The folks at REI yesterday sent out a press release about their Seattle flaghsip serving as the backdrop for a portion of Monday’s episode of “The Bachelor.”
It seems that the store was selected for a private “one-on-one date” to showcase the outdoor recreation interests of Jason Mesnick, the show’s bachelor. Mesnick, a single dad from Kirkland, visited the Puget Sound area with the five remaining women for Monday’s episode.
The date features the couple climbing the store’s 65-foot pinnacle, one of the world’s tallest indoor climbing structures, and enjoying “private time” in front of the two-story rock fireplace, the press release said. Something tells me the store won’t be packed with Gore-Tex clad shoppers when Mesnick and the special lady sit down in front of the fireplace. Who knew REI would be a hot spot for romance?
The episode is scheduled to on at 8 p.m. PST.
