Do you like The Bachelor but wish it had 1000 percent more falling down in skis? And starred The Bachelorette runner-up Peter Kraus? Then today is your lucky day, and this coming winter your lucky season. Bachelor franchise creator Mike Fleiss took to Twitter Wednesday evening to announce that fan-favorite Kraus will be appearing on the frosty new spinoff. “Yes, Peter will be looking for love — and going for the gold — on #TheBachelor Winter Games!!!!,” he declared.
Instead of following the traditional dating competition format of The Bachelor or The Bachelorette, or even the romantic chaos of The Bachelor in Paradise, The Bachelor Winter Games will, as previously reported, be something of an “ode to the Winter Olympic Games,” in which contestants “go head-to-head in winter-themed athletic challenges, including the toughest sport of all — love.” Fleiss also tweeted that the show’s cast will include “sexy international Bachelors and Bachelorettes from the dozens of countries that also produce #TheBachelor.” So let the games … begin! In … February 2018!
