Did you watch ABC’s The Bachelor 16 premier on Monday, January 2, 2012? All eyes are back on ABC as Belize starts to follow Bachelor Ben Flajnik’s journey in finding a wife. The reality dating show premiered this week with Ben meeting the 23 ladies contending for his heart.
But what all of the country is waiting for is Belize’s feature on the show. Ben Flajnik and his six dates arrived in Belize on Wednesday, October 19, 2011, to enjoy an island getaway and experience exotic dates in Belize (above pictures shows them arriving in San Pedro, Ambergris Caye, Belize). According to Reality Steve (spoiler), the Belize episode should air around episode seven of this new season of the Bachelor, roughly around mid February. Don’t worry, Ambergris Today will be keeping tabs on the show and letting you know when the Belize episode airs.
But if you want, you can start following the story of Ben and his bevy of ladies leading up to his trip to Belize and proposal at the end of the season. The Bachelor airs on ABC every Monday at 7p.m. local channel 17 here in San Pedro.
Watching highlights of the season, we can tell that, while in Belize, Bachelor Ben goes on a group date at Shark Ray Alley at the Hol Chan Marine Reserve, has an exotic date atop the magnificent Maya Ruins of Lamanai in the Orange Walk District, jumps from a helicopter into the Great Blue Hole of Belize located in the coral reef atoll of Lighthouse Reef, goes on dates on board sailing boats and a day trip to the neighboring island of Caye Caulker, among other great adventures and dinner dates at popular resorts/restaurants in Ambergris Caye.
The show is really big and generates from 10 to 20 million viewers per week in the United States alone. It’s a great opportunity for all of us and we will surely be watching along with the rest of the world as they see The Bachelor tour Belize.
