What are the Bachelor fantasy suites?
The Bachelor fantasy suites give contestants an opportunity to spend the night with the bachelor/ette.
Usually, what happens in the fantasy suites stays in the fantasy suites so contestants do not really divulge the details, but they are allowed to have sexual relationships if they desire.
In an op-ed for The Hollywood Reporter, Bachelorette Andi Dorfman spoke about the suites, saying: “Sure, most of the time there’s intimacy involved. But it’s not just physical, it’s emotional as well.

Adding: “The experience is a kind of unveiling of the fantasy, in an ironic way. It’s the first time you get to spend time with this person that you’re dating without producers.”
The fantasy suites are usually in a luxury private bedroom decorated romantically, similar to a honeymoon suite at a hotel.
Bachelorette Ali Fedotowsky told Entertainment Tonight, “I think maybe they give [condoms] to the guys, which is crazy. They should give to the girls, too, but I think they just [give condoms to the guys] to make it not awkward.”
Are there cameras in the fantasy suites?
There are no cameras in the fantasy suites but the microphones do stay on.
An anonymous contestant dished to Celebuzz about the suite, saying: “First, there are no cameras filming the sex scenes in the room—but there’s never a microphone-free moment.
“Producers want you to believe you’re completely alone and they’re giving you privacy, but there are microphones everywhere.

Adding: “They’re secretly hoping you open up or say something juicy.”
Author Amy Kaufman confirmed in her Bachelor Nation book that while producers are not present to film the fantasy suites, they are staying just a room over.
Kaufman wrote: “Producers almost always know what goes down behind closed doors because oftentimes, they sleep in the same two-room villa as the special couple—just a wall over, where they can literally hear what’s going on.”
