“We have always known that Jamaica is the ideal place for romance, so to be selected as the location of choice for the culminating episodes of The Bachelor is testament to the island’s appeal,” said Paul Pennicook, Jamaica’s director of tourism.

The ABC series was filmed on location in Ocho Rios, St Ann. The first episode will be aired next Monday, while the second is scheduled on Monday, March 14.

The Bachelor follows Ben Higgins, the handsome software salesman, on his journey for a soulmate. Last season, Higgins was sent home by Kaitlyn Bristowe on

The Bachelorette. He will attempt to put his heartbreak behind him as he searches for true love.

“The diverse offerings of the island will be on display to the millions of viewers across the United States who are eager to know Ben’s final decision,” Pennicook added.

During his visit to the island, Higgins stayed at the outstanding all-inclusive Sandals Ochi Beach Resort.
