Unfortunately, the season has been postponed due to to the coronavirus pandemic. The quarantine and “stay at home” orders are preventing shows from filming, but all hope isn’t lost.
When things finally go back to normal and it is safe to leave the comfort of our home, the franchise plans to move forward with Crawley’s highly-anticipated season.
“Until we can do this show and do it safely, we won’t do it,” longtime host Chris Harrison told People. “Right now, we are just on hold and it’s being postponed. But we’re all chomping at the bit to get back to it and to have Clare be our Bachelorette.”
“If you use your common sense, you have to think, ‘Okay, out of all these people, are they all going to be healthy?’ You pray to God that they all are, but what happens if some of these people are infected? What happens if some of them get severely sick? I mean, Colton [Underwood] went down, so once the smoke clears and this virus subsides and we think, ‘Okay, let’s get back to work.’ It’s going to be a brave new world and we’re all going to have to reassess everything,” he said.
And, that means, the casting for the season can look and feel different.
Of course, we’ve all been changed by what has been happening around the world with the novel virus.
The virus has affected all of us either directly or indirectly. People have gotten sick, lost loved ones, and lost jobs as small businesses and big corporations have all struggled to stay afloat.
It’s impossible to ignore those effects on our society and economy, and The Bachelor, which is often considered escapist reality television, doesn’t plan on shying away from it.
“When we shoot Clare’s season, it’s going to be indicative of what’s happening in the world,” Chris explained. “Obviously, there will be talks of the pandemic and, ‘What were you doing quarantining and who were you with?’ Those are going to be the conversations that we’re going to embrace. And then when you watch Clare’s season, 20 years from now, you’re going to think, ‘What? What were these people doing? Why did they not hug? Why were they scared to embrace?’ And that’s kind of the beauty of this show is it always embraces what’s happening in the real world.”
Coronavirus is definitely a sign of our times. It’s unclear if the show will really bounce back and force contestants to practice social distancing, but it wouldn’t be the craziest thing to happen this year.
With airlines crumbling and the travel industry halted, it may also effect all the trips the contestants take on their journey to love.
We’ll have to wait and see how this all pans out, and while we do, we’re hoping everyone stays safe and healthy!
