'The Bachelor' Mansion Reportedly Burning In US Wildfires

The famous mansion featured in the "Bachelor" franchise since 2007 is reportedly burning amid the Southern California blaze. A production source told Entertainment Weekly the Bachelor mansion's lower secondary house, used by production, has been destroyed. Westworld isn't now in production, and as the area has been evacuated, we don't yet know the extent of the damage to all of the structures remaining there.

Producer Robert Mills also confirmed that the "Villa de la Vina" property is in the line of fire, tweeting, "Thinking of the people of Malibu and yes #TheBachelor Mansion is in grave danger as well". The well-known filming location Paramount Ranch in Agoura Hills-which has been used by shows like "Westworld", "Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman", and "Weeds"-was destroyed by the fire earlier on Friday".

The series, which films at the lavish mansion twice a year, is now in production on Season 23 but is not now filming. As he explained last year to Good Morning America, the family vacates the home 42 days a year, twice a year, and lives in a hotel during filming.

The devastating Woolsey fire could be claiming a reality TV icon. "Amazed the church is still standing", she wrote.
