Back in June, an ABC film crew visited the historic ranch for a day to shoot an episode of the reality dating competition, according to Destini Cavalletto, general manager of ranch headquarters.
Cavalletto said a couple of contestants ate dinner at the ranch and took a ride on the Pacific Coast Railroad, a 1800s-era narrow-gauge railroad that features a steam engine train featured on TV’s “Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman” and four passenger cars originally owned by Walt Disney.
Now in its third season, “Bachelor Pad” features a mixture of past contestants from “The Bachelor” and “The Bachelorette” and “super-fans” competing for $250,000 and “a second chance at love,” according to the show’s website. The show airs at 8 p.m. Mondays on ABC.

Cavalleto said the show is “a great way to bring attention to what not only the ranch but San Luis Obispo County has to offer.”
