, devastating.

The Bachelor is back for season nine later this year, with a mystery suitor at the helm. He’s apparently both a regular bloke and the “most eligible bachelor” ever.

Channel 10’s Head Of Programming Daniel Monaghan told TV Tonight earlier this month that Aussies wouldn’t be familiar with their chosen Bachie.

“Not yet. But you will, and I think he’s a fantastic get for the franchise,” he said.

“We’re really happy with who has signed onto The Bachelor. Australia will be very happy with our gentleman,” he said.

He added that the phrase “most eligible bachelor” was deliberately ambiguous. “I think we’ll deliver on that. It’s open to interpretation, which is why it’s such a good phrase! Maybe you can be more desirable, for whatever reason….”

That probably means the Tommy Little rumour isn’t true. Someone is lying is what I’m saying.
