TUESDAY, MARCH 27: The Bachelorette has begun filming its eighth season here in Bermuda.

Bachelorette Emily Maynard was filming scenes with her mystery date last night in St George.

The pair were seen walking from King’s Square to St Peter’s Church where they sat on the steps and had a meal.

Onlookers stood across the street watching until they were asked to move by the production crew.

There were also Gombeys in the area but they were not participating in that scene.

Today, Ms Maynard was on a boat in Hamilton Harbour with her suitors.

The popular ABC show announced in January that its bachelorette for the eighth season was the 26-year-old single mother.

She won The Bachelor last year when Brad Womack proposed to her, but the couple split in June.

Ms Maynard, a fan favourite, will be the first single mom bachelorette and will choose one of 25 men to spend her life with.

The crew for the show arrived in Bermuda last week and are staying at Rosewood Tucker’s Point along with the cast.

Sources have told the Bermuda Sun a rose ceremony will take place at a lavish property on the island later this week.

The Bachelorette premieres on May 14 on ABC.
