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


    27959266383_ef9c367d7e_o.jpg
    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!


    28468176402_0f329f26d7_o.jpg
    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!


    27959266033_451108b8fc_o.jpg
    To the left of the entry, is a raised gazebo with a formal, romantic sitting area, complete with a fireplace for chilly nights.


    28468176022_ccd6bfd61a_o.jpg
    To the right, and attached to the one end of the house, is a more casual outdoor dining area with a BBQ and bar.


    27959265663_216ee121e4_o.jpg
    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.


    28468175812_31863e07a2_o.jpg
    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.


    27959265393_fed96266f2_o.jpg
    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.

    27959264543_156b2a1e83_o.jpg
    28468174952_322439f56f_o.jpg
    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.

    27957409724_5f05ba0026_o.jpg
    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!!

    The Bachelor of Newcrest
    by Meeshelby

    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!

    27978321783_2f70279f93_o.jpg

    27978321493_b80257ac8e_o.jpg
    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.


    28487239982_1eb10027af_o.jpg
    27978321223_73ca283daa_o.jpg
    28487239692_3fab8833fb_o.jpg
    The next set of doors down the hallway leads into the first floor kitchen.


    27978320593_4158a1fa54_o.jpg
    You can pass directly from the kitchen, by the stairs that lead up to the next level, and into the formal dining room.


    28487239322_c609f48738_o.jpg
    28487239262_5e44c2c7fc_o.jpg
    28487239142_18565e3370_o.jpg
    27978320093_e1aa0b54ea_o.jpg
    This dining area is quite large and can seat many guests.

    27978319703_7de78dba49_o.jpg
    28487238792_23ee6c4493_o.jpg
    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.


    27978319523_afd7bc64c9_o.jpg
    28487238542_f87ecd0554_o.jpg
    27978319263_fe2c04f4a4_o.jpg
    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.


    27978319103_0e72849221_o.jpg
    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.

    28309763270_31144441f6_o.jpg
    27978318523_0112464172_o.jpg
    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.
    28042678184_f81f022e17_o.jpg
    28043551583_a023bf3a58_o.jpg
    28042678114_10e778c57c_o.jpg
    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.


    28043551393_85560b1708_o.jpg
    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.


    25367767216_aa126b39b0_o.jpg
    Heather Howell was the first girl to arrive at the mansion. ( @Heckstress17 )


    28042678464_91e98097a5_o.jpg
    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.


    28043551083_ae1cc031c4_o.jpg
    However, after the immediate pleasantries, they gave each other a big hug (autonomously) and it broke the ice right away.


    28042677814_db1b200052_o.jpg
    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.


    28043550833_6f0e80b61b_o.jpg
    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.


    28042677624_44b974bef2_o.jpg
    28043550493_8dfca7b66c_o.jpg
    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.

    28042677194_554deb8222_o.jpg
    28042677534_f535b3abb9_o.jpg
    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.


    25368006136_9cffe42b1d_o.jpg
    The next girl to arrive at the mansion was Maya Greene ( @LunarMoon88 )


    28043550193_faa4fa6860_o.jpg
    When she entered the gate, they smiled shyly at one another and introduced themselves.


    28375450040_d3fbe95cdf_o.jpg
    Their introduction was full of awkward silence, and small giggles.


    28043549743_b97e3325f7_o.jpg
    Finally, Lance broke the silence with some jokes and she politely laughed.


    28042677134_95c9814a09_o.jpg
    That broke the ice and Maya began telling Lance all about her love of gardening. They connected over their mutual love of food!.


    28042677054_1316bb08d2_o.jpg
    28043549313_fcfd37ef2e_o.jpg
    When Maya finally went into the mansion, they both had a pleasant smile on their faces.


    24767652163_c16caf60e5_o.jpg
    The 3rd model to arrive, was Katherine Akins. ( @BobSkellington )


    28042676834_43f9b355f8_o.jpg
    Their mutual attraction to one another was immediately apparent.


    28375449850_aa5ddf972f_o.jpg
    28042676844_f355481c35_o.jpg
    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!


    28042676614_519f8a734f_o.jpg
    28043548893_494a1b0afe_o.jpg
    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!
