The Bachelor and The Bachelorette may look a little different after the California wildfires. On Nov. 9, the Agoura Hills home that we’ve come to know and love for housing our fave budding reality stars was badly affected by the Woolsey fire, and by the time it’s extinguished, there may be nothing left.
Show creator Mike Fleiss took to Twitter on Friday, writing, “Pray for Malibu— and #TheBachelor Mansion…” He also included a smokey photo, which seemed to show flames engulfing some scenic hills near the estate. ABC Reality Cheif Rob Mills RT’d the post, adding, “Thinking of the people of Malibu and yes #TheBachelor Mansion is in grave danger as well.” Unfortunately, it seems like things have only gotten worse since they shared.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the back patio of the house is already burning, and the lower house, where the production team works, has reportedly been entirely destroyed. Right now, the flames are creeping closer to the main house, and the strong gusts of wind and lack of water certainly, isn’t helping.
Luckily, it sounds like nobody was in the house as flames charged towards it. Us Weekly learned that Colton Underwood and his contestants were no longer shooting his season in the house, and the family that owns it (and rents it out twice a year for the show) were settled back into their abode. Unfortunately, they were forced to flee, and it sounds like there may sadly be nothing to come back to.
Many famous homes have been destroyed or threatened by the blaze. All of the Kardashians were forced to evacuate, and Caitlyn Jenner’s Malibu home burned down in its entirety. Kim and Kanye’s palatial home might be next, as flame encroach on their property. We wish everyone the best in this difficult time.
