Read on to learn more.
The Bachelor to air Summer Games during the Summer Olympics
ABC wants to give Bachelor Nation an alternative to the 2020 Summer Olympic Games. As TV Guide reported, The Bachelor Summer Games will debut this summer. Rob Mills, ABC’s Senior Vice President of Alternative Series, Specials & Late-Night Programming, made the announcement during the Bachelor Party podcast on Monday, February 17. Summer Games will be similar to The Bachelor Winter Games in which Bachelor Nation favorites compete in Olympic-inspired games.
“I think it’s going to be really fun,” Mill said. “We found a really great place to hold it… But I mean, it’s going to be so fun seeing these people in these great [sports]. I mean, track and field, swimming… this is a real Olympics.”
Summer Games will make its debut prior to Bachelor in Paradise and after The Bachelorette. Since the Summer Olympics will run from July 24 to August 9, this series could coincide with the real Olympic games. Prior to that, The Bachelor: Listen to Your Heart, is a new music-themed spin off series that’s set to debut in the spring.
Listen to Your Heart promo looks dramatic
Bachelor Nation never knew they needed this show until now. This new spin off series will have 20 men and women who are musicians who also want to find love, according to E! News . They must have watched too many romantic movies, because they want to fall in love with someone during the songwriting process.
It is not clear how this show will work since ABC’s pitch is several paragraphs long. The new series will also feature JoJo Fletcher and Jordan Rodgers, both who are not known for their music talent. It gets so dramatic that someone gets upset and smashes their guitar. Here is the official description of the show.
“The Bachelor Presents: Listen to Your Heart unites two of the most emotionally powerful forces in human life: music and love, as 20 single men and women embark on an incredible journey to find love through music. Singing well-known songs, both individually and as couples, they will look to form attractions through the melodies, find and reveal their feelings and ultimately, fall in love.”
The Bachelor Presents: Listen to Your Heart premieres on Monday, April 13 at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
The Bachelor is looking for senior citizens
Because senior citizens deserve to find love as well. The producers are hoping to find a crop of senior citizens who want to find love. They’re looking for people over the age of 65, according to The Blast. The rumors started when producer Lindsay Liles posted an official casting call to her Instagram page back in January looking for “active and outgoing single men and women” who are in their “golden years” and are “ready for a committed relationship.”
The current season of The Bachelor is the worst yet. Peter Weber has been criticized for making stupid decisions. He insists that he’s not doing them on purpose. He feels that he’s done his best with the information he has been given. It looks like ABC is trying to make Bachelor Nation forget this messy season by giving them more shows to look forward to.
