How Does 'Bachelor: Winter Games' Work? The Franchise Spinoff Will Be Totally Different From 'Paradise'


It's time to pull out your parkas Bachelor Nation because winter is officially coming! Now that Bachelor In Paradise has officially wrapped its scandal infused fourth season, the franchise has announced its latest offering: Bachelor: Winter Games. If you're wondering exactly how it works, details indicate that the Bachelor spinoff will be totally different than Paradise.

The new series, which is set to pair with the 2018 Winter Olympics, will reportedly feature arch nemeses, villains, as well as other high profile alumni from the reality dating show franchise as they get together to compete against one another athletically. Needless to say that love and dating will be the series' ultimate contest, because what would Bachelor spinoff be without the pursuit of romance?

Although the season is sure to be chocked full of flirtation, debauchery, and egregious interminglings between Bach contestants from various seasons and franchises, the competitive nature of this latest offering should prove to put a thrilling twist on the traditional format of the Bachelor series.

Longtime Bachelor host and Winter Games producer Chris Harrison shared his excitement for the upcoming series, telling The Hollywood Reporter:

Harrison went on to reveal that he'd like to see the double trouble of twins Emily and Haley Ferguson on the new series which is set to debut in Feb. 2018.


Although the twins have had more than their fair share of drama on the Bachelor stage, Harrison explains his love for the pair, explaining to THR:

However, it would be ABC reality chief Rob Mills who would reveal, perhaps, the most intriguing detail about the forthcoming project: the participation of bachelors from international versions of the beloved series. He tells THR,

Now, if that doesn't get you interested about the Winter Games, we don't know what will. Is it February yet?
