BACHELOR PAD - PREMIERES MONDAY, AUGUST 9 (8:00-10:00 p.m.) - Twenty of the most unforgettable contestants/suitors from the hit franchise "The Bachelor" will reunite - all under one roof - for the all-new series "Bachelor Pad." The series, the first "all-star" reunion from previous seasons of "The Bachelor" and "The Bachelorette," will feature the participants living together in a house in a competitive reality show. The show will also offer the 20 now-single contestants a "second chance" at finding love, something that didn't quite work out during their first stint on "The Bachelor" or "The Bachelorette."
Each week the reunited contestants will compete in challenges, some of which are inspired by incidents from prior seasons. Each two-hour episode will conclude with evictions from the residence. At the end of the six-episode run, one contestant will emerge victorious and will take home a cash prize -- and who knows, maybe even have found "the one." Participants and further details about the prize will be announced at a later date.
"The Bachelor" and "The Bachelorette" host Chris Harrison will host "Bachelor Pad." Executive producers of "Bachelor Pad" are Mike Fleiss, Martin Hilton and Jay Bienstock. The series is from Next Entertainment in association with Warner Horizon Television.
I'm personally wishing this wasn't a competitive reality show and more of a Big Brother situation, but eh, whaddya do? Anyone have casting info or rumors? Based on what we saw on 20/20, I think Holly will likely make an appearance, as she is EVERYWHERE she can be media-wise. I would personally love to see Tina Fabulous from Firestone's season, but I'm assuming she isn't enough of a famewhore for these shenanigans. I do live in Dallas, which is traditionally a fabulous breeding ground for Bachelors and Bachelorettes, so I will keep updating as I hear things in local media. Mix 102.9 generally has Reality Steve and other contestants on the air periodically. Fingers crossed for cheesy awesomeness.
