It's interesting how they film a reality television show.

A lot of it is just for the show.

Jason Tartick, who went to Williamsville East and Geneseo, came came back to Buffalo to film the 'Hometown Date' for the show. Making it to the hometown date show, usually means that the contestant is down to the Final Four.

Tartick continued to the University of Rochester after Geneseo before moving to Seattle as a corporate banker. The show will continue to film through today.

Here are the places they went yesterday for the first day of filming:

  1. Delaware Park
  2. HarborCenter
  3. Anchor Bar for a 'wing eating contest'
  4. Jason's "house" on Elmwood (which they say isn't even really his childhood house or his parents' house? Apparently, it's a common practice that the show does to protect the families from having their real home address accidentally aired).
