Move over, figure skating, there’s a new favorite winter sport making its television debut in 2018: love.
OK, not really, but it’s the sport Bachelor Nation will be watching early next year, when the franchise’s next spinoff, The Bachelor Winter Games, makes its debut and pits fan-favorites from past seasons of The Bachelor and The Bachelorette, “from arch rivals to villains, will take competitive dating to a chilling new level.” At least that’s what ABC said when they announced the show in May.
While there’s not a lot of information out there yet about Winter Games, we finally learned of one contestant who will be competing, when franchise creator Mike Fleiss announced Peter Kraus, Rachel Lindsay‘s fan-favorite runner-up and our almost-Bachelor, will be a cast member.
Huzzah! But aside from Peter’s involvement, a few other tidbits that have been dished out by Fleiss & Co. on social media and in interviews, details about Winter Games are pretty scarce, which reminds us of four summers ago when no one had any idea what the hell Bachelor in Paradise would turn into (Sigh, we were so young then).
Here’s everything we know about The Bachelor‘s next spinoff, which is basically Bachelor Pad meets the Winter Olympics meets The Challenge (aka your next guilty pleasure):
The Bachelor Winter Games will premiere February 2018 on ABC.
