Andy Baldwin: It took just under six weeks [to film the show], I took 40 days of leave to do the show. We crammed a lot into that time period. And if you ask me, or any of the women if it felt like six weeks, everyone will tell you that it felt like a year. It gets intense in terms of delving into a person's psyche and emotions and meeting families, it's a very accelerated dating and courting process. But I think that's the method in the madness of 'The Bachelor.' When you press people and put them in a stressful environment, their true colors come out.
