These Are The Aspiring Musicians Who Will Compete For Love On The New 'Bachelor' Spinoff

ABC

Normally, a new season of the Bachelorette and Bachelor in Paradise, would be the next shows to look forward to, but first, there's a new stop on the annual tour of Bachelor Nation. It's Bachelor Presents: Listen to Your Heart, and the cast is full of young, aspiring musicians looking for love. Alas, Jed Wyatt is not coming along for the ride, though he must be kicking himself every time he watches the previews that have been running on the network.

Make no mistake in thinking that this dating series is anything like its tropical co-ed counterpart. Yes, the group of men and women are potential partners, but there's a competition element, too. While living together, they get to know each other through musical-themed dates. And once they lock in a romantic match, they take on the rest of the season as a couple by competing in challenges, performing for experienced judges, and more. The couples with the highest scores advance, and on the show's finale, one will remain. It's unclear what they win, if they win anything, or if they're even expected to get engaged.

Nevertheless, here they are — the guinea pigs of the franchise's latest spinoff.
