ProductionEdit

Filming of the series took place over 2 months,[1] in the south of France, Italy, the UK, with the final held in St. Lucia. The Batchelor was rugby player, Gavin Henson. In the 7th episode, Henson was required to visit the parents of the quarter finalists which meant that for one of the contestants, Zivile, he had to visit Vilnius, Lithuania.

Finalist Layla Manoochehri was previously notable for being the girlfriend of Simon Webbe, whom she broke up with in 2011, as well as for reaching the finals of the fifth season of The X Factor as a member of the group Girlband.[2]

ContestantsEdit

The 25 contestants are as follows:

Quarter-finalEdit

Quarter-finalists were Layla, Carianne, Zivile, Morgan and April. The Bachelor visited the parents and family of the contestants.

Semi-finalEdit

Layla, Carianne and April were selected for the semi-final in St. Lucia. After dates with the three girls Gavin decided to let April go, leaving Carianne and Layla to battle it out for his affections.

FinalEdit

Layla and Carianne were the last two he shared romantic dates with. Although he said he had feelings for both the girls, he said that he loved Carianne and he chose her as his "girlfriend", telling her he loved her and she replied that she loved him also.[1]

Carianne broke up with Henson in early 2012, describing him as "spineless" and "really dry" and saying the "whole experience was really fake".[3]
