SUMMARY
The Bachelor” is an ABC reality television program in which an eligible gentleman selects a mate from a group of women. With assistance from Montana Office of Tourism, Glacier County, and the Whitefish Convention and Visitors Bureau, NZK Productions (the main production company of “The Bachelor”) filmed almost a dozen locations in the Whitefish area including Grouse Mountain Lodge, Glacier Park, Casey’s and Bar W Guest Ranch. In addition, the contestants participated in games in a beautiful setting north of Columbia Falls and shared a romantic dinner at Hidden Moose Lodge. The episode featuring Montana aired nationally on February 4th, 2013. “From the very moment we arrived in Whitefish we felt welcome and we truly appreciate you all going the extra mile to ensure that we were not only comfortable during our stay, but that we were able to accomplish our vision of featuring your beautiful town as a romantic, exciting and absolutely stunning destination.” – Josh Figgs, producer of The Bachelor
