Can love really bring us together? Well, we sure hope so, as our favorite ABC love franchise brings an element of fun to winter games. Just like the Olympics, Bachelor favorites from the United States will be competing with other global bachelor contestants in friendly competition, as well as for love, of course.
Chris Harrison will be hosting this four episode mini series with the help of Bachelor favorites Ryan and Trista Sutter, Arie Luyendyk Jr., Rachel Lindsay, and JoJo Fletcher. Because it is the winter games, Bachelor Nation can't handle this on their own and are also bringing in Olympic Champions Nancy Karrigan, Tai Babilonia, and Randy Gardner.
Playing in the games there will be 14 international contestants and 12 fan favorites from the American franchise. ABC says "Throughout the run of “The Bachelor Winter Games,” fans can expect twists and turns on and off the ski mountain, as well as romance, heartbreak, love and, of course, roses. The bachelors and bachelorettes will participate in challenges from winter biathlon to ice dancing, with date cards being given to the winners of each challenge."
