In an interview with College Candy, Season 17 contestant Katie Levans remarked on just how much there is to eat when shooting The Bachelor. “Oh my god, there’s so much food,” she revealed to the site. “It’s weird, but the mansion becomes your home so it’s kind of like a really jacked up, well-stocked sorority house.”
Since many of the bachelorettes have their own dietary needs, Levans explained that the producers basically provide a ton of different things for the women to eat. “The pantry, fridge, freezer, etc. were all overflowing with food to accommodate everyone’s dietary restrictions — I’m vegetarian, Catherine [Ligaya]’s vegan, Kacie [Boguskie]’s gluten-free,” the former contestant revealed. No diet was excluded. Like many of the women from later seasons, Levans said season 17 also included a whole lot of snacks and candy. “I recall eating so so so many M&Ms,” she told the site.
