The Bachelor: 15 Fashion/Beauty Secrets You Didn’t Know About
The Bachelor is one of the most popular reality shows on television. A series that has been around for over twenty seasons and spawned several spin-offs, the show has evolved greatly since it first aired back in 2002. One aspect that has changed the most is the fashion! As with any reality TV series, there is so much more work done behind the scenes that viewers aren’t privy to, and this is definitely the case when it comes to wardrobe choices by both the contestants and stars of the show. Let’s take a look at 15 behind the scenes secret about getting dressed for The Bachelor:
15. Stylist on Set
While the contestants don’t have access to a stylist, the Bachelor or Bachelorette will have a professional stylist who dresses them throughout the series from beginning to end. Cary Fetman has been the Bachelor‘s stylist since 2006. Styling outfits for an entire season is a lot of work, so most of it is done ahead of time. Fetman will meet with the star of the show ahead of taping to learn about their particular style is and pull wardrobe choices based on that. He also works with each Bachelor/Bachelorette to find what’s most comfortable for them, so they are heavily involved in what choices are made. Some stars will know exactly what they want and be more involved in the decisions while others are more laidback and leave it entirely up to him.
14. Things Don’t Always Go as Planned
Even though clothing choices are very collaborative, since the Bachelor/Bachelorette won’t know where the show will be traveling ahead of time, Fetman definitely has to guide some of their outfit choices. There have been times when they must travel for filming and the clothing doesn’t arrive. “[A]ll of a sudden we’re trying to find a clothing store that has what we need. And all sizes are different. That’s why I’m there,” said Fetman to Entertainment Weekly. According to Fetman, he has to prepare for any kind of situation that might arise, like lost luggage, unexpected weather, wardrobe malfunctions, etc.
