Few shows are as polarizing as the RTL formats “The Bachelor” or “The Bachelorette”.
Critics like to criticize the display of outdated role models. And in fact it can be seen that in the new season of “The Bachelorette” the male candidates in their villa free time are primarily shown lifting weights (in the morning) or at pool parties with beer (in the evening). Somehow the gentlemen have to pass the time until they are called on a date – why not with dumbbells and hops?
“woke” probably different. And despite this (or perhaps because of this?), “The Bachelorette” is also very popular with a “woken” (translated as “awakened”) audience.

Who is the Bachelorette 2022?
The Bachelorette of the ninth season is called Sharon Battiste, is 30 years old and should already be known to some viewers. In the series format “Köln 50667” on RTL ZWEI, the actress embodied the role of “Bo” from 2018 to 2021, a former prostitute.
Meanwhile, the Cologne native with German-Jamaican roots is no longer just in front of TV cameras to see, but also present as a model and above all an influencer in social networks.
This year’s bachelorette also hits more serious tones on her Instagram profile. Sharon Battiste has had alopecia areata in the past, i.e circular hair loss, diagnosed. Since the trained office clerk made her illness public, Battiste has been sharing her experiences as an affected person in her Instagram highlights, answering questions from the community or taking her fans on a shopping tour when it comes to trying out different wigs.
After the diagnosis, the influencer decided to finally shave her hair and put on changing wigs. In an interview with “Stern” she said proudly “The bald head gave me back my strength”.
Privately, the 30-year-old loves to dance. According to various media reports, the native of Cologne used to appear as a guard and show dancer. A plus when choosing a partner would be if your future Rosenkavalier shares your passion for this hobby. According to RTL information, the influencer also wants to award a few plus points for dry humor. At the start of the show, she announced, “I think I’m the funniest Bachelorette yet.”
What is this year’s selection of candidates?
A total of 20 candidates are vying for Sharon Battiste’s heart. Among the applicants are some men who have already worked in various other RTL formats have taken part, but also TV debutants.
The fact that some of the candidates have already appeared on the RTL shows “Love Island”, “Take Me Out” or “Are You The One?” is also discussed on social networks.
The questionable taste in fashion of single men is also hotly debated – especially in terms of trouser length and deficits in socks. However, it is doubtful whether the 3/4 trousers presented in the show are actually the measure of all things flood in the rest of the world.
Another point of criticism from the Twitter community is certainly due to the fact that almost all men are showing an increased level of fitness. Also the “Frankfurter Rundschau” criticizes in her criticism of the show a cast “in which all men with six packs from Bad Segeberg to Mettmann are represented”.
After all, with the candidate Yannick Syperek, there is also an applicant this year who, according to his own statements, is not a “bumper”. Compared to RTL he said “I offer less muscle, but a lot of heart”.
Where was the Bachelorette 2022 filmed?
This year’s season was filmed in Thailand. Among other things, the cities of Bangkok and Phuket served as film locations. RTL has not yet revealed exactly where the villa of the Bachelorette candidates is located.
With a filming location in Asia, this is a real first. Never before has The Bachelorette been filmed outside of Europe. The previous Bachelorettes Maxime, Melissa, Gerda and Nadine were primarily looking for love in Greece. Other locations were France, Portugal and Spain.
