Bermuda Inspires Romance On “The Bachelorette”

May 28, 2012

The romantic beauty of Bermuda will provide a scenic backdrop to the fourth episode of The Bachelorette. The show, whose visit to the island was arranged by the Bermuda Department of Tourism, is scheduled to air on Monday, June 4.

The episode will cover three uniquely Bermudian dates with the newest Bachelorette, Emily Maynard, the first single mom to ever star on the series, who first captured America’s heart on the 15th season of “The Bachelor.”

“The Bachelorette is one of America’s most-watched primetime programmes and each season is highly anticipated,” said Minister of Business Development and Tourism, Wayne Furbert.

“The exposure that Bermuda will receive to tens of millions of North American viewers is tremendous and will highlight why this is truly one of the world’s ultimate romantic destinations.”

Viewers will join Maynard and her prospective suitors as they enjoy Bermuda’s natural scenery and cultural experiences. While on the island, Maynard and company stayed at Rosewood Tucker’s Point. There she enjoyed the candlelit wine cellar at The Point and the resort’s fine dining restaurant during a romantic one-on-one date.

She also took part in a group date at the resort’s private beach club overlooking a stretch of Bermuda’s signature pink sand beach capped off by a spectacular fireworks display.

A walk along the cobblestone streets of the Town of St. George helped Maynard and her date understand where Bermuda’s distinctive culture began. While in the town they visited attractions such as the Bermuda Perfumery for a signature fragrance and St. Peter’s, Their Majesties Chappell. After enjoying a rum cake and a Gombey troupe performance, Maynard and her date walked through a Moongate for luck.

Maynard also saw Bermuda’s maritime activities on full display during a visit to the Royal Bermuda Yacht Club for a fun and very competitive sailing regatta amongst her gentlemen suitors. In addition, she sailed aboard The Venetian, one of the island’s most luxurious yachts, and witnessed thrilling cliff jumping into the Atlantic.

Bermuda’s awe-inspiring subterranean caves provided the setting for a memorable dinner date amidst crystal stalagmites and stalactites and cool reflecting waters. The show’s signature Rose Ceremony took place in one of Bermuda’s beautiful private homes before Maynard and her suitors left the island for their next adventures.

Minister Furbert added: “I would also like to thank the more than 100 people who assisted the production in Bermuda including of course Tucker’s Point and Grotto Bay but also the Town of St. George, taxi drivers, truckers, charter boats, restaurants, Gombeys and suppliers of services from flowers and candles to tents and electricians.”

The new season of The Bachelorette airs Mondays at 9pm on ABC. For more information on The Bachelorette, visit their website.
