Channel Ten's 'The Bachelor' gets back to nature with a bunch of beauties on a secret visit to Glenworth Valley.

7th August 2014 

Some say love doesn’t come easy, and 8 ladies vying for the attention of Australia’s next ‘Bachelor’ will certainly have a story or two to support this statement following a camping adventure at Glenworth Valley on Friday 23rd  May 2014.

The Bachelor is Network TEN’s hit reality series that follows a group of young women as they try to win the affections of one of Australia’s most eligible bachelors. 

The hopefuls visited Glenworth Valley to take part in an overnight camping adventure. The twist in the plot was that the location was kept secret from the contestants until their arrival.  The girls then had to undertake a number of different challenges to prepare their campsite completely unassisted for an overnight stay, deep in the forested hills of Glenworth Valley. 

Series Two of The Bachelor Australia airs on Network Ten, with the first episode in this exciting series commenced on Wednesday 30th July and the exciting Glenworth Valley Outdoor Adventures episode will go to air Week 2 – Thursday 7th August 2014 at 7.30pm.
