After years of success with the reality dating competitions, The Bachelor and The Bachelorette, ABC has decided to add another reality venture to their franchise with the premiere of the new reunion-meets-dating-meets-challenges show, Bachelor Pad. At the helm of Bachelor Pad are longtime host, Chris Harrison, and former Bachelor contestant, Melissa Rycroft. Keep reading for more details on the season premiere and what to expect…

Over the years, The Bachelor and The Bachelorette has seen their fair share of memorable characters and drama. In an effort to capitalize on the success of the reality dating shows, ABC has announced plans to reunite all-stars from previous seasons for a new reality competition, Bachelor Pad.

According to a release from ABC, Bachelor Pad will feature “some of the most unforgettable contestants and suitors” in the history of The Bachelor and The Bachelorette. The contestants will move in together and compete in challenges and dates for cash prizes. The show has already started filming but the cast has yet to be announced. Every week contestants will be voted out of the mansion until one winner is rewarded with the grand prize of $250,000. And of course, a few competitors might also find love in the process.

Reporting for hosting duties of Bachelor Pad is none other than longtime host of The Bachelor and The Bachelorette, Chris Harrison. He will be joined by former Bachelor cast-off, Melissa Rycroft, who is thrilled to have the opportunity to return to the mansion in a very different role. “I’m excited.” Rycroft tells People magazine. “It’s fun. It’s a brand new experience for me. I’ve never been on that side but I’m anxious. I’m excited and ready to start.”

Bachelor Pad airs on ABC on August 9th.
