“Bachelor Pad” reunites 19 of the most unforgettable suitors from the hit franchise “The Bachelor.” The series, which marks the first “all-star” reunion from previous seasons of “The Bachelor” and “The Bachelorette,” will feature the contestants living together while competing against each other in a series of challenges. At stake is $250,000 and maybe a second chance at finding love.
Former “The Bachelor” and “Dancing with the Stars” contestant Melissa Rycroft gets set to co-host “Bachelor Pad,” the exciting new competitive reality series from the producers of “The Bachelor” and “The Bachelorette.” Rycroft will host alongside Chris Harrison (“The Bachelor,” “The Bachelorette”) when the series premieres MONDAY, AUGUST 9 (8:00-10:00 p.m., ET), on ABC.
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.
In 2009 Rycroft joined ABC News as a special contributor for “Good Morning America,” delivering fun and uplifting stories from across the country and from Hollywood’s most glamorous red carpets. She also co-hosted “Dick Clark’s Rockin’ New Year’s Eve” for ABC where she appeared alongside host Ryan Seacrest.
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.
