Variety- ABC is capitalizing off of two of their biggest franchises, ordering two spinoff series for both “The Bachelor” and “Dancing With the Stars,” Variety has learned. The network has greenlit a sports-themed “Bachelor” spinoff and a kids version of “Dancing With the Stars.” “The Bachelor Winter Games” will feature former participants from past seasons of “The Bachelor” and “The Bachelorette” from arch rivals to villains. Described by ABC as “an ode to the Winter Olympic Games” that will “take competitive dating to a chilling new level,” the spinoff will reunite the all-stars at a luxurious winter resort where they will go head-to-head in winter-themed athletic challenges, including the toughest sport of all – love. “Bachelor” creator Mike Fleiss will serve as executive producer, along with Martin Hilton. Next Entertainment and Warner Horizon Unscripted Television are producing. “The Bachelor Winter Games” will premiere in February 2018.

So basically The Challenge? I’ve never watched The Challenge but I ran this by my pal Clem and he said it’s pretty much exactly like The Challenge. I love it. Copy the shit outta them. Might as well. If Instagram can copy Snapchat then The Bachelor can copy The Challenge. I don’t know how this is gonna work and I don’t care. It’s gonna be great. Bring EVERYBODY back, get them drunk on a snowy mountain, throw in some stupid challenges and let the drama fly. Gimme the twins. Gimme Chad. Gimme Corrine. Gimme Chris Soul…….gimme newly-single Ben H and Lauren B. Gimme Jared and don’t tell him Ashley I. is gonna be there. It’s a can’t-miss idea. Think about Bachelor In Paradise for a second. That show literally has no point. Zero. Zilch. Nada. There’s no challenge or goal at the end. They just put people on a beach in Mexico, force feed them alcohol and let them fuck. This winter games idea is the same idea except it’s cold and we’ll get to watch these idiots fail at challenges. Ratings through the ROOF. I cannot wait for this.
