American TV heart-throb Jason Mesnick is snapped in Queenstown Gardens this week filming scenes for a new series of the worldwide reality hit The Bachelor.
Mesnick shot to fame earlier this year when he reached the final of the ABC television dating game show The Bachelorette.
Millions of viewers were stunned when the handsome single dad’s emotional marriage proposal to the programme’s star DeAnna Pappas was spurned.
He was flooded with messages of support from an army of smitten female fans.
Account executive Mesnick, 32, proved so popular he was recently chosen to star in his own bid to find new love in The Bachelor – where he gets courted by 25 stunning female contestants and picks his potential partner.
During secret filming sessions in Queenstown, it’s believed Mesnick has been shooting scenes with the final three girls left in the show, which attracts up to 10 million viewers in the United States alone.
The results are due to be screened in the US in January.
The Bachelor screens on TV2 in NZ.
