The iconic ‘Bachelor Mansion’ is burning in the California wildfires, according to a new report this Friday.
The 7,500-square-foot mansion, which is on 10 acres of land and has been featured on dozens of seasons of both “The Bachelor” and “The Bachelorette,” is reportedly engulfed in flames thanks to the California wildfires in Agoura Hill, CA.

Franchise producer Bennett Graebner told The Hollywood Reporter that the mansion’s back patio is burning and the fire is rapidly moving toward the actual structure.
“The lower house, which is often used as production headquarters, has been destroyed,” The Hollywood Reporter writes. “Franchise creator Mike Fleiss and ABC reality chief Rob Mills had taken to Twitter earlier in the day to say that the house was in ‘grave danger’ as the wildfires forced evacuations in Malibu.”

“The Bachelor” is currently filming its 23rd season with fan-favorite Colton Underwood, a former pro football player.
When the flames got dangerously close to the mansion, however, filming moved to a separate location and took all the necessary precautions. But you can almost be certain that the show will play the drama up when it comes out in January.
We’re just happy to hear everyone’s safe.
