The Bachelor finale LIVE – Matt James breaks down after his mom says love isn’t the ‘end all be all’ in dramatic episode
Bachelors Nick Viall and Sean Lowe took their ladies on dates to plantations during past seasons before Rachael Kirkconnell attended an “Antebellum” party.
Amid the show’s ongoing backlash for its issues with racism, previous episodes have come to light that show the reality show filming on different plantations that once had hundreds of slaves.
In 2017, villain-turned-lead Nick, 40, headed to New Orleans for a week of romance with his ladies – including future Bachelorette Rachel Lindsay.
While Rachel appeared to have fun dancing in the streets with a marching band parade, several women were asked on a group date to The Houmas Estate in Louisiana.
The Houmas Estate was built in the early 1700’s and became known for growing sugar cane, cotton, corn, indigo, tobacco and more crops.
Years before in 2013, Bachelor Sean Lowe took finalist Lesley Murphy to The Estate Mt. Washington on the island of St. Croix in the U.S. Virgin Islands.
The 160-acre plantation was originally built as a Danish cotton and sugar factory in the 1700’s.
