Monday morning, ABC revealed the cast and structural details for Bachelor Winter Games, next month’s Bachelor Olympics. That night, The Bachelor fans got their first glimpse of what the show will look and feel like — and it looks like it’s going to be very goofy!
The promo starts with a voiceover saying “The Bachelor has always been hot, but on February 13, it gets cold.” This is followed by clips of people falling down skiing and people crying, with a particular emphasis on professional cryer Ashley Iaconetti, who sobs “I don’t understand why I’m always friend-zoned.” This is going to be good!
Bachelor Winter Games will be four episodes and follow Bachelor contestants from all over the world as they compete in Olympic-style winter sports and look for love.
The male cast includes former Bachelor Ben Higgins; Dean Unglert, Eric Bigger, Jamey Kocan and Josiah Graham from Rachel Lindsay‘s season of The Bachelorette; Luke Pell from JoJo Fletcher‘s season; and Michael Garofolafrom Des Hartsock‘s season. The female cast includes Ashley I. from Chris Soules‘ season of The Bachelor; Clare Crawley from Juan Pablo Galavis‘ season; and Lesley Murphy from Sean Lowe‘s season. More cast members will be announced at a later date.
International competitors are from Bachelor franchises in Canada, Switzerland, Germany, Australia, New Zealand, Finland, the United Kingdom, Sweden, Japan and China.
Bachelor Winter Games premieres Tuesday, Feb. 13 at 8/7c, followed by episodes on Feb. 15, Feb. 20 and Feb. 22.
