ABC Orders Bachelor Pad, a Big Brother-Like Bachelor Spinoff

ABC Bringing Back Bachelors and Bachelorettes For Big Brother-Like Show

"20 strangers, picked to live in a house, work together, and have their lives taped . . ." OK, it's not exactly The Real World, and they're not strangers (at least to fans), but ABC is now taking a shot at a similar setup with its revamp of The Bachelor.

Titled Bachelor Pad, the show will bring together past contestants from the show (and its spinoff, The Bachelorette) to cohabitate and compete in challenges, many inspired by incidents from the previous seasons. Chris Harrison will, of course, serve as host, with certain players getting the boot in each episode. The series will most likely air in late Summer, so prepare yourself for tons of gratuitous jacuzzi scenes.

ABC hasn't announced which familiar faces will return, but I'm already making my own wish list. For women, I'd like to see tiara-wearing Erica from The Bachelor: Rome (you know she'd provide good soundbites!) and Stephanie, the sweet widower from Jason Mesnick's season, could serve as house mom; for guys, I'm hoping for Graham, the hot pro basketball player who got the boot from DeAnna Pappas.

Those are my early picks, but who would you like to see on the show?

Erica Rose should be on the bachelor pad for sure.

i am not a fan of the bachelor but i might watch this just to see who hooks up and who goes crazy. you know those people are so insecure that some good drama will go down.

thats kind of funny - but i think that i'll probably end up checking it out to see who comes back. :) this will show that some of them really are just looking to be on a reality show rather than looking for love don't you think?

Erica was kind of crazy, but definitely Graham. Perhaps Jeremy from that season, too. And maybe Bevin and Nicole from Andy Baldwin's season... and Reid! I'm still sad that he isn't the newest Bachelor, but I'd love to see him in this.
