If you love the Olympics, but think it would be better if the athletes also all fell in love and hooked up on national TV than The Bachelor Winter Games is the show for you. ABC is making 14 international Bachelor and Bachelorette contestants and 14 American contestants literally compete for love.
The 28 BWG contestants will be staying the Bachelor Villa in The Hermitage Club in Vermont. It’s there that they will partake in different winter-esque challenges like skiing and ice skating. The winners of each challenge will get a date card. Of course, the show will be hosted by Chris Harrison. Chris will also be joined by ESPN’s Hannah Storm and KABC-TV’s Ashley Brewer.
According to Cosmopolitan, Bachelor faves Trista, Ryan Sutter, JoJo Fletcher, Rachel Lindsey and current Bachelor Arie Luyendyk will all make appearances.
As of right now only 12 of the 14 American BWG contestants have been revealed, so the last two have to be some pretty big Bachelor names. Hopefully, it will be two African-American women because the female contestants are all looking very white.
Two international cast members don’t have photos. Jenny Helenius who is from Finland’s The Bachelor Season 1 and Jordan Mauger who is from New Zealand’s The Bachelor Season 2.
The four-episode series will be from February 13 to February 22. Click through the gallery to see the full cast.
The two unannounced female contestants have been revealed! Bibiana and Lauren G from Arie Luyendyk’s season of The Bachelor are going to be playing in the Winter Games.
ABC had to wait to announce the two contestants until they were eliminated from the season.
