If the walls of the Bachelor Mansion could talk, they would probably have a lot to say. What goes down inside the hallowed halls is supposed to be a mystery, but Bachelor fans are always thirsty for information about what the contestants really do when the cameras aren't rolling. Every now and then, contestants spill the tea and provide logistical details about the show that shatter everyone's perception of what the "journey" really entails. For example, the contestants apparently eat dinner before the one-on-one date, and that's why they never touch the food on the actual date. Mind-blowing, right?
The other normal human activity you rarely witness the participants do is exercise. Believe it or not, there's no gym in the Bachelor Mansion, according to Buzzfeed. Sure, the contestants might be able to squeeze in some physical activity, like mud wrestling, during a kooky group date, but otherwise, they have to get creative. You might remember Chad from JoJo's season performing pull-ups at the mansion with a 60-pound suitcase strapped to his waist, and that's not the only MacGyvering they've done. As legend has it, there's a worn-down track in the yard from contestants running laps to kill time, according to Buzzfeed.
These workout hacks might sound bizarre, but if don't have a gym, they're actually genius. Ahead are a few ideas for how to work out at home, whether you're stuck in a Bachelor Mansion with dozens of other people, or just watching The Bachelorette alone at home.
