    Season 1 ~ Episode 1
    Welcome to the Mansion: Tour Part 1

    Our Bachelor, Lance Curtis, has moved into the Bachelor Mansion and is quite anxious to show us around! This mansion is quite large and spacious, including a lounge/bar, gym/computer room, 2 kitchens, a large formal dining room, 3 casual living rooms, a formal sitting room, 3 full bathrooms and at least 7 bedrooms, although we sort of lost count. The grounds include a BBQ patio, a formal gazebo, a pool and gardens. Let's have a look!

    The first thing you see when you enter the front gates is the large fountain surrounded by beautiful landscaping. Each of the four corners of the fountain are adorned with a bird bath, great for bird watching!

    To the left of the entry, is a raised gazebo with a formal, romantic sitting area, complete with a fireplace for chilly nights.

    To the right, and attached to the one end of the house, is a more casual outdoor dining area with a BBQ and bar.

    Beside the BBQ area is a large, open air formal sitting area. This is where the more formal gatherings with our Bachelor and the women will take place. More photos inside this area will be shown later in this episode.

    In the center front of the house, on the first floor is a long casual living area. Two smaller living rooms are connected by a hallway. All are open to the outside.

    On the left of the property, between the formal sitting gazebo and the house, is a swimming pool.

    And behind the pool, on the left side of the mansion is the lounge/bar for casual parties and fun evenings. Let's continue by looking at how this is decorated.
    This lounge is an excellent spot for the women and Lance to hang out after a busy day. Great for relaxation and casual conversation, it gains a romantic vibe after the sun goes down and the low lights come up.

    From this lounge, you can walk directly into the one living room that is connected by the long hallway. Here are some shots of this whole area.
    These living areas allow for smaller groups and more private conversation.

    From the other living area, we enter back into the formal meeting room.
    And that is where we will end our tour for this first episode! There are already many photos to browse through. Next we will show the inside of the mansion. See you next episode!!

    Season 1 ~ Episode 2
    Welcome to the Mansion: Tour Part 2

    Today we are continuing the tour of the Bachelor mansion. You may have noticed in the last episode a couple sets of doors off the long hallway that separates the two casual living rooms on the first floor. Those doors lead to the other rooms on the main level. Let's continue our tour there!

    On the left side, just past the lounge/bar area is a gym and computer area combined into one. The back wall of the gym has a door into the downstairs bathroom as well.

    The next set of doors down the hallway leads into the first floor kitchen.

    You can pass directly from the kitchen, by the stairs that lead up to the next level, and into the formal dining room.

    This dining area is quite large and can seat many guests.

    Now let's head up the stairs onto the 2nd level. Upon entering the 2nd floor, you pass a small computer desk nook, the stairs to the 3rd level and walk into the 2nd floor living room.

    This living area is quite warm and inviting and directly off of it is a set of doubles doors that leads into our Bachelor's suite. We won't be revealing that just yet.

    Just behind the stairs that lead to the 3rd floor and past Lance's room, is another small computer nook.

    The rest of the 2nd floor is comprised of bedrooms and another bathroom where the girls will be staying. Those will be revealed as the girls move in. Climbing the final flight of stairs to the 3rd floor, we enter the upstairs kitchen. It is smaller and more cozy.
    The 3rd floor kitchen also includes a casual dining area, and the hallway behind leads to more bedrooms and a final bathroom.

    We'll see you next episode!!

    Season 1 ~ Episode 3
    The Search for Love Begins

    Our Bachelor, Lance Curtis, was enjoying getting to know the mansion in the couple of days he had to himself before the women would arrive.
    Mostly, Lance would spend his time playing the guitar, and learning love songs. He also enjoyed mixing drinks, and especially cooking dishes. In fact, his plan was to cook every meal during his time here.

    Soon, it was time for the women to begin arriving! Lance was quite nervous, and tried to calm his nerves by strumming more on the guitar.

    Heather Howell was the first girl to arrive at the mansion. ( @Heckstress17 )

    Lance went to the front gate to greet her. He was there before she arrived. When they first laid eyes on one another, their expressions were ones of nervous excitement.

    However, after the immediate pleasantries, they gave each other a big hug (autonomously) and it broke the ice right away.

    For the next several minutes they chatted non stop about many different things. Heather told Lance that she enjoyed running and being active in general, but had a tendency to fall on her face on occasion. Lance laughed at all her jokes and she listened avidly as he talked about his love of music and food.

    Heather explained that she was looking for her soul mate and hoped that maybe this time together would show if they would be a match. They both felt an immediate connection and were excited to see if it was more than just first meeting jitters.

    Heather started into the mansion to wait until Lance was finished meeting the other girls, but he chased her down and chatted a little while longer, not quite ready to let her go.

    After he finally let her go, Lance had a HUGE cheesy grin on his face! He knew he wanted to get to know her more.

    The next girl to arrive at the mansion was Maya Greene ( @LunarMoon88 )

    When she entered the gate, they smiled shyly at one another and introduced themselves.

    Their introduction was full of awkward silence, and small giggles.

    Finally, Lance broke the silence with some jokes and she politely laughed.

    That broke the ice and Maya began telling Lance all about her love of gardening. They connected over their mutual love of food!.

    When Maya finally went into the mansion, they both had a pleasant smile on their faces.

    The 3rd model to arrive, was Katherine Akins. ( @BobSkellington )

    Their mutual attraction to one another was immediately apparent.

    Katherine was quite the talker, so Lance listened avidly while she talked about her love of music and food. Lance smiled quite widely, thinking they had a lot in common!

    As Katherine headed into the mansion, she smiled back at Lance over her shoulder. His look of pure happiness made her smile even wider.

    Thank you for joining us for this episode! Be sure to come back for the next one, as Lance and the girls begin to get to know each other, and two more girls move into the mansion soon after. See you soon!

    Ah! I'm so glad you've found the time to continue with this challenge! The mansion looks amazing, you did a great job decorating it. I was so excited to see Heather meet Lance. It seems like they really hit it off well, love at first sight? ;) The other girls are going to be great competition though. Can't wait for the next update!
