ABC Planning "Bachelor Pad" Competition Spinoff

by at . Comments

All the Rozlyn drama must really be paying off for ABC.

The network is reportedly putting together a spinoff of The Bachelor where contestants live and compete against each other, like Big Brother. The title? Wait for it:

Bachelor Pad.

We couldn't make something like that up, and yet it makes perfect sense. Copy CBS' long-running show, then add hot, quasi-well known stars of yours. Brilliant.

The series will reunite 20 contestants from the previous 13 seasons of The Bachelor and five seasons of The Bachelorette, and will likely debut later this year.

Will Bachelor Pad feature any Jake Pavelka castoffs?

Contestants will live in a house and compete in challenges, some inspired by incidents from past seasons, concluding each week with Big Brother-style evictions.

ABC has ordered seven episodes, with venerable Bachelor franchise host-pimp Chris Harrison on board to call the shots. "Top" players are supposedly on board.

We may laugh, but The Bachelor is a cost-effective, continual ratings powerhouse for the alphabet network, and this week's episode was no exception.

All we can hope is that Molly and Melissa come on the spinoff. Awkward!
