On The Bachelor, Ben Higgins and the bachelorettes travel to the Bahamas. Ben chooses one woman to bring deep sea fishing followed by a romantic dinner, but the evening spins out of control when the woman “makes a confusing confession that puts their relationship in jeopardy.” And that’s not all! Later, Ben takes a group of ladies to an island inhabited by pigs.

Pig Beach (aka Pig Island, Major Cay, and Big Major Cay) is a real island (or cay, as they say in the Bahamas) inhabited by approximately 20 swimming swine. Story goes that the pigs were left there by a group of sailors who wanted to return one day and cook them, but they never did make it back to the island. The pigs survived by eating food dumped from passing ships. Another story is the pigs were planted there to create a tourist trap. The Bachelor airs Mondays at 8pm on ABC.
