Cleveland has become a popular choice to serve as the host city for major events across sports, entertainment and politics.

CLEVELAND — Can the new Bachelor find love in Northeast Ohio?

We will soon find out as Monday night's episode of The Bachelor brings the reality show to the Cleveland area.

“The episode will feature the lakefront cityscape, the community’s passionate residents and familiar attractions of the region as the newest Bachelor, Peter Weber, continues his journey to find love,” officials with Destination Cleveland announced last week.

Among the Cleveland locations to be featured in the episode are the Hilton Cleveland Downtown, the Cleveland History Center and FirstEnergy Stadium.

Cleveland-based food truck owner Joe Becker, who owns Pierogi Joe's, says he can also be seen in the episode. Becker revealed that the Cleveland episode featured a polka party on Public Square, where Peter and his date learned to polka dance before trying pierogies for lunch for the first time. 

Cedar Point will also be part of the episode. Video that was recorded last October shows country star Chase Rice performing a concert for the Bachelor episode inside the park.

“Welcoming The Bachelor puts the spotlight on Cleveland for two hours of one of the top-rated shows on primetime television, reaching millions of people across the country and the world,” said David Gilbert, president and CEO of Destination Cleveland. “The show offers us a unique opportunity to showcase Cleveland as an all-around great city to key influencers and generate awareness of what the region has to offer in the minds of potential leisure and business travelers.”

The episode is set to air Monday, Jan. 27 at 8 p.m.
