If you can’t get enough of The Bachelor franchise, there’s more coming your way. (And if you’re sick of it, I’ve got some bad news).
The series recently announced its newest spinoff, Bachelor: Winter Games.
A lot of the show’s details are still in development and under wraps, but we’ve got the low down on a few major details. Here’s what we know so far.
1. Chris Harrison is set to host.
Because, duh? I mean can you imagine anyone else in his place? Harrison will also do some producing as well.
2. It will align with the 2018 Winter Olympics.
The new series will air in February, as the Olympics are airing. With the addition of athletic competitions and international contestants from other countries’ versions of The Bachelor, it very much looks like the franchise is literally making The Bachelor Olympics. ABC reality chief Rob Mills said,
“It will have some of the Bachelor Pad DNA, in that there is going to be a competition element. And the other thing we’re excited about is having contestants from the international formats of The Bachelor. So you have somebody from Bachelor Japan, Bachelor Australia, Bachelor Canada and Bachelor UK. We’re really excited to see if we can have some international romances as well as the competition in U.S. versus the world.”
3. It’s set in Vermont.
Seems like the best place to play winter games and hunt for love!
4. It will feature the show’s infamous villains and rivals, as well as notable alumni.
It looks like it’ll include a cast of familiar faces, although we don’t yet know which faces. Any guesses?
Other details are still being worked out, but boy, they really know how to milk this cash cow, don’t they?
