BEHIND-THE-SCENES: MuckFest MS Featured in January 26th Episode of ABC’s Hit Romance Reality Series The Bachelor
In case you missed it, here is a clip.
After opening a date card that said “Let’s get dirty,” the six contestants donned pristine white wedding dresses and boarded a jet from Wheels Up to Northern California. After a limo ride, contestants were surprised by MuckFest MS emcee Al Emerick with the news that they’d be running a customized MuckFest MS Bachelor mud obstacle course – in their wedding dresses! The winner got a dream date with the Bachelor at the historic Fairmont Hotel in San Francisco. The five less-fortunate contestants showered off, donned white fluffy robes, and flew directly back to The Bachelor mansion in Southern California.
The mile-long fun run course featured ten obstacles, including Triple Pits, Big Balls, Walk on Water, Spider Web (over and under), Mt. Muck-imanjaro, The Spinner, Swing Set, Skid Mark, and Belly Crawl.
The MuckFest MS team worked closely with the show’s producers to ensure that microphones and cameras could capture the fierce competition and mucky hilarity that ensued. The team also made sure the course was extra mucky for the contestants in their wedding dresses.
The day of the filming, production staff captured the ladies completing the mud obstacle course with bachelor Chris Soules, riding with their cameras between obstacles on gators driven by MuckFest MS production staff. Bachelor Chris was a total gentleman and helped several of the contestants across the muddy finish line.
By showcasing the MuckFest MS mud obstacle course on The Bachelor, we’re proud to raise awareness for the mission of MuckFest MS: to raise funds to support the 2.3 million people living with MS and to bring us closer to a world without MS.
