The Bachelor Pad's All-Star Cast Revealed!
So who's moving into The Bachelor Pad?
On Wednesday, ABC announced the cast of its new spinoff, featuring 19 of the most beloved, memorable and controversial alumni from past seasons of The Bachelor and The Bachelorette.
On the reality show, 19 familiar men and women will face off for a $250,000 prize -- and maybe a new soulmate -- as they live, love and compete together in the "Bachelor Pad" mansion. Premiering Monday August 9, the series will feature weekly challenges for immunity and the chance to date a fellow housemate, with house votes eliminating a bachelor or bachelorette each week.
The show will be co-hosted by Chris Harrison and Melissa Rycroft. "We've always wanted to do an all-star edition," Harrison said during a Wednesday radio appearance on On Air With Ryan Seacrest. "We decided to come up with just a kind of fun, don't-think-too hard summer franchise."
Adding that the combustible cast must share "two or three bathrooms," Harrison teased, "We put them in one house, sleeping in one room. You get this many hot girls and hot guys in one house and things happen!"
