Bachelor Nation is getting bigger. The franchise is getting yet another spin-off that will air during the 2018 television season. TVLine reports that ABC has ordered a new competition show featuring Bachelor and Bachelorette contestants to add to the winter schedule.
According to the report, Bachelor Winter Games will air in February on ABC and compete with NBC’s coverage of the 2018 Olympic winter games. The reality TV show will put together some of fans’ favorite former contestants in a cold and snowy setting and have them compete against each other in a variety of athletic challenges. Of course, this is The Bachelor we’re talking about, so they’ll also be looking to find love with one another.
Perhaps some of the biggest names in The Bachelor franchise will return for the fun an games contest, (Maybe even the recently split Ben Higgins and Lauren Bushnell?!) and possibly even walk away with love. While The Bachelor has had spin-offs in the past, like The Bachelorette, and Bachelor Pad, the network also currently runs Bachelor in Paradise in the summer, which is set in a tropical location where the former contestants look to find love.
Meanwhile, ABC is full go on their reality TV programming for the upcoming season. In addition to Bachelor Winter Games, the network is reviving FOX’s former hit American Idol and has ordered a Dancing With The Stars spin-off titled Dancing With The Stars Junior, where celebrity children will partner with kid pros to dance and be judged in the ballroom.
