Golden Bachelorette Starts Filming

Filming for the first season of The Golden Bachelorette has reportedly started filming. The show is scheduled to air this fall on ABC. The spinoff comes on the heels of a historic Golden Bachelor season featuring senior citizens looking for a second chance at love.

Gerry Turner thought he found it with Theresa Nist. The pair didn’t waste time and married less than two months after the season finale aired. However, the marriage quickly crashed and burned. They announced on GMA in April that they were divorcing after just three months of marriage. Neither senior wanted to uproot their lives and move away from their families.
