The Bachelor Winter Games! Wintertime Just Heated Up!

Premieres: Tomorrow, February 13 at 8pm

Time: 4 weeks

Filmed in: Vermont (I am so bummed I missed the filming! If you caught it, email me!)

Cast: On the American team are blast from the past Ben Higgins (btdubs he and Lauren broke up and she’s happily in love with someone else according to her Instagram), Dean (for the third time offender), Ashley I., Eric from Rachel Lindsay’s series is back! Jamey, Josiah (Rachel’s baby that she sat), Luke (from JoJo’s season), Michael (from Desiree’s season), blast from the past Clare (from Juan Pablo’s season), Lesley (from Sean Lowe’s season – no idea who she is), Bibiana (from Arie’s season). Additional Bachelor/Bachelorettes will be announced. I have a couple guesses from those that just got kicked off Arie’s season tonight.

Full cast includes players from Australia, New Zealand, Japan, China, Finland, United Kingdom, Sweden, and Canada.

Premise: There is not much detail on the ABC blog other than that Bachelors and Bachelorettes from around the world will compete with each other in faux Olympic Games, representing their country and in the most trying sport: love. A preview of the games include winter biathlon, speed skating, and ice dancing with date cards given to the challenge winners. Love triangles, tears and challenges abound.

Best Part: Ashley I is back! And in full Ashley I. force. Let’s see who friend zones her and who she falls in love with. Who doesn’t love watching Ashley I. find love?

Back in the day I blogged about the German Bachelorette. So this Winter Games is that times 10 and mixed with all of the other Bachelors and Bachelorettes from the international shows. It sounds like a mash of Bachelor in Paradise and Bachelor Pad for a shortened period of time.

In related news, Benoit from Canada’s team can have my vote any day.
