'The Bachelor' Curtain Designer Angelic Rutherford Talks About Her Designs on Reality TV Show
"The Bachelor" curtain designer Angelic Rutherford recently opened up about her unique designs on the hit ABC reality TV show.
In an interview with Elle Décor, Rutherford admitted that she didn't have any knowledge about "The Bachelor" when she was first asked to work on the show. This is why she thought she will only be part of it for an entire season.
"I flew out to meet the producers and met everyone in the office, and it was great. I got hired as the production designer for Jesse Palmer's season in 2003. My friend took me to 'The Bachelor' mansion, and they had just wrapped on 'The Bachelorette," she recounted.
According to Rutherford, with very minimal knowledge about the show, she decided to design it in such a way that it would be very modern.
"My style was really modern at the time, so we did a lot of construction to give it a new, clean, modern look."
Meanwhile, every season, Rutherford is tasked to come up with new curtains and set ideas for "The Bachelor."
"We try to maintain the set and make sure it stays clean. It can be such a nightmare when you have white couches in the mansion and girls are drinking red wine. Sometimes, the guys are cleaner than the girls. The ladies can be quite messy. We have an overnight crew that maintains the set and makes sure everything's ready for the next day. Or, if they're filming in one room, we sneak in and sneak out of another and clean it," she said.
In other news, "The Bachelor" is currently airing another season on ABC. Until the present day, Rutherford is still the one assigned to design the set.
