ABC orders 'Bachelor' all-stars spinoff
ABC has confirmed that a Bachelor/Bachelorette spinoff show will air this summer, says The Hollywood Reporter.

Bachelor Pad will reportedly feature 20 previous contestants living together in a house and completing challenges inspired by past seasons. An eviction will then take place at the end of every show.

Chris Harrison has signed on to host and it is believed that the series will premiere in the late summer following the Bachelorette finale.

"All these people have been friends, been enemies, they date each other and bring all this great backstory to the show. It seemed like there was an opportunity to combine that world with a new competitive reality show," said executive producer Martin Hilton.

The contestants have not been revealed yet, but Hilton teased that several memorable names and former winners had signed on.

Bachelor Pad will be produced by Mike Fleiss's Next Entertainment in association with Warner Horizon. Seven episodes have been ordered so far.
