Officials consider spending thousands to attract 'The Bachelor' to their New Mexico city

SANTA FE, N.M. - The city of Santa Fe, New Mexico, is trying to land the "The Bachelor," and it may shell out some money for the mission.

The Albuquerque Journal reports (http://goo.gl/GRqNAi) councillors are expected Wednesday to consider a request to spend between $50,000 and $100,000 from Tourism Santa Fe's reserve budget in an effort to attract the popular ABC-TV dating show.

Officials want the show to film one of next season's episodes in Santa Fe. The New Mexico Department of Tourism already has agreed to a letter of intent to commit $50,000 to the effort.

Randy Randall, Tourism Santa Fe's executive director, says the show's producers approached Santa Fe two weeks ago about possibly shooting in the city.

"The Bachelor," which debuted in 2002, follows a single man as he goes on dates and chooses a potential bride from 25 women.
