Joey's Bachelor filming locations include a historic franchise attraction

Joey Graziadei is embarking on his Bachelor journey, which Bachelor Nation represents, referring to the process of (hopefully) finding a life partner among the 32 women vying for his heart. But this symbolic journey also encompasses the real one: a trek from his bachelor mansion in Agoura Hills, California, to several romantic destinations around the world.

Travel is a long-standing part of the bachelor/female experience. The show's format requires contestants to fall in love quickly, and a one-on-one date in a faraway fairytale city can only help that.

However, recent iterations of "Bachelor Nation" have featured less international travel: Charity Lawson's season of "The Bachelorette," for example, stayed in domestic destinations except for an overnight stay in Fiji. Gerry Turner's season of The Bachelor didn't leave Southern California before returning home, but it eventually brought its finale to Costa Rica.

Joey's season largely revived the tradition of franchise travel. Here's a look back at the Joey's Bachelor filming locations you can expect to see in Season 28, Reality Steve reports.


According to the Bachelor Nation blogger, three rose ceremonies later, Joey's season was moved from California to Malta. Group dates here, he writes, included Joey fighting swords and catching sausages in his mouth with the women. (A clip of it appeared in the Season 28 trailer, and, uh, it's weirder than it sounds?)



The next stop was reportedly Malaga, Spain, where Joey and his remaining women explored cities like Marbella and Ronda. According to a throwback video on Joey's Instagram, he's been to the province before! But it's safe to say the area now takes on new meaning for him.


According to Reality Steve , the show traveled to several locations in Canada before returning home. First is Montreal, Quebec, followed by Jasper, Alberta, which includes horseback riding and polar diving.



After returning to his hometown (if you want spoilers, here are the spoilers!), Joey and his last three women reportedly went to Tulum, Mexico for a night and a final rose ceremony.

Tulum was actually where the first season of Bachelor in Paradise was filmed, before the beach show moved to the Escondida Beach Resort in Sayulita, Mexico for the remainder of its run. So, look forward to the full itinerary for Joey’s single season!

“It’s a lot,” Jesse Palmer said in a recent interview with GQ . The Bachelor host added that he was on "six planes in seven days" this fall balancing a rose ceremony with college football. It sounds like it'll all be worth it, as Jesse teases, this will be "the most romantic season in Bachelor history."
