Lorenzo Borghese, star of the ninth season of ABC’s “The Bachelor,” will be home-hunting in Long Island on the reality realty show “Selling New York,” set to premiere Jan. 19 on HGTV, Newsday reported.

Borghese, the founder and president of Royal Treatment Italian Pet Spa, looks for a summer home in the soon-to-air episode. He is aided in his search by Woodbury, N.Y.-based high-end broker Shawn Elliott, of Shawn Elliott’s Luxury Homes and Estates, who joins show regulars Sabrina and Michele Kleier of Gumley Haft Kleier in the search. Borghese didn’t set a price limit on what he was looking for, Newsday said. “I said, ‘Price doesn’t matter. It’s all about walking in and feeling that it’s right,’” Borghese said.

The properties Borghese viewed ranged in price from $7 million, for a Centre Island home, to a $20 million spread for a Lloyd Harbor spread. [Newsday]
